1 Betsy Langjahr was Declared Dead
Betsy Langjahr was suspected to be the dead person when 41 years back, a decomposing body of a woman was found who was white and was somewhere between 16 to 20 years. The naked body of the victim was found close to Jonestown under a tarpaulin sheet. This was back in October 1973 and the police believed that the person had died two weeks before they discovered the body. They had then closed the case and it remained closed till recently when Betsy Langjahr was found alive, leading a life with her husband and kids.
At the time when the police discovered the body and suspected it to be Betsy’s, she was a runaway from home. Running away from home, she went into a rehabilitation centre as she was struggling with drug addiction. She later escaped from the rehabilitation centre too. Today, she is living happily with her husband and kids. She does not wish to disclose her location due to some reasons.
