Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Anna Thelma Garrett, known as Thelma to her friends, disappeared from her residence in January 2001. Garrett's mail carrier first became concerned when mail accumulated in her mailbox. When a friend reported Garrett missing February 22, police found the locks on her gate and door unlocked, and her car missing from the garage. Her vehicle was recovered on 02242001 at 9 North Phoenix Avenue, with what appeared to be blood in the trunk. The license plate was not on the vehicle at that time. No money or belongings were reported missing from Garrett's house. Thelma was afraid of the neighborhood where she lived as she had been robbed before, and was talking about trying to find a place to live in Skiatook.
Investigation indicates Thelma met with foul play and a suspect was identified, however Thelma's body has never been located. David Campbell, 36, had been questioned about the disappearance of Thelma. He apparently committed suicide, but left behind a hand-drawn map. The map turned up no leads in the search for Anna Thelma Garrett.
Authorities had not named Campbell as a suspect in Garrett's disappearance, though they had questioned him.
Detectives believe that Thelma was murdered and dumped somewhere in rural Creek County.
