Details of Disappearance
Marjorie Luna was last seen in Greenacres, Florida in the afternoon of May 27th 1984. She went to the Greenacres Grocery to purchase cat food. She made the purchase at approximately 3:00 pm.
While many agencies state that Marjorie left the store after she made the purchase, it’s possible that she stayed until 6:00 pm at the store to play video games or that she walked to a local park afterwards. Marjorie was never seen again and she never returned home afterwards. Marjorie was discovered missing at 8:30 pm by her sister who told their mother of Marjorie’s absence.
Authorities immediately started to search for Marjorie after she was reported missing. They believed that Marjorie was the victim of foul play. After her disappearance, authorities located the turquoise body suite that she was wearing on that day in a swampy area near her home.
For a time, authorities believed that Marjorie’s neighbors, Willis and Charles Rambo were possibly responsible for her disappearance. Marjorie was said to have visited their residence several times and witnesses even saw Charles give Marjorie money one time. When one of Marjorie’s closest friends was interviewed, she told authorities that the Rambo brothers had sexually abused her.
They were charged with child molestation and plead guilty to lewd assault in the abuse case and were both sentenced to ten years probation. Later on, Willis was sentenced to four life terms in prison for the sexual abuse of his two stepdaughters. Charles was last known to be in Tennessee.
Both men denied any involvement in Marjorie’s disappearance and their house was searched in connection to her case but no evidence was found to implicate them in her disappearance.
Authorities have stated that a top suspect in Marjorie’s disappearance and presumed abduction is Victor George Wonyetye., he was golf course worker in 1984 with an extensive criminal history dating back to the 1960s with sexual assaults and other offenses filling it. He is also considered the prime suspect in the 1984 New Hampshire abduction of Tammy Belanger.
Wonyetye is sis’s to have been in the area at the time of Marjorie’s disappearance. He attended a neighborhood party that took place in Marjorie neighborhood and was also seen outside of the store that Marjorie visited that day. He maintained his innocence and stated he had never even met Marjorie. Victor was sentenced to 75 in prison for burglary and indecent exposure.
At his trial, some prison inmates stated that Wonyetye confessed to killing both Marjorie and Tammy back in 1984. This has not been confirmed and no charges were ever filed against him for the cases. There is no evidence that links him to their disappearances either. He was released from prison in 2012 and passed away nearly a year later.
In 2010, authorities announced that they had a possible suspect in Marjorie’s disappearance. The man was identified as Delbert Mosher. He lived in the area at the time of Marjorie’s disappearance and would later be arrested for child molestation. He died in prison more then 20 years after Marjorie’s disappearance.
William Ferris has recently been considered a suspect in Marjorie’s case. He was originally questioned regarding Marjorie’s whereabouts and he denied knowing Marjorie. He later, however, admitted that he did in fact know Marjorie as she would come to his yard to play with her friend when his wife babysat her.
One day when both girls were playing together before her disappearance, he said that one of them would disappear. After she disappeared, Ferris said she would never be found. It’s possible Marjorie may have tried to get to a friends house on the day of her disappearance. If she did, she could cross Ferris’ yard to reach it but the friend wasn’t there that day. It’s still possible she tried to get there not knowing that.
In 2019, authorities searched the property that Ferris lived on for any trace of Marjorie. A tip came into authorities due to the immense publicity that Marjorie’s case has received. No evidence was found.
The investigation into Marjorie’s disappearance remains open with her case being unsolved. Marjorie’s mother is still alive and moved away after she disappeared but has since moved back into the same house she shared with Marjorie’s and her sister. Foul play is suspected in her case.
