Still A Mystery is investigating the disturbing case of Najah Ferrell, who vanished from her apartment in Avon, Indiana, to the west of Indianapolis, in 2019.

The mother of two young boys is assumed to have been murdered, but the police have named no suspects, and no individual has been charged.

The case remains active, and her family members have vowed to keep searching for answers, but as of writing, the case is still a mystery.

On March 15, 2019, Ferrell left for work but never arrived. Concerns mounted after she failed to pick up her two children. A search was launched for the 30-year-old, but it initially failed to locate any sign of her.

There was a breakthrough on March 26 when her car was found abandoned on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis. And some of her belongings were found strewn along the side of the road. However, her purse and cellphone were never recovered.

Disturbingly, three weeks later, on April 7, a human foot was discovered by a fisherman 100 miles north of Avon in a retention pond at Crown Point, IN. Further investigation revealed that the foot belonged to Ferrell.

The police have also said that they “believe that somebody knows something about this case” and have urged members of the public to come forward if they have any information.

Ferrell’s mother, Paula Gholson, has said: “We are not going to quit. And it is not OK to take somebody’s life. It’s not OK.” She also added: “We’re going to keep this alive as much as possible and as long as we have to get where we need to get to get to some finality.”
