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.
What happened to the 30-year-old Illinois woman? To figure it out, it's important to know every detail surrounding the woman in the time surrounding her disappearance. What is known is that she was last seen shopping on Monday night at a department store (which one?) in Machensney Park. She then returned home, but left to do something else around 9:00 p.m. Where did she go?
Reports indicate the woman was living in Roscoe, Illinois but there aren't many other details about this missing woman. Did she have a spouse or lover? Any former romantic interests? Did she have any rivals? Since she was known to have been shopping, is it possible that Katrina Smith could have fallen victim to a robbery turned fatal?
