    Megan Nichols (16) was found dead more than three years after she went missing

    http://www.nbcnews.com/feature/missi...ichols-n178011



    On July 3rd, Megan Nichols disappeared from her home in Fairfield, Illinois.

    That night, her mother, Kathy Jo Hutchcraft, discovered a note Megan had left behind telling her mother that she loved her, but would never be happy at home. She also left her cell phone, which had been wiped clean.

    "Megan wouldn't do this, she wouldn't just leave," Hutchcraft told 14News, a local NBC affiliate.

    According to authorities, Megan, who was 15 when she was last seen, withdrew money from a local bank while on her bicycle prior to her disappearance. Despite being missing for over a month, however, there are no active leads.
    Megan is 5'6'' tall, and weighs 111 lbs. If you have any information on her whereabouts, please call the Fairfield Police Department at (618) 842-2151.

    _____________________________________________

    This case is local for me. As I was reading about it when it happened, I realized I had gone to high school with both her parents. I didn't realize they had a child together. The dad is not the man that mom is married to now. Also, dad is a registered sex offender who lives in Oklahoma.

    I think it's telling that she wiped her phone clean. She must have been communicating with someone she didn't want her parents to know about. She has a boyfriend and many have accused him, but he claims he doesn't know where she is or what happened to her.

    Well, she obviously didn't run with the boyfriend .

    It's possible she met someone on line who offered to "help". Ya know, take her away from that unhappy home.

    It's unlikely she's alive if a predator got to her.

    Another interesting piece of info. Someone posted this on Websleuths recently. Of course, WS removed it for...well, I don't really know why. But I still have it because I have an email subscription to the thread. The person claims to have reported this to the family and to the Fairfield PD but they say they've already questioned the dad and didn't find anything. They also claim that Megan has never met her birth father. I'm pretty sure she is in Evansville, Indiana, which would be about an hour away from Fairfield.

    __________________

    Before I begin, I should clarify and say I'm speculating here, but I have good reason behind my speculation.

    Back in the winter of 2013 (Nov/Dec) I was working on a Monday night and it was super cold and it was late in the shift. Everyone had began their sidework and chores for closing work. In comes a young girl with 2 adults, a male and female. Both male and female were about 5'8 or so, female had dishwater blonde hair, Oklahoma I.D., certain her name was Angela, but my memory fails me on her last name. I think she was born in the 70s and was wearing glasses. The male, approximately the same height, blonde hair, blue eyes, looked like a junkie (Beavis) Oklahoma I.D. and this guy I remember his name as John Nichols, because I wrote it down on an envelope inside my server book as I walked away. (It read longer on the I.D., bc he has like 4 names, but I was able to remember John and Nichols because I have a husband named John, and my mother-in-law's last name is Nichols.

    You are probably wondering why I was being so vigilant... The younger female, who I learned later was Megan Nichols, (When she came up missing I saw her flyer online and the story with her dad. His pic was on there too, and when I seen their pictures together on the same screen, I became cold.) She looked like she was 13 or 14 years old, taller, slouched over, but she was dressed like an escort. She could not show me an I.D., but it's a family place so they ordered her a Coke. The adults had shots and they left me money to pay for their tab which ended up being $10 less than what they owed. I never forget someone who stiffs me, mark my words. I was infuriated because I figured they were her parents and they allowed her to dress like that. I wanted to call the police. I really wished I had called the police! While they were out smoking a cigarette, before they stiffed me, I was able to run out back and take a look at the parking lot. I saw a small older-style body pick up. Think old-school Ford Ranger that was more squared off, than rounded. I want to say it was dark blue or black, but it was really dark back there.

    I have explained all this stuff, and everything else that comes into my memory about running into them back then to Fairfield Police, and I've even called the Center for Missing and Exploited Children hotline a few times. I've heard from Megan's mother and Fairfield P.D. that Megan has NEVER ONCE met her dad in person, and Fairfield P.D. has also told me that "unfortunately, there isn't much we can do with this information at this time. We've already picked him up for questioning."

    I'm 200% sure this Angela broad and her bio dad know where she is!
    This is driving me insane! I had to put this out here, Websleuths!!! I feel like several things aren't being looked into and they should be investigating the hell out of it.

    She wouldn't this this....but she obviously did. sounds a little like denial, it's not like she was forced to write that note or anything.

    That's kind of what I think, too. "She's never met her bio father." Um, are you SURE?

    I will vouch that the bio dad does kinda look like Beavis.

    Don't know how they're related-assuming they would be with the same last name- but he has an Angela Nichols on his friends...but wouldn't she remember if the last name was the same, unless she just didn't look.

    I'm not so sure. If the person on WS really did see them together in that scenario, isn't it possible that she contacted bio dad, left to live with him and then ended up in a bad place. If she was dressed like a prostitute, he could be pimping her out. He's a sex offender and there had to be a reason why they kept her from him.

    This gives me the heebie jeebies.

    At one point, right after she went missing, the dad had a post on FB about how everyone should check out the boyfriend, and that the local police were protecting him because he is related to one of them. But it's gone now (or else, FB just doesn't want to show it to me).

    I don't know what to think. Most of the time, I would say it doesn't look good. But I think there's a chance she could still be alive somewhere.

    From Megan's boyfriend's page:


    Brodey Ian
    July 17, 2014 ?

    Okay, this has gone on long enough. It has been two weeks of you people, I mean, adults, tearing into my life, following me around, and checking on me at all times. Maybe you should realize that I had nothing to do with this and that I have nothing to hide. If you want to waste your time driving to my place of work just to see if I am there, at least come in and buy something. Sorry I am not the person you are looking for, sorry I am not on video as she withdrew her money and ran from her family. It's nice to find out how easily it is to get people to follow you with your insane accusations. It's nice to see people that seem to have more knowledge about what I have done than I do. I think it's about time you take responsibility for your actions that caused her to run instead of placing ridiculous amounts of blame on me. This is the first time I have spoken up to defend myself. I shouldn't even have to defend myself if I am not involved. Too bad there are people out there that have caused me to think otherwise. Use your time doing something constructive and mildly useful instead of ripping into my life trying to find something that is not there. Thanks.

    I really don't think he did it, though I wonder what information he has about her home life.

    I just remembered something...Bio Dad has a photo of him and Megan together on his Facebook! So if mom is saying that they never met, it's not true.

    well, this is the girl who wouldn't do something like this...I don't think I'm trusting everything the mom says. wonder the reason she wanted to leave but the mom just doesn't want to say how horrible living with her was. speculating, of course. something just seems off, and I didn't even go to bed last night and I can smell something's up lol

    I think the opposite may be true. I get the vibe that she was a good girl- involved in school and church activities, not a party girl. I wonder if someone (maybe bio-dad, or maybe someone she was communicating with online) showed her a bit of the other side and she wanted to go wild, so she left. If that makes any sense. I think her mom is in denial, or maybe she honestly can't fathom that her daughter could have been living on the other side.

    They met one time and then met secret where I work. The lady that was with them is not Angela Nichols. She did not have the same name as Mr. Nichols when I asked for I.D. I said her name was Angela, just taking a wild guess... Her name is not in fact Angela, but I am able to identify, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the lady that was with them from Facebook. The authorities are aware.

    Websleuths also took down our psychic prediction as well.

    I posted the same story on a missing flyer on FB, and a few days later, apparently someone else claimed to have spotted her in Nampa, Idaho on February 13. I sent a screen shot of that to the authorities as well.

    No, just from waiting on them and being very nosy by carding them.

    A waiter does not forget when he gets stiffed and the table doesn't leave enough cash to cover their whole bill.

    Fair point. I'm sure I'd remember someone if they stiffed me too.

    Do you think it definitely was them/her?
