On June 5th, 1986, four year old Jessica Gutierrez climbed into bed with her six year old sister, Becky, to go to sleep. The next morning, Jessica was gone and when her mother, Debra, asked what happened, Becky explained that during the night a man wearing a “magic hat” took her away.
Debra filed a missing person’s report, but unfortunately, her nightmare had only just begun. Despite a fingerprint found at the scene, an alleged confession and suspicions across the board, the man many believe responsible for the crime has never been charged.
A bitter dispute erupted between Debra, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Office and the South Carolina Solicitor. While Debra wanted answers, the Sheriff wanted charges and the solicitor felt they didn’t have enough evidence. Over the next thirty-three years the questions surrounding Jessica’s abduction have only grown while the answers have never been provided.
