Infamous missing persons case "The Springfield Three" is 30 years old today

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Tuesday marks 30 years since 3 Springfield women vanished.

You don’t have to say who ‘The Springfield Three’ is to know their names. Fliers and billboards were plastered all over the Ozarks for years.

Now three decades later, police tell us they are still actively investigating the case.

“It’s 1992, Springfield, Missouri, in the basically the heart of the bible belt,” said former Springfield Police Detective and current Bolivar Police Chief Mark Webb.

On June 7, 1992, 18-year-old Stacy McCall, her friend, 19-year-old Suzi Streeter, and Streeter’s mother, 47-year-old Sherill Levitt, were reported missing.

“It was a totally different world back then. It wasn’t all the phone tracking and the towers and all stuff we do now,” said Webb.

He was one of the first detectives assigned to the case.

He says it seemed as though the two teens made it to Levitt’s house on Delmar Street in the early morning hours of June 7 after attending a party to celebrate their high school graduation.

“I saw her graduate Saturday night, and now she’s gone,” said Janice McCall in 1992.

Inside the house, nothing seemed to be out of place. No personal items were missing. The women’s keys and purses were accounted for. Their cars were parked in the driveway.

The three women seemed to have vanished without a trace.

Out of all the many missing persons cases, this is my #1. It is so bizarre, creepy and downright strange. Three adult women abducted at the same time is almost unheard of, and then there's the fact there was zero evidence left behind. It's mind-boggling. WTF happened, and how did it happen?

It doesn't seem so far fetched to me. Someone points a gun at my mom, I'm going wherever they tell me to.

R4 The problem regarding evidence is that several people went into the house before calling police, a vulgar phone message was erased off the answering machine by mistake, and the girl's friend and her boyfriend swept up a broken porch light globe and threw out the broken pieces onto the lawn of dentist's office next door.

I had never even heard of the Springfield Three until I read this thread. I was just a kid when it happened. In one of the videos I watched on the case, the expert seems to think Robert Cox alone is responsible.
