2011 — Holly Bobo disappears from her house in Dardeen, Tennessee. Her brother last saw her alive, and he claimed that he saw her walk into the woods with a man wearing camouflage. Part of her remains were found in 2014. Though six men have been arrested for involvement in her murder, only three have been prosecuted. One man died by suicide and two other men had their charges dropped.

1946 — Betty Jo Booker, 15, and Paul Martin, 17, are last seen after Betty’s band practice. They were both killed as part of the Texarkana Moonlight Murders.
