In this episode we discuss the case of Molly Anne Frankamont, who vanished in 2013 after renting a room from Glenn Griggs. Despite Glenn's criminal past and Molly's fears, police were slow to act. Glenn's death during a police encounter in 2014 left the case unresolved. Molly’s family continues to seek  justice and answers for Molly.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety at 408-730-7101.  00:00 Welcome to Moms and Mysteries 01:37 Case Introduction: The Disappearance of Molly Anne Franquemont 02:21 Molly's Early Life and Family Background 04:49 Molly's Move to Sunnyvale and Struggles 06:18 Living with Glenn Griggs: Red Flags and Fears 07:58 Molly Goes Missing: Initial Reactions and Concerns 11:09 The Search for Molly: Family and Police Efforts 12:24 Glenn Griggs' Criminal History and Suspicious Behavior 17:23 Molly's Family Takes Action 25:19 Glenn Griggs' Death and Its Aftermath 28:22 Molly's Legacy and Family's Hope for Closure 31:28 Final Thoughts and Listener Engagement Thank you to this week’s sponsors!

In October of 2018, David Carter was reported missing by his family. He was later found dismembered along a highway 100 miles away from his home. It didn’t take police long to look into his girlfriend, Tammy Williams, but by the time they had enough evidence to charge her, she had gone on the run. She is currently the only female on the U.S. Marshals' top 15 Most Wanted Fugitive List. Tamera “Tammy” Renee Williams is 5’5 and weighs about 190 pounds. She has a large rose tattoo running from her shoulder down her left arm and may have blonde or black hair. She is an experienced world traveler and has relatives in Atlanta and New York. Tammy Williams should be considered armed and dangerous.  Anyone with information about Tammy Williams’ whereabouts is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals 24-hour tip line at 1-877-WANTED2 or send information via the USMS Tips App.  Thank you to this week’s sponsors!
