Springfield, Mo It was a quarter century ago three women went missing from a home in Springfield. On Tuesday, the community gathered to remember the women and hope for closure once and for all.
The event was called a celebration of life and was a chance to remember a different time before the families' hearts were so tragically shattered, and the city lost part of its innocence. Those at the gathering took part in a candlelight vigil and a release of Japanese lanterns in honor of the three.
Suzanne and Stacy graduated from Kickapoo High School the night before the three disappeared without a trace. Sherrill is Suzanne's mother. Officers found all their personal belongings at home and no obvious sign of foul play. Springfield Police have investigated thousands of leads over the years, but no breaks.
