Authorities are searching for the killer of 11-year old Heidi Seeman. AMW aired this case when Heidi was still missing.
On Aug 4, 1990, 11-year old Heidi Seeman was abducted while walking near her home in San Antonio, Texas. On Aug 25, 1990, a rancher discovered Heidi's decomposing body in two duct-tape bound trash bags, she had been sexually assaulted. There were two suspects in this case, a former Air Force Major named Robert Eric Duncan and a man convicted on drug charges named Jerry Nabor. Former lead investigator Jimmy Holguin, believed that Jerry Nabor was the killer. Retired Hays County Sheriff Paul Hastings believed that Duncan was the killer and was seeking revenge against Heidi's father. Neither of the two men were ever brought to trial in this case.
A possible suspect was a white or hispanic male, with dark hair and a mustache that was seen driving a small red vehicle around the time that Heidi disappeared.
On Aug 23, 1990, when Heidi was still missing, 7-year old Erica Marie Botello disappeared in San Antonio. Her body was found one day after Heidi's body was found. Authorities never determined that the two cases were related and both murders remain unsolved.
As a result of Heidi's murder, the Heidi Search Center was founded, which provides services to families searching for missing people.
Thoughts? The fact that Heidi was sexually assaulted makes me doubt that Duncan would be the killer, if the motive was seeking revenge at Heidi's father, although Nabor was never charged either. The cases of Heidi Seeman and Erica Botello were probably related in my opinion, based on how close their disappearances were, the similar ages and that both murders remain unsolved. If neither Duncan and Nabor were the killer, then the killer may still be out there, getting away with at least Heidi's murder (possibly could have been arrested at one point for another crime however).
