  • Details of Disappearance
    Jamie was last known to have been at or near her residence in the vicinity of the 1800 block of Lowell Bethesda Road, in Gastonia. She called her mother at approximately 12:00am and indicated she was sick. She then called her friend at approximately 1:30am and indicated an individual was coming to pick her up and take her to the hospital. She didn't drive and lived in an apartment complex on Lowell-Bethesda Road outside Gastonia. She was a student at Gaston College and planned a career as a drug counselor.

    Her purse, keys and ID were located in her residence. Police found her apartment locked with everything in place and no signs of violence. Two days after Jamie's disappearance, her cell phone was found by a utilities worker on New Hope Road, approximately 3 miles from her home.

    Early on, police began to suspect Ricky Dale Simonds Sr., 49, in Fraley’s disappearance. He lived in the same apartment complex and had served prison time for killing a woman in the 1980s. And Fraley had been dating Simonds’ son, Ricky Jr., who wasn’t considered a suspect because he was in prison when Fraley disappeared. In June, 2008, Simonds Sr. was found dead in the trunk of his ex-girlfriend’s car. His ex-girlfriend had a restraining order against him when he died.
