Her case remains unsolved.

It’s unbelievable that a child can disappear and turn up murdered, and all you can find on the internet about the case is a brief paragraph. On September 18, 1992, eight-year-old Shamonica Brown disappeared around 6:00 p.m. Police searched for the little girl in her hometown of Saginaw, Michigan, but they weren’t able to piece together where she’d gone. They’d learn that she suffered a tragic fate four days later when her body was located.

The body of Shamonica Brown was found by police on the steps of the former Holy Rosary Catholic Church on South 13th Street. She’d been hidden behind a bush inside of a planter. Shamonica was reportedly only a few short blocks from home.

It’s reported that investigators had two suspects in mind, however, they’ve since died. Without more information to propel this near-30-year-old case to a resolution, the callous murder of Shamonica remains unsolved and forgotten. How she died and other gruesome details haven’t been shared, but the beautiful little girl was buried at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in her hometown.

A news clipping about the case shows that an unidentified publication spoke with Shamonica’s principal at Heavenrich Elementary School where she was a first-grade student. “Our worst fears have been realized,” Lawrence Wells reportedly said at the time. “This is a nightmare.” A little bit of searching turned up an obituary for Andy “Charles” Smith, and Shamonica Brown’s name is listed as his daughter. However, it’s unclear if it’s the same person. He passed away in 2017.

Daphne Jones Missing (1)

A young woman has been missing for over two decades and there doesn’t seem to be any movement on her case. It was just days after the New Year when Daphne Jones reportedly had enough. Reports state that the 22-year-old was a student at the University of New Orleans and moved out of the dormitory into an apartment off-campus. Daphne learned that she was pregnant, so she reportedly decided it was time to leave school, quit her part-time hostess job at Brennan’s Restaurant, and return home to Maryland to move back in with her mother. She vanished before that could happen. (more…)
