  • Details of Disappearance
    Marjorie was last known to be attending a party at a friend's house in Chaparral, New Mexico. She may have left with an unknown male.

    The evening of Feb. 13 was supposed to include another party at a friend's home in Chaparral. The Knox family also had plans for a family party later on Feb. 14. Knox told friends she had to get home to help with her family's Valentine's Day festivities.

    After friends left Knox, the girl ended up at the home of another friend who lived on Chaparral Drive. When Marjorie was leaving, her friend walked Marjorie to the corner. It was around 2 a.m. on Feb. 14, and it would have taken Knox from 15 to 20 minutes to walk to her home on Byrum. But to get there, she had to walk down an unpaved road without any lighting. She never made it home.

    Chaparralis a small community in Southern New Mexico that straddles two counties and has no public transportation. Marjorie has not been seen or heard from since.

    A Death row inmate was a prime suspect in the disappearances of Knox and two other teenagers in El Paso who are still missing. Witnesses told police that earlier on Feb. 13, Knox was at a Valentine's Day party in Veterans Park in Northeast El Paso. The suspect, who lived near the park, was seen talking to Knox from his truck. Foul play is suspected.
