Deanie Peters vigil: "Someone's got to talk" | News
ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) - Tuesday marked the 32 anniversary of the disappearance of Deanie Peters. No one knows what happened to her, but her memory was kept alive at a gathering Tuesday evening attended by family, friends, and former classmates.
The vigil was held at St. Matthew Lutheran Church on Cascade Road. It is the church the Peters family attended when they lived in West Michigan. A tree there is the only memorial for Deanie Peters.
Detectives are still looking for leads and some that worked on the case 30 years ago also hope for a resolution.
"It's sad. It's heartbreaking, you know? All that time and money we spent and why can't we find her? Someone's gotta talk, someone's gotta help us. This might help out. Let's hope," said former detective, Ken Kleinheksel.
Deanie's former classmate Dell Todd shared his sentiments, "It's a big part of being here, to stand up and say, she was our friend, what would you do for your friend?"
Almost two years ago, WZZM 13 launched its own investigation to find new leads in the case. To that end we created the exclusive Deanie Peters: WZZM 13 Investigates Facebook page. Several family members, friends, former classmates, and concerned citizens post their thoughts and theories about the case.
