Circumstances: Robin, a former Will County deputy sheriff, was last seen when she and her father waved at each other as their cars passed on a rural Will County road in Beecher, Illinois on October 4, 1990. Her vehicle was recovered 11 hours later by police in south suburban Harvey, Illinois. Her keys were still in the ignition inside the locked car. A nearby resident saw the vehicle dropped off around 10:00 p.m. by two men in what was described as a tow truck. Around 3:00 a.m. police were called to the scene by another resident who reported that someone was trying to break into the car. Robin’s camera was also inside the car. Three days later her purse was located three blocks away from the car’s location. Abram’s wallet and credit cards were gone.
Her family believes her disappearance was somehow tied to her job with the Will County Sheriff’s Department. She was hired there in January 1988, and, according to a civil rights lawsuit she filed in late 1989, she had a five-month affair with a married officer. The officer harassed her for a year and orchestrated her firing, the lawsuit claimed. The first hearing for the lawsuit was scheduled for October 22, 1990, 18 days after she disappeared.
