Details of Disappearance

Bronaugh was last seen outside of her apartment in Laredo, Texas on April 8, 1991. She was entering a dark-colored pickup truck driven by an unidentified male with a light complexion. Bronaugh has never been heard from again. Foul play is suspected in her case.

Authorities believe that Bronaugh's remains may be those of an unidentified female discovered in Corpus Christi, Texas on March 2, 1992. Bronaugh was adopted from the Philippines and authorities do not know the whereabouts of her biological family; DNA testing is not possible as a result.

A sketch of the unidentified victim is posted with this case summary. The woman was wearing a long black coat, a black minidress, black stockings or pantyhose and a red belt with a square-shaped buckle. One white knee-high boot with a zipper on the rear of the shoe and a red leaf-shaped earring were discovered near her remains. The victim's clothing is similar to the items Bronaugh was wearing at the time of her disappearance.

Both Bronaugh and the unidentified female had problems with their left knees. The victim exhibited symptoms of a degenerative joint disease with exostosis on the left end of her fibula, indicating possible previous trauma to her left knee.

Bronaugh remains classified as a missing person due to the impossibility of DNA testing.
