Overview of Susan Smalley

Susan Smalley and her friend, Stacie Madison, were last seen leaving a restaurant after visiting with Susan's coworkers for a few minutes. Susan Smalley and Stacie Madison stayed at Susan's home overnight on March 19, 1988. Both girls had disappeared by the following morning (March 20). Police know the girls were at Susan's house by midnight. At 24.01 that Sunday, they called one of Stacie's friends in Arlington, a guy she may have been dating. Police aren't sure why the two went out again.

At some point during the evening, they drove to Arlington and found an apartment full of people hanging out. They left, with plans to eat at Chili's, and said they might return, according to the police file. That night, Susan and Stacie also went to the Steak and Ale on Belt Line Road. Stacie waited in her car while Susan went inside to talk to a coworker. Susan and Stacie left in less than five minutes. A 7-Eleven clerk later told police the two had tried to buy beer from her Saturday night, apparently before they went to the restaurant. That was the last time anyone saw them. Stacie's green-and-gold Mustang convertible was found that day in a strip-mall parking lot at Forest Lane and Webb Chapel Road in Dallas -- locked, with her portable stereo undisturbed on the back seat. There was no sign of either Smalley or Madison. Susan Smalley was only 18 but possessed the maturity and responsibility of an older woman. She worked two jobs while earning above-average grades.
