Thirteen year old Alexandra Anaya vanished without a trace from her home in Hammond, Indiana. Her mother, Sandra was baffled. No signs of forced entry, no signs of a struggle. It was almost as if she had disappeared from the face of the earth.

While Sandra, her family and police were trying to track down the missing teen, the Chicago Police were responding to a call about a body discovered in the Little Calumet River. Wrapped in chains and strapped to a cinder block was the dismembered torso of a young woman.

Three weeks later, a DNA match confirmed that Alexandra Anaya had been brutally murdered before her killer severed her arms, legs and head. To this day, all of her remains have never been found.

While locals believed the crime had to have been random and was likely committed by a serial killer, Alexandra's mother felt she knew exactly who was responsible and he was definitely no stranger.
