FROM Nevada Daily Mail:

Nevada, Mo. -- Investigators from several law enforcement agencies are still investigating the Feb. 27, 1991, disappearance of Cheryl Ann Kenney from an Austin Boulevard convenience store. The "missing person" case turned cold many years ago, but on Monday, Jan. 31, 2011, Nevada Police Chief Graham Burnley announced that his department was going to open a cold case investigation, led by Nevada Police Sgt. Jeff Baker in cooperation with the Vernon County Sheriff's Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Baker said after the NPD announced it was reopening the investigation, calls from the public with tips and information came pouring in but tapered off after about four months. Baker said that he has personally followed about 25 leads and the other agencies have taken other leads to their conclusion.

Investigators have re-interviewed people questioned during the initial investigation and conducted first-time interviews with others. Baker said that an investigation of this sort is difficult. "Going back 20 years is rough, especially when you didn't have anything then," he said.

That lack of information has made the case hard all along, but Baker said new information has been followed up on, and he's preparing to follow another lead, now. "I don't know where it will lead," he said, "it may be a dead end."

Regardless of where the new lead takes him, Baker said, "we're going to keep looking. Hopefully, someone will come forward."

That is what Joshua Darnell, Kenney's son, hopes as well.

Darnell, 31, of Catalina, Ariz., has been very active in pressing for answers about his mother. Darnell was 10 when Kenney went missing and has spent a lot of time in the past years trying to find out what happened. He made a trip back to Nevada last year on the 20th anniversary of his mother's disappearance to stage a rally and help get the word out about his mother and the investigation.

Darnell has "been in constant contact" with the Nevada Police Department and said they have been very cooperative over the last year. Darnell and his sister Kristi have also had the help of radio and TV and the Missouri Missing organization.

Right now Darnell is trying to get some larger news organizations to look at the story. "I want to get some word back out there," he said, because "I think the answer is somewhere there around home."

With or without media attention the investigation will go on, said Baker. "We're going to keep it open and keep at it," he said.

One of my readers sent me this case and I eventually got a chance to look into it. Right away, the charts popped for me and I had a pretty good idea of what happened. If you look at the following charts you will see how clear they are. In the first chart I drew, which was for the time she checked out of work, you can see the first house ruler in the sixth house, reflecting the fact that she was at her place of employment. Notice that the ruler is disposed of by Mars in the eighth house and that Mars also rules the seventh house. Right before she left work, either while she was still in the store or just upon leaving the store, she ran into this person. Mars in the eighth house describes a criminal, a violent person with a history of violent crimes. Mars in the sign Gemini gives this person a knife which was used as a weapon. The sign Gemini being disposed of by the planet Mercury implies a thief or a person who uses his hands to take what doesn't belong to him. Mars by itself implies a male. Mars in Gemini is asexual but it also implies something young. I believe this person to be a young man who lived as a criminal and lived a life of crime. Mars in Gemini is disposed of by Mercury in Pisces in the fifth house so it's a pretty good guess that this person was a drug abuser and may well have been an addict. Mercury is under the Sun's beams so this person was afraid for his life, afraid he might die if he didn't get drugs, perhaps, or being threatened by other criminals. In any event, he was in fear for his life.

Venus, which marks our victim, is disposed of by Mars, so she is at his mercy. Everything that happens to her from this moment forward will be dictated by this criminal. Notice also that the Moon is in the tenth house so she was abducted in a public place, most likely her workplace and she had not left the property when she was approached. It is very possible that there were witnesses. But there is an interesting twist. The Sun rules the tenth house and it is placed in the fifth house so the witness was most likely the person this man was afraid of. The debt collector, most likely. Mars co rules the second house as well so this makes sense here. He went after the first victim he could find in the hopes of getting the money he needs to pay his drug debt and all the while under the eye of the drug dealer. So it is possible that this person did not act alone but that he and his drug dealer took her for her money. That is exactly what it looks like. Was this payday for Cheryl? Would she have just cashed a check? Would they have seen this or known this?

It is amazing how astrology charts work. In relation to what happens to us, it's an interesting study for sure. Notice how the rulers change at between 10 and 11 pm that night. By 11 pm, the first house has moved off of Libra and is now ruled by Scorpio. The seventh house is now ruled by Venus. And notice where the rulers are. Mars, with co rules, Scorpio is in the eighth house, where it has been all along but is now the ruler for the victim and not the assailant. In that event, it shows us her death pattern. Pluto is in the first house, showing an act of violent on the body of the victim. Mars, which rules the first house at this point, is in the eighth, showing forceful death. The eighth house ruler, Mercury, is in the fourth house. The tenth house ruler is in the fourth house, too, showing us that she was murdered in a public place. And at this same hour, Venus, which now rules the assailant, is in the fifth house, showing him to be "partying" or having a good time. It is very probable that he has gotten the much needed drug and was "getting high".

Taking a closer look at the chart we need to dope out the descriptors to determine where Cheryl was murdered. Since her body has not been found, it would be good if we could figure out where she was dumped, as well. The sign Leo on the tenth house cusp can indicate a government building and the sign Leo can indicate a park or recreational area. The Moon in Virgo can imply personal care and cleanliness so this may well be a bathroom in a public park. This is underscored by the placement of the tenth house ruler, the Sun, in the sign Pisces. Pisces works with this theory by describing bathing places or places with water sources. So this is a public park with showers and toilets. There are government buildings on the park property, such as a ranger station, a weigh station, a storage shed for DOT or any other government maintained structure. This where they took her and killed her and probably also while they were doing drugs.

Pluto in the first house disposed of by Mars in the eighth shows that she died as the direct result of an assault on her body. This could involve a weapon but it can also indicate a beating. In this event, I think maybe both a beating and then a weapon were involved. Mars in Gemini implies something that flies through the air, which can mean a bullet. But Pluto in Scorpio can mean a physical assault. So I am not sure exactly what transpired here. But I do know that all the indicators show me a murder. Both the fixed star Hoedus and the fixed star Bellatrix are hanging around Mars in this chart and these stars often show a sexual assault. It is very possible that Cheryl was raped before she was killed. Another indicator is the exact conjunction between Pluto and the fixed star Unukalhai, which describes drugs. I think all the pointers describe this assailant as a criminal and drug abuser who was after Cheryls' money.

It is obvious, however, that even if she was killed in a public park bathroom, she was not left there. She would have been found long before now if she had been left in this very public location. However, if there are closed parks in the area that have not be serviced or maintained in many years, a search might be done there just to be sure. In any forensic chart, when the death has been established, you then use Saturn as the marker for the body. This is regardless of whether Saturn has been a marker in the chart so far or whether or not Saturn is part of the death pattern. It is just always used a lead in the search for the bones.

Notice how close Saturn is to the node in the third house. The third house shows us the body in transport, being carried or driven somewhere. The close proximity to the node tells me that they took her to a place they were familiar with. This would be a place they had "planned on", which can also indicate the possibility that they had used the place before. This, in turn, can give indication that they had killed and dumped other victims as well. Saturn in Aquarius right away gives us a place that has been recently dug up. So is this a cemetery? Is this a place where construction is under way? Or had other graves been dug not long in the past? Saturn in Aquarius describes an area that is sandy and desert like with gravel and dirt. This area would have places that had been dug up or turned for some reason. The entire area would be situated near an airstrip, commercial or private and should have a radio tower somewhere nearby. If there are woods nearby (and there may be) this would be a dry wooded thicket with sandy ground and little undergrowth. Tall, spindly trees with sparse foliage.

The north node in Capricorn (as well as Saturn being disposed of by Uranus in Capricorn) indicates that this is where there are more graves. This is a graveyard of sorts. Other victims may be found in this same place. In looking for the area, you should travel south of the area where Cheryl was first abducted.

In an attempt to describe her killer, I will again mix up traditional readings with my own interpretations and hope I get something right. This person is defined by Venus in Aries. As I already said, this is a criminal, a drug abuser, a person who lives a life of crime. Venus in Aries also describes someone who is on the run, hiding, living in hiding from the law. He may very well have a secret hideout in the area. This man is going to be small and thin. He would have a nice head of hair, soft and thick and possibly wavy. He is going to have long, sweeping eyebrows that are prominent on his face and expressive eyes. He has a dreamy or "drugged up" appearance, always sort of "spacey" and "out of it". He has a short, straight nose and thick, bow shaped lips. Florid color in the lips and face; a tendency to blush. Dimple in the cheek or chin and a scar somewhere on the cheek or forehead. This is a shameless man with a weakness for self indulgence and his addiction controls him. Normally timid, he is aggressive in his quest for money and drugs and has done this before. He feels desperate a lot of the time and is capable of disgraceful actions and habits. Although he knows what he does is wrong, he is out of control; a "desperado". He is most likely already in jail for another crime.

It is suspected that the cases of several other convenience store clerks that are either missing or have been found murdered are linked to this case. Although I cannot tell if this is the case from a single chart for a single event, I would guess that this is possible. The charts do appear to show other women or victims buried at this same site. In particular, the Angela Hammond case has been linked to this one. Hammond was abducted from another city in Missouri so the link is a strong one. You can see my analysis of the Hammond case HERE
