Details of Disappearance
Volansky was last seen by her roommate between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. on March 15, 1985. She had been drinking that day, and asked her roommate to drive her to the grocery store. When her roommate refused, Volansky decided to hitchhike, and and left their Mims, Florida residence on foot. She has never been heard from again.

John Brennan Crutchley, the so-called Vampire Rapist, is also considered a suspect in Volansky's case. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1986 for kidnapping and raping a woman in Orlando, Florida. He drained half her blood and drank it. Volansky's photo identification card was found at his work office, and he admitted he'd picked her up hitchhiking about six months before his November 1985 arrest.

According to Crutchley, he was high on marijuana that day, and after Volansky began talking about motorcycle gangs and making "obnoxious" demands for alcohol and drugs, he ordered her out of his car. He found her wallet and identification on the seat of his car the next day, took them to his office, and later threw away the wallet and wrapped the card in a plastic bag.

Volansky's disappearance remains unsolved. Foul play is suspected in her case.
