Kelly Dae Wilson
Missing since January 5, 1992 from Gilmer, Upshur County, Texas.
Classification: Lost, Injured, Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Wilson was last seen at about 8:30 p.m. leaving her work place to go to the bank. Her car was found at her work place with a flat tire. Her belongings were found inside the car but the keys were missing.
Theories of a satanic cult spread rapidly and culminated in 48 indictments against 10 people in 1994 for child abuse. 8 people were also charged with aggravated sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping and capital murder in connection with Wilson's disappearance.
Wilson was supposedly kidnapped, tortured and murdered during a cult ritual.
In 1995 the state dismissed all of the murder and kidnapping charges, and 45 of 48 child abuse indictments. The state found no physical evidence to back up the charges. Tips and rumors since have placed suspicion on 2 other people, but no evidence has connected them to Wilson's' disappearance.
