Missing since September 30, 1995 from Albuquerque, New Mexico
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Jill was reported missing by her parents on September 30, 1995. According to an investigation, Jill was last seen at the Frontier Restaurant in Albuquerque, NM during the late hours of September 30, 1995 or early morning hours of October 1, 1995.

Jill had been to the Ranch Bar with some friends and was last seen with Glenda "Jesse" Ray when they left to go to the Frontier Restaurant.

According to witnesses and Glenda Ray, Jill and Glenda were involved in a domestic argument. Glenda advised investigators she last saw Jill at the Frontier Restaurant when Glenda left with her father, David Parker Ray, driving to Elephant Butte Reservoir in southern New Mexico. Jill has never been seen since that time.

In 1999 David Parker Ray and Glenda Ray were arrested in Elephant Butte, NM for the kidnapping and torture of three women. David was eventually convicted for these crimes and Glenda pleaded guilty to the kidnapping of one of these women.

An extensive investigation conducted by the FBI, NM State Police and the Albuquerque Police Department lead investigators to believe David was involved in the kidnapping, torture and murder of up to 40 women. To this date no remains have ever been located of any of the suspected victims, including Jill Troia.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Jill Troia, or any other victim in this case, is urged to contact law enforcement.
Jill was adopted as an infant by US parents.
