"What has happened in this quiet, peaceful community of Nixa could have happened to any family within your judicial district," the letter began. "Therefore, any husband or parent is entitled to know what has happened to his wife or daughter, regardless of who they are." The letter, in essence, seeks an answer to whether "a murder has been committed in Christian County," and continues.

"However, with all of this the answer is still not good enough. In an area where just about everybody knows everybody it is hard to understand how a person can just vanish in daylight without someone knowing the facts.

"In plain facts, if Mrs. Blades left on her own accord she has not violated any law and the $1000 reward should have been paid, but since the reward was not paid there is but one other cause that Mrs. Carol Blades has been murdered.
