They have been nicknamed ‘The Springfield Three’, they went missing sometime back between the night of June 6 and the morning of June 7, 1992. The case is both mysterious and a rather perplexing one. The anniversary of their disappearance this year, will be 26 years since these ladies simply vanished without a trace.
Two friends named Suzanne “Suzie” Streeter and Stacy McCall, along with Streeter’s mother, Sherrill Levitt, all went missing from Levitt’s home in Springfield, Missouri. The disappearance occured after both Suzanne and Stacy returned from a graduation night of partying from Kickapoo High School.
The only foul play noticed, was a broken porch light. There were no signs of any kind of struggle that took place. Their personal belongings, including their cars, purses, clothing, keys, cigarettes and the family dog were all left behind. Everything in the house was seemingly untouched.
A message was also left on an answering machine at the home. Police during the time, believed it to be a possible clue to their whereabouts. However, inadvertently the message was erased. Apparently, the police department never checked across the street, where the offices were which overlooked the residence.
Later, in 1997, a convicted kidnapper and robber by the name of Robert Craig Cox, claimed he knew the women were murdered and where their bodies would be found. It turned out to be untrue. There were a number of inconsistencies in his claims, making it difficult to determine whether or not he was providing false statements.
Suzanne Elizabeth “Suzie” Streeter was 19 years old, she was 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed around 102 pounds. Her blonde hair was shoulder length and she has brown eyes. Her distinguishable marks included a scar on her upper right forearm, a small mole on the left corner of her mouth and pierced ears (her left ear pierced twice).
Stacy Kathleen McCall was 18 years old, she weighed around 120 pounds and is 5 feet 3 inches tall. She has long dark blonde hair and fair colored eyes.
Sherrill Elizabeth Levitt was age 47 when she went missing. She was 5 feet tall and weighed around 110 pounds. Sherrill worked as a cosmetologist at a local salon and is a single mother.
