    Details of Disappearance

    Bennett was last seen in Pine Bluff, Arkansas on August 1, 2001. She has never been heard from again. She wasn't reported missing until March 11, 2002.

    In 2011, while looking for evidence in Bennett's case, police searched the former property of a Pine Bluff man who died in December 2010. His ex-wife told police he'd admitted to having killed a woman named "Show-Do." This was Bennett's nickname. He supposedly buried her body under an outhouse on his property in the 10200 block of Princeton Pike Road in Pine Bluff. The police looked at the property but did not dig, and they found no evidence of human remains. Media reports stated Bennett was a prostitute, an allegation her family denies. Her case remains unsolved.
