Does anyone here remember this? Her name was Margaret Dodd, she worked in the Raleigh mall at the time. She was abducted at a gas station that use to be in Beaver right next to where the boat dealership is. There were even a few eye witnesses to the incident. One child said the man kind of resembled Fonzie.

I read that a man from akron ohio claimed he did it and wanted a ransom, but when the feds met with a guy the exchange was botched and the suspect was shot in the head. Margaret was never found from what I know.

Anyone ever hear anything more about this? That was a scary time in this area, there were a lot of abductions back then. My mother actually knew this woman who disappeared. It's a sad story. Especially the fact that she was never found.

I don't remember that but I remember when a teenage girl named Donna Sue Daniels went missing from Hill's Dept store in 1982. I was a little kid then so I might be off a little on the facts.

Do you all remember when Becky Sue left home back in 85? Well she married me and now is one of the happiest women in VA, all because this hunk of a man swept her off her feet and showed her what true love was all about.

Margie was my cousin, and was abducted in 1977. She was married to Kent Dodd and dont know whatever happened to him. Her mother, my aunt, died of a broken heart and her dad wasnt far behind. If anyone knows anyone anything about this case please contact the wv state police.
