Uncommon Knowledge


Faces of cases.


 "The abuse of people is not new. Some of the methods and reasons are new. We are also seeing two diabolic stances on the issue and in reality crimes at times are not worked and justice is not met. I have reviewed your report and wish you good luck....

I am sure the results may startle some and confirm to others what is being heard in the therapist's office and in the sanctuaries of churches is true."

Rachael Marie Runyan

September 30, 2011

On August 26th, 1982, Rachael Marie Runyan was playing with her brothers in a neighborhood park behind her home, within 40 feet of their mother. A strange man approached and led this beautiful little girl away, never to be seen alive again. Her tiny body was found in a shallow stream in Morgan County, just off the dirt road Trappers Loop. She was found with her hands and feet bound behind her back.

Rachael was merely 3 years young, but her life has impacted us to this day. What we now know as the Amber Alert, was originally named in Rachael's honor--thanks to her mother's (Elaine Runyan-Simmons) diligence and selfless pursuit on behalf of the protection of children everywhere.

A suspect was identified as being a black man, between the ages of 25 and 35 with a slender to medium build, driving a blue mid-sized car. After the case growing cold for many years, it was reopened in 2007. Still, no arrests have been made.

"In my opinion, she brings a unique perspective to a topic that many persons in my field [psychology] and, I assume, law enforcement would rather not have to know about, much less treat or investigate."
