This is yet another unfortunate case of a young girl reportedly snatched from the street. It was the morning of January 8, 1980, when six-year-old Kelly Juanita Staples left her home in Chicago, Illinois and made her way to school. It was only a three-block walk, but somewhere along the way, Kelly went missing.
Years later, a man accused of murder claimed to have killed Kelly. He also confessed to the slayings of a number of other girls. However, authorities learned that his confession was just a hoax. Nothing he claimed was true and he was no longer considered to be a suspect. Kelly’s case remains unsolved and police believe that she was abducted by a person outside of her family.
At the time of her disappearance, Kelly was 3 feet tall and 42 pounds. She has black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, and a birthmark on the left-middle area of her chest. Kelly was reportedly last seen wearing a brown and white striped cap, brown scarf, red plaid coat, blue jeans, and blue rubber boots. She would be 46-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information regarding Kelly’s disappearance is urged to contact the Chicago Police Department at 312-744-838 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about the investigation regarding Kelly Juanita Staples to reignite the investigation into her disappearance. She is out sister and her life matters.

It is always unbelievable when a young person found deceased goes unidentified, especially for decades. In the Spring of 1982 on March 16, it is reported that an off-duty firefighter made his way to the Milwaukee River to check on his boat. It was there that he came across the remains of a young woman—later named Milwaukee Jane Doe—floating between two metal barrels on the pier. Medical examiners did their best to pull identifiers with the hopes of finding out who she may be, but in the decades that have followed, authorities don’t seem any closer to learning Jane Doe’s name.
