As he starts his day, his 6-year-old daughter, Cassandra, affectionately known as Casey, approaches him, telling him she is hungry. Ernie assures her that he'll quickly take a shower and then accompany her across the street to grab breakfast. Since Ernie and Angela had separated, the couple wanted to raise their children, Chelsea--age 12, Casey—age 6, Elizabeth—4, and little Ernie—2,  in a loving co-parenting style, Angela and the kids stay with her father at on Benton Street in Valley Park; while Ernie stays right across the street.As Ernie gets ready, he has no worries since a family friend, 24-year-old Johnny Johnson, is still asleep on the couch.  Both Angela and Ernie have known Johnson since he was a child. However, upon finishing his shower and returning upstairs for Casey, he discovers that she is nowhere to be found inside the house. Casey is missing.Join Jen and Cam on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast entitled ‘Little Girl Gone: Casey Williamson.”Listener discretion by @octoberpodVHSMusic by our E.P.  @theinkypawprintSources:https://people.com/johnny-johnson-murdered-casey-williamson-executed-7569504https://fox2now.com/news/true-crime/a-2002-st-louis-area-sleepover-ends-with-kidnapping-murder/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpIwxvWyM50https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMCbX7cPEzAnewspapers.comhttps://www.kansascity.com/news/state/missouri/article277306138.htmlhttps://fox2now.com/news/missouri/casey-williamsons-mother-devastated-after-convicted-killer-given-stay-of-execution/https://apnews.com/article/missouri-execution-casey-williamson-johnny-johnson-b0d87ed6e459e49cb53f9b4fa5fcd738https://nypost.com/2023/08/02/eerie-final-words-of-vampire-who-killed-6-year-old-girl/
