It’s 1974 in the small town of Laurel, Indiana, and Lula Gillespie-Miller suddenly disappears from her family home. Leaving her young children behind, she vanishes, in fact, without a trace. And for more than four decades, the woman’s loved ones remain in the dark about her fate – until one investigator makes an incredible discovery.
Frustratingly, details about Lula’s life before her disappearance are scarce. According to some sources, she was a mom to three small children, including a girl called Tammy and a newborn baby. However, in December 2014 a post surfaced that offered a different account of Lula’s circumstances.
Written by a now-grown Tammy, the post claimed that Lula had four children, not three. What’s more, it stated that her husband, Joe Gambill, had died in a road accident back in 1969. If true, this version of events would have left Lula widowed at a tender age. And if she had given birth shortly before her disappearance, it would have been to the child of another man.
