Like many women, 39-year-old Mary Louise Walker was trapped in a repetitive cycle of an on-again-off-again relationship with a dangerous man. Mary and her longtime boyfriend were known to have had a history of domestic violence in their relationship, and while several agreed that she needed to cut him off for good, not many believed that the brutality would be the central focus of her disappearance.
On December 16, 1995, Mary was at her home in Long Beach, California when things between her and her boyfriend turned hostile. A witness at the home with the couple told authorities that they saw the boyfriend punch Mary in the face, knocking her unconscious. It’s said that the boyfriend immediately told the witness to leave the house. Mary has not been seen or heard from since.
The boyfriend, who continues to be a suspect in Mary’s disappearance but hasn’t been formally named in public reports, is currently serving a prison sentence on unrelated crimes and charges. Investigators believe that Mary was murdered, but her case remains open, unsolved, and cold.
Mary is considered to be endangered missing and is a dependent adult. It is noted that she is illiterate and is said to have major difficulty functioning on her own.
At the time of her disappearance, Mary Louise Walker had a petite frame, standing at 4 feet 10 inches or 4 feet 11 inches and 90 pounds. One of her legs is longer than the other due to a childhood bout with polio. Mary has black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, and goes by the nickname “Wezzy.” She has bits of facial hair on her chin and a noticeable scar from her right hip down to her knee. Both of her ears have two piercings and her nose is pierced. Mary also has tattoos including three cherries on the left side of her back with the stems tied into a bow and a red and black rose with a banner that has the letters “DOC” on her left arm. Mary was last seen wearing a black and white long-sleeved shirt with black jeans and black corduroy shoes.
I once lived not far from where Mary was last seen, and it’s sobering to know that just a few zip codes away, this person who was dependent on those around her to nurture and care for her was being beaten, abused, and taken advantage of — and it may have led to her death.
Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Mary Louise Walker is urged to contact the Long Beach Police Department at 562-570-8810 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Mary Louise Walker to help reignite the investigation into her case. She is our sister and her life matters.
Beatrice Green, 38: Last Seen At Tennessee Home In 1994
When she didn’t show up at her sister’s home, her loved ones grew concerned.
Her life may have been unconventional, but the routine seemed to have worked for Beatrice Green. The 38-year-old has been described as a drifter, often falling out of contact with her family for weeks at a time. However, Beatrice would always eventually contact someone to let them know that she was safe, and each month, she was known to visit her sister’s home. Beatrice’s welfare checks were sent there monthly, so she would make sure to stop by and pick up her mail. (more…)
