Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
St. John was last seen in Fairbanks, Alaska on February 27, 1995.
St. John worked at a McDonald's in Fairbanks , and authorities have not found anyone who saw her after February 27.
Her husband, Roger St. John, committed suicide in May, 1995 in Little Rock, AR. He left behind a 14-page suicide note, in which St. John said he killed his in-laws, Clinton S. Watson and Lyla Mae Watson, shortly after they closed their nightspot, Monk and Jo's, near the Forrest-Stone County line.
St. John had been the subject of a nationwide manhunt that stretched to Fairbanks , Alaska, where he and his wife once lived. Police feared that St. John had not only killed his in-laws, but also his wife, Cynthia, who is still missing. St. John said in his note that he killed his in-laws because they mistreated his wife and caused her to kill herself. He didn't pinpoint where the body would be.
The Watsons had contacted Alaska state troopers on February 27 to list their eldest daughter missing.
