Marisol Gonzalez was a top student at Mingus Union High School, had lots of friends and a close-knit family that loved her. In the summer before her junior year, she began dating one of her neighbors and classmates, Cecilio Criuz. Marisol hadn’t gone out with many boys, but she was taken in by Cecilio’s seemingly heartfelt affection and eventually fell for him - he was her first love. However, she quickly came to realize that she was far from the only one that he loved, and they broke up. Soon after, she found out she was pregnant. With the love and support of her family and friends, she decided she was going to have the baby. Many months later, on March 25, 1997 around 10pm, Marisol - now full term in her pregnancy – told her sister she was waiting for a call from Cecilio, and went outside with the cordless phone. That was the last time she was seen alive. Around 6am the following morning, her body was found in an alleyway a block away from her house. She had been shot one time in the face. To this day, Marisol’s family, friends and the entire Cottonwood Community are shocked and devastated by her murder and that of her unborn child Andrew -- and they desperately want justice.

Erika Case was a smart, precocious, 19-year-old who had graduated high school and was working part-time at the local mall in West Terre Haute, IN. It was a Saturday night, September 5, 1998, and she and her big sister Mary Case were house sitting for a family friend. After Mary left for her night nursing shift at the local hospital, Erika’s good friend Isaiah Dooley came by the house with his friend Clint Mackey For the next few hours they all swam in the pool, drank alcohol and ate pizza. Early the next morning Mary finished up her nursing shift and drove back to the house. When she walked inside she found Erika lying on the living room floor, covered in blood, dead; she had been stabbed at least 33 times. When the Vigo County Sherriff’s officers first questioned Isaiah and Clint, they both made conflicting statements as to who saw her last, but both of the boys asserted that when they left the house Erika was alive and well. Erika’s murder has had a huge impact on the small, peaceful, suburban community of West Terre Haute and while there have been lots of rumors around town, no one has ever been able to determine what actually happened that evening or who is responsible for Erika’s murder.

Tracy had recently gotten out of a volatile marriage with Garland Allen, but after their divorce the two remained in close contact. One early evening, in May of 2001, Tracy went out, while her neighbor baby-sat for their two young daughters. Later that night Garland arrived at the neighbor’s front door - he told her that Tracy was back at his house, and she had asked him to pick up their daughters. Garland then drove off with the girls, and dropped them off at his mother’s house. He told his mom that Tracy had run away with another man and had left him with the young girls. A few days later Garland surrendered custody of his kids to his mom, and then left town. It has been over 12 years since Tracy’s disappearance and no one has ever seen or heard from her again.
