Prior to her disappearance Jeannette Drzewiecki was a dancer at Doll’s House, a strip club on Andrews Highway at the time. Her dancer name was “Cherry”. She had also recently taken a job as a waitress and had given birth just days prior to her disappearance.

On the evening of September 13, 1982 Drzewiecki went to Doll’s House in the North end of Odessa for a ‘meeting’ to discuss something with another worker (or her employer). She had a drink or two then said she was going to go home to her daughter. She was never heard from again.

A week later her vehicle, a red pick-up truck, was found abandoned in the South end of Odessa.

It’s been over 30 years since she went missing and authorities suspect foul play.

Most agencies and databases say give the above information however, NAMPN says “Drzewiecki made dinner, kissed her 11 day old daughter and husband goodbye, took the family’s truck and was never seen or heard from again. ”

Also, agencies have her down as 19 and others say she was 25 years old when she went missing.

Another case with similarities is that of Kathy Brownfield Goad missing from Dallas County just a couple of weeks after Drzewiecki.

el-dorado-jane-doePhotos of  the unidentified victim (circa 1990)

Estimated Time of Death: The victim died the same day that she was discovered.
Estimated age: 18-21 years old
Approximate Height and Weight: 5’11″; 150-160 lbs.

Aliases: Cheryl Ann Wick, Shannon Wiley, Kelly Carr, Kelly Karr, Mercedes
Other: Fingerprints, Dental and DNA are available.

This victim was found deceased at the Whitehall Motel in El Dorado, Arkansas on July 10, 1991. Authorities have determined that she resided in the Dallas, Texas region; Shreveport, Louisiana; and Little Rock, Arkansas prior to her death. At the time of her death, she was a resident of El Dorado and had been there for several years according to some reports.

It’s possible that the victim had been a runaway from the Florida area, which may be the reason she withheld her true identity.

Her murderer is James Roy McAlphin and he is in prison now for her murder. She was living at another address in El Dorado but went to the motel where he dragged her into the parking lot and beat her, then took her into the motel room and shot her. The victim came to El Dorado from Dallas in early 1991 where she used the name “Kelly Carr/Karr”. She had worked as a prostitute at the Carousel in Dallas. After leaving Dallas, she stopped off in Shreveport and then arrived in El Dorado. The victim was frequently at the hospital emergency room from beating and was arrested in May of 1991 for bad checks and she gave the name “Cheryl Ann Wick” from Minneapolis. Previous to her death, she worked as a topless dancer in Little Rock and that is where she told her “friends” she was originally from Florida.


After her death, they found a Bible in her belongings. There were several names in it: Willie James Stroud, Sharon Yvette Stroud, Ladonna Elaine Stroud, Johnny Lee Stroud, Viola Elizabeth Ross Stroud, Donna Jean Stroud, Bobbie Joan Stroud and Willie James Dantzler Sr. They subsequently found that this was a Black family in Irving, Texas and they believe that she lived with the family for a while.

At some time she was arrested in Dallas and Houston with the aliases: “Cheryl Wick”, “Sharon Wiley”, “Kelly Carr” and “Mercedes”.

When found, she had an Arkansas ID card which read “Cheryl Ann Wick”. They located the parents’ address and when they called, Cheryl herself answered and said that she did not know her. The police believe that this was a case of identity theft. A detective found a copy of a letter sent from the police to the FBI stating that the suspect had said that her name was “Kelly Lee Carr” age 24, and that she was wanted in Virginia and along the East Coast for bank robbery.

James Roy McAlphin is no longer in prison for her murder, he is in the Robertson unit in Abilene, TX for a sexual assault in Travis County, TX. He was due to be released in 2010.

Missing Fox Executive’s Sister Speaks Out On His Disappearance

Gavin Smith Headshot - P 2012

Pictured; Gavin Smith (born December 10, 1954 — disappeared May 1, 2012)

Where could he be?

On the night of May 1, 2012, Smith left a friend’s house in Oak Park, California, where he had been staying due to reported marital difficulties. It does not appear as if he had planned to be away for an extended period. When he failed to pick up one of his sons for school the next morning, his family reported him missing.The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.

His sister and his wife talk with THR about their struggle for answers as his office is packed up, clues remain scarce and a dramatic turn dead-ends.

In late August, the personal effects of missing 20th Century Fox executive Gavin Smith were quietly removed from his Calabasas, Calif., office and delivered by the studio to his West Hills home. But the 57-year-old Smith’s wife, Lisa, says the boxes, which contain such items as framed family photos and golf trophies — “everything the sheriffs didn’t take” — remain on her porch. More than four months after Smith disappeared May 1, the distribution executive’s belongings are a painful reminder that he still is gone.

“It’s been tough to bring them into the house,” says Smith.

STORY: Gavin Smith Mystery: Family Resumes Search for Missing Twentieth Century Fox Exec

There had been some cause for hope. The case appeared to take a dramatic turn in early June, when authorities searched the residence of Chandrika Creech, a woman with whom Smith is alleged to have had an affair, and her husband, John Creech, an admitted middleman in Los Angeles‘ illicit drug world. But Smith’s sister, Tara Addeo, and John Creech’s attorney, Daniel Teola, tell THR that it’s their understanding that nothing has come of the search.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department still considers the Smith investigation a missing person’s case and not a homicide probe, according to department spokesman Steve Whitmore. But Addeo says that while she has hope, her optimism is waning. “Where could he possibly be?” she asks. “I know that Gavin would not hurt himself, and I have a hard time believing that Gavin would ever walk away from his sons. The only other alternative is that there would have been foul play.”

Smith was last seen on the night of May 1 at a friend’s residence in Oak Park, a Ventura County community not far from his office. He departed from the property in his black Mercedes-Benz E420 sedan between 9 and 10 p.m.; the 6-foot-6 Smith, who played basketball for UCLA during the mid-1970s, was last seen wearing purple pants and black and gray shoes.

Forensic pathologist Michael Baden says that even though investigators have not publicly named a suspect, they could have people in their sights — assuming foul play was involved. “The police are waiting to get some information,” he says. “Pieces of clothing, somebody who saw him walk into the woods and never come out — and that might be sufficient to bring charges.”

STORY: Missing Fox Exec Gavin Smith Had Relationship With Woman Whose Home Was Searched (Report)

Although no suspects have been named, on June 8, investigators and a SWAT team swooped into the West Hills house where the Creeches reside, searching it for several hours and leaving with boxes, a computer and a black Audi Q7 SUV in tow. But no arrests were made, investigators have not said how the Creeches relate to the Smith case, and Smith never met John Creech, according to Teola. A June 21 E! News report that cited an unnamed source said that Smith had met Chandrika Creech in therapy in 2008 and began an on-and-off affair with her. “I believe Chandrika and Gavin Smith had a prior relationship, and so that is the reason for the search,” Teola tells THR.

Baden says that an affair would catch investigators’ attention, “but that doesn’t prove anything,” he adds. According to Addeo, who says that she speaks with detectives on the case regularly, the search of the Creech residence didn’t reveal anything. “That was very frustrating,” she says. Lisa Smith, who has sons Evan, Austin and Dylan with her husband, declined to discuss the Creeches.

Whitmore would not confirm Addeo’s account of detectives’ investigation of the Creeches. “They wouldn’t release that [information] if indeed that were true because it is an ongoing investigation,” says Whitmore.

Teola notes that his client was not questioned by police and has not been contacted by the investigators since his house was searched. “I’m just letting sleeping dogs lie; they haven’t asked me anything, requested anything,” says Teola. John Creech, however, has other legal issues. On Sept. 25, he will be sentenced in a drug case that stems from a 2010 bust in Glendale. Teola, a criminal defense attorney, says Creech has admitted to police that he was a middleman between drug dealers and producers and pleaded no contest to one count of selling and transporting cocaine. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

STORY: Authorities Search Home in Hunt for Missing Fox Exec Gavin Smith

An 18-year veteran of Fox’s distribution department, Smith was the branch manager for theaters in Dallas and Oklahoma City, serving as a liaison between the studio and theaters. A source with knowledge of the situation says the studio plans to fill Smith’s position (co-workers have been divvying up his duties) but has yet to do so. Fox declined comment.

Smith and Addeo say they remain confident investigators will solve the case, and the family’s $20,000 reward remains in place. But apparent breakthroughs — such as a reported sighting of the Fox exec on May 7 in Morro Bay — have turned out to be false. “We are devastated,” says Smith. “My sons, they can barely talk. We can’t even have a memorial service for my husband.”
