Part 2: Pregnant, Missing, Dead: The Life and Death of Nicole Cearo

nicole cearo

In part 1 of this series, we introduced you to twenty year old Nicole Cearo, who went missing in Seattle in 2009. One of the many, if not the biggest challenge facing this investigation: police have searched, but never found her body.

In 2010 the Seattle Police Department went public with Nicole’s case, though the details were scarce given the nature of their investigation. The Department laid out a short but definitive path of breadcrumbs leading in one, specific direction, alleging Nicole was killed by her boyfriend. He has never been charged.

After that, the case seemed to go cold and the media never talked about Nicole Cearo again. But that doesn’t mean she was simply forgotten as if she never existed in the first place. In fact, it’s downright haunting to think of a young woman, allegedly murdered in your city, whose body, as a result, is allegedly hidden in your city.

It becomes outrageous and painful to think of a family who has no idea what happened to their daughter, granddaughter, sister, cousin, and niece, why it happened, and where her body is. It is a devastation most of us will never be able to grasp or fully appreciate.

So what happened to Nicole Cearo?
