Barbara Jean Aleksivich (née Jones) was a young adult who disappeared from New York in 1973.

Disappearance

Barbara was last seen with her husband at the local Elks lodge nearby Gansevoort and Williams Street in Bath, New York. For reasons unknown, Barbara decided to head home early, leaving her husband at the lodge. She began to walk the two blocks to their home in the 100 block of East William Street, however never arrived and has never been heard of since.

Frederick C. Bush

Following Barbara's disappearance, a local man, Frederick C. Bush was convicted of murdering another woman and burning her body. Authorities believe he may have been responsible for Barbara's disappearance, with her being his first victim. However, there is insufficient evidence, beyond circumstance, to charge him.

In October 2020, it was announced that Bush was not involved with her disappearance. Additionally, Richard William Davis was named as a possible suspect.
