Ylenia Carrisi was the daughter of two Italian singers and actors. When she was 13, she appeared in this movie with her parents:
As she reached adulthood, she starred as the letter turner on the Italian version of Wheel of Fortune.
However, her real dream was to be a novelist. She attended King's College London, where she studied literature. While studying, she decided she wanted to travel the world.
Ylenia sold everything she had and traveled to South America. On the day after Christmas, 1993, she left for New Orleans.
A week later, Ylenia disappeared, leaving behind her passport and some luggage. She was last seen in the French Quarter early in January. She was staying at this hotel with a street musician who was 20 years older than her.
On January 6th at 11 p.m., a woman jumped into the river near the Aquarium of the Americas. A man said she looked at him, said, "I belong in the water," and jumped. She swam for about 100 yards but a barge came by, making waves. She screamed and disappeared.
