Classification: Non-Family Abduction

  • Full Name: Angelica Maria Gandara
  • Birthdate: February 5, 1974
  • Missing Date: July 14, 1985
  • Last Seen In: Temple, Bell County, TX
  • Age at Disappearance: 11 years old
  • Age Now: 39 years old
  • Race/Gender: Hispanic Female
  • Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 4’10” tall, 85 pounds
  • Hair/Eyes: Black hair; brown eyes.
  • Marks, Scars: Mole on her nose
  • Clothing: Last seen wearing a black and white short sleeve pullover shirt with the word “Sasson” printed on the front, black shorts, white socks and white shoes.

On July 14, 1985, after visiting her grandmother, Angelica headed to her home in Temple, TX, on foot. The walk was only two blocks away from her house and it was something she had done numerous times before.

She never made it home.

Angelica was allegedly seen in a 1977 Chevrolet pickup truck with an unidentified white male and female. The pickup’s hood, front fender and bed were red and white in color, the doors were blue and white, and the top was white. The pickup was dented, dirty and unkept. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

In 2007,  over 22 years after Angelica disappeared, authorities named serial killer David E. Penton as a possible suspect in her case, as well as several other missing girls. He has been serving a prison sentence in Texas since 1987 and allegedly signed a plea deal admitting responsibility for three missing girls from Texas. He didn’t admit to the kidnapping of Angelica however.

David Penton kidnapped and murdered 5-year-old Christi Lynn Meek (pictured) as she played outside an apartment complex in Mesquite where she lived with her mother.

Another suspect, Ramiro R. Ibarra is another possible suspect. In 1997, he was convicted and sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a 16-year-old from Waco, Texas. He was an acquaintance of the victim’s family and broke into their home and committed the crime.

Other witnesses claimed to have seen Angelica in San Antonio, TX but those claims are unconfirmed.

As of 2013,  the whereabouts of Angelica Gandara remains unknown.

Identity of Victim Found In A Chimney At A Dorchester Apartment Complex In 2005 Still A Mystery

jane_doe_found_in_massachusetts

Both reconstructions were created based on the description of the unidentified woman. The photos should not be the sole identifying factor.

unidentified-female-massachusetts

 

  • The victim was discovered on October 14, 2005 in Dorchester, Suffolk County, Massachusetts located in New England, USA
  • Estimated Date of Death: She could have been deceased anywhere from 3 months to five years before discovery
  • Victim is believed to be a woman in her twenties or thirties with a small/medium build
  • She had long, dark brown hair, possibly even black, that went past her shoulders
  • She had plastic nails painted red. It’s unclear if they were drugstore nails or if she went to a nail salon
  • Medical examiners believe she bore at least one child prior to her death
  • An Anthropologist conducted an extensive examination and population profile of the deceased and the results denote strong Caucasian genetics. However there were several other genetic identifiers/traits pointing to population mixture, such as her mouth, and jawline. She may or may not have appeared to be Caucasian by her skin color, or other visual ethnic features. She may also have appeared to be Caucasian, and claimed or been of another ethnic background independently. Therefore, these facts should not eliminate the possibility of her being from either the Caucasian/Hispanic, Black or Asian population.

At first, chimney sweep Mike Scanlan thought the long spindly thing was a tree branch as he pulled it free of the debris behind a piece of particle board at the bottom of a disused Dorchester apartment complex incinerator.

His flashlight showed the object in its beam. Red plastic fingernails glinted.
Scanlan found a body buried in the incinerator cavity. There was not a single broken bone. There were no signs of injury.

Boston Police Sgt. Paul Donovan assumed control of the investigation at 17-19 Winter St., searching for the path by which the woman’s skeleton ended up at the complex.

Without available witnesses, and with only what the bones could tell his team – Donovan faced a difficult prospect.

“Usually the evidence will take you where it takes you,” Donovan said. “In this case, we’re lacking evidence.”

The dead woman was between 25 and 35 years old. She probably stood 5-foot-2-inches. She was deemed of white heritage, but also possessed Hispanic, Asian or black features.

One outstanding identifier: her partial dental plate, either made in the Caribbean, or elsewhere by a Haitian or Jamaican dentist.

A dental expert told Donovan the plate was probably black market or underground. Find the dentist, and Donovan could find her name, her family, where she lived. Unlicensed plate-makers, however, mean unlisted dentists.

Donovan looked for witnesses.

“I think she was there since 2002,” Donovan said. “Somebody who had some association with the building — a resident, an employee or someone familiar with a resident or employee — has some knowledge about whatever happened.”

Between January 2002 and January 2005, Donovan said, an access door to the building basement was typically left unlocked. Whoever buried the woman knew that, he said, and knew of the chimney as a hiding place.

Another way to break the case, Donovan surmised, was to find anyone who knew the woman before she disappeared. He needed a picture of her in life. He turned to Boston Police forensic artist Gregory Mahoney.

Mahoney was able to produce a computer reconstruction of the woman’s features.
Until someone recognizes her picture, Donovan is in charge of a file full of questions.

“In all my other cases, you try not to let your gut influence you too much,” he said. Now, for Donovan, gut feeling is critical to the completion of his investigation.

He’s watching Winter Street, waiting, and reaching out to Boston once again for anyone who saw anything around that basement.

Photos of Carlos Diaz missing for over two decades

Image

Age Progression sketch created in 2006 showing what Carlos might look like twenty years after his disappearance, at age 52.

Date of Birth:  11/10/1954 
Date Missing:  12/23/1986 
Age at time of disappearance:  32 
City Missing From:  Bronx 
State Missing From:  New York 
Gender:  Male 
Race:  Hispanic 
Height:  5 ft 8 in 
Weight:  170 lbs 
Hair Color:  Dark Brown 
Eye Color:  Brown 
Complexion:  Fair 

Identifying Characteristics: Has the initials C.D tattooed on his left hand 

Unsolved Disappearance:  Carlos was last seen at his family’s home two days before Christmas, December 23, 1986. He hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Suzie, the family dog, died and Carlos said he would be right back, that he was going to bury her. He did not have any identification (ID) with him. When he didn’t return, the missing man’s brother went to go look for him and noticed Suzie hadn’t been buried. Carlos was never seen again. He was a father of one and left behind a baby daughter and family. His family feels he would have never left on his own.
 
Carlos had previously suffered a head injury by being struck in the head, and has another medical condition. Doctors stated it was possible that Carlos could lose his memory at any given time. 

His family created a Myspace page: Help Find Carlos Diaz under the about me section, a family member wrote: 

*I need your help to find A Brother/Uncle/Father and Son who has been missing. Carlos is the type of person who loved being outdoors with his family/friends and dog Susie., but most of all his daughter Lesa. Wherever he had to go he was always riding his bike. He took that bike everywhere. Laughter & fun was always his Motto. He’s the type of person that would bring a smile to your face if you were down & out. He is a fun & loving person to be with, but on December 23, 1986 the family dog (susie) died everything changed. Carlos said he would be right back because he was going to bury Susie. After he left is when we realized he did not take any identification with him. It was getting late and my other brother Nelson went to go looking for him and all he found was Susie (unburied) but not Carlos. My mother and sister went to the police station to file a missing persons report, they handed a detective a photo of Carlos and what happened and his response was that my brother wasn’t eligible for a missing person report. He had to be between the ages of very young to 16 and 50-60 yrs. of age. So anyone between those ages were considered to have taken off. They kept his photo. Calls were made there after, months went by and the responses were “We do not have anything new”. Carlos would of never left his family especially his daughter. We would like to put some closure to this, so if anyone has seen him.
