Two single mothers in southern Indiana have disappeared in the past six weeks. So far, police have not made a connection between the two cases, but they sound really similar. On August 15th, 27 year old Kristy Kelley, a mother of two left a bar around 1:30 a.m.. She got into her car and headed home to her parent's house two miles away. She never made it home and her family reported her disappearance the next morning.
In the first part of July, in a town just under 20 miles away, Joelle Lockwood, a 30 year old mother of two left a friend's house to walk home and was never seen again. Both women look similar. Both are single mothers of two kids. They are roughly the same age and both disappeared under similar circumstances in the same general area. Kristy leaving in her car is a little harder to imagine. She did leave her phone at the bar when she left that night, but how did the person get her to leave the car or was the person already in her car? Joelle was walking so that is much easier to do. I do know that if a third incident happens in that part of Indiana to a similar single mother that no one will want to leave their house alone. What will also be interesting to see if it does happen again, how quickly a third disappearance happens. There was a 37 day gap between the first two. Will that timeline speed up?
