      Missing Tempe woman found dead at crash site

      Jul. 1, 2007 05:26 PM
      A 44-year-old Tempe woman missing for nearly two weeks has been found dead at the scene of a crash along Interstate 17, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

      Cheryl Jones was found mid-day Sunday near the site of a single-vehicle crash, near Black Canyon City, DPS reported.

      An off-road driver found the vehicle at the bottom of a canyon and contacted DPS about 11:40 a.m. It had apparently crashed several days ago, DPS reported.

      Officials reported Jones had been missing since June 18 and Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office opened a missing persons investigation June 29.

      The cause of the crash is under investigation.

      I never look for good news in any of these cases like this one.

      Last night on MSNBC I watched a cold case story about a beautiful missing college girl.. who just vanished after a party. 2 detectives decided to take the case on.. Took 4 and a half years, but they solved it. First thing the 2 detectives said is. Everyone who went to the party had been interviewed, but they found 3 males who were interviewed, and their alibis were false. The detectives said, noone needs a false alibi when they are innocent. That’s the 3 guys they focused on.

      After awhile they finally got 2 of the guys to crack. Turns out one of the guys took her to his house, the other 2 guys were pretending to be asleep on his bedroom floor when they heard him rape her and then she was dressing to leave and he knew she would tell so he stabbed her and beat her with a wrench. They took her out in the desert and got rid of her. The 2 guys told the same story while apart about what happened and they cut a deal . The guy who did it , was found guilty and got death.

      I told my son today I just didn’t understand what makes guys ever feel like it’s ok to do this to a woman and then go on with life as if it were nothing.

      My prayers are with these families, but based on statistics and previous cases, I don’t look for good news.

      About Kelly … I wonder what the circumstances were under which she became separated from her friends at the bar. Did she go out walking on her own? Was anyone stalking her, or taking particular notice of her at the bar? Did she seem to be intoxicated or drugged?

      I don’t suppose that many people who go out to bars with friends ask that everyone keep an eye on each other. When I was in college, we almost never heard of such a thing. (True, Vermont wasn’t then and isn’t now particularly known as a crime center, though it’s not as idyllic as people like to think.)

      That was then; this is now. Keep in mind … it could be you. Or your child. Let’s hope we get answers, and if possible let her still be alive.

      Maggie, I think the answer to your question (“I just didn’t understand what makes guys ever feel like it’s ok to do this to a woman and then go on with life as if it were nothing”) is that there are a lot of amoral scum in the world. We know that alcohol lets down inhibitions … that, of course, is not intended to ameliorate any crime … but the sense of basic decency and concern for other people seems to be vanishing. To me, anyway.

      And if we have to adjust to living in a world where one person sees another as nothing but potential prey … well, if that’s the way it is, let’s at least be prepared.

      As a previous student at Madison, I think the family needs to get more proactive and vocal! They need to state exactly where she was last seen. That may trigger someone to recall something important for the police to find her. Go to that bar with posters on the day of the week she vanished. Show the photo and ask everyone if they remember her. Stand out front with sighns that list an 800 number or/and email address where someone can contact you with information. Ask the school to send out an email and photo about the night she went missing, and the exact spot she was last known to be. I would also think that it would be important to ask her friends why they separated from her. I would never leave a girlfriend out alone. Was she with someone? meeting someone? drunk? Anyways, you need to quit being so secretive, and get on the news with the last known location NOW! Most college kids have favorite bars that they frequent on a regular basis. So, speak before the trail gets cold. Also, ask the bouncer and bartender.

      After some digging on the web, I see that she was last seen at State Street Brats on Friday night/Sat am,…and that she called her sister on Sat am. That is an extremely important call. Can the police track the cell phone pings, and find her? THe family needs to state where she was last seen everytime they go on tv. They were on Greta tonight, and never said where she was last seen, what she was wearing and why she got split up from her friends. This information would help you find her,…so please say it in every info. Go to the bar every Friday night with posters, and check out the scene. Chances are the same people out the night she disappeared will be there. Hold signs with her photo, name , 800 number and email address, so someone can contact you! I would go there every weekend, until she is found. The bar is often frequented by frat/sororiety types, but is a real mix. About that site, there is usually some nut singing/perfomring to the outdoor eating area. This draws crowds on occasion. There is also a money machine- did she take out a bunch of cash that someone wanted? There are often some scary individuals sitting across the street at times….. Also, check out the Orpheum employees. It is not the safest location, and ususally theatre folk are a bit different. Check out her new residence. Maybe someone has a crush on her. It is common to bar hop, but most kids have their favorite places- check those places out. Her friends will definatley know her hangouts. Of course, if she is new to the area she may not realize that there are safe side streets, and some that are not…… And the place changes after midnight, with a more drunk, dangerous crowd. Many State Street stores have videos, check into those!
