There is a $100,000.00 Bounty
the safe return of Becky Marie (Kraemer) Marzo, or information
leading to the the recovery of her remains and the conviction
of the person or persons responsible for her disappearance
Circumstances of Becky's
Becky (Kraemer) Marzo had just started a
new job. It was one of several things she was doing to start
her life over again after her recent divorce. Becky seemed
to be on the right track, living with her parents, going back
to school, and working full time at a job she really enjoyed.
She was 21 when she met Carl,
a charming man 11 years her senior who frequented her place
of employment. About 6 months after they met, Becky moved
in with Carl. Their 2 year relationship would start off
as pleasant and full of promise, but soon, Becky began
showing signs of domestic abuse. Co-workers
later told family members that Becky often came to work
bruised and depressed, and on May 2, 2003, Becky pressed
Battery charges against Carl (REF: Wisconsin
Circuit Court Access Case
The case was dismissed without prejudice on December 10,
2003, when Becky failed to show up for court.
Becky was last seen
entering her residence at 3160-3162 N. 5th street, Milwaukee,
WI, in the late evening hours of December 13, 2003 or
early morning hours of December 14, 2003. The
night of her disappearance, she had been at Conversations
Bar located at 3515 W. Villard Ave in Milwaukee, WI, with
her girlfriends. Her girlfriend dropped her off at home,
where Becky lived with her boyfriend Carl Rodgers.
He had been texting and calling her all night demanding that
she come home. Carl was the last
person known to have seen her.
There is absolutely no trace of Becky Marzo
after December 13, 2003. After her girlfriends dropped
her off at the apartment that Becky and Carl shared, she
was never seen or heard from again by anyone.
She never picked up her last check from work.
She never returned another phone call or
email from her many family members and friends.
been no activity on her social security number.
license expired and was never renewed.
None of her bills have been paid, other
than her cell phone bill, which Carl was paying for. He
had her cell phone in his posession and was using it.
even though Carl was using the phone, he did not delete
Becky's voice from the personal greeting, so callers, including
myself, still heard Becky's voice on the message even though
Carl was the one who was using the phone and paying the
bill each month. Her family, her friends, her co-workers
- we all left voice mail for her and wondered why she never
called us back.
I can't help but ponder, in retrospect,
whether he was listening to our messages, or just deleting
them, unheard? We will never know.
What we do know, is that
after her girlfriends dropped her off, no one but Carl
ever saw or heard from her, ever again. Becky has simply
vanished without a trace. And he told no one.
He never reported her missing, and over a year later, when
questioned, he gave several different stories on
several different dates. Each story was wilder than the
last. One of his stories was that armed men invaded the
house and took her at gunpoint to work in a strip club
- basically, that she was kidnapped for human trafficking
- and yet he never reported her missing. Then, after all
this time had passed and he gave the story about the
armed men, he stated they also stole some of his personal
property, and promptly filed a back insurance claim for
money to replace the supposedly stolen items. This was
over a year later! If that happened, why wouldn't you report
it to the police or tell someone, anyone? But that wasn't
his only story either. It changed several times. We will
never know which one, if any, approached the truth, however,
becuase Carl committed suicide and took any information
he may have had about Becky's disappearance to the grave
Becky's family misses her very much and has
worked endlessly find out what happened to
her since she went missing on December 13 2003, just three
days after she failed to show up for a domestic violence
court date for an assault that Carl had allegedly committed
Her family is desperate to speak with
anyone who can give them any information about her whereabouts
and what happened to her. We are turning to the public
for assistance in solving this case. Somewhere there is
someone who holds the key to helping us locate Becky. Is
