CIrcumstances

Kristine Kupka was last seen leaving her home. It was located in the 200 block of Westminister Avenue. In turn, the block was found in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. This incident occurred on October 24, 1998 at approximately 12:30 P.N. Her roommate said that Kupka’s boyfriend, Darshanand “Rudy” Persaud, arrived at their house shortly beforehand. Persaud seemed nervous, according to her roommate.

Kristine Kupka was five months pregnant with his child at the time of her disappearance. She left a message on her sister’s answering machine before she and Persaud left, saying that she was going to view his new apartment in the borough of Queens and would return home shortly. Kupka has never been heard from again. She did not have a coat, any personal belongings or very much money on her when she disappeared.

Persaud and Kupka had a troubled relationship. He was her adjunct chemistry instructor at Baruch College in New York City, where she majored in philosophy. They began dating shortly after she completed his class and continued their relationship for five months.

Kupka became pregnant unexpectedly and told friends Persaud was not supportive of the pregnancy and had begged her to have an abortion. Her loved ones stated that she seemed frightened he would hurt her or their child, although she never stated he had threatened her.

As it turned out, Persaud was married and reportedly only told Kupka of his marital status after she learned about her pregnancy. (He was not married at the time the infant was conceived.) He initially denied that he could be the baby’s father, claiming he had had a “partial vasectomy,” but eventually backed down from that assertion.

According to Kupka’s family and friends, Persaud was angry and scared, telling Kupka his family would disown him if she carried their baby to term. He is a Guyanese immigrant and his father is a Hindu priest.

Kupka was looking forward to becoming a single mother and is described as an intelligent and strong-willed person. She had a 3.97 grade point average at Baruch College, founded the school’s Philosophy Club, and planned to attend law school and become a civil rights attorney, focusing on women’s issues.

Kupka supported herself by working as a server at a Jamaican restaurant in 1998, and lived frugally with five roommates. She had $7,000 in her savings account. She was due to graduate from Baruch College in January 1999. She missed her midterm examinations after her disappearance, as well as appointments with her midwife.

Kupka allegedly spoke to Persaud’s wife via telephone several times before she disappeared. According to her loved ones, Kupka said that she reached his wife after attempting to page Persaud. Kupka told his wife she did not want to disrupt the family, but she wanted Persaud to be a part of their child’s life and said that she worried about the baby’s emotional well-being if it did not have a relationship with both parents.

According to Kupka, Persaud’s wife became angry at him after learning about Kupka’s pregnancy. Kupka intended to name Persaud as the father on their child’s birth certificate. She also planned to ask him for financial support for the baby if it became necessary.

Kristine Kupka’s story will be continued in Part two. (coming soon).
