19. DOROTHY JANE SCOTT
“The murder of Dorothy Jane Scott. Essentially, she was being stalked by somebody who claimed to be in love with her and would not leave her alone. The calls were innocent at first but became more demanding and angry as time went on. Dorothy, of course, quite understandably became more stressed out and in fear of her life. She had even taken up a self-defense class at a local community center.
The last anybody ever heard from her was over 30 years ago. A coworker had been bitten by a poisonous spider, and she and another coworker (also a woman) drove him to a nearby Arizona hospital to receive proper medical treatment.
After everything was all clear, she went into the parking lot to grab her car and drive to the main entrance to pick up her friends—except she pulled barreling out of the parking lot extremely fast going the wrong way, almost hitting her coworker who was trying to make sense of what was going on.
She had been on the way to pick up her son, and they found the car she drove on fire in a ditch off an exit on the interstate somewhere in the desert. She was never seen again. Her mother still receives calls from who the police presume is the suspect. The calls discontinued several years ago, prompting theories perhaps the killer is dead or has disappeared.”
