Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Iva Edwards was last seen on October 26, 1974, leaving the Ranch House restaurant on West 49th Street in Hialeah, where she worked as a waitress. She was with her estranged husband, James "T-Bone" Edwards, at the time.
James has a history of abusive behaviour. He is the primary suspect in Iva's disappearance, but was never charged for lack of evidence. He failed a polygraph test, and was allegedly boasting to friends and family about murdering Iva. He has since died.
Iva was living in Hialeah with her daughters at the time. She had fled her husband after discovering he had molested their children.
