Her Case Today

At the time of her disappearance, Melanie was a freshman at Woburn High School. She was looking forward to her upcoming transfer to Northeast Vocational High School. Her parents struggled with alcohol. Thus her grandparents and aunts raised her. Her grandmother has since passed away. In August 1992, an anonymous telephone caller told police to look for Melanie’s body in an area pond. Investigators have searched that pond. But they found no evidence leading to Melanie. Police now believe that Melanie was the victim of foul play. And they believe that she is still in the general area.

In July 2017, Melanie’s family show that they have never given up looking for her and their pain remains. Just because a case is cold does not make reduce their pain.

In October 2017, it will be 28 years since Melanie was murdered at just 14 years of age. A child. Her remains hidden from those who love her…still hidden to this day. I always think about all the things in life she never got to experience, how much she missed out on, and how much we, her family and friends missed out on her being with us as we experienced life. What a wonderful woman she would have been today.
Today I received an “age progressed photo” from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children. When I looked at it, I thought “she looks familiar”. And it hit me..that’s because if Melanie had not been murdered, she would look similar to this today. I see her eyes, still beautiful. I hear her laughter, I see her smile. I feel her love in my heart. My beautiful Niece.
Rest in Peace Melanie, and rest assured, we love you and we will never give up searching to find your remains, to give you the burial that you deserve.
