Pamela Webb never made the July 4 journey to see her boyfriend in New Hampshire

Pamela Webb made the drive down I-95 from Maine to New Hampshire many a time to see her boyfriend in the city of Mason.

That July 1 of 1989 was really no different. She left a July 4 family gathering in Winthrop, Maine with her beagle/basset hound Thumper for the three-hour trip south in her 1981 blue chevy pickup.

She would never make it to New Hampshire. On July 2, her pickup was found about an hour from Winthrop on the side of the road with a flat tire on the rear passenger side with the spare leaning against the tailgate. There were signs of a struggle including blood on the ground and earrings ground into the dirt around her truck. Pamela was nowhere to be found.

Almost three weeks later, Pamela’s skeletal remains were found three hours away in the wilds of New Hampshire off Route 3 near Franconia. The medical examiner ruled her death “unspecified violent homicide.”

This case does get even more bizarre as Pamela’s family sued the Maine State Police alleging that one of their troopers went past Pamela’s truck several times on the expressway without bothering to pull over and do a welfare check until very late that morning. The ex-trooper in question was found not liable in the case with the court ultimately blocking the lawsuit.

If you know anything about this case, you are urged to submit a tip to the New Hampshire Cold Case Unit here.
