Last week the adoptive parents of Erica Parsons,Casey and Sandy Parsons, were arrested by federal agents on fraud charges. Erica has been missing from their Salisbury, North Carolina home since 2011 but the Parsonses have allegedly been collecting government benefits on Erica since that time.

The pair have been charged with 76 counts of various fraud charges stemming from Erica’s disappearance ranging from mail fraud to healthcare fraud among others. The pair was released and have been ordered to wear monitors.

Hopefully this will jar one of the two into telling authorities what really happened to Erica instead of the outrageous story that she went to live with her biological grandmother ‘Nan’. If I had to take a guess on who will crack first I would imagine it would be Sandy Parsons as Casey probably doesn’t feel like she did anything wrong.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Erica Lynn Parsons is asked to contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, 1st. Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Investigator Sara Benfield at 704-216-8739.

    It’s a start. I believe strongly that they belong in prison for her murder, but unless one of them cracks that probably isn’t going to happen. I hope they throw the book at them for the fraud at least. After all, the only thing Al Capone went down for was tax evasion.
