Juanita Joan Nielsen
Missing since July 4, 1975 from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Juanita Nielsen was a wealthy heiress and local newspaper editor, who had been at the forefront of a crusade against redevelopment of Victoria Street in Sydney's redlight Kings Cross district. July 4, 1975 she went to an appointment at a Kings Cross nightclub - and then disappeared.
A long Coronial Inquiry probed her disappearance. But the problem faced by investigators was that so many people had so many reasons for wanting her dead. Her boyfriend John Glebe said in evidence to the Inquiry how Ms Nielsen had told him of telephone threats. He said she'd carried cassette tapes in her handbag which she had said could "blow the top off" an issue she was working on. John Glebe was later threatened by an anonymous caller.
