senerchia1It was September 3rd of 2006, when the body of 21 year old Noel Senerchia was found in a weeded area of the Royanton section of Norwalk, Connecticut.  The mother of three children from Bridgeport, Connecticut had been placed in a laundry bag.  Her remains had been placed in the water and her remains were so badly decomposed that a cause and manner of death were not determined.  It was noted that Senerchia who had issues with drugs did have cocaine in her system.  

While not declared a homicide, suspicion has always been focused on Senerchia’s then boyfriend at the time.  The boyfriend has been convicted of several crimes of a sexual nature as can be seen in this Norwalk Hour article.  https://www.thehour.com/norwalk/article/Woman-s-death-leads-to-child-porn-charges-8270834.php

He has refused to talk to police about Senerchia’s death.   Her family is hoping that someone knows something about her death and is willing to talk to the Norwalk Police Department at (203) 854-3011.

 

A Skull is Found and a Young Man is Identified but So Many Questions Persist.

 

shawnpatrickraymondIt was September of 1992, when a man operating a bulldozer noticed what he thought was a mushroom in a Michigan State Department Natural Resources Dredging site along the Clinton River in the Macomb County Harrison Township of Michigan.  Upon closer inspection, it was revealed to be a human skull.  No other human remains were found near the site.

In April of 2004, the identity of the individual was revealed after a forensic reconstruction was done and dental records matched with that of a missing person.  It was 19 year old Shawn Patrick Raymond of St. Clair County Clay township. He had been reported missing on July 3, 1983 after he was supposed to return from meeting with a bunch of friends while going to a bar in Detroit.   The recent high school graduate  worked at a restaurant in Algonac, Michigan and was looking to go Macomb Community College in a few months.   Raymond was last seen at a bar named Menjo’s, which was a gay bar.

No cause or manner of death was ever determined however, the case is being treated as a homicide investigation.  It is not publicly known if Raymond was targeted because of his sexuality.  In an online article on NBC News, Police have two suspects being looked at for Raymond’s death.

High School Student Vanishes on Spring Break Found Days Later Dead

susanjacquesSpring Break is a rite of passage for college students and high school students.  For many of these students, Fort Lauderdale in Florida has been a popular destination for decades.  For one teenager from Trumbull, Connecticut, she went down with six friends from St. Joseph’s High School and never came back alive.

It was April 18th, 1986 when 18 year old Susan Jacques flew to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to go on a ten day vacation.  According to sources, she was last seen alive at about 3:30 a.m. on April 26 by friends at the Mark 2100 Motor Hotel at 2100 North Atlantic Boulevard., Fort Lauderdale.   She had told friends that she was going out for a walk alone.  An unknown woman told Jacques friends that she had seen Jacques talking to a blond haired man who asked her (Jacques) “if she was wearing a one or two piece bathing suit”.   This alleged sighting occurred at 4am at a nearby Howard Johnson’s Motel.

Three days later on April 29th, the blond haired Jacques’  body was found severely decomposed in a canal north of Atlantic Avenue, around a mile east of Florida’s Turnpike, which was west of Delray Beach.  She was found wearing a mini-skirt, a tank-top and a gold ring.  There were no signs of physical trauma and she was identified through dental records.  No cause of death was ever determined but the medical examiner at the time stated that is was likely a homicide.  The death is being investigated as murder case due to the fact that her body was found in a remote area in western Palm Beach County which was 35 miles from downtown Fort Lauderdale.

If you have any information about this case, please call the Fort Lauderdale Police Department at (954) 828-5534
