    Details of Disappearance

    Gonzales was last seen in Rayne, Louisiana on April 7, 1992 at 3:00 p.m., walking along South Adams Street near Devil's Alley. She was selling cancer policies to businesses in the area. She had just started her job and it was her first day without her boss accompanying her.

    Gonzales's blue 1982 Pontiac Bonneville was found in a parking lot off of Devil's Alley near South Adams Street. Her purse and driver's license were in the trunk, but the car keys were missing, as well as her brown insurance briefcase. Three people reported seeing Gonzales the day after her reported disappearance.

    Investigators believe Gonzales met with foul play, as it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She had spent several years with the Trappistine nuns in Iowa and had contemplated joining the order. Her case remains unsolved.
