Cold Case: Family pleads for answers in disappearance of Riviera Beach woman
RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Their loved one has been missing for over 35 years, and what happened to her remains a mystery.
Three sisters are hoping for some sort of break in the case after their youngest sister from Riviera Beach went missing and never returned.
Edith Kelson has kept everything related to her sister’s cold case, from newspaper clippings, pictures, and even letters she sent to officials over the years pleading for help.
Their sister, Lillie Miller, who was 21 at the time, left her secretarial job at Riviera Beach City Hall in early December 1981.
Reports say she went to have lunch with her boyfriend, Otis Morgan, and never returned to work. She has never been heard from again.
“We were just expecting her to come back,” Kelson said.
“I just want to know where she is. Safe, dead or alive. I want to know where she is.”
Investigators found Lillie’s yellow Pontiac Grand Prix less than a block from the municipal complex.
Her boyfriend, Morgan, was considered a suspect in her disappearance. He ended up committing suicide.
“I want people who know what’s going on, to go in their hearts and tell us what happened,” Kelson said.
The family wants answers, so they can have peace and closure.
“She way our baby. She was our heart,” Kelson said.
