What Happened to Katrina Smith?
October 26, 2012 06:00 PM EDT
1 person recommends this

Thirty-year-old Katrina Smith vanished sometime after October 20, 2012 -- when she was last seen. This case is immediately suspicious with negative elements due to the fact that her vehicle has already been found abandoned in a park. Her purse and cellphone have also been located, but she is nowhere to be found. There is no doubt that her loved ones must be bracing themselves for the worst in this developing case.

Search Crew Finds "Blood Soaked" Paper Towels in Search For Katrina Smith
By: Nick McGill
Updated: October 26, 2012

The items were discovered not too far from where her car was abandoned. They called police when they noticed her blue Chevy Cruze parked off the road in a ditch near the intersection of Ventura Blvd. and Obispo.

 

The Winnebago County Sheriff's department says they're not treating the case as a criminal investigation, but they haven't ruled it out.

 

Winnebago County Sheriff's Deputy Chief Dominic Iasparro says "we're not ruling foul play out .We just don't know. What's suspicious number one is that you have a thirty year old lady who's missing who had a vehicle that was left abandoned under suspicious circumstances."

 

Smith was last seen at home by her husband. He says she went out to run errands. Family friend Ann Derry explains "she ran to the store, got back home she had to run out again but she'd be back and her husband never heard from her again."

 ::snipping2::

Smith’s purse was recovered Wednesday, Oct. 24, a short distance from where the vehicle was located. During a search conducted by family and friends on Oct. 26, papers towels were recovered with a substance believed to be blood on them. These items were recovered in a field between Obispo and Ralston Road. Tests will need to be conducted to determine whether the blood belongs to Smith. Her cell phone was recovered in the 700 block of Ralston Thursday, Oct. 25.

Smith worked in the Human Resources Department at Camryn Company in Belvidere, Ill. She is married and her residence is on Tetterhall Lane in Machesney Park. However, she has recently been staying in Roscoe, Ill. She has no children, but does have family in the area.

Detectives have been able to determine Smith was shopping Monday night, Oct. 22, between 7 and 8 p.m. at department stores in the area of North Second Street and Illinois Route 173 in Machesney Park. She then reportedly returned to her residence in Machesney Park, and left around 9 p.m. to run additional errands.

I was on one of these searches on Friday morning. They found the bloody paper towels. , This girl went missing on the street (Ventura Blvd.) where I grew up..She has 3 step daughters, one who is in college. Paige is her name.. real sweet girl.
the weird thing is that Katrina's father was there, her sister and step daughter. then the husband arrived and no one spoke to each other that I saw..it was the weirdest thing.
I don'y think this will end well. I think that she  will be found in the river, which is a very short distance from where her car was found...ssssssoooooo sad..
I have heard that she and her husband are having problems and she wad house sitting on Ventura Blvd. There are not a lot of facts coming out.
thanks for starting this thread Klaas.

I was afraid of that Cookie.  I just got the feeling from the beginning that there were problems at home.  Very sad.

I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

I 'heard" that they found her wallet in the river..not sure if that is true.
I have not heard if husband has been given a poly. I don't want to think that he did this, but we all know that the last person to see a missing person has scrutiny.
husband had a Best Buy jacket on. not sure if he works there or not. very little info coming out..

River Search for Missing Machesney Park Woman

MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- It's been five days since Katrina Smith was last seen. She went out shopping late Monday night and never returned home. Family members and police have been searching for her over the last few days and today they turned their search to the Rock River.

More than a dozen local fire departments were called to the area of Ventura Boulevard near Schoonmaker Park in Machesney Park. Boats with new sonar equipment were sent out looking for Smith.

Thanks for searching, Cookie.  Did you search on Sunday?  I hope that it doesn't become a cold case like Timmothy--mom had committed suicide in Rochfort and her young son is still missing.

I did not search today, however we were at the search site when the search was going on. There is a no leash dog area located there that we take Molly to. I asked the volunteers who were at the sign in area if there was any word and they all said no...
In speaking at the dog run, others were talking  about it of course. some live very close to where this is all going on. The family was able to secure a couple of billboards with Katrina's picture on it.
I sincerely hope that this does not turn into a cold case. It seems that we have a fairly good detective group here..
oh, and get this...one of the women out there who mis greeting volunteers for the search, told me that someone had broken into 1 of the volunteers cars and stole 2 purses out of it! braod daylight and from someone who is trying to find a missing person! I swear I do not know what this world is coming to...
