Joanne Albanese from Las Vegas was a mother of two teen daughters and a divorcee. She grew up with family and traveled through Europe because of her dad’s job.
She married Tom Albanese, her ex-husband, and shares two daughters from the relationship. Those two were teenage lovers who promised to be with each other but divorced in December 1991 after facing a complication.
While Joanne was moving on with her single life, she met John, a fitness trainer. The divorcee’s mother thought she had finally found a suitable partner for her at that time.
However, in August 1995, she mysteriously disappeared from her own house. Her two teen daughters, who had just arrived home after spending the weekend with their father, couldn’t find a trace of her.
Although they first thought she had gone on an unannounced vacation, the proof of her purse left behind, and the car found three days after the disappearance signified she went missing.
Later in October 1988, her skeletal remains were found by a hunter.
