SPOTTSVILLE, Ky. - Today is Heather Teague Day of Prayer in Kentucky. A proclamation by Gov. Ernie Fletcher marks the 10th anniversary of Teague's disappearance Aug. 26, 1995, from Newburgh Beach, a sandy stretch of Ohio River bank on the Kentucky shore opposite Newburgh.

A chance sighting by a Newburgh resident scanning the beach with a telescope alerted Kentucky authorities to her abduction by a man armed with a handgun.

She was never seen again.

Still, for the past 10 years her mother, Sarah Teague, who now lives at Madisonville, Ky., has kept her memory alive and the crime in the public's consciousness with lavender ribbons, billboards with her daughter's picture and the persistent question: Where's Heather?

"It's just something a mother has to do," she said. "I just couldn't do anything different."

She's hopeful, too, that continued investigation by Kentucky State Police will bring some answers at last.

She's hopeful testing now being done will determine whether her daughter was in a vehicle belonging to the only person ever named as a suspect in the abduction. That suspect, Henderson County resident Marty Dill, committed suicide five days after Teague's disappearance, as officers surrounded his rural mobile home.

Early efforts to obtain a DNA match of tiny specks of blood found on a window of Dill's red-and-white Ford Bronco with Teague proved inconclusive. But her mother contends that other samples of blood and fiber found in the vehicle by an FBI team remained untested in state police custody until only a few months ago.

Recently, too, state police identified Christopher Below, who has ties to Western Kentucky and who is in prison in Ohio for a murder committed there, as a "person of interest," in the Teague disappearance.

Henderson Commonwealth's Attorney Bill Markwell and State Police detective Tim Rascoe traveled to Ohio to interview Below last fall, but Markwell said they were not able to develop any new information from the visit.

"We did not get any gem like we were all hoping would come forth," Markwell said.

Rascoe declined to discuss the Teague case, saying only that state police continue to "review leads as they come in." "It's very frustrating to us, and I know it is for Sarah (Teague)," Markwell said. "We just need a break, and I think that break is going to come in the form of some witness that has information or is privy to information. Unfortunately, time is working against us and it becomes increasing more difficult to follow up on the leads, although they do come in from various sources."

Newburgh Beach is a sandy strip of land along the Kentucky shore of the Ohio River opposite Newburgh and just below the dam there. Despite the proximity of the Indiana town, it's a remote location in Kentucky, buffered from the nearest Henderson County residents by large river bottom fields of corn and soybeans.

Easy access by boat or by roads that cut though the fields and follow the river, coupled with the lack of nearby residents, make it a popular spot for partying and camping.

Teague, a 23-year-old Dixon, Ky., resident, was sunbathing there that Saturday afternoon. She was alone on the upstream end of the beach, separated by several yards and a screen of scrubby trees and tall weeds from others who were riding four-wheelers and frolicking further downstream. She had placed her lounge chair near the edge of the river and had brought along a notebook. Her car was parked behind her on the side of the road.

It was a little after 1 p.m. when Newburgh resident Tim Walthall, focusing a telescope from his home across the river toward the beach, saw something that has set in motion the 10-year search for Teague.

Walthall observed a man crouched in the bushes along the beach sneak up on Teague, wrap her long hair around his hand and drag her out of her chair back toward the wooded area along the river.

At first, Walthall said, he thought it was just someone playing a joke on her, but then he saw the gun in the man's hand.

That's when he began trying to contact authorities to tell them what he had seen.

Walthall is presumably the last person other than her assailant to see Teague. She was gone without a further trace.

Yesterday our family was still in Florida as this unfortunate anniversary rolled around for Heather's disappearance. I talked with Sarah yesterday and she told me that they had no vigil planned but the immeidate family was going to gather to remember Heather last night.

Our family remembered Heather yesterday @ 1 pm, when Heather vanished exactly 10 years ago with a moment of prayer. Later at sundown, we all went down on the beach and I wrote a message in the sand to Heather and a few others. We photographed the beautiful sunset so you all can see the symbolic part of it. There's a major hurricane headed towards the FL panhandle (where we were). This is what you call the calm before the storm. The same I feel is about to happen with Heathers case.

xx Two Women Missing From One Family
« Reply #48 on: Oct 11th, 2005, 6:57pm »

11Alive has done a special show tonight that includes Heather and SueAnn. You can see the live feed from the link below.




The search for a missing mother from Woodstock has family members feeling a sense of deja vu.
26-year-old Sueann Ray was last seen six weeks ago on the 10th anniversary of her cousin’s disappearance in Kentucky.

On August 26, 1995, Heather Teague was abducted from a beach in Spottsville, Ky., in broad daylight.

She was 23 years old at the time and has not been seen since.

Her case remains unsolved .

"You never know the pain a mother and father go through when they lose a child or a child is missing until it happens to you," said Danny Jenkins.

Jenkins has spent years helping his sister deal with the disappearance of her daughter, Heather.
Now he’s in the same situation.

His daughter, Sueann, has been missing since August 26. She disappeared ten years to the day after her cousin’s abduction here.

“It's a feeling you can't describe,” Jenkins said. “It's terrible, and I don't know how my sister made it. I don't know how she's alive. I don't know how she's done it for 10 years, because I can't. I can't go through it for 10 years, I'll tell you that."

Sueann, who was a teenager when her cousin disappeared, recently sent an e-mail to her aunt.

“I am sure that I can help,” Sueann wrote. “I will do anything I can. I picture this happening in my head, and it doesn’t make sense…Something is definitely wrong…We will bring her home, one way or another.”

Three days after sending that e-mail, Sueann also disappeared.

Police suspect foul play, but they haven’t identified any suspects.

"I just have to keep hope that she is alive,” said Sandy Chasm, Sueann’s sister. "I want her home so I can talk to her."

Relatives are hoping at least one family mystery will be solved soon.

Anyone with information about Sueann Ray’s disappearance, is asked to call the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-597-TIPS.

Her family is offering a $105,000 reward for information that leads to finding her

xx Heather Teague's Cousin Also Missing
« Reply #49 on: Oct 12th, 2005, 1:22pm »

http://www.14wfie.com/Global/story.asp?S=3968474&nav=3w6o

In August, we told you about the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of Heather Teague from Newburgh Beach. And now, one of Heather's relatives has also vanished.

Police suspect foul play in the disappearance of 26-year-old Sue Ann Ray of Woodstock, Georgia. Ray is the first cousin of Heather Teague, and strangely enough, she too was missing on the tenth anniversary of Heather's disappearance. We get that story from Jennifer Leslie out of the NBC affiliate in Atlanta.

For six weeks now, Sandy Chasm has worked nonstop to try to get the word out about her sister's disappearance, hoping anyone with information will come forward. "I just keep hoping that she's still alive, keeps me strong."

Sue Ann Ray disappeared on August 26th, a Friday, after she went to her estranged husband's home in Jasper. Quinton Ray told police she was there to get an oil change in the shop he runs out back and she left that evening. No one has seen or heard from her since.

Sgt. Dan King of the Woodstock Police Department says, "Based on the fact that it's out of character for her to be gone for such a long period of time, without talking to her family and friends, we think there's more to it than just a missing person."

Three days after Ray disappeared, police found her mini van abandoned in the Walmart parking lot in Canton. Someone backed it into the spot and left it there.

Sandy tells us, "It was backed in perfectly straight. No way she backed in - no way."

Woodstock police say the mini van is a maroon 1998 Ford Windstar. Police have interviewed Ray's family members and friends, but they have not identified any suspects.

Sandy says, "It's been horrible, a nightmare, like a bad dream and you don't wake up." Perhaps the hardest part, she says, is explaining Ray's disappearance to her six-year-old daughter. "She misses her mom, wants mom back and doesn't understand why we can't find her."

Family members are hoping a new $100,000 reward will be the key to solving this case.

Sarah Teague told us there has been some movement in the investigation to find out what happened to her daughter. And she hopes to be able to share that information in the near future.

There have been no arrests in either case.

xx Missing Cousin Vowed To Find Heather Teague
« Reply #50 on: Oct 13th, 2005, 5:47pm »

The strange case of two missing cousins is haunting families in both Kentucky and Georgia. On Wednesday, we told you about 26-year-old Sue Ann Ray of Woodstock, Georgia who vanished this past August on the tenth anniversary of Heather Teagues' disappearance from a Kentucky beach. Sue Ann Ray and Heather Teague are first cousins.

Now we hear about an email sent to Heather's mother just before her niece disappeared. Jennifer Leslie with our NBC affiliate in Atlanta, has the story.

The family of Sue Ann Ray of Woodstock has lived with the unknown for years. On August 26, 1995, Ray's first cousin, Heather Teague, was abducted from a beach in Kentucky in broad daylight. She was 23 at the time and has not been seen since. Her case remains unsolved.

Danny Jenkins has spent years helping his sister deal with her daughter's disappearance and now he's in the same situation. "You never know the pain a mother and father go through when they lose a child, or a child is missing, until it happens to you."

Jenkins' daughter, Sue Ann, has been missing for six weeks, since August 26th. She disappeared ten years to the day after her cousin's abduction. Jenkins says, "It's a feeling you can't describe. It's terrible, and I don't know how my sister made it. I don't know how she's alive. I don't know how she's done it for ten years, 'cause I can't. I can't go through it for ten years, I'll tell you that."

Sue Ann, who was a teenager when her cousin disappeared, recently sent an e-mail to her aunt. In it, she wrote:

"I am sure that I can help. I will do anything I can. I picture this happening in my head and it doesn't make sense. Something is definitely wrong. We will bring her home! One way or another."

Three days later, Sue Ann also disappeared. Police suspect foul play, but they have not identified any suspects. Sue Ann's sister, Sandy Chasm says, "I just have to keep hope that she is alive. I want her home, so I can talk to her."

Relatives are hoping at least one family mystery will be solved soon. The family of Sue Ann Ray is offering a $105,000 reward for information that leads to finding her.

As for Heather, her mom Sarah says the FBI's re-involvement in the case has given her new hope that she'll find out what happened to her daughter ten years ago.

xx DNA Kits Given to Young Students
« Reply #51 on: Apr 26th, 2006, 09:04am »

A Madisonville mother is using what would've been her daughter's 34th birthday to help prevent other kids from going missing.

Heather Teague disappeared from Newburgh Beach in Henderson County nearly 11 years ago without a trace.

Her mother, Sarah, has directed her attention towards helping find missing children. She's handing out some 400 DNA kits to the students of Pride Elementary in Madisonville.

Sarah says taking DNA samples from these students might be just what it takes to identify children when they're found.

She replies, "I just hope another family does not ever have to go through what we have been through, if this can possibly help. We are doing it because it's here. The need is here. And it's to honor Heather on her 34th birthday."

Sarah Teague hopes to one day create a county wide children's DNA data base.

xx Police turn to Internet in cold cases
« Reply #54 on: Oct 19th, 2006, 12:08pm »

By Brett Barrouquere


For years, the names of Harold "Bo" Upton III, Ryan Keith Shangraw, Heather Teague and Louis Bennett Chitwood were relegated to yellowing files in a desk or filing cabinet.

But now, their cases are among the nearly 130 unsolved murders -- some more than 50 years old -- that Kentucky State Police have posted online, in the hope someone will come forward with information about their slayings.

The move is similar to what law enforcement agencies from Austin, Texas, to Anchorage, Alaska, have begun doing in recent years -- posting details and sometimes pictures from cold cases on the Internet, looking to current technology to open long-hidden secrets.

"People like to assist or be involved with mysteries," said Kentucky State Police Lt. Mark Merriman. "That's what these cases are, mysteries."

By posting online, police agencies can reach beyond local newspapers or television stations to witnesses, family or friends who have moved out of the area, said William Toohey, a spokesman for the Baltimore County Police Department in Maryland.

"If you're going to do law enforcement these days, you've got to use the Internet," Toohey said.

The descriptions of the crimes at www.kentuckystatepolice.org/cold_case.htm aren't vivid, most giving a date when the body was found, the name of the victim and a few details. The idea is to give people enough information to recognize the case, but hold back enough to sort out actual tips from those by people seeking attention, Merriman said.

The efforts have met with mixed results, with law enforcement agencies reporting they have gotten tips or inquiries in a few cases but have solved few of them.

"We haven't been real successful so far," said Sgt. John Neff of the Austin Police Department in Texas.

However, the online efforts did pay off for Kentucky State Police in a case involving a person known for 12 years only as "Madison Man."

Janet Juckem of Lodi, Wis., was searching online last year for any trace of her brother-in-law, Douglas Martin Prouty, who was last seen in 1993. Juckem ran across the sketch of "Madison Man" -- so named because he was found in Madison County, Ky. -- that Merriman had posted online.

Prouty's brother, Mark Prouty, also recognized the sketch, leading to a DNA test and a positive identification.

"In one sense, it does mean closure," Prouty said.

For the families and friends of others on the cold case list, the efforts are appreciated, but not enough. Some have put up their own Web pages soliciting information.

University of Kentucky student Jeff Reynolds runs www.memoriesofbo.com, looking for information about who killed Upton and Shangraw, who were found shot to death near Stanford, Ky., in February 2002. Reynolds, whose site has been online for about a year, got the idea from seeing a billboard soliciting information for an unrelated case.

Sarah Teague of Madisonville, Ky., keeps the Web site www.whereisheatherteague.com updated as she continues to search for answers about what happened to her daughter, Heather Teague, who was last seen on Newburgh Beach in Western Kentucky in August 1995.

Troopers have presumed that Teague was killed after a witness reported seeing a man drag Teague into nearby woods.

"I know in my heart, in every fiber of my being that Heather is coming home," Sarah Teague said. "And, I know that every question I have ever asked will be answered."

The detectives who handled the cases also want answers, and the Web postings are a way to keep the information in the public eye and possibly have someone come forward after years of living with guilt, Toohey said.

In a case like that of Chitwood, a Chattanooga, Tenn., man found beaten to death in Harrodsburg, Ky., in 1969, nearly everyone involved is dead, Merriman said. But there's still a desire to solve the mystery.

"I've got a 'Baby Jane Doe' case online that I'd love to know the answers to," Merriman said. "Somebody out there has been living with that information for years. That just drives me crazy."

xx $100K For Leads In Missing Person Case
« Reply #55 on: Nov 2nd, 2006, 11:25am »

UPDATE, THU, 6:30 AM: A 23-year-old Webster County woman has been missing for eleven years, but her family believes a $100,000 reward could help solve the case.

Heather Teague has been missing since August 26th, 1995, after going sunbathing on Newburgh Beach in Henderson County.

Her mother, Sarah Teague, says Heather's case is one of 20 chosen by Joe Mammana of Philadelphia and the Midwest Coalition of Missing Persons for the reward.

Mammana has donated millions of dollars to help solve crimes.

The reward is offered for information leading to the recovery of the missing person, and/or the arrest of the person responsible.

The reward is being offered for 20 days, beginning Sunday and running through November 24th.

In Heather Teague's investigation, people are instructed to direct information to Kentucky State Police Post 16 in Henderson.

Reporter: Shannon Samson
New Media Producer: Rachel Chambliss

A man who offered a reward in the Natalee Holloway missing person case is now doing the same for Heather Teague.

Eleven years ago, a witness told police he saw the 23-year-old western Kentucky woman dragged off a Henderson County beach at gunpoint.

No new leads have come in for quite some time, but this money may change that.

Sarah Teague, Heather's mom, says, "We are in a different place now."

Sarah Teague announces the CEO of an egg company in Philadelphia is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of her daughter, Heather, or the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for her disappearance.

"For some reason, Heather's story touched his heart. I imagine all it took was one look into that face, and there you go," explains Sarah.

The stepmother of a missing Indianapolis woman recently convinced Joe Mammana to offer $2 million in rewards for 20 missing people for a period of 20 days.

Sarah says, "We don't know who is going to talk, but I believe with all my heart that somebody will."

Kentucky state police assigned a new detective to her daughter's case. The FBI is now investigating so is a Madisonville attorney.

Attorney Chip Adams states, "It's extremely complex, especially with the suspect, the prime suspect, not being alive. We don't know if he did it. There's absolutely nothing conclusive. It's just circumstantial, and that's where we're trying to go - just further down that road."

That prime suspect, Marty Dill, committed suicide before being questioned by Kentucky state police. Investigators in other states say Dill may have only been an accomplice to suspected serial killer Chris Below.

Sarah hopes this reward is finally going to persuade someone to come forward and reveal what really happened on the beach that day.

"I know someday, every question we ever asked will be answered. I know that. I mean it's been 11 years, and I know that's a long time, but I will not give up hope," she concludes.

The reward is being offered November 5 through the 24. Anyone with tips should call the Kentucky state police.

Sarah is especially hoping to hear from two young women who told her they saw Heather being held against her will in a red chevette the day she disappeared.

xx Teague will receive new information
« Reply #56 on: Aug 12th, 2007, 10:21am »

By BETH SMITH
, Gleaner staff

The mother of a missing Webster County woman said she will soon be getting one of the answers she's been seeking for nearly 12 years.

Sarah Teague said that the Kentucky State Police has agreed to provide her with the time that an eyewitness made a 911 call saying that he'd seen her daughter, Heather Teague, being dragged off of Newburgh Beach. The state police have also agreed to provide the location or which dispatch center received the emergency call.

Teague, 23, was last seen on Aug. 26, 1995, being kidnapped from Newburgh Beach where she'd been sunbathing.

"We've tried to establish a timeline of events that occurred that day," said Chip Adams II of Madisonville, Sarah Teague's attorney. "Over the last 12 years, we've never been able to get this information and it's a crucial piece to the investigation."

Sarah Teague said initially, she and Adams had filed an open records request with the Kentucky State Police for the 911 tape of the eyewitnesses' phone call. The state police denied the request saying that they don't release information regarding an ongoing investigation in the event that it could hurt the case.

Teague and Adams then appealed to the Attorney General's Office, which upheld the state police's decision.

They then appealed the Attorney General's decision to the Henderson Circuit Court, but before a decision could be made in that arena, both parties agreed to a compromise.

"It's been 12 years to get this answer," Adams said, but added he's not sure where this information will lead or if it will generate a resolution to the case.

"This is the first mile of a marathon. We'll have to sit back and see where the leads go," he said.

Teague said that she's expecting to get the requested information from the state police sometime this week.

She said that for her, getting this information is significant for a few reasons.

"It's significant because we've never gotten a straight answer as to when the eyewitness called. It's so significant because it's an answer to one of my questions so that we can piece together what really happened," Teague said.

State Police Lt. David Crafton said the only information being released is the time the 911 call was placed and the location where it was received.

"Normally, we don't release anything that's part of an ongoing investigation," he said. "And every year, we work on this case. We work on it several times a year, following up the different leads that come in."

"Our agency specifically agreed to give the time and location to her (Teague)," Crafton said.

Lt. Scott Miller with the state police legal department in Frankfort said the agency agreed to the compromise because "investigators didn't feel that it would be detrimental to the case to release that information."

xx Judge exec. orders memory ribbons removed
« Reply #57 on: Jul 15th, 2008, 1:35pm »

Posted by Beth Sweeney

A grieving mother's tradition may soon be a thing of the past.

For six years, Sarah Teague has been hanging lavender ribbons on a tree next to the Hopkins County Courthouse, in memory of her daughter Heather who was abducted 13 years ago.

Sarah Teague says she received permission from then Judge Executive Patricia Hawkins to put ribbons on the tree.

However, current judge executive Donnie Carroll has ordered the ribbons removed permanently.

A meeting on the dispute is set for later today.
