56 #MissingMarissa

Sixteen year old Marissa Escareno has a good life, she is a pretty girl, in good health. She lives in a loving home and earns good grades. In mid-February of 2017, there was a shift, Marissa wasn’t acting like herself. By March 3, she was gone, disappearing in the middle of the night, leaving behind her cell phone, clothing, cosmetics and ID.

In the last 90 days her family has been on a whirlwind. Sporadic calls and online appearances by Marissa raise their hopes, only to have them dashed again when she goes silent. It is her family’s belief that Marissa, who turned 17 on Mother’s Day, is somewhere in the Detroit area. Perhaps mixed up with the wrong crowd, or worse.

In this episode I speak with Marissa’s sister, Julia who tells Marissa’s story and shares her family’s experiences in trying to bring their girl home.

WXYZ Detroit did a web story about Marissa’s case.

54 Missing in Michigan – Chelsea Bruck

October 25, 2014. 22 year old Chelsea Bruck attends a huge outdoor halloween party/concert in a wooded area outside of Monroe, Michigan. Dressed as Poison Ivy in a long plum colored wig, and leaf trimmed green leotard the tall blonde spends the evening at the party with friends. After getting separated from her friends she is trying to find a ride home after 2:00 a.m.

Chelsea in street clothes and in costume the night she was murdered.

The person she accepts a ride from is someone from a nightmare. Chelsea is gone, vanished.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s department works the case hard, calling in assistance from dozens of agencies. In spring 2015 pieces of Chelsea’s costume are discovered in Flat Rock Michigan, but no sign of the missing woman. Weeks later her badly decomposed remains are located. In 2016, almost two years after she vanished an arrest is made. 27 year old Daniel Clay, a friend of one of her coworkers, is arrested after his DNA is found on Chelsea’s bloody costume.

Daniel denies murdering Chelsea, despite clear evidence that she received a brutal beating. In May 2017, a jury finds him guilty of murder and concealing her body. He will be sentenced on July 13, 2017

The many arrests of Daniel Clay.
