Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On the night of March 30, 1983, Aline Self left her baby with her mom and went to meet some friends at the Wagon Wheel Bar & Restaurant. The friends in the bar said that Aline told them she was leaving to go get her daughter since she had to be at work early the next day.
She never arrived at her mom's house. Her car was still in the parking lot the next day.
I was later learned she left with two white males.
The car was still locked and the keys were not found. Her father and brother broke into it and popped the locked steering column so they could pull it home. Her family says she did have a wild streak but she was very responsible where the baby was concerned and she would never have left willingly.
Aline was declared dead 5 years after her disappearance.
On July 27, 2006 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Robert Charles Browne, a Red River Parish native, was indicted for the 1987 death of 15-year-old Rocio Sperry. Browne claims responsibility for Aline Self's death as well as two other females in Red River Parish and that of 47 other people across the United States. Browne was the maintenance man at the apartment where Self lived. He says he entered her unlocked apartment, found her asleep, placed a rag with chloroform over her face and went to get a rope to bind her. When he returned, she was dead. He dumped her body in a river.
Two self-professed serial killers, Henry Lee Lucas and Robert Browne, has taken credit at different times for Self’s death. Neither one of the men’s stories could be corroborated.
