Person of interest in missing Levelland woman's murder, named POI in wife's disappearance

Posted: Updated:

The person of interest in the murder of a Levelland woman who was found in Abilene, TX is renamed as a person of interest in the disappearance of his wife.

His wife, Stephanie Henderson, has been missing since 1993.

"The circumstances around it, we're still trying to determine, but we've spent the last three months sort of familiarizing ourselves with that case after Jeannie Quinn went missing, it's fair to say that we continue to look at it," said Ray Scrifres, Hockley Co. Sheriff.

Stephanie, 21 at the time, was last seen in Levelland. 

According to the Charley Project she had an argument with her husband, Ricky. She called her grandmother to tell her she was leaving but by the time her grandmother got to the house, she was already gone.

Henderson claimed Stephanie was picked up by some friends from Hobbs, NM. All of Stephanie's personal belongings were left behind.

Her disappearance was not reported for several weeks. Her family believed she was in New Mexico.

A few weeks later, Stephanie's grandmother received a letter in the mail stating she was in Hobbs. She grew suspicious after noticing it was postmarked Lubbock and called police.

According to the Charley Project, foul play was suspected and the friends who "supposedly" took her to Hobbs said they did not. The letter was also determined to be from a man after saliva on the envelope flap was tested. 

"The main issue we have right now is that we don't have a crime scene," Scifres said. "We don't have some of the evidence that we'd like to have and number one we don't know for a fact, where any of this occurred."

Currently no new information has turned up which means Scifres cannot make an arrest in the case.

"My feeling is there's someone out there that knows something and we have to remember that just as in Jeannie's case, we have a family that's grieving, we have a family that has that void and we are doing what we can to help bring closure to this matter."

If you have a tip you are urged to call it in no matter how small it is.
