The Missing Carla Vincentini

The Missing
Carla Vicentini
Case#: 06014648
Essex County

Carla Vicentini was 22 years old when she was last seen leaving the Adega Bar & Grill located on Ferry Street in Newark, New Jersey on February 10, 2006 at 2:30 in the morning. She may have been intoxicated and may have been with a white male named “Antonio.” He was described as being in his thirties, 5’8” and 200 lbs with blue eyes, short salt and pepper hair and an unshaved beard, wearing a black t-shirt. Carla struck up a conversation with the man as she was in the bar with her friend/roommate that she had just moved in with. Carla told her friend that she was going outside to the man’s car to view a photograph and to talk. The friend told her she would meet her at home. She has not been seen since. Carla is a white female, 5’07”, 140 lbs with blonde hair and brown eyes. She was born in the country of Brazil, coming to the United States on January 19, 2006 as an exchange student on a Cultural Exchange Program. She was planning on staying for a few months. She saved up her money to come to the U.S and she was very happy about the opportunity. As part of this program, Carla was assigned to work at a White Castle restaurant and live in a small motel room with several other women in the program, but she became unhappy with the arrangement, so she then moved out and changed jobs. She was an engineering student at the time she went missing, newly living with her friend in Newark’s Ironbound neighborhood, and had just started a job at the Mediterranean Manor.
She was last seen wearing a white sleeveless shirt, a blue Hugo Boss brand jacket, a Mormaii sports wristwatch on her left wrist, a large silver ring on her ring finger and two silver rope necklaces, one with a pedant, blue or white jeans and high-heeled brown ankle boots. She has multiple body piercings, including a silver ball in her navel, a silver ball in her tongue, several ear piercings, and many tattoos including a tribal design on her lower back, a tattoo of a tiger on her stomach, a red and yellow chameleon on her left hip, and a tattoo of a gray angel on her back. Her case is classified as a kidnapping. She has previously fractured the right side of her collar bone. Her nickname is Carlinha. The man “Antonio” has not been identified, he and Carla were seen “drinking and talking” before leaving together, which is unusual because her native language is Brazilian Portuguese and she speaks limited English, but this man was reported to not speak Portuguese. He appeared “quiet and sullen.” He is considered a person of interest. 
It is believed that Carla had made it back to her residence on Ferry Street, which is near the restaurant she was last seen at, because her jacket, wallet and passport were found there. But there were no other signs of where Carla had gone afterwards.
Several days after Carla went missing, someone called her boss’s cell phone and screamed for help. This caller had not been identified and it is unclear whether the call was related to the case.
Carla’s mother believes she was murdered since she never went more than a couple of days without getting in touch with her family. She stated that someone destroyed Carla’s dream of getting the chance to know a different country.

This is a sketch of the man last seen with Carla.

Her case remains unsolved.

If you have any further information, please contact the Newark Police Department at 973-733-4336.

The Missing
Robert William Dornbach
Case #: 05-0295451
Camden County

(Age progression to 29)

(Age progression photo)

   Robert William Dornbach, better known as “Bobby,” was 17 years old when he was last seen at his family’s residence at 217 Cumberland Street in Gloucester City, New Jersey on November 27, 2005. He invited his girlfriend over for dinner, and he told his mother he was going out to get a pizza and would be back in 20 minutes, but he did not return. 
At the time of his disappearance, Bobby was on probation for an unspecified offence, however on a different site it was stated that he may have been involved in Controlled Dangerous Substances. He was also suspended from school for missing classes at the time.
 Robert is a white male, 5’08” in height, 150-170 lbs, brown hair and brown eyes. He has a scar on his right knee, a tattoo of “D BACH” on his left arm, a tattoo of a cross on his ankle and a pierced lower lip. He wears a silver necklace. He has relatives in the Atlantic City area. 
His mother claims it is uncharacteristic of him to be out of touch with his family for so long, she seems to think Bobby met with someone who caused his disappearance and she is fairly certain he is deceased. She is still hoping for answers as to what happened to her son. 

If you have any further information, please contact the Gloucester City Police Department at 856-456-0900.

The Missing Jamie Seymour

The Missing
Jamie Diana Seymour
Case #: 2005-46160
Ocean County

Jamie Diane Seymour was 21 years old when she was last seen in Brick Township, New Jersey on July 22, 2005. She had moved out of her Jackson Township residence and was drifting from place to place. On July 22, she called her father and said she was heading to the Port Authority New York area. She has not been heard from since. Jamie’s father reported her missing on August 8. There has been some talk of the Long Island Serial Killer possibly being connected to this case on Websleuths, but there are no solid leads. According to Jamie’s sister, at the time of her disappearance, Jamie had a large lump on the left side of her neck due to thyroid issues. She needed surgery to have it removed at the time she vanished. Jamie also dyed her hair a lot, some colors include black, brown, and blonde. In 2013, her sister confirmed that the Brielle, NJ Jane doe (https://www.namus.gov/UnidentifiedPersons/Case#/2274 ) is NOT Jamie and her name has been added to the Doe’s exclusion list. 

If you have any further information, please contact the Brick Township Police Department at 732-262-1100.

The Murdered Carol Hill

The Murdered
Carol Hill
Cape May County, New Jersey

Carol Hill was 20 years old living at 2013 East Sergeant Street, Kensington, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when she decided to take a trip to the New Jersey Shore in June of 1970. On June 7, she was found raped and murdered under the roller coaster on Hunt’s Pier at the Wildwood Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey. She was found face up, strangled to death. The time of her discovery was 12:20 A.M. by the Wildwood Police Department while on routine patrol. They were scanning the area under the pier, known as “Lovers Lane” with a spotlight when Carol was discovered. Authorities said Carol had been struck by a heavy object on the left eye, with sand all over her face and in her mouth. Her head was pushed into the moist sand beneath her, and her arms, legs and neck were badly bruised. She also had bite marks on her neck. Carol was wearing a white short sleeved shirt and a skirt that had been pulled up around her waist, and her underpants were partially torn off. Investigators stated the motive was not robbery because she was found with a diamond ring on her right hand. Carol’s ultimate cause of death was “ligature strangulation and asphyxiation by sand stuffed into her mouth.”
About 90 feet from the body, a woman’s handbag was found filled with sand. It was carefully emptied and there were also two small pills of unknown origin inside. Working under a spotlight, the police screened scoop after scoop of sand from all around Carol’s body, and came across two more pills of the same size and type as the ones found in her handbag. They also came across a Public Service Stub and a baggage claims check in the area. The check led to a locker in the Public Service terminal and inside it they found a suitcase containing clothing and more of those same pills in a bottle containing a physician’s name. The physician was contacted about the pills and given a description of the murdered woman. Which is when he provided the name of Carol Hill, one of his patients. Police contacted Carol’s home and learned that she had yet to return from her Wildwood trip. Her father Carl was then notified and taken to the hospital where he positively identified her body. 
The Last contact Carol had with anyone was at the Bolero Bar at 3320 Atlantic Avenue, where she was seen speaking to an unknown male at approximately 9:00 P.M. This male was said to be slender looking, about 22-24 years old, 5’7” in height, with light brown hair, 150-160 pounds. 
There have been few suspects in Carol’s case, including the infamous Richard Cottingham, a serial killer that targeted young women in New York and New Jersey in the 1970’s -1980’s. Unfortunately, there have not been any solid leads to link him to Carol’s murder.
At the time, 2 men were taken into custody and admitted to driving Carol Hill to Wildwood, but they were cleared of any connection with her slaying. Their names are Wilburt Lauer and Robert Goodwin, and both men stated in separate interviews that they drove Carol Hill to the boardwalk, and dropped her off. Then they returned to Philadelphia where they remained until they were brought in for questioning. Both men have denied and involvement in the murder and no charges were filed against them.
There was a news article written around the time, stating police would like to speak to 2 other men who lived and worked in the Wildwood area who were heard saying that they knew the victim after she was found. Whether or not these men were ever located is unknown.
There was also interest in a 3rd male who was brought to attention by 2 Coast Guardsmen. They told police they had talked to a man in a local bar about a month prior and that he had told them he liked to “beat up girls and rip their underclothes.” The coast guardsmen thought little of his story until they read the details of Carol’s murder. Unfortunately, that man has not been identified either. 

Carol Hill’s brutal rape and murder remains unsolved.

If you have any further information, please contact the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit at 609-465-1135 or you can contact the tip line at 609-463-5323.

The Murdered Joyce Coleman

The Murdered 
Joyce Coleman
Morris County, NJ

Joyce Coleman was 28 years old living with her husband and her 14 month old son at 245 Bartley Road, Long Valley, Washington Township, Morris County, New Jersey. They had been residing there for the past two years. Joyce was six months pregnant with the couple’s second child. Her husband, Wayne Coleman worked as a supervisor for the Charter Bulk Service in Newark. On February 28, 1970, (some sources state it was the 27th,) upon returning home from a long day at 1:45 A.M, Wayne found his wife battered and sprawled out on the floor of the basement recreation room in their home. According to police, Wayne stated that his wife failed to answer the phone when he called from work shortly before leaving his job. Mr. Coleman found every room in his house ransacked except for his son’s bedroom, and his son was completely unharmed. He also discovered four of his shotguns, one rifle, a quantity of ammunition and two cameras were missing. Wayne was an avid skeet shooter.
Upon inspection of the home by police, they found no signs of forced entry. The Morris County Medical Examiner ruled Joyce’s cause of death; “multiple blunt injuries to the head, face and neck.” One unusual thing that was found, Joyce had cuts on her neck that were done post-mortem. 
Ultimately, the case was ruled a homicide and Joyce Coleman’s killer remains unknown.
