Amanda Tusing

Real Names: Amanda Renee Tusing
Nicknames: Mandy
Location: Jonesboro, Arkansas
Date: June 15, 2000


Details: On June 15, 2000, Amanda Tusing vanished after leaving her fiance's house at around 11:30 p.m. in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Just a few hours later, her car was found abandoned along Arkansas Highway 18, 5 miles east of St. Francis Bridge. Three days later, Amanda's body was discovered in a rain-swollen ditch; there was no sign of sexual assault and, although police believe she was suffocated and thrown in the ditch, the medical examiner could not confirm that.
Suspects: Detectives believe the killer was a sort of stranger that Amanda did not know. They believe that a man impersonating a police officer pulled her over, lured her into his car and near the Big Bay Ditch, where he murdered her. They believe this man could be a serial killer who has done this before, judging by the lack of evidence found at the crime scene, but this has yet to be determined as rain may have washed away crucial evidence at the crime scene.
Extra Notes: This case was not featured on ​Unsolved Mysteries​. Amanda's murder was documented on the show Haunting Evidence.
