Missing and Presumed Dead
Publisher: WildBlue Press
The true story of a bizarre case in Myrtle Beach, and the trials that followed a young woman’s disappearance, by the bestselling author of Better Off Dead. On a cold Southern night in 2013, under a full moon, twenty-year-old Heather Elvis parked her car at a boat ramp along the Intracoastal Waterway and was never seen again. The disappearance of the beautiful, vivacious hostess at a popular Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, restaurant made international headlines and triggered a sweeping high-stakes investigation that exposed a twisted web of deception, betrayal, sexual obsession, police corruption, and revenge. But Heather’s body was never located. A series of sensational trials involving a handsome restaurant coworker and his Disneyland-obsessed wife resulted in shocking verdicts—but no body—as her family desperately sought closure and fought for justice, and a resort town struggled to regain calm. This is the full compelling story from a renowned author of true crime.
