Details of Disappearance
McCown was last seen at a laundromat in the vicinity of the 1000 block of South E Street. While her clothes were either washing or drying, she went to her mother’s house and voiced concerns about a group of Hispanic boys who had been harassing her at the Laundromat. Initially Niqui’s family thought she was abducted from the laundromat but Richmond Police were able to rule that out based on a surveillance tape from a nearby store.
Her vehicle was located on November 3, 2001 in an apartment complex in Dayton, Ohio with the stereo and battery missing, the door lock being knocked in, the ignition switch tampered with, and her laundry still folded inside.

The police had questions for her fiancé, Bobby Webster. According to police, Bobby had begun acting very strangely in the days immediately following Marilyn’s disappearance. Instead of postponing the wedding, he cancelled it entirely, demanding a full refund from the reception hall. Bobby then tried to return his wedding band – also for cash – but the manager refused. Niqui had paid for the ring and her name was on the receipt. An argument ensued and, allegedly, nearly turned violent. Bobby had to be escorted from the store. Bobby said he needed the money to help find Niqui – to pay for flyers and a cell phone. Detectives asked Bobby to take a polygraph test. He refused at first, but later agreed to the test.

If Marilyn did drive to Dayton that Sunday afternoon, perhaps something tragic happened on the way. But how did her GMC Jimmy end up in the parking lot of her ex-boyfriend’s apartment complex? Was it simply an unbelievable coincidence? Some believe that it could have been placed there to throw off suspicion. That theory led Detectives right back to Bobby Webster – and his suspicious behavior following Marilyn’s disappearance. Police continue to follow up on other possible suspects while also keeping a close eye on Bobby Webster.

On April 15, 2005, the McCown family received information from a viewer of “Unsolved Mysteries” on the east coast that Niqui had been spotted. The claim has not been substantiated at this time.
