Crime can happen anywhere. No matter how secure a city or idyllic a small town is, someone somewhere will get a bad idea and act it out regardless of the safety of other people.
Minor crimes are rampant, usually from the youth trying to test the limits of their freedom and the patience of authority, but these are forgivable. It’s the dire crimes, the murders, and the attacks, which plague every area of the world without stopping.
They can happen to anyone and for any reason. And the worst come and go without even being known, where the cause is never discovered, and the victim never found.
Christina Whittaker was a hot topic name back in November of 2009. The 21-year-old mother went out for a fun night of drinking and never returned home.
Her disappearance had no traces and led to a cold case investigation, with no clues in the subsequent decade.
Whatever happened to her seemingly generated no evidence, no trial, and her disappearance has been a sore in the small town she moved to. No one could have imagined such a little hamlet could produce a national scale of horror like this.
10 /10 The Lacking Lady
Christina was a mother of a six-month-old child who moved to the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, with her boyfriend, Travis Blackwell, and her young daughter Alexandria.
Her mother, Cindy Young, was still very much involved in her daughter’s life. Christina was a bright and passionate woman with some personal issues under her surface.
9 /10 Last Drink
Christina disappeared on Friday, November 13th, 2009. The evening preceding her disappearance was not at all unusual.
It was the first time she’d been out on her own to drink with friends since she had her daughter and wanted to live it up.
She went bar hopping from one venue to another in the small town until she became drunk to act in a disorderly fashion.
She was asked to leave and made a call to her boyfriend. After that, just before midnight, she vanished. She was reported on Sunday, more than 24 hours after she was last seen.
