Circumstances

MacCrossen lived in Newberry, Florida at the time of her disappearance. She was last heard from on August 17, 2007. This was when she called her mother in Michigan. And she said she was at a Greyhound bus stop in Gainesville, Florida. MacCrossen never contacted her family again. They reported her missing in December of that year. There’s been no activity on MacCrossen’s credit cards or Social Security number since her disappearance. She had a violent relationship with her boyfriend, Andrelo Lasuard Witcher. And he was allegedly very controlling of her.

Backstory

Shortly before her disappearance, MacCrossen fled to Michigan. And she arrived at a relative’s home with two black eyes. After spending a month in Michigan, she returned to Florida to deal with a misdemeanor traffic ticket. She called her family from the Gainesville bus station to tell them she’d arrived safely. And this was the last time they heard from her. She failed to appear in court to answer to the traffic charge and a warrant was issued for her arrest. MacCrossen told her family she was afraid of Witcher. But she never sought a restraining order against him. She once accused him of sexual battery. But the charges were dropped because MacCrossen wouldn’t cooperate with the investigation.

Witcher’s Criminal History

There were multiple documented instances of domestic violence between them. At one point, Witcher threatened MacCrossen with a gun. He beat her and held her captive in her home. Witcher did this for two days before MacCrossen escaped. Witcher is a registered sex offender. And he has a criminal record with domestic violence. He also has a history of weapons and drug charges. Investigators interviewed him about MacCrossen. And he said he had no idea where she was. In April 2016, five and a half years after her disappearance, Witcher was faced charges in her case. He was charged with manslaughter in her case. He is awaiting trial (as of 2016).

Legal situation

It is unclear if Witcher ever went to trial in Heather’s disappearance. Also, Witcher became the suspect in another missing woman’s case. It was that of Kamrie Mitchell, in 2012. Early in the morning of August 25, while she was at her father’s home, he entered the residence uninvited and threatened her and others. Mitchell disappeared later that day. Witcher wasn’t located until September. He was arrested and charged with burglary while armed. Witcher was also charged with possession of a weapon by a felon and failure to comply with sex offender registration. Mitchell remains missing and no one has been charged in her case.

Prior to her involvement with Witcher, MacCrossen maintained regular contact with her family in Michigan. And she often asked how her young son was doing. He had lived in Michigan with his father at the time of her disappearance. Foul play is suspected in her case due to the circumstances involved.

Appeal

Heather Ann MacCrossen has been missing for over 11 years. It is likely that she is a victim of foul play because of the circumstances involved. Her ex-partner is charged with only manslaughter in her disappearance, not murder. There is no statute of limitations on murder, but I’m sure there is with manslaughter. This hardly seems like justice. Whatever the charge in a homicide death, whether manslaughter or first-degree murder, the end result is the same. A person’s whole earthly life has been take away. And the people left behind are left with a major loss in their lives. Their pain will never end. Perhaps new information about her ex-boyfriend can help give Heather’s loved ones a measure of peace and answers. It is unclear if her boyfriend’s trial ever was completed.
