After leaving work as a cosmetics saleswoman at Saks Fifth Avenue Nancy drove to the Boulevard Mall to buy shoes for her daughter. When she didn't arrive home, her husband, Norman, a lieutenant colonel stationed at Nellis Air Force Base, searched for her. He reported her missing to police when he couldn't find her. Her body was discovered the next morning as Nancy Menke had been kidnapped and brutally murdered in one of the most notorious murder cases in Las Vegas. As of 2016 the killer remains behind bars for this horrible crime.
