Who Murdered The Math Teacher?

Written by Naptime Nancy 

Thirty eight year old mother of two, Faye Dollar.

On Saturday night, November 29th, 1980, Faye Dollar tucked her four year old and nine year old sons into bed. They recalled that their mother wore a red dress when she said goodnight. By Sunday morning, the boys awoke to discover that their mother and her gold 1972 Monte Carlo were nowhere to be found. The boys phoned their father, Donald Dollar, who was recently divorced from Faye, to tell him that their mother was missing. 

Come Monday morning, Faye had failed to show up to work. She was a math teacher at Feldwood High School in the College Park community of Atlanta, GA, and it was unheard of for her to call in sick, let alone not show up at all. Police sent out a nationwide BOLO (be on the look out) alert for Faye Dollar and her gold Monte Carlo, but the incorrect license number was given initially. 

The Admirable Benbow Inn in Atlanta, GA.

On Thursday evening of December 4th, 1980, Faye Dollar’s gold Monte Carlo was located in the parking lot of the Admiral Benbow Inn at 1470 Spring St in Atlanta. Tragically, Faye’s body was found curled up sans clothes in the trunk of her car. Her hair was set in curlers and she had been struck just behind her ear. A gold chain hung around her neck. According to the manager of the Admirable Benbow, Faye had not registered at the Inn and neither himself or security had seen her vehicle in the parking lot earlier that same day.
