Classification: Endangered Missing


Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Turner was last seen on December 4, 1997 in Indianapolis, Indiana. She was employed as an exotic dancer at Babe's Showgirls West and was last seen leaving the club after her shift ended in the early morning hours. She left her place of employment, possibly with an ex-boyfriend.

Turner's car was being repaired several days prior to her disappearance and her boyfriend was picking her up from work as a result. Turner's landlord and a service worker saw Turner and her boyfriend together at her apartment on December 3, the day before she vanished. Turner chained her dog outside in her backyard, as was her routine before she left for work. She never returned home after her dance shift. The neighbors called the Humane Society three days later, when Turner's dog was still outside. The animal was taken to a shelter.

Turner and her boyfriend, an enforcer in the Outlaws motorcycle gang, became engaged prior to Thanksgiving 1997. Authorities learned that they had an appointment to apply for their marriage license during early December, but she decided to cancel the plans. According to Turner's family and friends, she was attempting to end their relationship in full. Turner said she would bring her boyfriend to meet her family in Kenosha, Wisconsin over the Thanksgiving holiday, but she never showed up. She last spoke to her family on December 1 of that year, when she called her mother collect.
