The Case of Aleah Beckerle: One Year Since She Went Missing

A memorial still stands at the abandoned house where Aleah was found

It's been one year since Aleah Beckerle went missing from her home on Evansville's East Iowa St.

Aleah was 19-years-old and highly disabled.

Her disappearance caused many across the Tri-State to get out and join search efforts until Aleah's body was found in an abandoned house on South Bedford Ave., just three miles from where she was last seen.

A memorial is still set up at the abandoned house on South Bedford.

It started up on March 29, the day the body found there was identified as Aleah. From the point forward, it grew.

Eyewitness News spoke with several neighbors on Monday.

One man said he still sees people drive by to this day just to check it out or leave something for the shrine.

Another neighbor said walking by the house everyday sends chills down her spine and she wishes it would be torn down.

There was some talk of converting the lot into a playground for disabled children, but there are no plans set in place at this time.
