Marsha Brantley went missing from Cleveland, Tennessee sometime in June or July of 2009. She was an aspiring writer who loved spending time outdoors with her dogs.
Marsha’s hairdresser started asking questions about her whereabouts when she failed to show up for her hair appointment. Her husband, Donnie Brantley, claimed that Marsha had left him and they were getting a divorce.
She was an only child and both of her parents had passed years earlier. Her extended family didn’t even find out about her disappearance until December 2009.
Police began investigating the case and Donnie was indicted 2 separate times. Both times charges were dismissed. To this day Marsha’s body has never been found and the case remains unsolved.
