Angela Sigrid Ramsey

Missing 37 Years

From: Missing Angels :

IN June of 1977, 16 year-old Angela Sigrid Ramsey hitchhiked from her home town of Columbia, South Carolina to Deland (in Volusia County), Florida to visit some friends. For two days, beginning on June 19, Angela stayed at the Boulevard Motel on Woodland Boulevard in Deland. She had befriended a worker at the motel who helped her stay there. She was reported a missing person on June 21, when she failed to show up for a dinner date with a man she met in Deland. All her belongings were left behind in her motel room. She has not been seen or heard from since.

Angela's birthday is May 16, 1961. She was 5'3" and weighed 115 pounds at the time of her disappearance. At the time, she had dark blond hair and brown eyes. She goes by the nickname "Angie". Despite leaving her home in South Carolina of her own accord, she is officially listed as Endangered Missing with foul play suspected in her involuntary disappearance from Deland, Florida. She went missing on June 21, 1977.

Police searched her motel room and found her jewelry, clothes and a photo of Angela herself taken by the Boulevard Motel swimming pool. The photo was taken by the man who was going to take Angela out to dinner on June 21st, the day she went missing. The man also had found the motel room key, and handed it over to investigators. The man was questioned in Angela's disappearance and has been ruled out as a suspect. Investigators also discovered a letter Angela had written to her best friend in South Carolina, saying she missed Columbia and her mother.

Angela's father was in the United States Army, so as a result of her family's travels, she had accumulated many friends throughout the country. Angela's mother said she hitchhiked to Florida with truckers, then stayed at a friend's house for two days before checking into Boulevard Motel. Apparently the friend she stayed with offered her money before she left, but she refused the offer. Her friend's family mentioned she was very polite and well-behaved during her visit.

There are many questions in Angela's disappearance. Did she vanish from the motel? Did she leave the motel for some reason (with the intention of coming back)? Did she try to hitch hike somewhere to get food or necessity items? Did she have anymore contact with friends during her stay? Did she go to the beach at all? Did her friend from the motel see her at all on June 21st? Why did the man she was supposed to meet up with have the key to her motel room? Did she leave to try to secure a ride back to Columbia? Was there a mall or any other social setting by Deland she would go to? All in all, I believe Angela wanted to return home to Columbia because she was home sick, so it is obvious she did not voluntarily leave Deland.

Angela's disappearance is one of many that occurred in Florida during the 1970s. There was also a surge of serial killers in Florida in the 1970s, so I figured a good place to start would be thinking of all the serial killers who were running loose in June of 1977. The first serial killer many would mention is Ted Bundy, who ended his killing spree in Florida. He was imprisoned on August 19, 1975, and escaped from prison December 30, 1977, so we can rule him out since he was still in prison at the time Angela vanished. Gerard Schafer can also be ruled out because he was arrested in 1973. Christopher Wilder did not start his killing spree until 1984. Is it possible he started before that? Sure, but it is doubtful.

Then we have Gerald Stano, who confessed to killing 41 women, but was convicted of killing 22. Gerald started his killing spree in the 1960s, and peaked his killings in the 1970s. It was not until April 1, 1980 that he was finally arrested. He was trying to kill a teen girl in a motel room. She was badly injured, but escaped and went to the police right away. If it was not for her, his killing spree would have spanned out another decade. He is a possibility in the disappearance of Angie. He targeted teen girls or young women in eastern Florida areas. He would target prostitutes, runaways or girls who liked to hitch hike. He would often cruise the strip of various towns, go to the beaches or motels where he knew young people liked to hang out. He is thought to be responsible for the disappearances of 12 year-old Susan Basile from Port Orange, Florida and 13 year-old Gail Joiner from Thonotosassa, Florida. Gail vanished two hours away from where Angela did in Deland on September 22, 1972. Susan vanished on June 10, 1975 from Port Orange, which is only 19 minutes away from Deland, where Angela would disappear from two years later. I believe Gerald Stano is someone who was very capable of taking Angela. Looking at the disappearance of Susan, we know he was likely to have crossed into the Deland area at some point. He target teen girls who were run aways or who liked to hitch hike, like Angela. He also would often go to motels to find his victims, and Angela was last seen at a motel.

I also searched the NAMUS and Charley Project databases for other cases in Florida that have similarities to Angela's. I based it on the ages, area, time frame and circumstances of the girls who were missing, such as if they liked to hitch hike, vanished from a motel or public "hang-out spot" or if they went missing not too far from Deland, Florida. Out of all the missing persons cases in Florida, I believe these would be most similar to Angela's disappearance, based on what we as the public know.


I have worked on this case on and off for about a year. At first, I could not make sense of what I was seeing based on what the reports say. But after giving it time and study it finally came together for me. I made the mistake of thinking she had to have been at the motel up to the time when her date was supposed to happen but I now know this is not how it went. When you see the charts you will be as shocked as I was but mostly impressed by the consistency of Astrology and how it just doesn't waiver from the truth. Instead of starting with the time of her "date" that evening, I backed up the charts and discovered something surprising. I ended up running charts backward to the apparent time of abduction as the charts revealed to me. Prepare to be amazed.

If you study this chart for 1:00 am on the day she disappeared, you can see that she is about to meet up with someone at the motel. The first house ruler, her marker, is in the ninth, disposed of by Jupiter in the third. This clearly shows her in the parking lot outside the motel (the third house rulers vehicles and the ninth rules garages). The ninth is also the third from the seventh so it tells us something about a car belonging to someone other than our victim. We know Angela didn't have a car and was in the habit of hitchhiking or bumming rides. Since Mercury rules the seventh (and is also the natural ruler of vehicles and travel) and is posited here in the third house (the vehicle), I would guess that this is the person who had the car. Remember that this motel is run down, small, cheap with few amenities; no pool or exercise area, simply TV and a phone. The parking lot would be small and cramped. So perhaps she is just hanging out, trying to get a ride somewhere, perhaps to get food or some other necessity. Since the Moon, which co rules the chart, is in the sixth house, it may be that she is looking for a health related item, perhaps personal or not. Moon in the sixth in forensic charts often means she will never be seen again and since this is what happened, we can consider this an omen.

Mercury, the seventh house ruler, and Jupiter, the dispositor of the first house ruler, are both in the sign Gemini, so it is very likely that they met over a ride and did not know each other well. Neptune in the ninth may indicate that few people, perhaps no one else, even saw his car. Neptune in Sagittarius indicates it may have been a royal blue or purple car. The paint job might have been pearlized or otherwise made shiny and transformative to the eye and the interior may have been white. Neptune often describes vehicles with colors that are hard to describe and seem to be translucent. The tag may have been altered or removed and the car may even have been stolen. If anyone did actually see it, they may have described the color incorrectly. But as far as I know no one has been investigating this case so no one is asking about vehicles or their color.

What happens next and then continues for hours on end will amaze you.

It is in this chart that we first see them together, outside of the vehicle. The placement of the first house and seventh house rulers in the first imply that Angela went along willingly. The first house ruler, Mars, is in the first house with the seventh house ruler, Venus. They are together at this point, she is going along willingly and she is going to this place with him perhaps because he asked her to (the first house ruler, Mars, is disposed of by the seventh house ruler, Venus). The chart co ruler, the Moon, is in the sign Leo in the fifth house with Saturn. These two planets are disposed of by the Sun, which is in the third house. So she may have felt a bit pressured to go along and there was, presumably, a party of some sort going on... or perhaps they went to a restaurant or bar. I used to hang out at some of the iconic places in Deland during the 1970s and I can attest to the all night restaurants there. The bars were shut down after 2 am so I am thinking they went to eat (Taurus)\ with Moon and Saturn in the fifth). This may have been why she needed a ride to begin with, to hit a quick stop or to run through a drive in. But it looks like he may have insisted on going somewhere to eat and drink and she went along.

At this time, she looks safe and sound. She is moving under her own power, even if she did feel pressured to eat in a restaurant rather than get something and go back to the room. She is fine at this time. But there is one omen that things might change soon and that is the square between her ruler, Mars and Saturn in the fifth. We need to watch the eighth house during the next few hours to see what transpires between her and this man she has just met.

This is going to be a long post so bear with me. There will be many charts before I am done. This chart, for 3 am, shows the beginning of the change in location. You see the Moon on the edge of the fourth / fifth house axis which shows her leaving the establishment and heading for home. Saturn is already in the fourth and it rules the tenth, which always shows the current or next location. These planets are both disposed of by the Sun in the third, showing us that they are headed for the car. Although Neptune has moved into the eighth, it does not rule an angle and has no power yet. We will have to watch it, though, as things progress.

The seventh house co ruler, Pluto, is lingering in the sixth house, which disturbs me. There is definitely something wrong with this guy. It is disposed of by the first house ruler, Venus, so he is developing a fixation and it's not healthy.

This chart shows us that the took her home. Both rulers, first and seventh house, are still together but they are now in the twelfth. This shows them to be "out of view", in a hidden or secret place, possibly leading to confinement. At the same time, the chart co ruler, the Moon, has moved into the fourth house with Saturn (the tenth house co ruler) and shows their new location to be a residence or other shelter. I am thinking this was a work space, an office or other non residential location. Notice that Pluto, the seventh house co ruler, is in the sixth. The tenth house ruler, Uranus, is in the sixth. The fourth house ruler, the Sun, is in the second. All of these describe a location where work is done and money is made. Especially with the node in the sixth, which tells us he has brought other people here before and that he had planned to do so with Angela.

Now this leads me to suspect one of two things. This is a place where he actually does work of some kind and he uses it to lure unsuspecting victims, to make them feel safer. Or this is a place where he takes captured women to make money from them... such as through pictures, movies or selling them out for sex. There are no markers in the eighth or fifth houses so I have no reason to believe that this last suspicion is true.

In order to keep from posting a dozen more charts here, I am going to move along more quickly. None the less, what you will see here will amaze you.

This chart for two hours later, even with the changes on the first and seventh house cusp, show them to still be together. Notice that the new first house ruler, Mercury and the new seventh house ruler, Jupiter, are together in the twelfth. They are still hunkered down together in the same place. Mercury now rules the fourth house and the chart co ruler, the Moon, is in the third house, and this gives us a clearer picture of their location. This office is either a second home or work location for him (Gemini prevails here) or it's a mobile location such as an RV, a mobile office of some sort, a mobile home, etc.. Or it could be both. He could do his "work" out of an RV or a mobile office, which could be set up in a mobile home. This part of florida is full of mobile homes. All of Florida is run over with mobile homes, which I never understood with our hurricane problem why people would want to live in homes that can be blown away. But they do. And this man could have taken Angela to some such location and held her there. I am thinking they might have gotten some sleep with the twelfth house the ruler of sleep and dream life. She may have gone along with this if she was really tired or she felt she had no other choice. It could mean she was being held captive.

Notice that Neptune, now the ruler of the tenth, is in the sixth house. This is another pointer to the current location and that it is a place where work is done. But Neptune rules cameras, films, acting and all that and is the first indicator that he might be putting something on film. The fifth house is now holding the node, which is in Libra, and this could be an indicator that film or movies may be a part of his work.

In this chart you can see that the focus has somehow turned to money. Both first and seventh house rulers, the Moon and Saturn, are now in the second house of finances. These planets are both disposed of by the Sun in Gemini 29 degrees. There are a cluster of fixed stars in this part of Gemini that point to rape, lust and sexual addiction but the most intense marker is the opposition to Sinistra, a fixed star at 28 degrees of Sagittarius and is a marker for obsessive lust and sexual assault. With these fixed stars in this grouping, it could be determined that his purpose in having Angela there was to rape her. But why this had not happened earlier and why he waited until the next day I do not know. But the tenth house ruler is now Mars and it is in the tenth house opposing Uranus in the fourth. This shows us a sudden, violent attack that came out of the blue. This is happening because he has her at his mercy at this location away from her safety zone. Pluto is also angular in the fourth and describes the possibility of a violent assault at the current location. We have already determined that this location is also a place of work and money for this man so perhaps her assault was connected to his work? A way to make money? Could this be porn or sex slavery? The most popular of these in the 1970s was porn, forced on women either already in the trade or kidnapped for that purpose. The term sex slavery was never used but snuff porn was a big thing. As sick as that sounds it was. They would rape women and then kill them on camera. This was illegal, of course, but the scumbags who were into this work also sold drugs, kidnapped children for sale and killed each other over money. The drug scene was here already in the 1940s and 1950s but it was mostly shared among black musicians. Heroin addiction was common. But the bigger, larger drug scene exploded in the 1960s when huge numbers of average white people began using drugs like marijuana, LSD and Meth. Meth was called speed and it was mostly black beauties; bathtub meth came along later. So at the time this girl disappeared there were a lot of drug smugglers in Florida and most of them were bad guys. Bike gangs like the Iron Cross, the Outlaws and the Hells Angels had a huge presence in the area, mostly in South Florida but some in the central area near where this poor girl was abducted. Girls like Amy Billig were suspected of being killed by drug dealing bikers and there were no shortage of stories about girls being crucified to trees or being gang raped and left out in the road dead. We also had a few deadly serial killers come through this same area, including Gerald Stano, Ted Bundy, Christopher Wilder and Jeffrey Dahmer. These have been mostly ruled out by dates and times, as shown above, and although the other writer suspects Stano, it is my knowledge that he preferred girls younger than Angela. His victims were all 12 and 13. But I see that Angela was only 16 at the time, so Stano cannot be ruled out entirely.

In this chart, we have a number of outstanding markers. The tenth house ruler is conjunct the fourth house ruler and they are both entering the tenth. The twelfth house ruler, Mercury, is opposed to Neptune in the fifth. The first house ruler and the seventh house ruler, the Moon and Saturn, are conjoined and closely squared to the tenth house ruler and fourth house ruler. Then tenth house ruler, Mars, is opposed to the eighth house ruler, Uranus. This gives Uranus some power in the chart and is a sad omen in the sign Scorpio in the fourth. Pluto is also in the fourth house, hanging around the node. All signs that this girl is in grave danger. Both Uranus and Pluto in the fourth point to violence and upset within the current location. Pluto squaring her marker, the Sun, makes her the target of these chaotic and violent events.

The tenth house ruler conjoined the fourth house ruler in the tenth house tells me that they are in the same place, which may even be the same motel that Angela was staying at. As already noted, this was a small, drab place with few amenities and no security. The earlier charts placed him in the parking lot with the inference being that he was also staying there. A motel would meet the criteria for a mobile type of place because it is a place where people come and go and don't stay long. But many motels also have long term residents or even residents who run businesses out of the rooms. In the 1970s widespread suspicion just didn't exist and so many criminals ran their game with little interference. So perhaps this is what is happening here; the charts are saying that they are in the same place so I am reading it that way. So this poor girl may have been in the same motel the entire time, just in a different room and being held by people against her will. Reminds me of Elisa Lam.

Neptune in the fifth trine to Saturn in the first (with Saturn ruling the sixth) leads me to believe that this person was filming or taking pictures of Angela. The violence in the earlier chart may have been intimidation to get her under control. In this chart, the first house ruler is in the eleventh, which is a house ruling relationships and interludes. Working with the fifth house, it often portrays relationships that have no real meaning, one night stands, rebound affairs as it also is a marker for divorce or dissolution. Neptune in the physical fifth house opposing the cluster of planets in the eleventh just looks like a sexual situation and not one between lovers. One, perhaps, where one of the partners is resisting or wanting to stop. Uranus in the fourth is disposed of by Pluto so it may be rape or assault. Or she may be coerced into participating without so much resistance. Both scenarios are possible. Pluto in Libra in the third describes at least communication between two intimates, maybe one person intimidating the other with threats. Uranus disposed of by Pluto and ruling the seventh house would indicate that it is the man in this case threatening this girl and coercing her through intimidation. That's what this most likely means.

This next chart is the first to give an inkling of a death pattern. Although it also looks like she was drugged. Notice the Moon and Saturn in the twelfth house, which is an indication she was either asleep, drugged or knocked out. Neptune rules the seventh and it is in the fourth, which seems to show us the kidnapper going to her motel room. He may have gone there to return her things, to take some of her things, to return the key or all of the above. Actually, it was the man she had a date with who had her key. This, I am thinking, is very strange. Why would she go out and look for a ride somewhere and not take her key? Could it be that this man, her date, whom the cops cleared for unknown reasons, was her actual kidnapper? Hmmmm. It would make sense that she took a ride with him if she already knew him... or perhaps he made this up when he was caught with the key? Perhaps the only date they had was this nightmare he forced on her? Neptune is opposite Jupiter while being in mutual reception. This occurs between the tenth and fourth houses so perhaps he had access to both rooms and took advantage of this. Jupiter is conjunct to and disposed of by the first house ruler, Mercury, so when you combine the dispositions of Jupiter and Mercury it looks like a kind of game where this guy pretends to be somebody else while taking advantage of the open opportunity with this victim. Her room, his room. And his obvious deceit with Neptune at the nadir, I do believe he is preparing an alibi. This is where he gets the idea to say they had a date and he had her key and all that, pretending to know her better than he did and duping the cops. I hate to say it but the cops don't look like they gave this whole debacle more than a passing glance.

There is not enough in this chart to say this girl is dead. Just that she was knocked out and he went to her room to create his illusions for the authorities. He spent quite some time with her, the charts I have run well into the evening show them to still be together and the girl is still alive. I thought for awhile that he had not killed her but actually maybe run off with her somehow. But then the charts started to reform and complete what I call a "death pattern". It's where many of the power planets in the chart appear in death houses and with aspects to death house rulers. This did not happen until later that evening and I do not want to show every single chart I ran so I will leap ahead here to the time at which things begin to change.

In this chart, you can see the Moon in the eighth with Saturn. This is an omen. At the same time, the tenth and fourth house rulers are Venus and Mars and they are together in the eighth house. More sex. Pluto at the midheaven, disposed of by Venus and disposing of Mars. This is crazy. The Moon and Saturn are both disposed of by the Sun, which is right at the seventh cusp. He is going to kill her. He has the patriarchal power, so to speak, with the masculine Sun in masculine Cancer. Cardinal signs always have a lot of power. Venus and Mars are both still within opposition to Uranus in Scorpio, in the tenth house. It is unpredictable when and how he might do it but it will probably happen during a sexual assault. It will happen in his room (Pluto at the tenth, the tenth being the fourth from the seventh). Her marker, the first house ruler, Jupiter is in the sixth house with his marker, Mercury (Gemini seventh). Her marker is disposed of by his, telling us that she is there because of him, which most likely means he has held her there against her will. Especially with Saturn in the eighth, a marker for death but also for imprisonment and torture; Saturn in the twelfth shows captivity and misery. It is most often a marker for hospital stays.

Neptune in the twelfth shows induced sleep so I am thinking he drugged her. Knocked her out and had sex with her. More than once, in fact, many times and perhaps also took pictures. Her death is marked by the Moon in Leo, with the Moon ruling the eighth and placed in the eighth. Fixed stars in this same area, near to the last degree of Leo, are rather dark. Phecda points to sex addiction and pathological desires. Alfard describes strangulation, suffocation or drowning. It is likely he strangled her. The void of course position of the Moon moves a lot of it's energy forward into Virgo. So the chart for the next hour must also be studied.

This chart shows that after her death, he took control of her body in some manner. The Moon and Saturn proximity bring them together. This might imply necrophilia but there no markers at this point in time that specifically mean sex. But he is going to move her body so we need to follow the charts until we see him leave her. Then we can work on locating her remains. There are many places in the Deland area of Florida that fit this profile. Leo points to state parks and campgrounds with memorials, forts or government buildings. The fire element describes grills and cooking areas in the park. Leo also points to large animals roaming in heavily forested areas and some of the parks there are huge enough for this, including Deleon Springs State Park. But the location that stands out for me is Lake George State Forest in the Deland area, which runs along the St Johns River waterway, which satisfies the Sun in Cancer descriptors as well. The fact that Saturn is moving into the seventh also points the movement west of Deland. Moon in Virgo is pointing south by west as well. So he is moving her west of the current location. The Lake George State Forest is only 23 minutes, 13 miles from the motel where Angela was murdered. This traveling west. Wow. The charts are showing us where he took her and where her body might be found. Only problem is, the state forest is 3 tracts of land thickly forested with pine trees. It spreads out over 20,000 acres. This is a huge area to search and the results are bound to be depressing, especially after 37 years. No doubt the terrain has undergone changes. The Sun in Cancer may also mean that she was put in the water and the waterways there are very large, one of them stretching the length of the state. So that's another difficult, arduous search that is bound to end up fruitless. If anyone is really interested in searching for her, having the time and the means and the money, contact me. I will work on it to see if I can't narrow something down.

In the search for her killer, I can offer some clues to that end. I have looked at the descriptors several times and each time I am inclined to give Stano as a possibility. He was in the area at that time and he fits the descriptors. Mercury in Gemini gives someone small in stature, restless with a quick walk, mobile hands and eyes (darting about) and probably wears glasses. This fits Gerald Stano to a T. He was a Virgo, in fact, and ruled by Mercury. Even though he has already been executed, it would give closure to the case if he could be named. I am not sure how long Stano was said to have kept his victims and, in this case, the time of confinement is extraordinary in my experience but the methods are similar. He would rape, strangle and stab. That was his modus operandi and it fits this analysis also. Gemini rules sharp objects that move quickly, such as bullets and knives. Not larger objects, such as those described by Sagittarius and not ammunition in general. But bullets coming out of guns, for instance, or hands thrusting knives. As well, Gemini rules the breathing and Mercury rules the chest, so strangulation or suffocation also fit this descriptor. There is just nothing here that rules him out and he was active in the area at that time. In fact, he lived in the same county. It might be a waste of time trying to pin a murder on someone who has already been executed and there may be no one among Angela's relatives who are still alive or who still care. But if someone does, perhaps this will help bring closure.

Laurel Rogers

Florida Woman Disappears Without Medication

FROM Orlando Sentinel News :

February 4, 2010 | By Alan Schmadtke, Orlando Sentinel

Port Orange authorities are looking for 28-year-old Laurel Lea Rogers, missing since Feb. 1. Rogers, 28, was last seen leaving her residence on Horizon View Boulevard about 8 p.m. on Feb. 1, police said. Police said she does not have a working vehicle.

Rogers suffers from Lupus and does not have her medications, her mother, Lauretta Rogers, told police. The GPS on Rogers' cell phone shows the phone is in New Port Richey.

Rogers is described as standing 5-feet, 7-inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. She has blue eyes and sandy blonde hair that falls to the middle of her back. Police said she had no distinguishing scars or tattoos but that because of her Lupus, she has "substantial" bruising on her arms and legs, police said.

She was last seek wearing blue jeans, a black shirt and sneakers. She often wears rings on every finger and a necklace with two rings as charms, police said.

FROM Palm Beach Post :

Police searching for a missing Port Orange woman started interviewing area doctors Friday. They think a doctor may hold the key to Laurel Rogers' disappearance since she's been known to use prescription pills.

The family has been plastering the area with posters, but police are not getting a lot of clues, except that Rogers and some of her friends took prescription pills. So police, as they try to find her, are now looking into where those medications came from.

Doctors interviewed in search for missing Port Orange woman

Rogers is no stranger to doctors. Diagnosed with lupus at 16, she's been on medication for 12 years and her mother, Lauretta Rogers, says she knew, at times, Rogers was overmedicated. "I do blame the doctors for her problems. I do," Lauretta said.

Police confirmed they're now interviewing several doctors in connection with Rogers' disappearance, though not saying specifically which ones.

"At this point, I don't know all of her doctors anymore, but you see it on the news every day. Doctors are overprescribing every medication they can get their hands on," Lauretta said.

Police have learned some of Rogers' friends also took pills and those friends, Rogers' family said, are not providing a lot of answers.

"We've checked absolutely everyone, called absolutely everyone, everyone knows, and nobody knows any answers," friend Angela Eells said.

And yet, with Rogers' car still in her driveway, her family feels it must have been a friend who took her somewhere. Her bank accounts have not been touched.

Her cell phone, tracked by police to the other side of the state, has been turned off. She left all of her medications for Lupus at home, a sign, her family says, she intended to come home, and Rogers' family says she was not a person who made enemies.

"There's nothing in her nature to be argumentative or violent. There's nothing like that in her," Eells said.

Police said their main focus on interviewing doctors is getting information that leads to Rogers, not a drug investigation. There's a $5,000 reward for information that helps find her


This young woman has been missing for 4 years and they haven't figured out what happened to her yet. She's from an area not far from where I live so I've heard a lot about it. She is quickly joining a long list of missing women including Michelle Parker, Traci Ocasio, Jennifer Kesse, among others. It almost seems like they have more cold cases than solved homicides around here. I thought I'd take a look at this case and see what the charts might offer. This first chart is for the time she was last seen, 8 pm on Feb 1, 2010.

This chart tells that Laurel was off to do something she wanted to do, had planned to do, in fact. The Moon in the first shows her under her own power, not kidnapped, forced or coerced at this point. The first house ruler is in the fifth house with the node, telling me she had planned to do this in advance. The fifth house describes parties. But with the seventh house ruler, Neptune, in the sixth showing some other person at work, I am thinking this is a bar or restaurant rather than a private party. There are too many people "working" to say this was not a place of employment. The fourth house ruler, Jupiter, is in the sixth as well but it is in a different sign than the other planets. This shows me someone perhaps from Laurel's family, close relation or distant cousin or even someone close to a sibling such as a boyfriend or fiance of a sister or some such. So there are two employees in the picture here, one somehow related to Laurel through family or relation and another person. The second person is the one she is about to get tangled up with. This person is marked by Neptune in Aquarius. Because of Neptune's placement and the secondary placement of Jupiter in Pisces, I am going to guess this was a seafood restaurant, a fish house or a bar that serves oysters and fish snacks. Uranus in Pisces is in the seventh house, which makes it angular, and since it rules the sixth I am pretty sure that this is a seafood joint. Uranus and Neptune are in mutual reception so Laurel's visit to this place has everything to do with whatever came next.

The Moon in Virgo is rising in the first house, disposed of by Mercury in the fifth. Mercury is closely aligned with the node, as I have already noted. Saturn rules the fifth house and is rising in the first, behind the Moon. This is significant. Laurel could not have been kept from going to this place. She was determined to be there. Why is the next question and I just can't answer that; I can guess that maybe it was a band that was playing there or a special dish she really enjoyed or a cook she had a crush on or whatever. But Laurel had planned to be there, had probably gone there many times before and was going to be there, come hell or high water. Pluto has just entered the fourth house and it deserves watching but, right now, it has no meaning here. She is fine, there is no looming danger, she is happy where she is. Let's go forward and see if things change over time.

There are a few changes in this next chart but the consistencies are even more obvious. Moon still in the first house with the first house ruler in the fourth shows her in the same place, happy to be there, with the fourth house ruler, Jupiter in Pisces in the sixth house, probably a restaurant or a bar. This person that she is there to meet is a fascinating figure, with Neptune ruling the seventh from the sixth, Uranus at the seventh cusp and also in mutual reception with Neptune, the ruler. This all spells someone who is a bit bohemian, different in appearance, artistic, creative, even mesmerizing at times. This is a person who is either a real throwback of sorts, retro in look, behavior and clothing like a fine collectible or someone really modern, advanced, into technology, possibly space age stuff as well. Uranus and Neptune together describe an excellent memory, a fast and clever wit, a storehouse of information, a love for the past and memorabilia but a mind that loves to entertain the possibilities of the yet to be seen future. This person probably follows the space program and likes to talk about his memories of the shuttle or missile programs of the past. There is a strong pull towards him for Lauren and he is the reason she has gone to this establishment. From the collective influence of all the aspects, I would guess that he and Lauren were close in age and shared a lot of the same memories.

This chart also has a few changes worth noting. The Moon has slipped into the twelfth with Saturn. In a chart with no other indicators of death or confinement, the twelfth house tends to show us things that are hidden or not easily seen. Since the first house ruler, Venus, is still in the fifth we know that Laurel is still in the bar or restaurant and since the seventh house ruler, Mars, is now in the eleventh, there may be a romantic contact with this other person. In fact, the twelfth house planets may be showing us Laurel moving to a more private or hidden area of the establishment in order to make romantic contact with this man. I am only assuming this is a man for expediency; I have heard nothing about her sexual preferences. But there is nothing astrological that describes the actual sex of this other person. It could be a woman. But for expediency I am going to refer to this person as a man. Mars in Leo in the eleventh might be saying that this man was an ex boyfriend, or a lover from her past. The eleventh house tends to show us divorces, break ups, love affairs that turn into friendships, but combined with the fifth house influence, this could easily be a reprise. Mars in Leo is disposed of by the Sun in the fifth right up and cozy with the first house ruler, Venus. There is no doubt that she came together with this man on some level, possibly intimate or physical. The fifth house ruler, Uranus, in the sixth house in Pisces is not an important placement here but it does seem to hint that the establishment was a bit unusual and may be permissive in a manner considered sleazy by many. Since the Moon rules the tenth from the twelfth it would be my guess that there were places in the establishment where people met for more than just a drink. I cannot say for sure at this point that this wasn't a strip bar or some other sex oriented business. Regardless, so far the charts have shown us that Laurel is not in danger and she is under her own power.

I have to note that the first house ruler, Venus, is under the Sun's beams which is a traditional horary marker for danger. It could be assumed that she has been in danger most of the evening and probably because of where she was and who she was with. The chart for 11 pm, as shown, makes me wonder if she hadn't worked in this place in the past, was looking for work there at this time or was currently working there part time. The reason I ask this is because the dispositor of the first house ruler is Uranus, which is in the sixth house. Was she doing something rather unusual for money? Uranus often indicates part time or occasional work, often of a sporadic and unusual nature. I don't want to give examples because that tends to lead others to think I mean that they are actually doing certain things. I am not sure in this case what she was doing except that she had a romantic attraction to a man who worked in this bar or restaurant. Is there a possibility that Lauren was stripping a few hours a week for money or possibly waiting on tables in a place like this to make up for girls who called in sick or could not work for any reason? As I said earlier this could easily be a strip bar but is, at the least, a bar or restaurant of a slightly sleazy nature with an unusual atmosphere. I do not see her leaving this place until 12:30 am, as shown in the next chart.

This chart has the first house ruler, Mars, moving out of the tenth into the ninth. The shows us the subject leaving the public place (tenth house) for the parking lot (the ninth house). Mars is disposed of by the tenth house ruler, the Sun, which is on the cusp of the fourth moving into the third. So this person as described by the Sun is getting his or her car and Laurel is planning on riding with them. Notice also that the Sun is closely aligned with the seventh house ruler, Venus. This appears to show us two people heading out to the car. Moon in Virgo, the chart co ruler, is disposed of by Mercury, the natural ruler of vehicles and travel in the third house, the natural placement for Mercury and also a ruler of vehicles and travel. So there is no doubt that Laurel is expecting a ride from these people. So the jist of this chart is the story of how she left the car, when and with whom. If she gets a ride from these two people, how is it that she does not return home? The next few charts should tell us.

In this chart you see the first house ruler enter the ninth house. This is Laurel getting into this person's car. The ninth is the third from the seventh so it shows us the abductors vehicle. To underscore it, the Mars is disposed of by the Sun in the third house, which is the house of travel. So here we see the victim getting into her kidnappers car. We know that Laurel did not have her own vehicle so the charts are plausible. Sun in Aquarius describes a light blue, azure blue or sky blue car. The sun gives us something shiny so there was probably a lot of chrome. Something yellow in the windows or on the body, such as a bright yellow sticker or a yellow sun shade. Maybe some gold chrome or gold trinkets hanging from the mirror. The Sun is conjoined Venus and Venus rules the seventh house so there may have been another woman getting into or already in the vehicle and because of this, Laurel was not afraid. She trusted this ride because there was another woman going along.

When you do charts for a few hours at a time and see the first house ruler in the same place, you have to ask what she is doing. Mars continuing in the ninth with no death pattern shows us the girl still in that car and alive. So where is she? Are they still on the road? Maybe she's leaving town. But when you see that Mars is in Leo, a fixed sign, you realize that the car has gone somewhere and stopped. And when you analyze the sign Leo you realize they have driven into the woods, a wooded area like a park or just a patch of woods near the road with an area to park a car. Leo always describes areas with wild animals, tall trees and firepits or grills. This feels like a park backed up to woods where there are bears and deer. I hate to admit it but this describes about every thoroughfare in the state of Florida. So they have driven along an interstate or other highway near Port Orange and parked in nearby woods. Mars is disposed of by the Sun so Laurel is in the car because of a man, perhaps the same man she was interested in at the bar. He may be the only reason she has come to this point, in a car in the woods. But I am not really sure how long they stayed in the woods. I do know they spent hours in that car. I just cannot figure out why. The best guess is that they traveled quite some distance away from Port Orange. At some time between 2 am and 3 am, as you will see in the next chart, the first house ruler becomes Jupiter. Jupiter is at that time and from then on in the third house, the house of travel. So although Mars in Leo shows a stop in a wooded area, I believe Jupiter in the third has them on the road again. And they stay on the road until the chart for 6 am shows a drastic change. Now, this is 4 hours celestial time which can be quite some time on Earth. If I were to guess their direction of travel I would say that Jupiter is traditional north by west or north west and the third house shows directional north by east or north east. The two negate each other and give us directional north. The third house is cadent and is therefor slow in motion so they did not travel quickly. When you consider traffic when you move north on the western side of the state that is likely and I am thinking the time gives us northwest Florida or around the Pensacola area. Sadly, Penscola is a spring break type area with lots of young people and a reputation for sex slavery and abduction of young women. I'm pretty sure that is the direction being given in the charts.

But is Laurel still alive or is she dead? When and how did she die if she has passed? Perhaps the charts can nail it down.

Running the charts forward, progressing them hour by hour, I finally come to a death pattern. It is in the chart for 6 am, as shown above. This does not mean that she died at 6 am exactly but that by 6 am she was either dieing, dead or about to be killed. We only know from this chart that she did die at some point in this event and that she was likely dead in the early morning hours.

What first appears for me is the first house ruler, together with the Moon, in the eighth house of death. This is a opening salvo for the pattern and is a strong omen. Mars in the seventh shows violence on the part of a person she is with. This is physical violence mostly but can also be a gun. Mars is disposed of by a first house planet so this violence is aimed at our subject. Other indicators include the tenth house ruler, Pluto, a common marker for violence and chaos, is in the twelfth house of endings; the planet disposing of the Moon in the eighth is also in the twelfth house near to Pluto; and the node, which describes planned events as well as destiny, is in the twelfth house too. All of these twelfth house planets are disposed of by Saturn in the eighth house of death and Saturn usually describes the bones or, more generally, the dead body. All of these placements together point to death. It is most likely that she was attacked by this other person, probably with a weapon, and killed. Since the sign Leo points to fire and heat, I am going to assume this was a gun and not a bat or brick. There is nothing here that describes earthen or building materials or things that fly through the air such as arrows or knives. It just looks like a bullet to me, especially since the marker for the weapon is disposed of by a planet in the air sign Aquarius.

There are a few things you also have to consider. The seventh house ruler is the Moon, which is also a co marker for our victim and it is in the eighth with Saturn. This shows the actual killer staying with her body, moving her body and doing something with her after death. Not all killers do this; most of them just dump the body somewhere nearby and familiar. But this one is thinking about it. This shows some degree of remorse so there is no doubt in my mind that this person knew her and targeted her. I am not sure he intended to kill her and after he did he was probably sorry.

So assuming that Laurel died in the early morning hours of the day she disappeared we have to then ask where did her body end up? Was it dumped somewhere or buried? Is in laying out in the open or hidden in a trunk? There are so many possibilities but the charts will narrow it down. So I start with this same chart, with the death pattern, and analyze what Saturn is telling me. Saturn in Libra in the eighth house points to her body being left somewhere off the ground. In many areas this can mean mountains, hillsides, dunes or towering trees. Some of this may apply in Florida but it is unlikely she was left on a mountainside since there aren't any. So we have to get a little more creative in our assessment. Libra also rules sawmills, outhouses, upstairs bedrooms, storage units with clothing, closets, windmills, radio stations towers, ranger stations, lifeguard towers, etc... Among these we have to determine what works in the northwest Florida area since this is where the charts are telling us she was taken.

There are several sawmills in the northeast region as well as lumber companies. If any of these are up for sale, have been left unattended or have been abandoned or empty for awhile, then she might be on that property. There are also ranger stations in some of the heavily wooded areas throughout that region. There is also a large acreage dedicated to farming, with cows everywhere, and most of these farms have outhouses, many of which are no longer used. It is unlikely they left her in a lifeguard tower because it is too open and easily seen and people have been there since no doubt. Radio station towers are impossible and so are windmills as these usually don't have hidden areas or even platforms on which a body could be hidden. So these are ruled out. But there are lots of sandy beach areas inland and along the coast with dunes where she could be buried. So she may be buried in a dune or a sandy beach or she may have been left in an empty sawmill or outhouse.

This chart continues the death pattern and the after death ritual of the killer. At this point, he is represented by the Sun in Aquarius in the first house. This tells me he took her somewhere familiar to him and possibly also familiar to her and a place that maybe she had visited before. This has the feeling of a tribute of sorts, which dovetails with the remorse he appears to have. Saturn is in Libra disposed of by Venus in Aquarius, both air signs. The other markers for her burial place involve earth signs. The sign Capricorn on the twelfth house also with a Virgo Moon and Mercury in the twelfth in Capricorn. These all point to burial. Burial in a sandy, heavily wooded abandoned area where few people go any longer if they ever did. Way off the beaten path. Near sand dunes or an area of hillside above sea level with rocky sand and trees. Lots of stones in the area, making it hard to navigate and very little ground vegetation. Most of the trees are nearly ancient, gnarly and untrimmed, wild and unruly. Saturn rules Cypress and Cypress is plentiful in Florida (some harvested in the Everglades) and the northeast region has several sawmills and lumbermills that specialize in Cypress. The sawmill may be out of operation and in disarray, falling apart and old or it may be in operation and run roughly, with little upkeep. She is likely buried in a sandy, rocky, wooded area not far from an aging or abandoned sawmill that uses Cypress. If there is a pine tree stand in the area, then even better. It is a good bet, considering all these aspects, that she is buried in that area after being shot and killed. Northwest Florida on the gulf side near the beach but not on the beach, in a sandy gritty area with old, battered trees. She is in a dune or a sandy area above sea level where the sand is always shifting and moving in the air. There is little vegetation and no water in the immediate area. There are lots of rocks and stones and the area is rarely navigated. Look for tall, ragged trees that are wild and unruly and a run down sawmill, in or out of operation, with lumber made of Cypress. That's the best I can get from these charts but it's a good start if someone wants to recover her.

I want to take a shot at describing the person who did this to Laurel. From the charts we can see that he is described by Venus in Aquarius. This is the person who owns the car she rode in and the person she left the bar with. Venus in Aquarius traditionally describes someone very attractive and, in fact, is often described as beautiful or handsome. I would guess he is caucasian (white) and has blue or light colored eyes. His skin would be fair. I do not like to use traditiional descriptors a lot because they are stereotypical and often times racist or sexist. Using my more modern insights I would say that this person was "under the gun" in some fashion, being threatened or otherwise harrassed. I see that his marker, Venus, is under the Sun's beams and this can indicate danger. Venus is disposed of by Uranus in Pisces in the fifth, describing someone who is unusual and possibly eccentric, as well as someone who likes to party. This person enjoys fun, liking drink, drugs, sex or gambling maybe a little too much. Uranus and Neptune are in mutual reception so this person stands out, is unusual in some manner of appearance or personality. The dress may be artistic or cutting edge; the hair is probably kept in the most current style. Uranus in Pisces describes an eccentric sense of humor and strange or peculiar hobbies and pasttimes. This person has a dark side and can be melodramatic when depressed. He would be thin but not bony, having some fat on his bones. Venus is inconjunct to the Moon so Laurel has an inaccurate image of this man, perhaps not knowing something important about him and thereby making poor choices when it comes to him. For instance, he may be gay without her knowing and she is romantically interested. Not this in fact but something like this. Mars disposed of by the Sun with the Sun hovering over Venus would indicate that another man introduced Laurel to this man. The first man would be older than Laurel and someone she admires or fears to some extent, someone she views as powerful and impressive. The fact that this man introduced Laurel to this other man made the other man seem better than he actually is in reality. And, in reality, the second man (the one who abducted Laurel) is frightened by and perhaps even in danger from the first man, who is also has a tendency to misuse his power.

Pluto as co ruler of the first in the second house makes me think that money had a lot to do with Laurel's complicity. She got involved with these men because they promised to pay her for something or had, in the past, employed her. She was impressed with their financial situations and beleived both men to be wealthier than they are in reality. For a reason I cannot fathom from these charts, she went along for this ride to nowhere and ended up dead. I can only hope they find the "friend" who did this because he is likely to do it again and, in fact, may already have.
