Description

In February of 2000, a 9-year-old girl named Asha Degree packed her book bag and tucked it away, waiting for the right time to sneak out of her North Carolina home. To this day, no one knows why she left, or why she was walking along Highway 18 alone around 4 in the morning. And the case would only get more confusing as her belongings start to pop up along that same highway, spaced out over 26 miles, and 18 months.

I am so glad that you decided to do this . My name is Gina Greene and I went to school with both Ashias mom and dad. We all graduated together. I am also the sister of Ashias basketball coach and I was with Iquilla and Ashia the Saturday before Ashia went missing. Ashia was ok after the game because she came over and sat with her mom and I and we all talked after the game. I gave her money to go and get a brownie and she came back smiling and laughing. My whole family have been interviewed by the SBI and FBI. We helped look for her for days and days. Her mom and dad still to this day hold hope of finding her. We as a community would love to welcome her home. they have released a Night shirt that they are asking about wanting to know if by some chance someone had one or remembers one. HWY 18 is more rural but it leads you toward HWY 40 which is a main Interstate. Toward that interstate was where the book bag was found. She ran toward the she'd because it was raining. bestillginagreene@gmail.com is my email if you would like to contact me. Gina Greene

I am so glad you chose this story, I went to school with her brother and her uncle couch my little league football, she use to come to our practices. when she went missing was the first time my little mind registered that bad things really happen. so she has stuck with me since. her brother wore a button with her picture on everyday all the way through high school. this is the local mystery.

Bekah Renee Anderson My son sleep walks occasionally(he's 8), and he thinks subconsiously he knows what he's doing, but really he has no idea. I found him standing between the shower curtain and the bathtub.I waited a few minutes and he didn't move, so I asked him what he was doing, he didn't answer, I grabbed him by the hand and led him to the hallway toward his room. He walked to his room and climbed up to the top bunk with no problems. My point is, while technically operational while sleep walking, I do not think Asha would have brought a bag with her. Maybe wandered off, but I also don't think she would have gotten very far on her own if she was not awake.

Edilia Terriquez where she was, while technically still a highway, it was out in the country and there isn't much traffic and it's very common to see people walking up and down that road. I know that I would probably call the cops to report a little kid walking in the middle of the night, but if I remember correctly she was tall like her brother, so people may have thought she was older than she was. I was 10 when this happened, so I could be wrong about that, because I was tiny and everyone was taller than me.

You guys should look into the largest unsolved mass murder in Canadian history. The bombing of Canadian Pacific flight 21 in the 1960s. 4 suspects, all with compelling evidence against and for each of them. It's a wierd case, but it's really interesting and was never covered well by the media.
