Latest Developments

Tracy Ann Byrd’s mother, Jean, had stopped seeing Greenwald before her disappearance. They had had a troubled relationship. And once, in 1980, Greenwald kidnapped her at knifepoint. In November 1984, Greenwald was charged with first-degree murder in Jean’s death. He admitted to the killing and pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He was never connected with Tracy’s disappearance, however, and it is not known if he was involved.

Greenwald committed suicide in his prison cell before he was sentenced in March 1986. He overdosed on some medication.

The runaway theory is now considered an unlikely explanation for Tracy’s disappearance. She was close to her mother and her loved ones believe she would have returned home for her mother’s funeral if she had been able to.

Greenwald was long considered a suspect in Tracy’s disappearance. But investigators no longer believe he was involved. Police have another suspect, a Bucks County, Pennsylvania man, but he has not been publicly named. Tracy’s case remains unsolved. Foul play is suspected.
