Location Last Seen: On March 4, 1989, Shirley Gibbs Russell, a captain in the United States Marine Corps, disappeared from her married officers' quarters on the Quantico, Virginia, military base.

Circumstances of Disappearance: Her husband, Robert Peter Russell, was subsequently charged with her murder. Shirley had separated from her husband just a few weeks earlier, after having been married for about a year and a half. Though Robert Russell was living off base and Shirley Russell had moved to the Quantico bachelor quarters, they returned the weekend of March 4th to the apartment they had shared on base to finish cleaning it out, according to law enforcement officials. The Government's case against Russell comprised only circumstantial evidence. Neither the victim's body nor a murder weapon was ever recovered.
