Stephanie Myles mysteriously disappeared at the age of 18 on December 13th, 2014. She left her family’s home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that afternoon to walk to a nearby Walgreens store. Stephanie was last seen walking towards the store near 85th and Brown Deer Road. She never made it to the store and she never returned home. Stephanie’s family members immediately began to worry about her when she did not return, especially because she left her 1 year-old son behind. She was reported missing shortly after her disappearance.
In the months that followed, Stephanie’s family members used social media to get the word out about her disappearance, and they had Stephanie entered into a missing persons registry. Unfortunately, they never received any clues that lead to Stephanie. Then, over a year later on February 21st, 2016, human remains were found behind an elementary school on 96th and Allyn—not far from where Stephanie was last seen. Just five days later, those remains were confirmed to be hers.
Police have not publicly announced Stephanie’s cause of death, however they are investigating her death as a homicide. No arrests have been made in the case and it does not appear that police have any suspects at this time either. Stephanie’s family members are baffled by Stephanie’s murder and they are hoping that the person(s) responsible will come forward. Police are also urging anyone with information on the case to contact the Milwaukee Police Department at (414) 935-7262.
