NC WILKES JANE DOE: WF, 20-40, photo of gagged woman tied to chair - Circa 1970's or Early 80's

    From Websleuths forum report this interesting post of Carl Koppelman


    From Carl Koppelman: Back in 2015, I was contacted by a woman who told me that she thought her ex-husband was involved in the 1982 disappearance of Angie Hamby of Wilksboro North Carolina. She said that when they had separated, he left a lot of items behind in their house that she thought suspicious. She sent me the items in the mail, and as I looked through the items I found this 35 millimeter slide of an unknown female bound to a chair and gagged.


    She said that she recognized the background as being his apartment back in the 1970's.

    The woman in the photo obviously is not Angie Hamby, and there are no missing woman who resemble this woman. but this photo was obviously either evidence of a crime against an unknown victim, or something created with her cooperation for his own amusement.

    I immediately contacted the Wilkes County Sheriff, and told him about this woman's story. I emailed him this photo. The Sheriff detective said that was interesting because the woman's ex-husband contacted him about a month earlier, and said his ex wife was crazy and was going to make accusations against him. The detective had no idea who he was or what he was talking about - until I called.

    That was over two years ago, and I don't know what they were ever able to learn about this guy's possible connection to Angie Hamby or this unknown woman.

    But I was just looking at this photo again today, and figured it was time to show it to you all. This Port St. Joe thread seemed the best place to show it, as I don't think it warrants a dedicated thread.

    It kinda looks staged...hopefully.
    The scarf is not tight and her mouth is exposed.
    :gaah: Hope it's nothing.

    I thought it looked staged, too. And there's a cig pack in her pocket, right? Is that what it is? Seems strange that would just be sitting there.

    Amy, I don't think so. Her forehead is Higher. And this Females top of Her head is flatter. I also think this is "Staged" if You have someone Bound and gagged to a Chair, ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE THE "CURTAINS OPEN?!

    I agree this looks staged. Smokes in pocket, open window, scarf looks loose. Furthermore, it could be just me but something about her eyes dont portray distress. This could just be me though or how she honestly looks when she is distressed. However, the story behind this photo reaching the gentleman and the anonymous male caller stating his wife is going to make crazy accusations does make it highly suspicious to say the least and should be taken seriously.
