Three days before Halloween in 2007, Janet Tillman left her pets outside of her residence. The abandoned animals had been left behind when the 49-year-old Belleville, Illinois resident was seen in East St. Louis, Illinois getting into a dark red car with a Black man in the area of Ninth Street and Exchange Avenue. She’s never been seen or heard from since.
Janet’s family, including her five siblings, were used to her unusual lifestyle. Her sister called her a “street person” and it’s reported that Janet liked to visit a truck stop over in Troy, Illinois on Route 203. She was also said to be a regular customer at a Flying J market in Atherton, Illinois. The missing woman’s family reportedly shared that Janet has spent most of her life working as a prostitute and records indicate that she has a few offenses for solicitation. Street sex workers are often targets for predators or nefarious characters, so it isn’t farfetched to suggest that Janet may have fallen victim to such a person. However, that is purely an expression of my own opinion and not based on anything I have researched in her case. For all anyone knows, Janet could be alive and well.
On November 5, 2007, just one day after her birthday, Janet Tillman was reported missing by her loved ones. There hasn’t been any movement on her case and if there have been persons of interest of suspects being looked at by investigators, they haven’t been named publicly.
At the time of her disappearance, Janet was 5 feet 7 inches tall and 180 pounds. She has black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Some reports state that she was classified as being a disabled person due to her mental impediments. Janet reportedly also had memory issues and trouble focusing. She wore prescription glasses and has a scar near her left eye and one on her throat.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Belleville Police Department at (618) 234-1218 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Janet Tillman in order to reignite the investigation into her disappearance. She is our sister and her life matters.
