Shaylene Farrell was last seen leaving her family's residence in Piqua, Ohio at approximately 10:00 AM on August 8, 1994. She was driving her mother's 1981 silver Chevrolet Malibu. Later that same day the car was discovered abandoned in the parking lot of the Pick-N-Save on Route 36 in Piqua, where Shaylene was employed, but there was no sign of her. Shaylene Farrell has not been seen again. Her case remains unsolved.

Wild Bill

My Diary: Saturday, August 6th, 1994: Today is the 42nd day since "Wild Bill" got out of jail. I wonder if history will repeat itself.

He picked up a woman with blond hair at a Parkersburg, West Virginia bar 2:30 AM. Left town. Returned at 5:00 AM - alone:

[few days later Mae Belle Clark was found murdered in the Charleston, West Virginia area. Her case remains unsolved, and no one is working it or interested in who murdered her. I'm afraid I know who it was, but---]

I didn't know anything about the disappearance of Shaylene Farrell until January 2006. I immediately began researching her case.

Today, after seeing Shaylene's picture, I cannot help but think how much she looked like Wild Bill's first wife - whose last name was Farrell.

And today I can only wonder - was a load of kitchen or bathroom cabinets delivered by truck or van to a store in the area that Shaylene disappeared from, around the time she disappeared?

These cabinets would have been brought to the area from the Beverly, Ohio area.

If any of this matches with any known information, those who are involved in researching this case are welcome to contact me via email and I will discuss further details with them.

All I know for certain is - Wild Bill has been arrested twice in this area on sexual offenses committed against women and girls. In 1994 he went to jail for 60 days for one of these offenses, and when he came out he was in a rage, and stayed in it for quite some time.

He roams in about a 200 mile radius of Belpre, Ohio on a regular basis, and when time permits he ranges even further.

Map shows route from Beverly, Ohio to Piqua, Ohio. Distance was given as 185.4 miles ... about a 3 hour drive.

My Reply To Darlene Farrell

I'll be glad to add your message to her web page. Hope you're right.


If being a person's mother enables you to say who 'didn't' abduct/kill your daughter, then shouldn't it also give the answer of who did?

I had this same thought several years ago about a certain cop who insisted - "It isn't Bill." If he was so damned sure it wasn't Bill, then he should have known who it was.

Personally, I'm not convinced 'it' isn't Bill, so I'll continue on with my work until I can see who 'it' is, one way or another.
