The Disappearance of Heather Teague

Today our blog takes a look into the disappearance of Heather Teague from Spottsville, Kentucky. I came to know Heather's case from Iva Bradley (mother of missing Amy Bradley). Heather's case is one of the most baffling cases I've seen since I began working with the missing. Heather was abducted in broad daylight on August 26, 1995 from a man-made beach (better known as the Ohio river). As the abduction was taking place, a man watching through a telescope from on the Indiana side of the Ohio river saw the whole nightmare unfold. The man would later tell authorities that he saw a man come out of the woods near where Heather lying in the sun, stick a gun to Heather's head and wisk her away. The witness would stay on the phone with the police as he came across the river in his boat to show them the exact location. A massive search was launched for Heather, but nothing turned up. Five days after Heather's abduction a composite sketch became available, as well as a tape that was turned in by a man who was recording the area that day. The man was recording crop damage when he apparently captured some important evidence in Heather's disappearance. His tape would show a Bronco that later would belong to a man that fit the composite sketch drawn. It would also show what appeared to be someone ransacking Heather's car.
Authorities would begin a focus on a man named Marvin "Marty" Dill who owned the Bronco that was seen in the area the day Heather was taken. Before authorities could close in on Dill to question him about his possible involvement in Heather's abduction, he ended his life with a single gunshot wound to his head. It appeared Heather's case had come to a close with no answers.
Unable to accept the fact that Heather was possibly gone forever, and having no answers, Heather's mother, Sarah Teague began her own search and investigation. Sarah has searched in many places that a mother should never have to look for a child.
In late 2004, a detective in Northern Ohio contacted Sarah and told her that he believes Heather's disappearance was linked to another man, Christopher Below. Below is believed to be a possible serial killer and could have been in the area the day Heather vanished. He is serving time for the disapearance of another women that he admitted to killing. Below was in a relationship with Kathern Fetzer when she decided to stop seeing him. Kathern vanished without a trace and her abandoned car was found near some railroad tracks, but never a sign of Kathern. Christopher Below told authorities that he murdered her and then disposed of her remains in a trash dumpster. He claims he cannot remember the location, so the hopes of finding Kathern's remains are very grim. Police are interested in Below for his possible involvement with Heather's disappearance because he was living in the same area where Heather lived when she vanished. Below also told authorities that one of his favorite places to go was near the Ohio river, the same place Heather was the day she vanished. After doing some of my own researching, I sent these other ladies to the police dept., and they'd take this information to begin a deeper look into the others. These ladies all were so similar in appearance, and not far apart in a circular radius.

Within a month, more names were added to the possible list. All of these ladies that authorities are taking a close look into are eerily similar in appearance. All of the ladies are within a 350 mile radius of where Christopher Below drove on his trucking route. Below are two other ladies that authorities are looking at for a possible link to Heather Teague and Kathern Fetzer.
Pictured to the left, is Alana "Laney" Gwinner. She mysteriously vanished from a bowling alley in late Dec. of 1997, two years after Heather's disappearance. Gwinner was later found dead in the Ohio river. Her murder remains unsolved and her vehicle has never been found.

The next person that authorities are taking a close look at for a possible link to Christopher Below is Erica Lee Fraysure who vanished on October 1997 night in Southern Kentucky. Her abandoned car was found near some railroad tracks, but no sign of Erica. Erica was only 17 years old when she vanished. Authorities never classified Erica as a runaway because she is not the type to run off. They fear that Erica was a possible victim of foul play. Erica's mother went on the Montel show to have a meeting with Sylvia Browne and the results of that interview were not helpful at all with this search for Erica.

There is yet one more lady that authorities believe Chris Below knows something about. She is not one of the ones I put on the list, but she's been mentioned several times in the articles concerning the missing ladies. Her name is Shaylene Farrell from Piqua, Ohio. Farrell like Kathern Fetzer and Erica Fraysure vanished without a trace and her car was found abandoned. She's been missing since 1984. Her appearance resembles the other ladies shown in this blog.

Do all these ladies have something in common with the abduction of Heather Teague? How will these families find out what really happened, and if it was Christopher Below, will he help authorities? So far, he has been uncooperative in this investigation.

In the last year, Sarah Teague gained renewed hope of this case being solved. In a horrible turn of events, on the 10th anniversary of Heather's disappearance, Sarah's neice Sueann Ray would disappear. The family is currently searching for both ladies, and do not believe that their disappearances are related. All of these ladies that were discussed tonight, have families that our group has worked closely with. Sarah Teague is one my dearest friends. She is a strong lady who wants answers for what happened to Heather. Sarah has also talked with Debra Culberson on a few occasions for advice on how she should handle certain issues. Heather vanished on August 26, 1995 and Carrie vanished on August 28, 1996.
