The Trail Went Cold – Episode 267 – Elizabeth Eisel & Katherine Lowery

February 1, 1999. DeSoto County, Mississippi. While living in a farmhouse with her two children and her boyfriend, 27-year old Katherine Lowery vanishes without explanation. Months later, Katherine’s boyfriend takes the children and abruptly moves to Wyoming, but he winds up being arrested when Katherine’s daughter accuses him of sexual abuse. It turns out the boyfriend has been living under an alias and his real name is Steven DeLoge. Investigators soon learn that Steven’s 23-year old half-sister, Elizabeth Eisel, also vanished under suspicious circumstances in Bellevue, Washington in September 1985. Even though Steven goes to prison for multiple counts of sexual assault, he fails to provide any answers about what actually happened to Elizabeth and Katherine. On this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we explore a truly bizarre story involving two women who went missing in different states over 13 years apart.

If you have any information on the disappearance of Elizabeth Eisel, please contact the Bellevue Police Department at (425) 452-6917. If you have any information about the disappearance of Katherine Lowery, please contact the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department at (662) 469-8500.
