Saint Louis Child Murders of 1993

Angie Marie Housman was the first girl in the Saint Louis area to disappear in the Fall of 1993. She seemed to vanish into thin air after she got off her school bus in Saint Ann, Missouri. Her bus dropped her off up the street only a few houses from where she lived with her mom, Diane Bone and her step-father, Ron bone, yet she never made it home and no one witnessed what happened.

Angie Marie Houseman was only nine years old when she disappeared November 18. She was in the fourth grade and liked school. From her school bus stop, Angie had to walk just eight or nine houses to her own home. No one saw anything that fateful day.

Nine days later a deer hunter found her naked body duct taped to a tree in the Busch A. Wildlife nature preserve. Angie had been sexually molested. Yet, she died a slow and horrible death from exposure. Angie's killer remains unidentified.

Cassidy Senter was the second girl to disappear in the Saint Louis area. Cassidy vanished 13 days after Angie. Cassidy Senter was walking to a friendís home after school. She was 10 years old. The only sign of her disappearance was her personal protection alarm which was activated and found on the ground.

For a while parents living in the Saint Louis area were fearful that perhaps a child serial killer was living in the shadows. Cassidy Senter was 10 years old when she disappeared. Her friend lived less than three blocks from her house where she lived with her mom Rhonda Senter.

Cassidy Senterís badly bruised body was discovered eight days later in a Saint Louis alley wrapped inside a comforter. Cassidy fought hard to keep Thomas Brooks her kidnapper from raping her. My own daughter was born the same day they found Cassidy Senter's body on December 9, 1993.

Cassidyís killer, Thomas Brooks was arrested February 3, 1993 and confessed to killing Cassidy Senter. He was later convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of Cassidy Senter. He died in prison at the age of 33 from a long illness.

If you have any information on the identity of Angie Marie Housmanís killer, please contact the St. Ann Police at 314-428-6868 or go to the Saint Louis Major Case Squad website for more information.
