From Find Kara Kopetsky :
Kara Kopetsky was a typical teenage girl. She had friends, a large loving family and was looking forward to shopping for clothes to have her Senior pictures taken, but Kara didn't get to have Senior pictures, Senior Prom, Graduation, College years or any other mile stones normal/typical teenage girls have.
On 4-28-07 Kara was abducted by her abusive boyfriend while waiting outside her place of employment for a friend to pick her up after work. She had to jump from his moving vehicle to get away from him. The boyfriend was arrested and the following Monday Kara obtained a Order of Protection against him.
On 5-4-07 Kara went missing. This was the Friday before the scheduled court date regarding her boyfriend abducting her.
The charges were dropped by the Belton Police Department, stating she was a runaway and if she knew the charges were dropped she would return home. KARA WENT MISSING ON 5-4-07, she hasn't returned home.
Friday, May 4, 2007
The morning started out just like any other morning. Kara decided to walk to school just a few blocks away instead of having her mom drive her. Later that morning, she called her mom to bring her a book for one of her classes that she had forgotten at home. Kara also asked her mom to wash her work clothes since she had to work that afternoon after school. Mom took the book up to school and left it in the office for Kara to pick up later. At some point after that Kara got the book from the office.
What happened next remains a mystery.
Kara did not come home from school that day and did not show up for work that afternoon. Her mom and stepdad called her repeatedly and called around looking for her before reporting her missing that evening.
It has been confirmed that the last phone call on her cell phone was about 10:30 that morning. Since then, the police have determined that either the cell phone has been shut off or the battery has run down. In addition to that, there has been no activity on her bank account and nothing is missing from her house. All of her clothes, belongings, and IPOD are still in her room.
The police and family have talked to her friends and no one has seen or had contact with Kara since she disappeared.
Stats: Belton, Missouri MO May 4, 2007 10:30 am LAST PHONE CALL
This case was emailed to me by several readers. Because there seems to be a lot of interest currently in this case, I felt compelled to look at it. The charts were viable so I went ahead and ran them. I was immediately suspicious of the boyfriend, considering he had been abusive and had already abducted her once. She was scheduled to go to court against him on the abduction charge within a few days of her final disappearance. This is hinky. But I am sure he was the first place the cops looked and perhaps he was still in the clinker when she went missing.. but does he have friends? Someone willing to take it out on this girl? Let's see what the charts say.
First of all, let me note that this is a tough one because of the sketchy time line. She went to school, asked her mother to bring a book and there is no record of what time of day that actually was. The last cell phone call she made was at 10:30 am but that does not mean she wasn't in class after that. There is no report of whether she finished last period or was seen leaving the school. So this makes the case really hard for me. But I was willing to start with the chart for 10:30 am and see what I could find my moving charts forward. Now, as you can see, by looking at the chart for 10:30 am, that Kara was still in school. Cancer is rising, the Moon is in Sagittarius in the fifth house. In fact, this might have been around the time she was concerned about a book she left at home and this last phone call may have been the one she made to her mother. There is no note in the case details of whether or not that was the case.. or to whom that last call was made. None the less, according to the chart data, I can safely say that she was in school up until that time. The Moon, her marker, is disposed of by Jupiter in Sagittarius in the sixth house. There was nothing else on this girls' mind but school; she was busy with classes. There is also nothing in the seventh house and the seventh house ruler is Saturn, which is placed in the second. I think this is her mother, in possession of her belonging, the book.
Moving the charts forward, I see that the ascendant and placements do not change until 1:15 pm, when the Sun moves into the ninth house alone. Here she is, stepping outside of the school, perhaps to smoke a cigarette? Anyways, she is outside the school alone and look at the seventh house cusp. Aquarius is falling with Uranus conjoined Mars in the eighth house. And here, too, the node is hovering. A volatile combination and a karmic one, too. Does the node indicate planning.. or is it just a Uranian moment of chance? Neptune on the descendant shows this person to be hiding outside. Perhaps that last phone call wasn't to her mother after all, but to a person who was now at the school and this is why she stepped outside. Or there is that chance that she stepped outside, for a smoke or to use the phone, only to find a stranger hiding there, looking for a victim. Either scenario is possible. The Moon is conjoined Jupiter in Sagittarius in the fourth house so she is still on school grounds and was not planning on leaving so this was not a rendevous for her to run away. But the Moon trine Saturn in the twelfth does imply she was doing something in secret; this supports the idea that she was meeting someone outside that she was otherwise not supposed to.
Who was this person who was waiting outside? Well, he or she is defined by Uranus in Pisces. This does not mean they are a Pisces or have Uranus prominent in their chart, it is simply a delineator. This would tend to define someone who lives "outside of the box", who ignores the rules and is rebellious towards authority. This person might have a fondness for the occult or the metaphysical and could practice "magical thinking", where they believe every instance is fated and that chance works on their side. There may also be a peculiar personality, an over-adventurous nature and a desire for strange or odd experiences. Dark brown hair is likely; gray or blue eyes; pale complexion; medium height. Hobbies might include fish keeping, surfing, ice skating, snow skiing or scuba diving. Loves the water. In the event chart, Uranus conjoined Mars indicates that this person was very aggressive and forceful with Kara and may have resorted to violence. Neptune and Uranus are in mutual reception so these energies are extremely strong at this time. This person has one sole purpose: to meet with Kara and take control of her.
Saturn is disposed of by the Sun, Kara's marker, and they are in square aspect. This indicates that Kara resisted and did not want any part of this but felt obligated. A sense of loyalty played a part. Saturn in Leo is nothing if not loyal. She would have kept this a secret (Saturn in the twelfth) because she knew it was wrong (Saturn square the Sun). And with the Sun inconjunct to the Moon-Jupiter conjunction I cannot help but think that this was big mistake for her; a miscalculation where she simply made a judgement that was false. Perhaps she trusted someone only to discover that her trust was misplaced? But I do not believe she was taken in that moment, as the chart for 1:30 pm shows Mercury entering her sphere, closely following the Sun. Since Mercury rules the eleventh house I would say that this person was another student, perhaps a mere acquaintance or maybe someone she knew as a friend? At that same moment, Neptune slips into the sixth house, losing it's power which might mean that this other student actually saw the visitor. There may be an eyewitness who saw the person who abducted Kara. Without Neptune hiding the seventh cusp, it is likely that the person was actually sighted by the interloper (Mercury) but if the child was young enough the connection might not have been made, even after Kara went missing. There is another consideration here, as well, tradition often describes Mercury as a liar or deceiver so it's possible that this student has kept the secret for a reason.
At just after 2, the ascendant changes and the event changes direction. Virgo on the first house cusp moves Mercury onto Kara's marker, which is very interesting. This basically describes a scenario where the other student has left the scene and Kara is alone with her abductor, now defined by Neptune (Pisces on the seventh). The interesting aspect in this new formation is that Mercury is both under the Sun's beams AND combust. This is very scary. Kara is suddenly in very grave danger now that the other student has left. In fact, I believe that school probably lets out sometime around 2 or 2:30 in most places so this person is now panicked and determined to get this done before he or she is caught. Neptune in the sixth describes desperation and sickness. This person could very well have a mental illness or a drug or alcohol dependancy. Mercury, Kara's marker, is sinister to a square with Neptune (her abductors marker) so she does not have good feelings towards this person, however the Moon inconjunction to her current marker, Mercury, indicates that she misjudges the situation to her detriment. She may not have liked this person but, for some reason, she either was not afraid or judged the other person as non threatening. The inconjunction clearly shows that his was a mistake. The angular T square involving an opposition from Venus in the tenth to Pluto in the fourth with the outlet being the square to Mars in the seventh, shows that the bottleneck of emotion will result in violent action on the part of the abductor. Mars square Pluto guarantees that he or she has a short temper.
It's funny how the chart for just after three shows them leaving the school in a car. I would think that would be the time when the school was finally cleared out. This person was forceful and restraining with Kara and with the Moon hiding in the fourth house during the first hour, it is possible that she was moved to a closed location like a closet. I can't be sure but the charts do seem to show her being restrained or intimidated. This would explain why she didn't scream and yell or call for help as other people were leaving the school. She was likely hidden away somewhere or in a place not easily noticed as people left the school. If there was a wooded area near the school or a play/sports area that was a distance from view, these places are likely with Mercury in Taurus in the ninth and the Moon in Sagittarius. But at 3:10 pm, you can clearly see the Moon in Sagittarius leave the fourth house and enter the third. This indicates that Kara is moving and the third house describes cars. It can also describe neighborhood roads, walking and biking but with Neptune in the sixth, I believe she was hidden and a car is the best way to do that. Mercury is dexter from conjunction with the Sun so some of the danger is alleviated but it is still under the beams and combust, pointing at fear and grave troubles.
The T square involving Venus, Mars and Pluto paints a picture of a romance tainted by jealousy, control and anger. I am really beginning to think this is her boyfriend, aren't you? I mean, who else would she scoot outside, secretly, to meet? Who else would have these sorts of desperate feelings? Who else would an onlooker dismiss? I am not saying this charts proves he is guilty but if it wasn't her boyfriend, it was someone else she knew who also had feelings for her. So, if the boyfriend has been eliminated for a concrete reason, then all other interested parties should be investigated. This person wanted her in more ways than one and he or she knew Kara before this happened. She went outside to meet this person and although she did not have good feelings, she was not afraid.
The chart for 4 pm shows there was sex involved. They are still in the car, Moon is in the third, but Mercury has moved into the eighth with Neptune in the fifth. With Mercury and Neptune square, this was either forced sex or consensual out of loyalty or concession. She may have thought that if she had sex with him (I am now sure this is a man) then this would all end. That may have been the miscalculation I saw in the course of events but I am not sure. The chart for 4:30 seems to show them parking the car in the woods. The Moon in Sag is still in the third, indicating they are in the car, but the Ascendant has changed to Libra and Venus is just now moving into the ninth house. The seventh house ruler is now Aries with Mars right at the Descendant. He has taken control of her and is bossing her around; he might even be physically intimidating. Mercury ruled her for the first few hours, showing her talking to him, perhaps trying to talk some sense into him. But now it's Venus, just after the forced sex, and she is more passive, more seductive in an effort to soften his anger but Venus and Mars are square, showing that everything she tries to do falls short of what he wants. He is getting madder by the minute. His new marker, Mars, is closely squared to Pluto, pushing his anger to violence. The Venus-Mars-Pluto T Square and bottleneck is now energized enough by the angular placements to force this aggression close to explosion. With Saturn inconjunct to Mars at this point this man is incapable of making an unemotional, reasonable decision. Everything he does from here on in is a big mistake.
The seventh house ruler, Mars in Pisces, is also conjoined Uranus so this situation is totally unpredictable and his behavior will suprise even himself. Mars implies a weapon, most often a gun, but the sign Pisces brings to mind the color silver and indicates this could also be a knife. Mars square Jupiter indicates that he thinks he is right and cannot be swayed but it also indicates that he believes she does not take him seriously. In fact, he fears she is laughing at him, that she thinks he's a joke. This is his chance to show her otherwise. Saturn inconjunct Mars also implies that history has something to do with his current anger and that he thinks he is acting seriously, in a manner that is called for. He is all about punishment. Mars in Pisces in the sixth shows his desperation and hints at mental illness.
The charts don't change much for another hour. I believe they spent time parked in the car, in the woods, where he intimidated her with a weapon and threats. He also forced her to have sex, as a sort of reassurance. She complied either because she didn't have a choice or because she thought it might defuse the situation. But Mars and Pluto working like they are in these charts, at this time, he is just at the end of his rope. No amount of neck rubbing is going to make him relax. He is really angry. And after the hour passes, the chart for 6 pm shows them getting out of the car and into the woods. The Moon is in the second, in the sign Sagittarius, so this is a small wooded area where people camp or play games or hunt and there is a body of water nearby. Small animals populate the area; squirrels, beavers, rabbits, turtles, snakes, etc.. a lot of small, land crawing creatures. The Moon indicates that the water would be a pond or a lake, large enough for fishing. Kara and her captor spent time in this area, walking or sitting in the car. Within the next hour, the Ascendant moves to Scorpio. Mars remains in the fifth house with Pluto in the second. The seventh house ruler, Venus, is in the eighth. The reason they are in the woods is sex again.
Venus in Gemini positioned in the eighth disposed of by Mercury in the seventh means he is doing all of this for their "relationship". He thinks by forcing sex she will suddenly become compliant or realize how much she loves him. Again, I am thinking this is the boyfriend... or someone else she was either involved with currently or in the past, someone who thought they belonged together. It could even be a stalker. But she knew who he was. He was not a stranger. Her markers, both Pluto and Mars, are in square configuration. This indicates that she just doesn't do the "right" things. She makes mistakes and says the wrong things. She assumes things that aren't true and she tries to assert herself at the wrong times. This to me indicates that, perhaps, this wasn't a current boyfriend, who she would have known better than this, but someone who was either in the past or was an admirer that had not gotten to first base. It just doesn't seem right that she is this clumsy with someone she knew as well as the current beau. At this time in the course of events, Pluto, her co ruler, is opposite Venus, his marker, so she is fighting him and possibly forcibly. And with Mars sinister to a square with Pluto, this was just the wrong time to do that. The way the Ascendants are trading placements, it seems like they were changing roles, too. One minute, he's the angry aggressor. Not much later, it is she who is a screaming banshee. There is no doubt they are fighting.
They remain this way for another two hours, arguing and going through the paces with each other, until 10 pm, when things really escalate. Sagittarius moves on the Ascendant and her new markers, Jupiter and the Moon, are in the first house close to Pluto. Gemini is falling and with Mercury in Taurus in the sixth, he is suddenly the weaker player; perhaps he is not paying attention? But this is when she makes her big break. The force of her rulers in the first house, with the primary ruler in dignity, and Pluto supporting them, she makes an aggressive effort to get free. Does she grab the gun? Does she open the car door and try to run? Does she just make a break for it while they sit somewhere in the woods? I can't be sure; charts are never THAT precise. But you can see the planetary energies lining up on her side and pushing her to make a move. But here are the harbingers, the omens, I am always looking for: Saturn is hinging on the eighth house cusp with the Moon moving towards the twelfth. Pluto is moving towards the first house cusp. This looks like violence leading to a death pattern. Bad news.
When you see that the Moon rules the eighth house and it's getting ready to cross the Ascendant and is, as always, the co ruler of the chart, it looks like death. This, with the twelfth house ruler, Pluto, inching it's way through the first, closing in on the Ascendant. Another death pattern. Add to this the position of Mars at the Nadir while co ruling the twelfth house and it just looks bad. Please don't think that every chart that has similar placements means somebody will die or that every death has this pattern. There are many variations of a death pattern and they depend upon the previous and future charts for support. But it is a fact that, in reading charts, if there are numerous placements and aspects that read for violence or death, especially in forensic charts where someone is missing or dead, that this can be predicted. In this chart there are many pointers to a death pattern and this is supported by various other placements such as Jupiter retrograde, Pluto in the first (regardless of which house it rules), the fourth and twelfth house rulers the same planet, both of these rulers square to the ruler of the eighth and the ruler of the twelfth the Moon, which rules the event chart in whole.
So, the charts tell us that she gets up the guts to make a break for it and a fight ensues. And he kills her in the course of that fight, either by accident or design. With Uranus so close to Mars, violence has been an unpredictable player in the events of the entire evening. The chart for 11 pm shows that he kills her sometime between 10 and 11pm. Looking at the chart for 11 pm, the death pattern I just explained to you is very clear. But when drawing up a chart for midnight, the same pattern continues. When the charts repeat and support previous aspects, the inference is that the condition is terminal.
In the chart for midnight, Capricorn is rising with Saturn in the eighth. The seventh house is occupied by Cancer with the Moon in the twelfth. The Moon is the event chart ruler, so this shows the victim and her abductor together when she dies, or after she is dead. The eighth house ruler is now the Sun, positioned in the fourth. Pluto is just inside the twelfth, right behind the Ascendant, square to the fourth house ruler, Mars in Pisces. She comes to rest in a body of water. That's what I think the chart is saying. Saturn in Leo in the eighth indicates it's in a place that gets a lot of sunlight; her body would have been quickly decomposed by exposure to sunlight or heat, which tells me she was left in shallow water near the surface. Mars in Pisces indicates that the area is frequented by sportsmen, probably hunters and fishermen. It also seems to indicate that her remains might be eaten by fish. I apologize for the graphic detail and gory images and I promise that will be the last. I just wanted to explain why it has been so hard to find her.
Going over the charts I want to see if I can trace their movements. When they left the school in the car at 3:30 pm, they went southeast. That would be southeast of the school. The next few charts a highway and then a wooded area. A highway located southeast of the school that runs past woods or forested areas is the place to start looking. Although the prominent sign is Sagittarius, the third house is also prominent, which tells me that although they went on a highway they stayed in familiar neighborhoods and ventured off onto smaller roads alogn the way. The time element of 2 and a half hours makes you think they must have traveled off to another city but the sign Gemini puts them in developed neighborhoods. So the woods are not off in an isolated area, they are accessible to the suburbs nearby. This is an area familiar to the abductor and to Kara. While the placement of Venus leads me to believe that they probably traveled a distance of about 26 miles, the sign Gemini tells me that this was on winding streets, backroads, small avenues and various outlets from the main highway and they most likely did not move farther than 12 miles southeast of where they started out. I get this from the placements of Venus and the Moon from the third and ninth houses. So when they got out of the car at 6:00 pm, they were no more than 12 miles away and this is my best educated guess. However, it is not the word of God so feel free to disagree.
The Moon conjoined Jupiter in the twelfth in the sign Sagittarius makes me think he may have used a knife as a weapon. His anger and passion was strong enough and he felt intimate enough with her to use a knife. The Moon as a shared ruler in the twelfth trine to Saturn in the eighth indicates that he spent some time with her before he disposed of the body. He lingered emotionally, perhaps crying or emoting. It also indicates that he dumped her in the water, in that lake or pond. Jupiter seems to indicate deep water and he may have originally left her in the deepest part of the lake but Saturn in Leo in the twelfth shows shallower water over time. Which seems to indicate that the body would have drifted over time and is now, later on, closer to the shore. Saturn indicates the condition of the body when it's found.
Saturn is also her marker in death so this truly is her body. Capricorn rising clinches it. Saturn disposed of by Sun in the fourth in Taurus also points to the little, confined area surrounded by woods and used by sportsmen. Small animals everywhere, an abundance of turtles, snakes and small crawling things. Again, the conjunction of the Sun to Mercury indicates that she is not buried deeply and is close to the surface. Mars in Pisces is her grave while Sun in Taurus describes the area. She is in shallow water near the shore of a small lake in an area where sportsmen frequent; small animals are everywhere, lots of turtles. The turtles feel like a clue to me; they may be a special species only found in the area or a type of turtle that is protected or endangered. They may be unusually large or exceptional in some way. The turtles stand out. They would be aquatic/land turtles who swim and live in burroughs. I know that seems crazy to mention here but they stand out in the charts so I have to mention this. It might help someone figure out where she is.
