The case of Eva Marie Murphy is a Halloween mystery. On October 31, 1988, Eva was living at a boarding house in Miami, Florida. There aren’t many details made publicly available regarding her missing person case, but on that day, Eva left the house and never came back. According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), Eva’s loved ones have never seen or heard from her again.
The 29-year-old old reportedly had two children that were left in her grandmother’s care. Eva was known to frequent the Miami-Dade area of Perrine and vanished from the 10200 block of SW 176th Street.
At the time of her disappearance, Eva stood 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed anywhere between 160 to 185 pounds. She had brown hair and brown eyes. It’s noted in her case file that Eva has “Afro-Indian hair texture” and often wore her “curly/wavy hair in a short afro or up do.” Both of her ears are pierced and Eva has a scar on her abdomen, scars on the soles of her feet, and a small birthmark on one of her fingers (possibly her thumb). It’s not known what she was wearing when she disappeared, but it’s said that her typical attire included blue jeans, sneakers, and a gold chain with a gold cross pendant. She also went by the name “Eva Marie Rogers.”
Anyone with information about this mysterious cold case is urged to contact the Miami-Dade Police Department at 305-715-3300.

Police classified them as runaways & only changed their case to “endangered missing” 20 years later.
This is a case I initially came across when I first launched Our Black Girls and it continues to weigh on my heart. I’ve written about it on social media but I haven’t dedicated space here on the site for a full story, until today. It involves siblings, 15-year-old Monica Bennett and her 13-year-old brother Michael, and it centers on how they both went missing from Brunswick, Georgia on June 21, 1989. (more…)
