  • Details of Disappearance
    Glaze was last seen at the Brevard Music Center in Transylvania County, North Carolina on March 19, 1996. She has never been heard from again. A five-day search of the area produced no evidence as to her whereabouts. Authorities initially believed Glaze became disoriented and wandered away from the building, but an anonymous letter was received by law enforcement in 2000 that led to a resumed search. Nothing was located during the most recent attempt.
    Michael Owen, 63, of Brevard confessedto Glaze's murder. He has since been arrested and charged in the death of Edna Eloise Glaze. Owen, who is a self-employed painter, was charged with first-degree murder.
