The Springfield Police Department recently partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to conduct a case review involving the disappearance of Sherill (sp. Sherrill) Levitt, Suzanne Streeter and Stacy McCall. The women were reported missing June 7, 1992 and the case remains unsolved.
The process for the case review began in late 2010. The Department’s current Robbery/Homicide Unit was assigned to research the nearly 25,000 documents related to the case and review physical evidence collected from the Levitt home at 1717 E. Delmar.

Last week, Lt. David Millsap, Sgt. Allen Neal, Cpl. Kevin Shipley and Cpl. Neal McAmis presented the case in Alexandria, Virginia to a panel of 25 criminal investigative experts assembled by NCMEC. The panel included members of the NCMEC’s Forensic Evidence Section, current and former members of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, Naval Criminal Investigations Section (NCIS), former homicide detectives with the Washington, D.C. Police Department, Arlington, Virginia Police Department, St. Louis, Missouri Metro Major Case Squad, FBI Crime Laboratory experts and many other criminal justice professionals.

The three day presentation was conducted in an effort to receive feedback from the panel for future follow-up in the case.

“We still believe someone in this community has key information that will lead to this case being solved. This case has received a large amount of publicity, and we have received thousands of tips. In the beginning there was a lot of information released, and some miss-information that was generated in the public, that may have kept someone from calling or contacting us with valuable information.” said Lt. David Millsap.
Police ask that anyone with information regarding this case contact 864-1810 or 869-TIPS.
