The Girl I Never Knew

The Girl I Never Knew is an edge-of-your-seat account of one woman's passionate fight for justice in the decades old murder case of 19-year-old Melissa Ann Witt.

On December 1, 1994, Melissa Witt was abducted from the Bowling World parking lot in Fort Smith, Arkansas.  Her lifeless body was discovered six weeks later in a remote area of the Ozark National Forest. 

Melissa's killer remains at large.


"LaDonna Humphrey restores my faith in all of humanity.  This book is a painstaking labor of love, masterfully woven together to create a riveting page-turner that describes her hunt for a killer and the traction she is gaining to solve this cold case."
