Unsolved Murders-Angie Dickens, Shannon Green, and Dewayne Bell

Owensboro, Kentucky

Angie Dickens, Shannon Green, and Dewayne Bell disappeared within weeks of each other.

The body of 23-year-old Mary Ethel Dickens of Owensboro was discovered on October 2, 1986, nearly three months after she was reported missing.

So far, no arrests have been made in what police believe was a murder case.  Mary Ethel Dickens was called "Angie" by those who knew her and she was one of three people who mysteriously vanished that summer.

Her body was discovered in a cornfield on Lower River Road, 2 1/2 miles West of Owensboro.   Due to the condition of the body a definite cause of death could not be determined. As of this date, the case is still pending.

Green and Bell have never been found.

Detectives are requesting help from the community or anyone who might have information on the Death Investigation of Mary Ethel Dickens. Anyone with information can contact the case officers Sgt. Timothy Bailey, or Lt. Sean McKinney with the Kentucky State Police Post 16 Henderson, Kentucky at (270)-826-3312 or e-mail them at Sgt. Timothy Bailey, or Lt. Sean McKinney.

Police at that time focused much of their investigation on one man, John Reneer but Reneer claims an old taped confession of the third victim, Dewayne Bell proves he killed the other two.

Investigators say if that is the case, the question still remains, what happened to Dewayne Bell?

If you have any information in this case call Owensboro Police.
