Detroit, Michigan- In Detroit as of late, there has been several reported cases of missing people. Mostly reported so far involve cases of young women that frequent adult entertainment establishments, either the women actual work or just socialized in the clubs.
With all the media focus shifted on the missing two year-old, Bianca Jones also from Detroit…very little attention continued to remain on other missing people.
Understandably every case is as important as the rest, but lets not lose the focus that people are missing. From sources the women reported missing was last seen in or around strip clubs. Just last week two women were found dead inside of the truck of a car, after someone set their bodies on fire.
Including the previous report of missing Baby Jones, currently about 3,000 people are reported missing in Michigan. Of those, 143 — includes the disappearances of three young Morenci boys and Westland teen Carlee Morse, who vanished from outside her family’s apartment.
Detroit begun using a system, called “NamUs.” Since using the NamUs system, Michigan has proven the system to be efficient in solving one of the first ever cases.
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System — or NamUs, begun in July of 2011 and the first ever solved case involved a man, Donald Norman who didn’t know if his missing brother was dead or alive. Norman visited the Monroe County cemetery where his identical twin has been buried for nearly two decades. Norman’s brother, Ronald, vanished from a Detroit nursing home in December 1991. The following spring, his unidentified body was found floating in Lake Erie in Monroe Township. He was listed as a John Doe and buried.
Michigan State Police investigators were able to connect Norman and the John Doe and bring his family closure through a new database that can cross-reference missing-persons files with unidentified remains.
While not all Michigan missing people were ever recovered, we still remain hopeful. Until someone take a stand to help find these people we are all lost as a community.
