Unsolved Mysteries

SYNOPSIS: On Good Friday, April 13th, 2001, 21-year-old Wendi Long and two friends, drove the 50 miles from Coushatta to Shreveport, Louisiana to do some shopping. After a couple of hours at the mall, Wendi and her friends stopped to pick up "Tommy," a friend they had met at Northwestern Louisiana University. The four visited a number of friends in the Shreveport area.

At around 11:00 p.m. they attended a party. There was drinking at the party and when it came time to take Tommy home, Wendi said she didn't want to drive and decided to stay at the party. Her two friends agreed to drive Tommy home. After dropping Tommy off, Wendy's friends were pulled over by a state trooper and the driver was arrested for drunk driving. Tommy later told police that he was concerned that Wendi might be stranded at the party. He then drove his car back to the party to find Wendi and offer her a ride home. Tommy says Wendi accepted the offer. On the way back, he stopped for gas and a quart of oil. When he walked out of the gas station, he saw Wendi talking to two young men in a black Chevy truck. Tommy said it looked as if Wendi knew the men. Wendi told Tommy that she was going with the two men and they would take her home. According to Tommy, that was the last time he saw Wendi.

Since he was the last person to see Wendi before she disappeared, Tommy agreed to take a polygraph test, which, according to police, he passed. Under hypnosis, Tommy was able to provide a more detailed description of the black Chevy pickup truck and the two men. His recollection enabled a police artist to produce sketches of the men but no one has come forward to identify them. At this point in their investigation, authorities are pinning their greatest hopes on finding the two men whom Tommy says were last seen driving away with Wendi.

UPDATE: On November 8, 2001, seven months after her disappearance, the body of Wendi Long was found near Louisiana Highway 1, between Shreveport and Coushatta. Authorities checked out the information that 'Tommy' provided, but none of those leads panned out. They began to take another look at ‘Tommy’- whose real name is Robert 'Rocky' Stewart. Stewart had been arrested for check fraud from an unrelated incident and was in jail when authorities questioned him about inconsistencies in his story. Police claim that Stewart confessed to Wendi's murder and then provided them with details of the location of her body. Wendi died from a gunshot wound to the back of the head.

Robert "Rocky" Stewart was found guilty and is serving a life sentence for the murder of Wendi Long.
