Today in True Crime: June 23rd, 2022

 Today's true crime anniversaries involve two murder cases that unfortunately remain unsolved today. 

1. The disappearance and murder of Lechmani Desroches

It's been five years since Lechmani Desroches vanished from Orlando, Florida on June 23rd, 2017. The then-23-year-old's family members were quite worried when he fell out-of-touch, as he was close with his siblings, and it was unusual for him to not contact them. Unfortunately, there was very little media coverage about his disappearance and the case quickly went cold.

Over a year later, in September 2018, human remains were found in a wooded area off of Marden Road in Apopka. Authorities obtained a DNA sample from one of Lechmani's sisters, which helped confirm that those remains did, in fact, belong to Lechmani Desroches. His death was labeled as a homicide. Since then, there have been very little updates in his case.

2. The disappearance and murder of Kelly Nolan

It's been 15 years since Kelly Nolan vanished in Madison, Wisconsin. At the time of her disappearance, the 22-year-old was a student at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and she was spending her summer break in Madison. She was last seen alive by her friends during the early morning hours of June 23rd, 2007. The previous evening, Kelly and some friends had gone to a few different bars in downtown Madison. At some point, Kelly became separated from her friends. Various reports state that Kelly likely left the State Street area around 2:30 AM. She was reported missing after her family members were unable to get in touch. 

In the early stages of the investigation, police interviewed several people who had interacted with Kelly on the night she vanished. Police initially said that they did not have any evidence that foul play was involved in her disappearance. However, on July 9th, 2007, a search team was sent to a spot off Schneider Road in the town of Dunn. During that search, Kelly's body was found in a wooded area. She had no known connections to that area, and it is unclear how investigators were drawn to that specific location. Kelly's death was labeled as a homicide, but to this day investigators have still not revealed how exactly she died. Her case remains unsolved.
