Other Convictions of A Suspect

Mills was convicted of attempted rape. And he was released from prison in 1975. This was a year before Adams disappeared. At the time she went missing, he was out on bail awaiting trial. It was for the rape of a teenage girl. He was convicted and received probation and a suspended sentence in that case. Mills had later convictions for receiving stolen property, escape, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Another woman associated with Mills, 21-year-old Crystal Horan, disappeared from her St. Louis, Missouri apartment in July 1985. Horan lived next door to Mills. And he was investigated as a possible suspect in her disappearance. But there was insufficient evidence to charge him. Her remains were found in a shallow grave in Jefferson County, Missouri in 1988. But they weren’t identified until 2011. No one has been charged in her case.
