alissa turney

On May 17, 2001, 17-year-old Alissa Turney disappeared from her home in Phoenix, Arizona. She was last seen by her stepfather, Michael Turney, who picked her up from school early. He claims that they had an argument and she stormed off, but her friends and family say that this is out of character for her.

Alissa left behind a note that said she was running away to California, but her cell phone and other personal items were left behind. She also had plans to go to a party that night, but she never showed up.

The police initially believed that Alissa was a runaway, but as the investigation went on, they began to suspect foul play. Michael Turney had a history of violence and abuse, and he had been controlling and possessive of Alissa. He also had a surveillance system set up around the house, and he was known to monitor Alissa’s activities closely.

In 2006, a convicted murderer in Florida claimed to be a serial killer and confessed to killing Alissa. However, investigators found his claims to be false.

In 2020, Michael Turney was arrested and charged with Alissa’s murder. However, he was acquitted in 2022 due to lack of evidence.

Alissa Turney’s case remains unsolved, but her family and friends have not given up hope. They are still searching for answers and they continue to raise awareness about her disappearance.
