Mother of Triplets Disappears- Police Notified 84 years Later

Agnes Fults of Kimberly, Idaho, gave birth to three daughters in 1934. Josephine, Julene, and Joyce Fults joined their older sister Mabel and father Alton and made the family locally famous. The triplets were followed by local newspapers as they grew up. But Agnes disappeared from the public record in 1939. Agnes' sister Martha Hagerman took charge of her four nieces, and moved them to Tennessee in 1940, but then returned to Idaho in 1949.

The case of Agnes Fults' disappearance was brought to light when Julene's granddaughter Marsha Trotter and Mabel's granddaughter Rebecca Hardesty met through and learned they were second cousins. They were both looking for any record of their great-grandmother Agnes after 1939. They knew from their grandmothers' recollections that their mother had simply disappeared, and they weren't supposed to talk about it, ever. The family story was that Agnes abandoned her family, but the rumor mill in Kimberly had it that Agnes was killed and buried in a potato field. There was no missing person's report ever filed. Trotter and Hardesty recently contacted Kimberly police, and they are opening an investigation, which will include the use of ground-penetrating radar on the empty plot where the Fults home once stood. Read the fascinating story of an 84-year-old mystery at KTVB.  -via Strange Company
