Mystery Monday: Hyun Jong ‘Cindy’ Song

It's Monday, which means it's time for another...



In celebration of October, my favorite month, I'm tackling a Halloween-themed mystery today. This mystery involves a beautiful young woman who disappeared after a Halloween party at this nightclub in 2001, which was called Players Night Club at that time.




Hyun Jong Song, who went by the name "Cindy," moved to America in 1995, after being raised in Seoul, South Korea. At the time of her disappearance, she was studying integrative arts at Pennsylvania State University.



Cindy left the party around 2 a.m., at which time she was heavily intoxicated. After spending two hours at a friend's apartment, another friend dropped her off at her apartment around 4 a.m. It was the last time she was ever seen. This photo was taken of her the evening she disappeared:



On November 4th, Cindy's friends contacted the police, saying they hadn't heard from her. Inside her apartment were her cell phone and the false eyelashes she'd worn with her costume.



There have been no credible leads in the case, although some believe Cindy may have fallen victim to Hugo Selenski, a convicted murderer in northeastern Pennsylvania. Twelve bodies were found on Selenski's property. Selenski admitted to killing Cindy, but some of the bodies couldn't be identified because they'd been burned.





Another mystery possibly solved, although we may never know for certain...

  2. She was followed probably from that party. The man waited for her....stalked her. How sad that they couldn't even find teeth to confirm if she was one of the people this evil S.O.B. Took. No matter what, very sad.

  6. Sad. And you can't always believe confessions like this because some psychos will take credit for murders they didn't even commit.

  8. Well, I guess if he said he killed her and they never found her I guess I'd believe him. :(

  10. He sounds like a horrible man and probably is guilty.

  11. So sad. And if or whether that psycho is to be believed, that he was responsible, I wholeheartedly agree with Alex.

  12. So sad that there's no way to know for sure. I'm another one that agrees with Alex.

  13. I want to believe him, but I admit I watch too much TV about serial killers. So many of them are proud of their work. Ugh.

  15. You missed the best parts about Hugo Selenski - that he's been charged with several murders and been acquitted or had the juries deadlocked. They finally got two that stuck only for him to appeal the life in prison sentence because he had his criminal friends threaten witnesses and screw up the investigation. All of this while he was already serving decades in prison for armed robbery.

    Yeah, if he said he did it, he probably did.
