Update: A story from NBC5 about cars being raised from Benbrook Lake as part of the search for the three missing women.
Podcast True Crime Garage this week is focusing on one of Fort Worth’s most enduring mysteries. The Missing Trio who disappeared just before Christmas in 1974.
Rusty Arnold is the younger brother of 17-year-old Rachel Trlica, who, just two days before Christmas in 1974, disappeared from the then-Seminary South shopping center – now La Gran Plaza – in south Fort Worth, along with 14-year-old Renee Wilson and 9-year-old Julie Ann Moseley. He has been seeking answers for years.
The case involving Arnold’s sister stretches back to the days before DNA became a practical law enforcement tool. In 1974, police initially thought the young women had run away, an assumption that angers Arnold and other family members because it led to a delay in any investigation. Their car, an Oldsmobile, was located around 6 p.m. on Dec. 23, 1974, empty, with Christmas presents locked inside.
Arnold has been raising funds to pull some cars from Benbrook Lake in a search for the Missing Trio.
