Jennifer Sophia "Firecracker" Marteliz was a child who went missing in 1982. Foul play is suspected in her case.
At 3pm on November 15, 1982, Marteliz was last seen by a friend walking from school to her family home.
The primary suspect in Marteliz's disappearance is Thomas Peter Welnicki, a friend of the Marteliz family.
When questioned by law enforcement regarding Firecracker's disappearance, Thomas claimed to have a vision of her kidnapping. Wherein she was abducted by a man in his forties with a criminal history and a blonde man in his twenties who she knew and trusted.
Law enforcement drew a connection between the blonde man in Thomas's vision and Thomas himself and therefore believe his vision was a veiled confession. Thomas denies this and has never been formally charged in connection with her disappearance.
