Trenton missing baby case for Melissa Diane McGuinn haunts lone investigator 24 years later | NJ.com

TRENTON — The trail appears to have gone completely cold, except for a lone investigator still working the case. Twenty-four years ago this morning, 7-month-old Melissa Diane McGuinn disappeared without a trace.

On that day back in 1988, a mentally handicapped housemate of Melissa’s mother first asked permission before taking the baby outside. When she returned with a neighbor shortly afterward, the baby was not with her.

A huge search ensued, and though police quickly determined that the housemate, Wanda Faye Reed, was responsible, the child’s body was never found. Reed initially said she threw Melissa into the Delaware River, but years later changed her story to maintain she sold the baby for $200 worth of drugs. Neither scenario could be trusted. Police later found that, due to Reed’s mental state, she could be led to say virtually anything.

In all the time that’s passed since that cold morning, the key question of what happened to Melissa has never come close to being answered.
