Mary Shotwell Little was known as the "Case of the Missing Bride". Mary was last seen on October 14, 1965, walking to her 1965 Mercury Comet in the Lenox Square Mall parking lot in Atlanta Georgia. She hasn't been seen or heard from since. Mary recently married Roy H Little Jr. The couple had only been married for six weeks before her disappearance. Roy went on a business trip to La Grange Ga on October 14, 1965. Mary had agreed to have dinner with a co-worker that night at the Piccadilly Café at Lennox Square Mall. Her friend said she seemed in good spirits and talked about a party that she and Roy were giving the next night upon his return.

On October 15, 1965, when Mary did not call or show up for work, her co-workers got worried. Mary's boss called her home and could not find Mary. Eventually, her car was discovered in the Lennox Square Mall parking lot with some sinister clues. The Atlanta Police Department had many theories about what could have happened to Mary but none of these theories ever panned out and fifty-three years later we still have more questions than answers. Grab a chair, a glass of sweet tea and listen to Southern Gone as we delve into the "Case of the Missing Bride".

If you have any information about this case please contact the Atlanta Police Department 404-853-3434.
