Lenox Square disappearance haunts Atlanta to this day

When Mary Shotwell Little failed to show up for work at CS Bank at Lenox Square mall in Buckhead Oct. 15, 1965, her boss called security.

The previous evening, she met a coworker there for dinner because her husband was out of town on business. It was the last place she was seen.

A search of the lot turned up nothing. Back then, Lenox was an open-air mall anchored by a grocery store. It would have been easy to spot a new pearl grey Mercury Comet.

Then someone returned her car to the mall, to exactly where it was supposed to be, to where earlier in the morning it apparently had not been.

Its condition would lead to a stunning puzzle that remains one of the great unsolved mysteries in Atlanta’s history, one that may be closer to being solved now than at any point over the last five decades.

Months before she was killed in Atlanta, foster girl told police she was raped in Columbus – Columbus Ledger

A 17-year-old girl found shot to death in Atlanta on Sept. 21 told police three months before she went missing that she was raped at an apartment in north Columbus.

The Ledger-Enquirer received the 13-page case report after submitting an open records request to the Columbus Police Department.

According to the report, Denetta Franks was a ward of the state who was staying at the Holiday Inn Express, located at 7336 Bear Lane, until she went missing Sept. 7, never to return again. Her name was redacted out of the case report regarding the rape, but she was identified in another police report on the same incident obtained by the newspaper.

On Sept. 21, Franks’ body was found in Atlanta in the middle of Hortense Place Northwest near the intersection of Florence Place Northwest. The girl’s family recognized a facial reconstruction circulated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,
