  • Details of Disappearance
    Ms. McKeown left home on Saturday August 24, 2002 at about 9:30 am to go to her daughter's house. She often frequented yard sales and might have stopped at some on the way to her daughter's house. She never arrived.

    On September 3, 2002 McKeown's vehicle was found abandoned, covered with a tarp and branches, hidden behind trees in a vacant lot in the 3300 block of Highland Avenue. The vehicle's Missouri license plates "MCQ-N" are missing and have not been recovered.

    Based on the amount of blood later found in McKeown's abandoned car, police think someone killed her. Investigators still do not know who did it or where her remains are.
