Connie Warner - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Possible Victim?

Connie Warner

Connie Warner, 41, was abducted from Zachary home in Oak Shadows subdivision in August of 1992. There was apparently no forced entry, but her home showed signs of struggle. Her badly decomposed body was found in a ditch near Capitol Lake two weeks after her disappearance. The case remains unsolved.

Even before Derrick Todd Lee was linked to the murders of Green, DeSoto, Pace, Kinamore, Colomb and Yoder, Zachary Police long suspected he may be connected to Warner and another Zachary woman, Randi Mebruer. Both lived in the same subdivision off La. 964. While Warner was killed in 1992, Mebruer disappeared in 1998. Her body has never been found.

Warner's daughter now lives in the Lake Area, in Moss Bluff. Here's what Tracy Bryan had to say to 7News in a May 26th interview: "I had come home from a weekend out, and my mother was just not in the house; and she couldn't see to drive at night, so it was just very unusual for her to be out. My mother reported a peeping Tom about a week before she disappeared, and there was a person about a week before she disappeared that matched this guy's [Lee] description that was in the area watching the house." Bryan says there are some similarities between her mother's mother and Pam Kinamore's slaying, but she couldn't give further details.

    Submit your question to news@kplctv.com. Question: Do I really need a will in Louisiana? What is the downside to not having one? First, it is important to differentiate between a living will and a last will and testament. A living will is effective only when a person becomes terminally ill or has an irreversible condition. A traditional or “last will” is not effective until the testator – the author of the will – passes away. The two types of traditional will...More >>
