Unsolved Cases: Terry Slaugenhoupt
In 1991, the 28-year-old returned from a date, went back out and was never seen again.
Terry Slaugenhoupt, 28, came home from a date to the East Liberty apartments vicinity of the 1400 block of North St. Clair Street that she shared with a roommate.
There are two versions of what happened next. One is that she got a phone call and told her roommate that she was going out again. The other is that she told the roommate that she was going out to make a phone call.
No one knows who the call was to or from or where she was headed—and two decades ago, tracking calls wasn't as easy as it is today.
That was the last time that Terry was seen, and she was never heard from again. She would be 50 years old today.
At the time of her disappearance, on Jan. 6, 1991, she was 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighed between 105 and 120 pounds. She had long, curly brown hair, hazel eyes, a scar on her forehead (at her hairline) and pierced ears.
Anyone with information regarding Slaugenhoupt's case is asked to call the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Missing Persons Unit at 412-323-7141.
