On February 1, 1982 Mary Ellen Barker was walking with her formerly estranged husband on the Sacramento River levee near Miller Park.

 

The couple were accosted by three individuals who supposedly bound her husband’s hands.
 

Mary Ellen was shot in the back and murdered. Mary Ellen’s husband fled on foot and got help from a nearby residence. No arrests have been made, and a lot of questions have been left unanswered.

 

After the homicide, the husband’s substance abusing brother mysteriously died from a supposed suicide.

 

Mary Ellen’s husband took the couple’s 18 month old daughter and remarried shortly after. No suspects are known to this day...

I can't help but think the husband had something to do with is, seems too convenient, but it sounds like it was a clean hit as he is still walking the streets. Did anyone collaborate the story of the three individuals? Sorry, I haven't heard of this case before and like to see if anyone has dug anything up yet. Thanks for the submission.

I am not sure how I missed your post, but welcome to the community Sunda. I hope @Powderedtoastman will come back and share more details with us. I am sorry to hear about your mom Sunda, and if you have any information you would like to share about what happened, I know we would all be interested in knowing what you have found out.

Hi @EWU Bob feb1 1982 my parents went for their evening walk along the levy of the sacramento river.  They were approached by 2 men and 1 woman at gun point.  I was told that they tied both of my parents hands behind their backs and sat them both back to back on the ground.  There was some sort of argument or disagreement between the 3 and at that point my dad told my mom that on the count of 3 they would help eachother rise to their feet and for her to run as fast as she could in the direction she was facing and go to the first person or home anywhere that she could get help and he would do the same.  So on the count of 3 thats what they both did.  The first shot grazed past my dads ear as he ran the second shot hit him in the back of his right arm and caused him to fall and roll down the levy. There was one more shot which fatally hit my mother in her back.  She was killed instantly.  My father was able to get someone in the neighborhood to open their door and  call 911. 

My parents grew up in the projects in seavey cir they both went to Mc clatchy high school so they were both very familar with the area and im sure most of the people.  They dated as young teens got married and then divorced before i was even born. My mom was unable to have children due to some sort of complication with her ovaries she ended up having a surgery after trying for several years and finally got pregnant with me some 8 years down the road..  

you know everyone has their thoughts or beliefs of what happend that day and to be honest their is only one  person who truly knows what happend and that person was my dad who not only passed two different polygraph test but was tied up and wounded himself.  Now as for my drug addicted uncle whom @Powderedtoastman speaks of in his post did infact die from an overdose but that was 10 years down the road  and yes my dad did remarry but i was 5 years old by that time so the   ( brother mysteriously dying from a supposed suicide and the husband taking the couple’s 18 month old daughter and remarried shortly after.) sure that happened yes but doesnt sound as bad now that you know how many years after they took place. Oh and the no suspects part well funny thing i recieved a call from the cold case detective a couple days ago and as far as i knew there was never any suspects but now there aparantly was one. Too bad he is already dead.  Dont know yet who that is but will soon find out and maybe might bring some sort of closer to everything  I just hope to god I dont know who the person is but then again I hope i do and then it all clicks and makes sense and I can finally stop trying to figure it all out   there is only one thing that really gets to me about all of this and thats when i was in high school my peer councling elective class topic one day was about helping people to cope and deal with the loss of a loved one and I brought my mothers death/murder up and my teacher at the time (Mr. O'toole) said that he remember that day and seeing it on the news he said he didn't know my mom but it was all over the news and it was a day that the people of sacramento could never forget.  I had mentioned that i had things to remember her by like my baby books and pictures and a diary that my mother wrote in every day from the day i was born up until a few days before she died along with all the news paper clippings from that day and what not. Mr. otoole asked if i minded bringing in what i had to share with the class and so i did if fact he asked if he could keep it the day i brought it in and check it all out during lunch and read the articles well I left my diary was running late for soccer practice that day never made it back to the class to get the weekend passes monday morning back at school and no more peer counceling or  Mr o'toole. I have been searching for him as well.  So im hoping when i see and talk to this detective he will be able to locate and help me get my diary back.........

Hopefully you get justice for your Mother. Whether it turns out to be your Father or if true about the 3 individuals. Someone needs to pay!

I am so sorry that you have spent most of your life trying to put the pieces together. That is no way anyone should have to live and I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I can’t even imagine how tough it has been for you.

I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you Sundra, did the cold case detective mention if he was going to tell you who it was? Thank you for the added details, did you ever talk to your father about that night?

      This is a case that remains cold, with no new information being shared with the public since 2018 - This is the Disappearance of Corrie McKeague

      Sadly, Corrie went missing not far from me in England - So I thought I would share...
      The Case
      Corrie McKeague (born 16 September 1993) went missing in the early hours of 24 September 2016 in the Bury St Edmunds area of Suffolk, England. Before disappearing, he worked as a Royal Air Force Regiment gunner.
      McKeague was last seen, on town centre CCTV footage, entering a cul-de-sac which contained a number of wheelie bins. His mobile phone was tracked via GPS from phone masts along a route between Bury St Edmunds and a landfill site near Barton Mills. Suffolk Constabulary were initially reluctant to search the site for McKeague's remains because a bin lorry that had travelled that route at that time had been estimated to have been carrying a load of only 15 kilograms (33 lb). In March 2017, however, the police discovered that the lorry had a significantly larger weight; more than 100 kilograms (220 lb).
      Whilst McKeague's disappearance remains under investigation and the case continues to attract widespread publicity, the belief by authorities, but not the family, is that McKeague was crushed to death by the bin lorry and his remains are at the Barton Mills landfill.
      Suffolk Constabulary have spent more than £2.1 million investigating McKeague's disappearance, making it one of the most expensive missing persons investigations that the force has conducted and in the words of Suffolk police, brought unique pressures on the force. The search for McKeague was stood down in March 2018.
      Information above is an excerpt from Wikipedia - further information can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disappearance_of_Corrie_McKeague

      Does anyone know of any new updates on Nicolas Sonderegger’s case? 
    • By dvaz92
      Zachary Waldron was last seen Monday morning, September 30, 2019 in Palm Springs, Ca.  He was trying to complete the C2C2C hike.  Palm Springs PD has surveillance of him come down the mountain and be put into a car. 
       
      They have been  able to follow a trail that has him from Los Angeles Airport (LAX) to Paris, France but that is where the trail dies.  This is his last known whereabouts. 
       
      Palm Springs PD, Deputies, Detectives and the Marine Corps are working diligently to help in the manner. 
       
      - This case has me scratching my head.  For one, the wife was a friend of mine back in highschool.  She started dating Zach awhile ago and eventually got married.  They have a daughter together.  Now, what i do not get, is if they have footage of him being put into a car, then i would assume that same footage would have given them more clues.  But then again, i would have to see this video they have.  Another thing, France has a lot of cameras, EVERYWHERE.  There is no video of him leaving the airport? no video anywhere in france of him?  I would assume French Authorities are probably not working as hard to find him but then again that is all speculation.  
       
      Another thing that has me looking at my friend is that fact that she has moved on like her husband is not missing at all.  Kinda fishy but then again people do mourn their own way.  But, looking at her social media, she only posted about his disappearance about two times and that was it.  No more info, nothing.  He wasn't found and i don't want to directly ask her about it either.  I do not want to believe she is involved but there are to many cases that makes me believe she knows something.  I would assume a person who's significant other is missing would be posting about them everyday.  
       
      This case is a head scratcher for sure.  What do you all think could of happened here?
