Ann Sigmin was first aired on the November 30th, 1988 episode of Unsolved Mysteries. She was initially aired along with her boyfriend Garey Goff and both were wanted for the murder of Ann's husband, Charlie. Below is the Unsolved Wikia description of the case.
Details: Ann Sigmin is the wife of Charles Sigmin, a God-fearing man who had a reputation for hard work and getting along well with others. However, his personal life did not go as well as his professional life, being checkered with failed relationships and periods of loneliness. When he married Ann Sigmin, Charlie felt he had a stable relationship, supporting her and adopting her two sons from a previous marriage. The two started a mom & pop truck farm, aptly named "C & A's". Trouble began when Ann developed a strange attraction and curiosity with demonic worship and witchcraft. It was first noticed once in the dead of night when Charlie realized a strange glow coming from his tool shed and investigated. Charlie walked in to see Ann in her underwear kneeing before an image of a demon, chanting and mezmerized. Although Charlie laid down the law, dragging Ann out of her trance and making no further mention, he soon was concerned for his marriage and what kind of woman he married, especially when he found satanic literature among Ann's possessions. Eventually Charlie served Ann divorce papers, and she moved to Caruthersville, Missouri. Ann began dating a retired cop named Garey Goff, whom she soon cohabited with. Charlie soon became depressed and resumed contact with Ann, but his depression and separation ended after Garey made a series of threatening phone calls to Charlie, which made him regain his senses and forget Ann, although Charlie took no action to have Garey Goff reported to the authorities.
On the night of October 19, 1986, Charlie received a phone call from Ann. She said she was suicidal and that the boys were very upset. Charlie was with a friend that night and told her he thought he was being set up, but that he would go anyway. At around 3am, Charlie arrived at Garey Goff's house, and about twenty minutes later he was dead. Ann quickly called the police and told them that Charlie had been shot. When questioned, Garey and Ann said that Charlie had come to the house and demanded to be let in. When they refused, he came in anyway and in a drunken rage began to beat Ann. Garey then hit Charlie with an iron and shot him several times in self-defense. Authorities were hesitant to believe the couple's story, especially when Charlie's friend was interrogated by police and she said he had not been drinking with her, nor had Charlie been known to be a heavy drinker. A friend of Ann's soon came forward and said that Ann had reasons for wanting Charlie dead. A few days after the murder, Ann's friend was given a wire and Ann made incriminating statements suggesting that she and Garey were going to leave town. Ann and Gary vanished shortly afterward and have not been seen since.
Results: Unsolved. Garey Goff had seen the broadcast and surrendered himself to authorities. He told police that he broke up with Ann shortly before the broadcast, and that she threatened to put satanic curses on him should he cooperate with police. However, a combination of a guilty conscience and fear of his exposure on Unsolved Mysteries were a stronger motivator for Goff to surrender. Goff elected to plead guilty instead of going to trial. In 1989, Garey Goff was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 20 years imprisonment. He was paroled in 2002. Ann Sigmin has yet to be apprehended. While in prison, Goff publicly begged Sigmin to turn her herself into the authorities, but she never did. Sigmin has been a fugitive for more than 25 years and would be in her 50s today. She is believed to be living in either Arizona or Oregon. She is also believed to be taking advantage of her physical features to falsely identify herself as an American Indian and feign acculturation with Indian nations. As such, tribal police have also been alerted that Ann Sigmin may be a danger to their areas.
Thoughts? The Unsolved wikia says Anne would likely be in her 50's today so there is a good chance she is still alive and a good chance she could still be captured.
