Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Kathryn Gregory disappeared November 4, 1981, from Spokane.
At 24, Gregory was married and lived in a small brick house on Tekoa Street, just south of Manito Park. She always showed up for her shift as a nurse at Spokane’s Deaconess Medical Center at least a half hour early, and always parked her chocolate brown 1978 Toyota Corolla in the same parking lot across from the hospital. So when she didn’t show up for her 1 pm shift on the afternoon of November 4, her co-workers started worrying. Her car wasn’t in the lot, and she hadn’t called to say she was sick.
They phoned her husband Brian — a DJ on Spokane’s then-popular Rock 106 radio station — and asked if he’d seen her. He said they’d gone shopping that morning downtown, stopping to buy cat food at a Safeway store at Third and Maple. He’d dropped her off at 11 am at their South Hill home so she could get ready for work. He left to meet his colleagues downtown for a business meeting.
On November 6, two days after her disappearance, her car was located, parked on the street at Fifth and Monroe — just one block from the front doors of Deaconess, but in a place her co-workers said Gregory would never park. Gregory’s shift on November 4 was slated to last 10 hours, ending long after dark. And she wasn’t the type to risk walking in a strange area at night.
