Brookelyn Farthing

Stepfather Says Missing Teen Texted Friend: 'I'm scared'

From The Huffington Post:

A Kentucky teenager who vanished after a suspicious house fire sent a string of texts to friends just before she disappeared, her stepfather told The Huffington Post on Tuesday.

Brookelyn Farthing, 18, was last seen June 22 at a home in Berea, a small city located about 40 miles south of Lexington. The morning Farthing disappeared, the home she was visiting was damaged by a small fire.

Prior to the fire, Farthing sent several text messages, including one that said, "I'm scared," according to her stepfather, Randall Walker.

"She started texting people to pick her up and give her a ride home," Walker told HuffPost. "She was texting her ex-fiance -- they were separated but still friends. He was at work and she texted him that he needed to come get her when he got off work. At 4:26 that morning, she texted him to hurry 'because I'm scared.'"

According to Walker, investigators told him that hours before the text message was sent, Farthing attended a party with a friend. She was supposed to ride home with that friend after the party, but the two got into an argument and the girl left without her.

"Another friend of hers was drunk and needed to get home," Walker said. "A gentleman known to Brookelyn's ex-fiance was at the party and he offered her his vehicle to give the boy a ride home."

From what information Walker has been able to gather from investigators, Farthing purportedly drove her friend home in the man's vehicle and then had to bring the vehicle back to the man's house -- a home with no electricity that was in foreclosure.

It was not long after Farthing arrived at the man's home that she started to text friends about needing a ride.

"There was another text was sent from Brookelyn's phone at 5:30 a.m., an hour before her ex-fiance was to get off work and come pick her up. The text said, 'Never mind, I'm okay. I'm going to a party in Rockcastle County,'" Walker said.

"I do not believe that was a text from Brookelyn," he continued. "I think something had already happened between the time she sent the text [in which she said] that she was afraid and that text. She had plans for the next day and would not have gone off to another party," Walker said.

At about 7 a.m., the owner of the home Farthing was visiting called the fire department and reported a blaze inside the home. The fire was extinguished before it got out of control, leaving a burned couch and a hole in the floor, police said.

Farthing was not inside the home when firefighters arrived on the scene. The homeowner allegedly told police that he had to leave and take care of a horse that morning. According to police, he said that, when he left, Farthing was sitting on the couch smoking. When he returned, she was gone and the couch was on fire.

Walker said something about the fire doesn't add up. "I don't believe Brookelyn set that fire," he said. "I think the fire was set to throw people off."

Trooper Robert Purdy, a Kentucky State Police spokesperson, said the fire plays a key role in the investigation into Farthing's disappearance, but did not elaborate. "The fire is a pretty integral detail in that investigation," he told HuffPost.

Aside from the texts and the fire, Walker said he finds it disturbing that some of his stepdaughter's belongings were found inside the home.

"She would dress up and she always made sure she had everything with her. She wanted to look good at all times," he said. "When Brookelyn went missing from that house, all her stuff -- her cowboy boots and her dress clothes -- was still there. Everything except her phone and the clothes she had on. She would not have left her clothes behind, so I know something happened there at that house."

The owner of the home where Farthing was last seen did not respond to a request for comment from HuffPost.

Authorities contacted Farthing's cell phone carrier and determined it last pinged on a tower in nearby Blue Lick, about 30 miles from where Farthing was last seen. The phone has not been turned on since.

According to the state police, authorities have searched more than 16,000 acres in three counties for the missing teen. They have scoured the land with cadaver dogs and searched bodies of water. Investigators have not said what, if anything, they have found during the searches.

"What we're doing is, we're following up on any and all possible leads," Purdy said. "Things are coming in every single day. It's a widespread search. Everywhere that we had information she could be has been searched already."

Authorities have not named any suspects or persons of interest in Farthing's disappearance.

"I can't release [the names of] any particular suspect or individual," Purdy said. "We've followed up on any and all individuals that could have been involved."

Walker, who Farthing has known since she was 4, said her family had to mark the first milestone without her Monday -- her 19th birthday.

"It's hard for the whole family," he said. "She is an outgoing girl -- an outdoors[y] girl and a tomboy in a way. She goes fishing and hunting, but when she wants to be a girlie girl, she is."

"We have no idea what has happened at all. I just know [authorities] are chasing leads and have an idea of what happened, but will not tell the family. I perceive that as something bad."

Brookelyn Farthing is described as a white female, between 5 feet 1 inch and 5 feet 3 inches tall, with blonde hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a gray Madison County FFA T-shirt and denim shorts.

"We hold out hope that she's coming back and we're going to continue to hold out hope until we find out otherwise. Please keep us in your prayers," said Walker.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police at (859) 623-2404.


I saw this online and wondered why the media wasn't talking about it on national news. After all, this is a beautiful white girl with a beautiful name, who went missing after texting her boyfriend, "I'm scared". It has all the properties of a great horror movie so you would think the media would be stumbling all over it. But apparently not because the first I heard of it was on the Huff Post. Above, you can read the post they published.

I found the story rather creepy and compelling so I wanted to go ahead and chart it. And when I did, I found a familiar pattern.

I drew up the first chart for the time of her earlier text to her boyfriend. It is assumed that this text actually came from her but not so much for the later text, which I will discuss farther into the analysis. The charts for 4:26 am show the first house ruler, Mercury, in the third house of communication. This placement often shows phone calls and messages as well as movement in vehicles or on local streets. Mercury is disposed of by the Moon in the seventh house. Dispositions show the purpose or intent of the subject and the seventh house shows partners, such as boyfriends. We know she is texting (third house) her boyfriend (seventh house) so the charts do dovetail with the known facts. This is important in determining viability. The person she is talking to or engaging with is her boyfriend, indicated by Jupiter in Gemini but you should also note that Jupiter is in the last degree of Gemini and that the seventh house cusp is late in Sagittarius and that both positions are about to change. What this tells us is that she may be talking to her boyfriend at that moment but that was about to change. Someone else was about to enter the picture. We will see who that person is shortly when the house cusps shift.

There are some creepy omens in this chart that portend what was coming. She is in someone else's home, a home that was dark and empty and foreclosed on, according to reports. Notice Neptune in the tenth house. The tenth house shows us the homes we are in when they belong to someone else (fourth from the seventh) and Neptune is a secret, something dark and mysterious. It seems to be a fact that little is known about this house even now. Uranus rules the tenth house as well and it is placed in the eleventh house in the sign Aries. Aries is a fire sign and we know the house was set on fire. I will discuss more about the eleventh house position later in the analysis. But the most important omen, for me, in this chart is the placement of Mars in the first house. This indicates an attack on this girl, somehow she is struck or assaulted. This is described even more clearly in the next chart.

The Moon is always the co ruler of the subject and in this chart you can see it right at the descendant. At the same time, Mars is crossing the ascendant and is in close opposition (8 minutes) to the Moon. She is attacked out of the blue and she resists (the opposition), possibly even fighting him off. Mercury rules the first, showing her to be young and probably younger than her assailant. His marker, Jupiter, describes somebody larger and possibly athletic or, at least, physically fit or strong. Mars is also conjoined to Jupiter in the first house, showing us that she was attacked by one person and definitely the person defined by the seventh house. The seventh house shows us the resident or owner of the home in question (the tenth is the fourth from the seventh) so the police should be looking for the owner or a squatter. Notice that Pluto is in the eighth house, often a marker for murder, but, in this chart, it has no power. In fact, over the next few charts I do not find a single marker for death and no death pattern. There is a very good possibility that Brookelyn is still alive.

The most interesting aspect I see in this chart for 5 am is the placement of Jupiter under the Sun's beams with the Sun ruling the fourth. This makes me think that this person who assaulted Brookelyn as also in some sort of danger.. the least of which might be the leading of a dangerous lifestyle or fraternizing with criminals. Another thought that comes to mind is that this person was in danger from the police and was hiding in this abandoned home to keep from going to jail.

This is the chart for the second text she supposedly sent but that no one believes she did. In other words, it is believed that someone else sent the text. We can assume her assailant used her phone and went through her phone book and then sent the text to her father to throw everyone off. Mars is just past the ascendant in the twelfth house which often reads as a head blow to me, somebody is assaulted and then they are knocked out. Seventh house ruler Jupiter in the first shows that some one was, indeed, "in her face" and the opposition from Jupiter to the co ruler Moon in the sixth shows us that the intention was for Brookelyn to disappear. She was to "never be found" in this agenda. The sixth house also shows sickness of some sort and can imply mental illness. In considering the source of the second text, please notice that Jupiter is closely conjoined the Sun and the Sun is ruling the third house of communication. The Sun also rules the fourth house and is disposed of by the Moon in the sixth. I am thinking now that the house was chosen for a reason, a place where she could "disappear" and that this was her assailants choice. And in this same chart we see Pluto suddenly becoming angular in the seventh house and disposed of by Saturn, which is now moving into the fifth. This looks like a sexual assault. At the very least, there was sexual attraction and at the best, romantic intentions. But I do not like Saturn ruling the eighth and moving into the fifth. Too many energies here imply sexual assault and death.

I think the girl was raped on the couch and the couch was torched to hide evidence. She was then removed from the house but I believe she was still alive. That is, if the charts are to be believed.

And the whole time, in every chart, the first house ruler remains in the second house of money and personal property. Mercury is conjoined Venus in Cancer so I am asking if there was something she was given that had romantic overtones and that involved family history? Such as a ring belonging to someone's mother. It is very likely that she was in possession of something sentimental that had value for her assaulter, who was a man who either found her attractive or chose her for some purpose. Node in the sixth house disposed of by Mars shows planning that involved this girls disappearance. In this chart, the node is also disposed of by Pluto, showing perhaps that the sexual assault was a part of the plan as well.

The fire was reported at 7 am. The chart for 7 am shows Uranus in Aries now in the tenth house. Nothing describes a fire more clearly than Uranus in Aries. The seventh house ruler is now Saturn with Saturn in the fifth. Pluto is right at the descendant. He not only believes that he loves this girl but he is going to take control over her and make her love him back. Seriously. Even if it involves physical violence or confinement (Pluto in Capricorn). Node in the fifth shows us long term romantic planning and with the Moon in the sixth, he would make sure she will never be found. Sagittarius implies long distance travel, in particular airplanes and trucks that travel over interstates. Saturn and the node are also disposed of by Mars in the twelfth house, which tells us again that he will carry all of this on in secret, he will do whatever he has to in order to keep this girl in hiding. He will even hide himself and give up whatever life he had. The twelfth house also implies that he has been confined himself in the past, either for mental illness or in a prison. The planets in Gemini are ruled by Mercury so it may well be that this person is mentally ill. Neptune in Pisces in the ninth house also indicates water and water vehicles such as boats. It is very likely that this person either owned or lived on a boat, had access to a boat, stole or commandeered someone's boat and took this girl off in the boat for a part of the trip. If there are open waterways with legs that go to other waterways, such as a river that crosses several states, then this passageway should be considered. Neptune indicates it would be easy for them to hide and not be seen if they traveled on a boat.

The chart for 7 am clearly tells us that by the time the fire was reported Brookelyn was long gone and would not be found. This chart tells us that she was taken on a highway or large waterway (Neptune rules the tenth from the ninth) to the northwest of the area (Pisces on the tenth) and in either a truck (Moon in Sagittarius) or a boat (Neptune in Pisces). Uranus in the tenth also describes a place of confinement such as a prison or mental institution, a work camp, a hideout and/or some place unusual and unexpected. He is no doubt confining her in some manner and possibly has an understanding of confinement from a personal history (in an institution). If there is a prison or mental institution in the area or a nearby area, northwest of the city perhaps, that is currently under construction or renovation, then look for marinas or truckstops in that area. Mercury rules the fourth and this would describe the subjects home. Mercury is in Cancer so this takes us back to water, waterways, boats and homes near the water. Movable homes most likely so more like trailers and RVs rather than brick and mortar homes which would include campgrounds and parks along the water as well. With the Moon in Sagittarius I would tend to think of campgrounds and parks as possible. Any place near the water (established Cancer and Pisces) where people may go to hunt game (Sagittarius). A lot of these charts end up in the woods and in wooded areas and many describe parks and campgrounds, which makes sense really. Most criminals who would abduct or kidnap someone would probably prefer to remain on the move.

Sometime between 8 and 9 am Uranus leaves the tenth house. I understand the fire was small and was put out within that hour. In this chart Uranus now rules the eighth house and Neptune resides in the eighth, showing that the fire was set to hide some sort of criminal activity, such as sex or death. There is no death pattern or other marker for death and the Moon is in the fifth house so my guess is still what I surmised a while back, that the fire was set to cover up the evidence of rape. There may have been body fluids on that couch that went up in smoke. If this man had been arrested and incarcerated in the past for rape he would know all too well that semen makes great DNA. But in the chart for 8 am the fire is almost out and the assailant is long gone with his victim. In fact, the seventh house ruler at 8 am is Saturn and it is in the fourth house. This, along with the Moon in the fifth, tells me that they have gone to some residence. Libra on the fourth house cusp is an air sign and indicates movable housing, such as mobile homes, trailers, boats or RVs and the like. Venus, which rules the fourth, is in Cancer, again leading me towards a boat. Saturn in the fourth house is in Scorpio and is disposed of by Mars, now in the eleventh. Mars is directly opposite the Moon in the fifth so it looks like forced sex is still going on; she is resisting but he is persistent. The eleventh - fifth house axis defines close relationships and mostly those that involve sexual relations. Mercury and Venus are in the first house so other young girls are in this same place, keeping company with Brookelyn.

Unlike many other sexual assault charts I have seen, this one no longer contains any references to money. Most often, it seems, that girls are taken for sexual slavery or for porn. These markers are not in this chart. I would expect them to be, I suppose, upon seeing markers for other girls in the same place. Men usually keep a stable of abducted girls for that purpose but this chart is somewhat different. This chart appears to define a pedophile or pervert who lives in a fantasy about romance and love. He imagines himself involved with the girls and that love is shared among them. I saw this in an earlier chart, where it seemed he would force the relationship if he had to and brow beat Brookelyn into "loving" him. I think this is the case. All of the charts seem to point to sex with romance rather than sex for money.

I will say this much. If I were searching for Brookelyn, I would start by following major highways in the first search, traveling northwest and looking for trailer parks, campgrounds, fish camps, RV parks, public parks and areas where people hunt and fish and I would pass around pictures of the girl. On the second search, I would follow major waterways traveling northeast and look for the same sorts of places and distribute her picture. It might be a lot of work for someone but I would make every effort to do this if it were me. I'm just saying.

The man who took Brookelyn is somehow connected with the man who owned the home. It was either the same person or the abductor was someone who knew the homeowner. The home may have been abandoned but this was either the owner or someone who knew about the home because he was either squatting there at that time or had access to the home. Because of this, the man who loaned her the car should be investigated. If he is cleared, then anyone he knew who either knew about the empty home or had access to it should also be investigated. I am going to say right now that I trust the police and I am sure that they have considered these leads. If not, then someone should prod them to do so.

The man here is defined by the markers present in the 8 am chart. This chart shows the abduction of Brookelyn and the taking of her to a remote location. This man is defined then by Saturn in Scorpio. He is older than Brookelyn and obsessive, possessive and jealous in nature. The exact trine from Saturn to Neptune shows someone who lives in a fantasy world, where women fall in love with him because of sex. His sexual prowess, in his own mind, is so great they eventually cannot resist him. He surrounds himself with younger girls (Mars in Gemini) and likes to act like their father and teacher (Pluto in Capricorn). He imagines himself as a guide and guru, a man who molds women into romantic ideals. Sex is powerful in this man's motivations. He imagines sex as the vehicle by which he captures and controls these young girls.

In appearance, he is very serious and dark. He always seems to be immersed in his own thoughts. He rarely smiles. He is secretive and shadowy in nature, his personality is hard to penetrate. When he does speak, he does so with gravitas, as if everything he might say would have tremendous meaning and importance. He is inwardly conceited and egotistical, believing himself to have a private superiority over almost everybody, mostly because he fancies himself a sexual powerhouse. But this is his private life and he does not share his feelings so this would go unspoken. In fact, most people would never imagine that he was a sex addict; he seems cold and distant and unflappable.

His features might be dark, in hair and eyebrows, but the eyes might be blue. Dark blue, perhaps. He would have pale, light skin with freckling and translucence. He would be thin and craggy to some degree, there will not be anything soft or plump about him. His work might be the kind that most people would not do, such as working in the sewer, with underground pipes, drainage and other plumbing work or the kind of work that involves cracking up rocks and stones, digging into dry and cracked earth, mortar blasting or chopping wood. I think a perfect blend of the energies would be something like installing sewer pipes in new construction, where digging has to go on but the work also involves sewage and water. These same energies may incline this man to bury the girls when he is done with them and there may be a graveyard somewhere with these girls. He has no doubt been doing this for years and has many victims. But I see nothing in these charts to indicate that Brookelyn is dead, at least not within the first 24 hours after she was taken.

Michelle Parker

Young Woman Disappears After TV Show

From The Huffington Post :

Police in Florida are trying to locate Michelle Parker, a 33-year-old missing mother of three from Orlando who has been missing since last month. Dale Smith, the father of Parker’s twin 3 year olds, has been named the prime suspect in the case over her disappearance.

The following timeline begins on Nov. 17, the day Parker disappeared without a trace.

NOTE: This timeline will continue to be updated and amended as more information becomes available. Please send tips.

2 p.m. – An episode of “The People’s Court” with Parker and her ex-fiance, Dale Smith, aired on television. The couple was in dispute over a $5,000 engagement ring that was lost after Parker threw it at Smith in anger. During the program, which had been taped in August, Parker alleged that Smith has a drug and alcohol problem and had been violent with her in the past.

“He gets pretty malicious and vindictive,” Parker said. After hearing both sides Judge Marilyn Milian ruled the couple should split the cost of the ring and ordered Parker to pay $2,500 for her half.

According to Parker’s mother, Yvonne Stewart, her daughter regretted taping the show.

“It was the most humiliating experience of my life,” Stewart told ABC News her daughter said of the experience. “I don’t even ever want to see it. I wish I had never gone.”

2:30 p.m. – Parker visited with family members at her mother’s salon in in Oviedo, Florida.

3:15 p.m. –Mitchell and Parker exchanged flirty text messages.

3:18 p.m. – A security camera records Parker dropping her twin 3 year olds off at Smith’s condo on Goldenrod Road. Due to the angle of the camera, her departure time was not recorded.

3:30 p.m. – Parker’s 11-year-old son arrived home from school. Shortly thereafter he called his grandmother, Stewart, and notified her that his mom was not there.

4:26 p.m. – Parker’s brother, Dustin Erickson, sent her a text message and asked her where she was. Moments later, Erickson received a reply with the single word “Waterford,” a possible reference to a nearby area.

4:30 p.m. – According to Smith’s attorney, Mark NeJame, his client went to visit his parents with his children.

6:53 p.m. –Parker’s sister was unsuccessful in her attempts to reach her by phone.

7:20 p.m. – Parker’s sister reported her missing to police.

8 p.m. – Parker failed to show up for her job at The Barn restaurant in Sanford. At about the same time her cell phone stopped transmitting a signal to a tower near Belle Isle.

November 18 – Parker’s 2008 black Hummer H3 was found in a parking lot on the west side of Orlando. Decals for Parker’s mobile tanning business had been removed from the windows.

Police conducted a search of Smith’s condominium. What — if anything — of interest was found is not yet known.

Parker’s mother told WFTV she believed her daughter was the victim of a random crime, possibly a car jacking.

“If anybody has her and you’re holding her hostage, please let her go,” Yvonne Stewart told the news station. “Let her come home so she can raise her babies.”

November 19 – The Florida Department of Children and Families opened an investigation into the children’s welfare “after allegations of past domestic violence were reported,” the agency said in a statement. “This report was generated after the mother was reported missing to authorities.”

November 22 – The Orlando Police Department announced they had no new leads.

November 26 – Orlando police served a search warrant on Smith’s parents’ home on Rose Boulevard in Orlando. Witnesses told ABC News a SWAT team served the search warrant.

“Roughly 12 guys piled out, banged on the door, yelled ‘search warrant, search warrant,’ and basically took everybody out of the house,” said neighbor Don Partin, according to ABC News. “They took everybody out, sat them in the yard and then the cops went in, and the crime lab went in and pretty much everybody from all departments showed up.”

According to, police said they found nothing of significance.

November 28 – Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney announced Smith as the primary suspect in Parker’s disappearance.

“We had to look at every aspect in the case before we could come out publicly and state that Mr. Smith is our primary focus,” Rooney said.

Rooney did not elaborate on why he was considered a suspect, but did say Smith had refused to take a polygraph test.

Smith’s checkered past, however, may play a role in why police suspect he could be involved in Parker’s disappearance. He was convicted of battery in the 1990s, serving 10 days in jail. His second wife, Shannon, died of an accidental drug overdose. In 1996 he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, and he was court martialed in 2001. Smith was subsequently dishonorably discharged in 2003. More recently, in 2009, Parker attempted to obtain a restraining order against Smith, but the request was denied due to lack of evidence.

Parker’s mother pleaded with Smith to cooperate with police. “Dale, if you had cooperated with the police and took a polygraph test when they asked you, you could have avoided a lot of stress,” Stewart told reporters. “Our family needs to have Michelle home. We need to heal.”

November 29 – The Florida Department of Children and Families claimed Smith was a “significant future risk” to his children and placed the twins in protective custody.

Dale Smith Legal Documents

NeJame said the timeline in the case and the suggestion that his client may have been involved does not add up.

“Get in your cars, and run that track, and see if you can do it … and in between, you’ve killed and gotten rid of — disposed of a body … where nobody can find it,” NeJame said. “There’s no marks, no defensive wounds, no scrapes, no blood, no nothing suggesting a struggle or a death.”

He added, “You then, in an hour and 12 minutes, go from one side of town to the other, you then drop off your vehicle, you get in your vehicle and you drive to your father’s house. In an hour and 12 minutes. It’s not physically possible.”

November 30 – Smith allegedly knocked down a TV news photographer on his way into juvenile court for an emergency custody hearing. The photographer, who suffered scrapes, cuts and elbow pain, told WESH News he planned to go to a doctor to assess his injuries before deciding whether to press charges.

An Orlando juvenile court judge dismissed a petition filed by the Florida Department of Children and Families. The judge said the agency failed to present sufficient probable cause for him to sign a petition on custody. The judge ruled in favor of Smith, pending any future developments in his ex-fiance’s disappearance.

Authorities searched an area near Lake Ellenor in south Orange County for Parker. The location is five miles from Smith’s parents’ house and close to the cell tower that logged Parker’s last transmission. Dive teams and search crews from the Orlando Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office participated.

The Orlando Police Department announced a body found near a south Georgia Interstate 95 on-ramp was not Parker.

December 1 – Texas EquuSearch’s founder Tim Miller arrived in Orlando to meet with law enforcement.

December 2 – Authorities searched a fenced retention pond near Smith’s home. Nothing of interest was found.

December 6 – Smith’s mother, Tamara Smith, was questioned under oath at the Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s Office.

December 7 – Smith’s father, Dale Smith Sr., was questioned under oath at the Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s Office.

Parker’s family announced her missing iPhone 4 has been found, along with the pink, black and white case that she kept it in. According to the missing woman’s mother, family members were asked to identify the cell phone at the Orlando Police Department. Police did not say where the cell phone was located.


The cops have done extensive work on this case and it has gone on for quite some time. Right now, it has gone cold. I wanted to do this case for a very long time but could never find a useful timeline. They just kept saying she was last seen on TV. For me, that could be the time when the show played or the time when they recorded it... or did they record it live? Anyways, no one knew what time that actually was! So I was left with no real time to work with. But recently a reader messaged me on Facebook and sent me a link. This had the time she was last seen on video, dropping off her kid at Smith's house. I fully expected when I did the charts to find that he had killed her in that apartment and then buried her somewhere. But boy was a surprised when I saw what the charts were saying! And I think you will be, too.

The timeline says that she was last seen on video at around 3:18 on the 17th. I ran a chart for 3:20 just to see what happens after she is recorded. Take a look at this chart. Right away, you see the first house ruler in the second and the second house ruler in the first. This has financial overtones. Notice that the tenth house, which shows the next place she will be, is ruled by Pluto in the eleventh. The fourth house, which shows the place she is at right at that moment, is ruled by Venus which is conjoined Mercury in the ninth. Mercury rules the fifth so this shows us that she is with her children. Gemini is a marker for twins and with the Moon also in Gemini in the fifth house of children, we not only see that she has twins but that she is with the twins at this hour. This all dovetails with the reported facts, that she was dropping off her kids with their father. The tenth house ruler (the father) is Pluto and Mars. Pluto in the eleventh tells us that there was a divorce or some other sort of breakup. The eleventh house documents a friendship and romantic history but one that has ended. Pluto is a violent planet so it shows disagreement or perhaps even acrimony between these two. The secondary ruler, Mars, is at the seventh house cusp, again describing an angry breakup. They were both especially angry about something at this time and since we know they had a financial dispute that was aired on TV (second house markers) then perhaps this was it.

However, Dale Smith is not the person she is going to meet next. At this point, she is at his home to leave the kids and was back out the door. Although the cameras do not show her leaving his home, she was NOT murdered there. They probably argued a little, with her marker in the second house and his at the descendant it would seem that she was not happy about the results of the court decision. Uranus is disposed of by Mars so she was ready to argue with him at that time. She was more than a little pissed off. But I do believe she left that house alive. In the next few minutes, specifically around 3:45 pm by the charts, she left and went about her business. You can see the tenth house ruler (her next destination) is now Jupiter, which is in the third house. Jupiter in Taurus describes a big, sturdy, expensive luxury vehicle which describes her Hummer. Jupiter is disposed of by Venus conjoined Mercury in the ninth, showing her in the Hummer out on a highway. Moon in Gemini is disposed of by Mercury so she had errands to run. Moon in the fifth might mean she had things to do for the kids. Second house ruler Neptune is in the first, closing in on the cusp, showing money to be on her mind. In fact, the first house ruler is in the second, as well, which makes me think she was headed to the bank. At the same time, the third house ruler, Venus, is opposed to Jupiter in the third, so something was about to happen with the vehicle.

The whole thing comes into focus for me when I study the seventh house. That ruler, the Sun, is in the eighth house. This is a dead on, no doubt about it, never fail reference to a desperate criminal. Sun conjoined Saturn shows a hard scrabble, difficult existence that creates a bitter, hateful personality and the eighth house puts this person outside the law. Both of these planets were disposed of by Venus, which, as we know already, rules the third house. This shows focus on the Hummer. I believe Michelle Parker was car jacked at a bank by a desperate criminal. This is what the charts are saying. In black and white. So my conviction that she had been killed by Dale Smith just got smashed. Her ex fiance had nothing to do with this abduction but some desperate, dangerous criminal did.

The chart for 4:30 pm, just about one hour later, has a death pattern. Apparently she was murdered right away after the Hummer was commandeered. Look closely at the chart and I will show you the pattern. First of all, the first house ruler has now become Neptune and it has moved into the twelfth house. The Moon in Gemini is now in the fourth house and is disposed of by Mercury in the eighth. The eighth house ruler, Venus, is in the eighth. Both the eighth and fourth house rulers are disposed of by Pluto, which is in the tenth house. This while Pluto in Capricorn is disposed of by Saturn in the eighth. Since Saturn represents the dead body then Pluto is the means by which the body died. Pluto in Capricorn, in my humble opinion, seems to describe a beating. Pluto is violence and Capricorn is often a blunt object, perhaps made of wood such a baseball bat? The node is right at the tenth house in Sagittarius. Sagittarius often describes sporting equipment, such as the baseball bat. The node says that this was part of the plan and maybe had been used before. Twelfth house ruler, Uranus in Aries, in the first house tells another story. This looks like she was shot in the head. Uranus in Aries can describe a bullet flying through the air and the first house always depicts the head. However, Aries can be violent and physical and can describe a beating, as well. Especially with Uranus, which describes unusual items and a gun would not be unusual. Aries rules the head, so no matter what, she was shot or struck in the head. Uranus is also disposed of by Mars in Leo, which can show physical violence, too. And do not forget that Mercury is now the seventh house ruler and it is placed in the eighth house, showing consistency. She is still with this dangerous criminal when she dies.

The tenth house ruler being Sagittarius and both the node and the tenth house being disposed of by Jupiter in Taurus in the second house, this was a robbery of some sort. I believe it was a car jacking but this chart also shows valuables or things of value. Of course, the Hummer is an expensive vehicle and is motivation enough for the right criminal but I think she also was wearing jewelry that had some value and maybe had just gotten money out of the bank that was taken as well. The Moon is disposed of by Mercury and Mercury is conjoined to the third house ruler in the eighth house. I believe they killed her for her Hummer. Mercury is also the seventh house ruler and both Mercury and Venus are disposed of by Mars in the sixth house. This person does this sort of thing for a living. He is a career criminal. Mercury in Scorpio is his marker at the time of the abduction so he is young but he is vile. He lives a truly seedy lifestyle, under the radar, in a really nasty place. Scorpio and Pluto describe dark, secretive places that are dirty and possibly infested with insects. Pluto in Capricorn can describe places low to the ground, without floors but set only on dirt, falling apart. Sagittarius on the tenth house cusp gives us a place in the woods, very rustic, hard scrabble. Mercury in Scorpio also describes somebody devious and scheming. Mercury, by itself, gives theives, hustlers and con men. Scorpio gives dark features but with possibly blue or light eyes. Mercury gives us someone young and small in stature; wiry and flexible. Scorpio slows the body down so this person is not athletic although they can scramble if they need to. Strong survival instincts but a reclusive, difficult personality. No one knows this person well. He spends a lot of time alone.

Now, this chart is the one that shows where he dumped her. I am not sure, at this point, if this person worked alone or had a helper. Mercury often implies two but Scorpio is a loner. So I cannot say for sure if there was any more than one person involved in this. It seems like it would have required two and perhaps he did have help but maybe only with the body dump. I am just not sure. However, in this chart you can see the grand trine between the Moon, Neptune and Saturn. Since Saturn is the body and the Moon is her co ruler, this trine is important. It is in air signs and two planets are angular. This tells me that her body was tossed from an overpass or a bridge. She was up in the air when she was discarded and probably remains up in the air. I think she might have ended up in a tree in an area under or around a bridge or overpass. Saturn is conjoined the Sun so that place gets a lot of sunlight and heat during the day so she decomposed rapidly. Both planets are in Libra so she is hanging from some high place or is perched on something that stands above the ground. Moon in Gemini hints at two things so I am thinking brush or high overgrown with lots of branches or stems. But she is no doubt up in the air somehow. There are no mountains in Florida but there are a lot of tall trees and deep ravines under bridges. She is not in the water. She is not buried. She is out in the open under a bridge or overpass in thick brush that stands high off the ground. Also, Neptune in Aquarius in the twelfth house is retrograde so she is well covered and will be very hard to find. It will take years to find her. Aquarius shows that she is stuck somewhere and will not be moved by the elements. Neptune shows she is very well concealed. And the retrograde motion of Neptune tells me it will be many years before she is found.

Sylvia Newman Gregory

Woman Disappears From Her Home


Cold Case # 1972-6573
Victim: Sylvia Newman Gregory
Age: 22 / White Female
Location: Highway 160, near Fort Mill, SC, one and a half miles below the city limit sign.
Date of Homicide: 04-18-1972


The victim is a female who was 22 years old at the time she was kidnapped (date of birth 7/28/49). She was 5'7", approximately 135 pounds, light brown shoulder length hair and brown eyes. The victim was home alone at the time of her abduction. When her husband arrived home he found the door on their trailer ajar and could not locate the victim. There were signs of a struggle. He then reported her disappearance to the police. Sylvia was apparently abducted from her trailer at approximately 2200 hours on 4/18/72. Her remains were located on 10/10/73 in woods off of Highway 160 west of Fort Mill, SC. Anyone with information regarding this homicide is asked to contact the Cold Case Homicide Squad.

This is about all I could find online about this case. In other newspaper articles they make references to the body find and that she had been shot in the head with a bullet. I cannot copy these pages but you can read them here:,405023,437257

I have been snooping around various county websites for cold cases. I did not want to end up doing a whole bunch from my area or from any particular area and wanted a national source. This was one of the cases that stood out to me. Something about her picture.. and memories from the 1970s. I felt really bad that this girl was only 22 years old and no one has yet been charged with her murder. So I drew charts for the time she was presumed abducted, for the time when her body was found and for the days and hours in between. I enjoy doing really old cold cases because it puts them back on the web, with a new slant, but it also allows me to study a variety of events with astrology charts.

It has been stated that she was assumed to be abducted around 10 pm that evening. I wanted to start a half hour before that time to see what was going on. And this first chart has a lot to show me. You can see that the seventh house ruler (the person she is "about to meet" is Mercury and that Mercury is in the fourth house (which describes her home). So, from this, we can assume he is already in her home at 9:30 pm. But notice that the fourth house ruler is Neptune and that Neptune is in the twelfth house. This shows something in that home that Syvlia could not see. Something was hidden from view and it's my guess it's this visitor. He is hiding in the home as early as 9:30 that evening and she did not see him right away. He must have caught her by surprise.

Mercury is trine Neptune so things are going to go his way. Neptune is the darkness there that keeps her from seeing him at first and this is how Neptune assisted him. Jupiter rules the first house and so Jupiter is Sylvia's marker. Jupiter is also in the first house, showing her to be in "her own place" which translates into her home (or any other area she frequented). Jupiter is disposed of by Saturn, which is at the Descendant (the marker for her abductor). Saturn is exactly opposite Neptune in the twelfth so she would stumble upon him (caught by surprise as noted) and this may be what caused the struggle in the house. There were reports from her husband, who was the first to discover her missing, that the house showed signs of a struggle. Saturn is also exactly sextile to Mercury so, from this, we can assume she had seen this person before. In fact, Jupiter opposing the Moon (with the Moon dexter by a few degrees) tells me that she had contact with him in the days before her abduction. She did something she didn't ordinarily do, such as being kind or supportive to a stranger, and he saw this act of kindness as a come on (or a sign of weakness). He chose her at that moment for some reason but the idea that should would be sympathetic, passive or "easy" seems to stand out for me. The Moon is really strong in Cancer but Jupiter is in fall in Capricorn, so this thing she did (this act of kindness) may be viewed as being a great quality of a strong character by many of us but, to this man, it would also look like Sylvia was weak. Kindness is often misread. This is what this looks like to me. He misread her kindness as a weakness towards him; perhaps flirtatious.

So he saw her in the days prior to this abduction and somehow knew where she lived. Mercury in Aries is his marker and this is disposed of by Mars in Gemini with both planets in mutual reception. He found it easy to discover where she lived and also found it easy to enter the home. We know that her home was a trailer, which are notorious for being unsafe, and the fourth house ruler, Neptune was in Sagittarius. Sylvia and her husband had not been in the trailer long and they had plans to move on eventually, maybe even travel out of state. That's what Neptune in Sagittarius is saying. It may also be saying that they were new to the area, having moved there from somewhere far away. It also is a marker for travel. Although I have no idea what either Sylvia or her husband did for a living, it is possible it involved travel of some sort.

Getting back to the abduction, I have to note that the seventh house ruler, Mercury, is in Aries and is disposed of by Mars in Gemini in the seventh house. Mars, in turn, is conjoined to Venus. At the same time, the Moon in Cancer is in the eighth house and Mercury rules the tenth house with Pluto at the midheaven. This is striking. His purpose in being there (Mercury disposed of by Mars) was to "get" Sylvia. He was not there to rob or steal and this was not a random event. Mars being so close to Venus in this scenario makes a female (most likely the victim) a target of this man's intentions. As well, the Moon in Cancer in the eighth house is a strong indicator that he wanted her for sex or death or both. Pluto, a violent and chaotic force in forensic charts, is in the last few minutes of the sign Virgo. The presages a change in events and since Pluto is angular and high in the chart, I would say it was going to be chaotic. Also, the tenth house describes this man's home and with Pluto there, I would guess he had done violent things in his home previously and had intentions to do so again.

In the chart for 10 pm I see that Mercury rules the tenth house from the fourth house. This man lived in the same neighborhood as Sylvia and lived in the same type of housing. It appears he lives in a trailer. In the chart for 11 pm, notice how the seventh house ruler, Mercury, at that hour has moved out of the fourth and into the third. They are on the road at that point. But the third house is not a highway or an interstate, it is a neighborhood avenue. He did not take her far. Moon in the seventh house shows Sylvia to be in "his custody". And the real interesting pattern in this chart is the cluster in the sixth, including the tenth and fourth house rulers with Saturn, which disposes of Jupiter in the first. Venus and Mars are exactly conjoined (within 30 seconds) so this represents two people who live together and may be married. Saturn there as disposition for the first house ruler, shows Sylvia with these two people and the probability that she will never be seen again. These people are transients who move around alot and may have been in the armed services at some time or, at the least, come from military families. The sign Gemini reinforces that there are, in fact, two people, close to each other in some manner and that they move around a lot and are not settled. Uranus in Libra in the tenth house shows us an alternative lifestyle of some sort: swingers, people of the same sex, living together unmarried (in the 70s that was "alternative") or some other unusual set up. I would say, just from my own viewpoint, that it would be rather unusual for two people, married or otherwise, to kidnap a woman and bring her to their home, for any purpose.

Then it's the chart for 1 am where things become crystal clear. Notice how the tenth and fourth house placements have changed to Taurus and Scorpio but that their rulers remain the same, Venus and Mars. This is that same couple but now things have changed. Venus and Mars are together with Saturn, which now rules the first house, in the fifth house. They are having sex with Sylvia! They have made a threesome with her, most likely against her will. Swinging was a popular past time in the 1970s but I have only heard of a few instances where a woman was abducted and used by a couple. Notice the tenth house ruler, Pluto, in the eighth house? And that all of these planets, Venus, Mars and Saturn, are disposed of by Mercury in the second house. And, also, that Neptune is within 3 seconds of exact opposition to Saturn, which rules the first. This, altogether, looks like sex on film for money and a possible snuff film in the making. Snuff films were a big rage thing in the 70s, also. When you have all the players planets disposed of by one planet in the second house, it starts looking like money as a motive. But Pluto in the eighth adds violent death to the mix and Neptune opposing Sylvia's marker looks like her being recorded against her will. She was abducted and forced into sex with these people; all of it was put on film for money. But it wasn't just the sex they wanted to record. Pluto in the eighth is disposed of by the same planet in the second house, Mercury. Documentaton of death. That's what it looks like to me. And the dignified Moon in Cancer lingering in the sixth house does assure us of one thing: Sylvia will never be seen again.

Another thing that Neptune opposing Saturn tells me is that they drugged this girl. She was drugged and then murdered. And with all the planets in Gemini disposed of by Mercury in Aries, this fits a gunshot to the head. Gemini also describes projectiles, often more than one. The Moon in Cancer can indicate drowning. Cancer rules the death house at the time of the abduction and the Moon is in Cancer also in the death house. There is a good chance that when all is said and done, they dump what is left of her in the water.

The first house ruler enters the eighth house for the first time at 2 am and remains there for hours. Pluto remains with the first house ruler, Uranus, in the eighth house until around 3 am, earth time. This seems to be saying that the sex and violence went on for quite some time before she died. Or, as much as I hate to say it, the sex and violence went on after her death. One or the other or both. This was a horrific act, according to these charts, and there is no nice way to say it.

This chart for 3 am shows that Sylvia is dead, as the charts before it also seemed to say, but in this one, they move her body. Pluto has moved into the seventh house, showing a disagreement between the two about something. Saturn, which represents the body of the victim in death, is now in the third house. They have taken her out of the home, perhaps into a car. Saturn rules the twelfth, which sort of affirms the idea that she is dead, and is directly opposite Neptune in the ninth (separated by only 2 minutes). I am thinking they took her out to the garage. Neptune has no house rulership so it is not prominent in this placement except by the opposition. I think they knew they could not hide her in the garage and they knew they could not burn the body without drawing unwanted attention. So Neptune would not work for them at this point. The third house ruler is Venus and it's placed in the fourth house so they had a car at their disposal. Both Venus and Mars so close together in Gemini seems to indicate that they both shared one car, rather than having two cars. Venus also rules the eighth while Saturn rules the twelfth so they were going to use that car to dispose of her; take her to her resting place, so to speak. North node in the twelfth indicates two different ideas: that they have done this before with people they knew and/ or they take the body (or bodies) to the same place every time. Add to that the node disposed of by Uranus in the eighth with Uranus ruling the first house, this may even be a part of their lifestyle. They think of their marriage as "alternative". Also, second house ruler, the Sun, in the second house may be describing a business contact that buys their "product". Back then, hard core porn was fairly new (it was rare in the 1960s) and snuff films were on the rise. I remember how horrified most of us were when we realized that.

Moon in the fifth house in this chart again describes sexual activity and with the first house ruler, Uranus, in the eighth, this may include "unusual" sexual activity. The Moon is sinister to a square with Uranus and this shows me that most of their victims were not willing. They fought back. Perhaps this was part of the "fun"? It is interesting that the Moon is the strongest planet in this chart, which seems to give the victim more power than it seems she had. At the same time, the tenth house ruler, Jupiter, is the weakest in the chart, and this shows us their home was vulnerable. They could have been easily discovered if someone had gone into their home. The victims could have revealed this if they would have gotten away. And perhaps, over time, someone did reveal them and they have since been imprisoned for crimes of this nature and/ or executed. Pluto in the seventh house underscores a violent personality and it is unlikely they continued this sort of thing and did not get caught.

I also think the presence of Uranus in the eighth after Saturn has been moved into the third, shows the couple having sex after moving the body. Yuk.

Remember that Saturn becomes the victim after death. The first house then becomes the abductor(s) / killer(s). The seventh house represents anyone else who enters the picture or has influence over events. The victim is no longer moving so you follow the body wherever the murderer may take it. Since this chart is showing us the victim as dead, then Saturn is her marker at this time. Saturn is in Gemini in the third house. Uranus in the eighth disposed of by Venus in the fourth conjoined Mars shows us this couple still in the home while Saturn in the third, shows Sylvia's body to be outside the home. The cusp of the seventh house is involved in a grand trine with Neptune in the ninth and Mercury in the first. They are probably going to cremate the remains. Mercury in the first in Aries will determine when and where they do it. The opposition from Neptune to Saturn confirms that they cannot hide her there, in their home, or burn her body there. So, Aries describes an area where the ground has been disturbed (for any reason), a place with abandoned buildings and empty structures (of any kind) Mercury describes an area within walking or driving distance, in the same neighborhood, perhaps in an area where things are stored or kept. Could also be an area near a truck stop, a school (likely closed), a paper mill (operating or not), an empty parking lot or any closed or abandoned business such as a car lot, a bowling alley or playground (any lot where sports were played). Any of these types of locations in the local area (not far from Sylvia's home) would be where they took her body and burned it. Aries describes outside cooking stoves, grills or ovens and if you keep this in mind, you can narrow it down. A camping site not far from a truck stop would make perfect sense. Sometime between 4 and 5 am in the morning, they took her body to a location similar to those described and burned it. And, then, with the Moon so strong in Cancer, they took the ashes and tossed them out over the water.

The couple who abducted her are described by Venus and Mars in Gemini. These were the markers at the time of her abduction. This describes an "intellectual" type couple who enjoyed playing "games". They liked strategy sessions and planning out their "adventures". They liked to share partners and to "swing" with other people but I think they mostly would stick with women as victims and maybe have adventures with other couples, both women and men, but these did not involve rape and murder. Venus and Mars square Uranus in these charts tells us that this couple was "adventurous" and different in their makeup and needed excitement. It probably started with "swinging", which was big in the 1960s and 1970s. They probably watched porn, when it became widely available, and indulged in experimentation. Mercury in Aries here shows us that they got aggressive about their strong desires and started dreaming up schemes where they could exercise power and be "in control". Gemini is playful so at first this was probably just acted out. But Mercury in Aries trine Neptune is now telling us that drugs and alcohol have often been involved and imaginations got wilder over time.
