Circumstances of Disappearance
Light was last seen when her mother-in-law dropped her off in the parking lot of her apartment at about 02:00 am.
Earlier that evening, she had gone to get groceries to make Thanksgiving dinner for her 3-year-old daughter. After that Lorraine went out with friends.
When her sister came home at around 03.00 A.M., to the apartment she’d shared with Lorraine, she wasn’t there. In the kitchen, the sister saw grocery bags on the floor and a turkey defrosting in the sink.
The answer machine was blinking, and when the sister played the message, she was confused. The caller said it was Lorraine, but it didn’t sound like her, saying she had met someone and was going to Mexico for a few days. Her sister knew Lorraine would not have left, especially on Thanksgiving.
When Lorraine didn’t show up by Thanksgiving evening, her sister got concerned. She called police, and Harris County Precinct 4 Constables responded and took the report.
Like hundreds of other missing persons cases, at some point, the case was transferred to the Harris County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Division, and the records have been lost.
Foul play is possible.
