Lakiesha Buckner Missing

Is this a case of a teenage runaway or a young girl who ran into a sinister character? Lakiesha Bucker, 16, was known to leave her home without notice. Although she was a habitual runaway, she never stayed away long and always made the decision to return home. She kept close acquaintances with Hispanic male migrant workers who Lakeisha’s mother planned on pressing charges against. According to the missing teen’s mom, the grown men were supplying her daughter with drugs and alcohol and having sexual contact with the 16-year-old minor.

The last time anyone saw Lakiesha Buckner was at her home on East Fannin Street in Marshall, Texas, where the young girl was born and raised, in the morning hours of August 13, 1999. Investigators believe that Lakeisha left of her own volition, but she’s never been seen or heard from again. The search for Lakiesha was already a desperate one, but her health concerns were also a worry for authorities. Not only does she have a heart murmur, but Lakiesha also has learning disabilities.

At the time of her disappearance, Lakeisha Buckner was 4 feet 7 inches tall and 115 pounds. She has black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, a mole over her left eye, and a scar on her right leg. She goes by the nicknames “Keisha” or “Kiki” (could be spelled “Ki-Ki” or “Ke-Ke”). Lakiesha Buckner has an overbite and one of her upper teeth overlaps another. Her hair was last styled in long braided extensions. Her middle name is “Trenail.” Someone may have spotted her after she was reported missing in the company of an adult Hispanic male.

Anyone with information regarding Lakiesha’s disappearance is urged to contact the Marshall Police Department at (903) 935-7831 or their local authorities.

Arverne Jane Doe 1991

Some of the most heartbreaking stories are about people who pass away or who have been murdered only to never be identified.

It’s reported that her state of decomposition was severe and an investigation revealed she’d been dead for at least a few months before she was located. A medical examiner determined Arverne Jane Doe had been beaten to death in either late 1990 or sometime in early 1991.
