Chin Suk Kim Beshears, known as Gina, disappeared a week after her hair salon was raided by police, as it was a front for a brothel. Beshears was a Homewood beautician, owning the Shear Xpose and lived in the basement of the business on Columbiana Road.
When she vanished, she left behind two children, a boyfriend, everything she ever owned, and rice cooking on the stove. While there were no obvious signs of a struggle, there was evidence that she didn't skip town. Her cars, ID, passport, credit cards, and jewelry were left behind. The house and surrounding woods were searched by cadaver dogs but nothing was found.
