Missing Person Kristi O'Pry

Friday July 13, 2007 UPDATE

The prime suspect in Kristi's disappearance has confessed to police that he killed her in July of 1996.

Memorial Page for Charles S. Martin, Jr.

Kristi Gwen O'Pry was last seen by family members in Shreveport, Louisiana on Friday July 19, 1996. She needed a ride to run some errands and because she did not own a car she asked her boyfriend's friend Eric to give her a ride. After Eric brought Kristi to run her errands they went by her sister's home to visit. They visited with Kristi's sister Paige from 7 to 8pm. Kristi and Eric left together that night and Kristi has never been seen or heard from again by family members. Eric told The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office that he dropped Kristi off at South Park Mall on Jewella Avenue in Shreveport at 8:30 that night. Detectives in charge of the case have investigated many leads but have been unable to confirm her whereabouts after she left her sister's house in south Shreveport in a white, early-model Chevrolet fleetside pickup truck with Eric Dale Mickelson. Authorities suspect foul play and family members fear the worst. Kristi's mysterious disappearance has caused her family unrelenting pain and sadness. "Kristi would never leave town without telling anyone" says her sister, Paige. "I know her too well to think she could leave her little girl."

Kristi was a kind and loving girl who is missed more than any set of words could express. She was a ray of sunshine to everyone who had the privilege of knowing her and is thought of constantly by her young daughter and the rest of her family and friends. Kristi can never be replaced.

The Hope Denise Hall DNA Action Memorial
"Seeking to implement an International DNA Database" Hope Denise Hall was violently raped and murdered in 1994 in Petersburg, Virginia. Nearly four years after the crime, the perpetrator was identified during a random DNA search conducted by Virginia forensic scientists. The family of Hope Hall have created this web site in her honor. Their purpose is to push the implementation of the existing DNA databank to include DNA samples of all national and international criminals. The successful implementation of connecting all countries in the world in a single DNA database will escalate the rate of capture and conviction of criminals and also help to release innocent individuals currently in prison for crimes they didn't commit.
