Cold Case Spotlight

On 10-09-1984 between 4:30 PM and 4:45 PM, 21-year-old Kim Sue LEGGETT was abducted from the Ross Cotton Gin in Mercedes, Texas, where she worked as a secretary. Mrs. LEGGETT was last seen in the company of two unknown males. Mrs. LEGGETT's father received a ransom telephone call from an unidentified male within a few minutes of her kip/abduction. A few days later, her mother and father received another ransom letter via mail. Neither the telephone call or the message was followed up by the kidnappers. Mercedes Law Enforcement investigators presume that Mrs. LEGGETT was murdered by her kidnappers and her body has never been recovered. Mrs. LEGGETT left behind her husband and a young son along with her immediate family. She has Blonde hair, blue eyes. Leggett has a scar on her chin. Her both ears are pierced. No Justice. No Peace.
