Missing Denise Ruth Fagot
Fagot, circa 1989
Missing Since 03/02/1989
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 11/28/1966 (54)
Age 22 years old
Height and Weight 5'5, 115 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A white sweatshirt with a logo imprinted on the front and maroon sweatpants with the USC Trojans logo embroidered on the thigh.
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Brown hair, hazel eyes. Fagot's hair was permed at the time she disappeared in 1989. She has a small scar on her left knee and her upper front tooth is discolored. Fagot's ears are pierced. Her nickname is Niecey.
Authorities went to the apartment to investigate and found the front door open. The sliding glass door inside the residence was open a few inches as well, though it was a cold day. Police believe the door may have been forced open.
A single muddy footprint was found on top of the air conditioning unit next to the sliding door, and the closet door in Daniel's bedroom was off its track.
Police initially believed that Fagot had left voluntarily with her son, but they now suspect foul play was involved in their disappearances. None of Fagot or Daniel's clothing or personal items appeared to be missing. Daniel's car seat and diaper bag had been left behind, and Fagot's vehicle was found parked undisturbed in its assigned space.
Fagot had paid all of their utility bills for the month of March 1989 and they did not plan to travel. It is not known who apparently broke into their residence; Fagot and Daniel have never been seen again.
Fagot moved to Lancaster not long before her disappearance; she had broken up with Daniel's father and wanted to be closer to her family.
Daniel's father lived in Orange County, California at the time of the disappearances. He was interviewed by police about their cases. Ten years later, he took a lie detector test about Daniel and Fagot's cases and failed. He has never been arrested in connection with his son and Fagot's disappearances, due to a lack of evidence.
Fagot and Daniel's cases remain unsolved.
