  • Details of Disappearance
    Eason was last seen sometime during September 1997 in Poughkeepsie, New York in the area of Main Street.

    Eason was reported missing to authorities on October 9, 1997.
    In September 1998 serial killer Kendall Francois confessed to killing eight women and their bodies were found in his home, hidden in crawl spaces. Eason, disappeared during the same two-year period when Francois was on his killing spree. Eason, like many of Francois' victims, was a known prostitute and drug user who frequented the same Main Street area where Francois picked up many of his victims from 1996 to 1998.
    Authorities believe Francois may be responsible for Eason disappearance, but her body was not found with the others. But Francois has denied any knowledge of Eason's whereabouts. He is serving his term in Attica State Prison.
