VELDA LEYBA VANISHED ON DAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY
Isabel said her mom called to let her know she was leaving: "It was not in my mom's nature to not be with me. We were very close so I knew when she didn't show up that something was wrong. They (Police) told me I had to wait a 24 hour period before they could report her missing."
Cops largely ignored the case until her Chrysler LeBaron turned up three months later. The car contained her personal items. Sources told cops the
killer's name but he could not be linked to the disappearance. And everyone was afraid of the unnamed monster.
Investigators think they have a pretty good chance of solving this 20 year old mystery. But, Leyba's family said they've have been let down before. Her family said she battled a drug addiction after the accidental death of her 9 year old daughter. Police don't know if drugs played a role in her disappearance.
