Alyssa Angelique McLemore

Young Woman Disappears While Her Mother is Dieing

From: The Charlie Project :

Alyssa McLemore lived with her mother and grandmother in Kent, Washington at the time of her disappearance. Her grandmother spoke to her on the phone at 6:30 p.m. on April 9, 2009. McLemore's mother was dying of scleroderma, a serious autoimmune disease, and on April 9 her grandmother told McLemore that her mother's condition was worsening. McLemore assured her grandmother that she would come home. A witness reported seeing her in Kent that day, near 30th Avenue South and Kent-Des Moines Road. The witness saw a green 1990s model pickup truck, possibly with Oregon license plates, approach McLemore. She has never been heard from again. Her mother died three days later, but her family was unable to get in touch with her.

Authorities discovered McLemore's cellular phoned dialed 911 at 9:15 p.m. on April 10, the day after she was last heard from. The dispatcher heard a woman asking for help, but the phone did not have a GPS sensor and its exact location could not be determined before the line went dead. Authorities believe the call came from the Kent area, however. The caller has never been identified, and the phone went out of service a few days later.

A witness reported seeing McLemore some time before her disappearance with an unidentified male known to her. The man is described as Caucasian, in his 50s or 60s, about 5'8 inches tall and 175 to 185 pounds. He drove a green pickup truck. It's unclear whether he had anything to do with her disappearance.

McLemore has a daughter who was three years old in 2009. At the time of her mother's disappearance, the child was staying with her father, McLemore's boyfriend. Her boyfriend describes McLemore as a devoted parent who would not have abandoned her daughter. She was unemployed at the time of her disappearance, and very close to her mother. McLemore enjoys dancing and roller skating. She dropped out of Kent-Meridian High School in her sophomore year.

Due to the circumstances of her disappearance, McLemore is considered to be in danger. Her grandmother moved to Auburn, Washington after her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.

Height and Weight: 5'1 - 5'3, 130 pounds

Distinguishing Characteristics: Asian female. Black hair, brown eyes. McLemore has a scar on her abdomen.


This case grabbed me because of the circumstances. Her mother is dieing and some scumbag intervenes and abducts her so that she cannot be with her mother when she dies? Just seems really sad to me. Anyways, I ran the charts and they spoke to me right away so I wanted to publish my findings. You will see what I found as I present each chart. Here is what follows. Please forgive any typos or errors I missed; my vision is getting worse and my reading glasses need to be updated!

The first chart I drew up was for the time when Alyssa last talked to her mother. This phone call was made at 6:30 pm on the 9th. I can see from the chart that Alyssa is already tangled up with someone and this someone is the same person she is still with when she makes her 911 call on the next night. That chart will follow this one. Here, in this chart, you can see the first house ruler, Venus, in the sixth house with the seventh house ruler, separated by Uranus. This shows the two of them together, but under some strange circumstances. Uranus so close to Mars in Pisces shows me that this person she is with is an unusual person in her sphere, not someone she would ordinarily be with, and that he took advantage of an unusual circumstance to gain control over her. The sixth house can mean service or work, as in occupations, so, perhaps, Alyssa ventured into his workplace looking for help, for a job, for something. She was unusual in his sphere, as well, not the usual customer, perhaps. But if she were looking for a job or to employ his services or help in some manner, Neptune on the sixth cusp in the fifth house in the sign Aquarius, might indicate a camera shop, a radio station, a music shop, a TV repair service or other such technology related place. Most likely connected to film, pictures, music or other performance materials (fifth house). Did Alyssa want to be a model? A singer? A photographer? If so, then perhaps she went there to apply for a job or to offer her services. This is possible if those who know her could imagine such a thing.

There is another possibility when it concerns the sixth house. This man may have been in the military or special forces or could be putting on an appearance of being a military man, such as dressing in camos or telling stories about missions. He could be real, he could be fake. Neptune ruling the sixth and then positioned in the fifth, he could have met Alyssa in a bar or nightclub. She might have been trusting of him because he either looked like or, at the least, inferred he was, a veteran. He might actually be a vet. This is one other possibility when the ruler is in the sixth. But, again, only those who knew Alyssa would know whether she would find this attractive or be trusting of a man just because he was in the military.

Mars is a traditional marker for men but the sign Pisces can be either sex. There might even be some ambiguity. Moon in Libra is rising in the first house and this alone tells me that Alyssa was still operating under her own power. At the time she made the call to her grandmother she had not been abducted or trapped in any way, she was doing what she wanted to do at that point. She was where she was willingly. The sign Libra is a dual sign and implies decisions that are hard to make. Moon disposed of by Venus, the first house ruler, tells me that this girl was thinking clearly at the time and was not in danger. Moon trine Neptune clarifies communications and understanding and I beleive she was convinced she knew this man and was not afraid of him. They were actively talking at the time, mostly about his work or service. Venus disposed of by Mars shows that she was there on his invite; that she had gone there because he had asked her to. Whether this was where he worked or they were chatting it up in a bar or nightclub (or both), Alyssa was actively engaged with this man. She felt safe.

I wanted to leap ahead to the next night, when Alyssa was known to have called 911. She has obviously gone from feeling safe and being where she wanted to be.... to an obvious sense of danger and a rising fear. What has changed since the last chart? Why is she now trying to call the police? You can see that Mars now rules the first and is the new marker for Alyssa. It is in the fifth house in the sign Pisces. Venus now rules the seventh and is the new marker for the other person and this is in the sixth house in the sign Aries. Uranus still sits between them. Uranus now rules the fourth house. They are no longer in a bar or nightclub but they are in someone's home. Alyssa is in that home (first house ruler in the fourth) while the other person is high or drunk (the fifth house) and is acting erratically (Uranus in the same house with Venus and sitting between Venus and Mars). Moon is still right at the first house cusp, which implies that Alyssa went to this residence willingly. Moon opposing Mercury now has her feeling she has made a mistake. She now feels her decision to come along with this person was a bad one. Saturn moving into the tenth house indicates confinement or possible restriction, something keeping Alyssa from leaving (the tenth house being the fourth from the seventh shows the other person's home). So she is trapped somehow at this man's home and unable to leave. This is why she called 911. Moon disposed of by Pluto and sextile Saturn indicates that Alyssa is getting very angry and willing to get physical to obtain her freedom. Pluto can be indicator of violence.

Venus in Aries disposed of by Mars in Pisces (Alyssa's marker) means that this other person is now completely focused on Alyssa. Her attempts to get away will be countered. There is a Tsquare forming in this chart, involving the first house ruler, Mars, with an opposition to Mercury and a mutual square to the node. She has become aware of his "plan" and is going to try to free herself but it is going to take some doing. The open end of the T is the node, which says that she will have to go along with some of the plan in order to formulate an alternative course of action. She is in a real fix.

I believe she went there to visit this man to either get a job (sixth house placement in first chart) or to have her picture taken, perhaps as a modeling job or just to make a few bucks (Neptune in Pisces). Because we know she was unemployed we can also assume she was in need of funds. This next chart points out the issue of money

This chart is for several hours after she spoke to her grandmother and on the same evening. It shows the first house ruler, Pluto, in the second house (money and finance). The second house ruler, Jupiter, is in the third house with Neptune. This seems to indicate money to be made from taking pictures. Neptune rules film and cameras. Jupiter would imply easy work, something that was fun and to the liking of the subject. If she was a pretty girl, you can see the attraction photos would have. This placement seems to explain the sixth house planets in the first chart; he was not in the military but he was presenting himself as a working photographer. The cluster of the first and seventh house rulers in the sixth together with Uranus in Pisces would indicate these people coming together over work that involved technology and cameras. So perhaps he was even filming her or making photos for the internet. Somehow he gained her trust and she was there, as the charts are showing, because she agreed to his terms.

In this chart for 11 pm, you can see that the first and seventh house rulers are in the fourth house. This shows them at a residence. With the Moon (her co ruler) in the twelfth, it is possible that she is either unconcious or asleep. I am not sure if this was induced or if she was just tired. There are no pointers at drugs, at least at this point.

I threw this chart in at this point to show you something. This is less than an hour after the 11 pm chart and you can see Pluto rising in the first. She may have been unconcious from a blow to the head. In fact, the chart that shows the death pattern is only two hours past this one and so this blow on the head may have been the first step towards her murder. Let's go to that chart now.

Alyssa's death appears in the chart for 2 am. We saw her unconcious just two hours earlier at midnight. Here you can see that Pluto, which now rules the tenth, has moved into the twelfth and the first house ruler, now Saturn, is in the eighth house of death. I don't believe she ever regained conciousness after he knocked her out. Pluto is trine to Mercury (situated at the fourth house cusp), which indicates there was little resistance at this point. She "went along" with this because she was unable to fight. His ruler is now the Moon and this is placed in Scorpio in the tenth. The Moon, in turn, is disposed of by Pluto, showing us both the intent and the action. She died a violent death. In fact, her marker, Saturn in Virgo in the eighth house is disposed of by Mercury in Taurus at the nadir. She died by the fundamental loss of brain function that can be incurred by a blow to the head, a suffocation of the breath or of an overdose of drugs. Pluto wraps into the trine between Saturn and Mercury so I am pretty sure she was killed by a blow to the head but took a while before she died. She was, however, unconcious until death.

The grand trine in earth signs was the largest and most powerful feature in the death chart. This makes me think she was most likely buried. Mercury in Taurus describes a grave near the house, not far from the foundation, in a garden with flowers ruled by Venus. Mercury is very near the nadir so my guess is she is buried near the front door of his home. Pluto in Capricorn in the twelfth indicates a rough area with weeds and hardscrabble flowers, although colorful and in some places, standing in water or puddles. The sewer pipes may leak and there is a smell around the home. Moon in Scorpio at the midheaven describes a home in disrepair, dirty and unkempt. Broken water pipes on the property, standing water from rain and from sewer leakage; there would be bugs and amphibians like lizards, toads and salamander. Possibly also snakes. Rough tangled woods near the property, a natural garden created by free running plants with blooms; flowers with dark colors but eye catching. Purple, black, blue and green. Trash in the yard, such as a rusty old wheelbarrow or a rotting wooden cask or a broken down well with rotted ropes. Not exactly these things perhaps but similar and noticeable.

He is a photographer of some talent perhaps but not working as one. He's much older than she was and is pretty hardscrabble; sloppy in appearance and unkempt, such as his home. He looks disheveled. However, he carries the camera around and has enough practice through hobby to speak the language. He sounds real and his looks are not off putting; he actually appears to be a "bohemian" in such a way as many people imagine artists to be. `He talks a good game and seems non threatening. But his game has been to seduce young women this way, pictures for money, and then to take advantage of these women. I am not clear on whether he meant to kill Alyssa or not; I do not see murderous scheming. However, she resisted an advance of some sort and he hit her on the head. At the time that he hit her over the head, his ruler was in the fifth house so it is probable that he made a sexual advance. Her ruler being in the second at that time probably had her asking for money and she wanted to be paid up front, perhaps. Jupiter may have had her asking for a lot of money, expecting a big pay off, and this was not what he intended? So he smacked her on the noggin and, to his shock and surprise, she was mortally wounded? The charts do not show sexual contact between the two so I believe she posed for pictures, refused his advances and then was killed and he did not have sex with her after this. At the least, he was not a necrophiliac. He wasn't Ted Bundy. So he rushed around and buried her at the nearest safe place, his own yard. Since no one but Alyssa knew that she had even been there he felt safe doing this. People did see her with an older man and this was, most likely, her killer but there has been no suspects reported. The police very much need to take a close look at the older man she was last seen with. This could very well be the fake photographer who took her home.

In a final effort to help with this case, I want to give some more clues I see in the charts. This man may very well have been wanted for something; there could have been a warrant. Where he was staying was a "hideout" for criminals, a place where they stay to get out the public eye. It will be close to a water source, however not exactly on a river or other large body. It is probably deep water but it could well be an estuary or basin. I know very little about this area of Washington but if they have gators or crocs then it would be in an area where these animals hang out. If not, then look for bodies of water with turtles and eels. This home could be close to the ocean but not ocean front and be closer to a smaller body of water than to the actual ocean. For example, where I live in Florida, the ocean is on one side and the river on the other but there are small bodies of water all throughout the county which are deep and full of wildlife. A canal, an estuary, a deep water basin, a whirlpool, a large pond, if deep enough for gators or turtles, is the kind of area this home would be located near. Remember it will be run down, in disrepair, a crack house type of place where criminals hide. This young lady is buried on the property, not far from the foundation, not far from the front door, in an area with at least one tall tree and a thrush of wildflowers. The house may be run down and in need of paint, a rusty color of yellow or brick, mostly rubbed off down to the concrete. The flowers may be hot pink and red in color mostly but also purple, blue and black. There may be also cactus and other succulents in the landscaping, prickly and standing in dry rubble.

Venus was in the first degree of Aries at her time of death, so this man had not lived here long. Venus was also retrograde, however, so he stayed there for a very long time afterward. He may have just moved in there, in fact, as the first degree of any sign indicates a recent change. So if you wanted to check local rental contracts issued for that month in 2009, you might be able to narrow down some names. However, if he is a criminal and I believe he was, he may have just moved in without legal sanction and never signed a contract. In fact, the home in which he was staying may well have been foreclosed on or abandoned.

Amber Berbiglia

Young Woman Murdered In Broad Daylight

From Court Junkie :

23-year-old Amber Berbiglia had just finished her college exams and was planning on getting married, when her life was taken from her in May 2013.

Amber’s body was found lying underneath the Robert Edge Parkway bridge in South Carolina a little after 4 PM on May 3, 2013. Her car was found nearby, still running, with her cell phone inside. The cause of death was ruled blunt force trauma to the head.

Eight months later, police are still searching for answers.

Amber’s last known whereabouts were at a Time Warner office on Main Street at around 1 PM on May 3. She was there to pay her cable bill. Before that, she had stopped at a gas station to fill up her gas tank.

WMBF News has uncovered surveillance video of Amber at that gas station from just hours before her death.

Amber was engaged to a man named Jose Tolsa Soler, who she had met while she was studying abroad in London in 2012. Jose was still in London working at a hotel when Amber was killed.

Could Amber’s case be related at all to the disappearances of Brittanee Drexel or Heather Elvis? Both girls have been missing from the same area as Amber was found. Could there be a connection between them? Or did Amber have an enemy who would have wanted her dead?


NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Eight weeks after 23-year-old Amber Berbiglia was found murdered, no arrests have been made. But police still consider this an active investigation.

Amber Berbiglia was last seen alive on May 3. Around 1:30 that afternoon, her friends say she was seen near the Time Warner Cable store on Main Street.

Hours later, her body was found less than two miles away under the Robert Edge Pkwy overpass.

Police rushed to the scene after getting 911 calls from a passerby and worked quickly to preserve what soon became the scene of a murder.

"When we arrived, we set a perimeter, so nothing is moved before Crime Scene has photos or video," explained Detective Jonathon Martin, the lead detective on this case.

As police worked to gather evidence, detectives arrived to inspect the area around Amber's body.

But what exactly were they looking for?

"Evidence. We were looking for evidence on how someone left the scene. It's pretty muddy around here, all the time. So, we looked for foot traffic," said Detective Martin.

While documenting the entire scene, they also looked for any trail leading to Amber's killer. Things like footprints in the mud, or if any objects were dropped as the suspect was fleeing the scene.

"People think DNA is everywhere, but sometimes it is not. In this case, we looked for it. We took DNA samples from around the area, from around the victim. We also looked around her car, and inside of it," shared Detective Martin.

But solving a crime isn't as easy as it looks on TV shows. It takes a lot more work, and a lot more time.


One of my readers sent me this case and I want to thank all of you who take the time to advocate for these victims. My blog has yet to make a big difference in solving cases but it has the positive effect of opening minds and motivating people to continue this work. There is hope here. I must say that most of these cases make me really sad. I can't do one a day or even more than one a week because they are so dark and heartbreaking. This case is a stand out, in my opinion, because she died so brutally in such a short period of time... it seems unbelievable and really scary. I did the charts on this and they are also unbelievable and really scary. I hope they help shed light on what happened to this precious girl and what can happen to anyone at any time, it seems. I am curious about the possible link between this girl's murder and the loss of Heather Elvis and Brittannee Drexel. I have profiled each of these other cases and found that their murders were personal. Elvis was killed by her lover and Drexel was pregnant. Drexel was killed to keep her from having the baby. At least, that's what the charts revealed to me at the time and I still stand by those findings. So I have to say I did not find a link.

This first chart just spilled out in front of me and I felt the sadness creeping in again. You can see the seventh house ruler in the eighth house right away, a proven marker for a criminal. This person is sleazy, dangerous and aggressive. Uranus in Aries, right away, describes a highly unusual person who does not live by convention. Rules do not apply and there is a good chance the cops are already aware of this man because he cannot keep his head down. He is always creating chaos. Uranus is disposed of by Mars, so you can see the aggression here. Now couple this with the first house ruler, the Sun, right near by in the ninth house. This is the time when this criminal crosses her path. It is obvious. Now, both her ruler, the Sun and Mars are disposed of by the tenth house ruler, Venus. This is what brings them together; they are in the same place at the same time. Venus is closely aligned with the most violent fixed star in the heavens, Caput Algol. This always describes brutality and bloodshed and has been prominent in many famous murder cases, mostly those that became famous due to their brutality. I understand this girl was beaten to death. Pluto rules the fourth house and is placed in the fifth; I am surprised she was not raped as well.

She came across this criminal not far from where she was last seen, at the cable company office. He may have been panhandling or otherwise begging, perhaps asking for cigarettes. This caused her to stop long enough for him to commandeer her and her car. There is no doubt she was carjacked. The ninth house, where they came together, describes a parking area near a highway. Mercury in Taurus describes cars but it might be that hers was the only one parked there; there were no other people. The Moon in the seventh shows Amber in this persons' company, for whatever reason. However, Neptune being present also indicates that there was illusion at play and she had no idea who she was dealing with. There is a probability that he was a con artist as well as a dangerous violent criminal.

I jump ahead to the time of the discovery to see how it ties together. I will run charts for the between time but I do believe these will be the most revealing. In this chart you see the first house ruler, Mercury, in the eighth house of death. This shows her dead. Saturn shows us her dead body and it is in the second house, close to the node. Saturn is in Scorpio. This bridge crosses the intracoastal waterway and Scorpio is a water sign. It usually describes deep water with big fish. But she was found on land, under the bridge, which is described by the second house. Since it is near the node, we can assume he planned it this way and chose this spot in advance. But I do not think he knew this girl. I think he has killed before and grabs opportunities when they arise, leaving bodies in certain places he considers special for some reason.

In this chart you also see the tenth house ruler is Mercury. This describes more of the scene; the tenth house rules the authorities and here the ruler is conjoined her ruler, showing the authorities with her body. They have come together on discovery. But also Mercury rules cars and underpasses and highways... etc.. and this is how and where she was found. She was beaten to death instead of being shot or strangled because Mars is in Taurus, the sign of the pugilist and is trine to Pluto in Capricorn, a marker for being beaten, mostly by tools. Pluto is a violent marker in forensic charts and the sign Capricorn rules wood, rock and other natural elements. He may have used a bat or other large stick.

Neptune on the seventh cusp while conjoined the Moon in the sixth tells me he was nearby when the cops arrived. He was actually watching all of it from a hidden place. The fourth house ruler (the current location) is Jupiter, the planet of joy. Jupiter is disposed of by the first house ruler, Mercury, in the eighth house, telling us that he enjoys / enjoyed killing. He got a real kick out of beating this innocent girl to death. It's hard for those of us who find joy and solace in love and compassion to fathom that there are those who find joy and solace in murder. But this man does. It is because of this that I believe he is likely a serial killer or, at the least, a repeat violent offender. He actually wasn't far from where her body was found (Moon within a few degrees of the seventh house ruler) but he was well hidden from view (Neptune).

This is the chart where the first house ruler, Mercury, first enters the eighth house of death. Still disposed of by Venus, with Venus close to Algol. Mercury opposes Saturn in Scorpio in the third house. She was beaten to death right there near the overpass after being driven (or forced to drive) around the area for awhile. I don't know if he was looking for a place to leave her or what, but at 3 pm, they arrived there at the underpass and he beat her to death and left her. Perhaps she thought he wanted to go there or be taken there for some reason. Perhaps she thought he was homeless and slept under the bridge. I wish I had been a fly on the window of that car. But you can see Mercury entering the eighth, the first sign of impending death, and opposing Saturn, a marker for her body, in the third house (the car). Saturn is retrograde so she did not die easily; with all the planets in physical Taurus it is probable that she fought back. The node in the third shows planning; he needed a car to pull this off and he waited for the right victim. Saturn is disposed of by Pluto in Capricorn just entering the fourth house. All the markers point to a brutal beating death that happened right there where he left her.

Now, how do we determine clues to his identity? We have already discovered that he was / is a criminal and that he is dangerous and has done this before. Similar crimes, I'm sure, have been investigated. There is something unusual about his appearance, most especially on the face and head. An unusual shape to the head, perhaps or marks on the face. He has a fighter's body, medium height, stocky build, thick hands. Uranus square Pluto describes someone with a chip on his shoulder, that would explode in anger easily for unexpected reasons. He is a hot head and has a rebellious personality.

This girl was murdered for no reason other than being in the same place as a dangerous killer. The police need to get this guy or other women are going to die.
