On Thursday, Feb. 21, 1991, a Quinlan police officer arrested Carey Mae Parker on a warrant for traffic offenses. Here's what happened next.
Law enforcement officials in the Lake Tawakoni area had a reputation for corruption and criminality -- much of it deserved -- throughout the 1990s. Police officers in south Hunt County say they're still picking up the pieces.
In November 2016, a detective from the Hunt Co. Sheriff's Office traveled to Tishomingo, OK, to track down and question Carey's ex-boyfriend Cody. Cody tells Sgt. Jeff Haines that Carey started "stalking" him and followed him to a party in Hawk Cove, TX. Cody says that was the last time he saw her.
Janice and Cody lived together for a year in Oklahoma. She says that not long after they started dating, he mentioned Carey and the last time he says he saw her. He told her that Carey threw a drink in his face before leaving a party. Carey's brother Glenn says that Cody's father started acting strangely after her disappearance. He believes they both knew something about it.
In the five years after Carey's family filed its missing person report, the Hunt Co. Sheriff’s Office didn't interview her ex-boyfriend Cody. So, one day in May 2014, her son Brian took matters into his own hands. In a 7-minute call, Brian questions Cody about some of the things his grandfather told the family about a party and a fight in a place called Hawk Cove.
