Thirteen Year Old Teaches Us All

By Susan Murphy-Milano

Pictured above is thirteen year old Amber Simmons. Amber is no ordinary. Her life was abruptly interrupted on March 13, 2008.

She is the daughter of Rachel Conger who was abducted by her estranged husband Paul. You see Rachel was finally leaving her abusive life. She returned to the marital home for some final items before embarking on her journey to a life without abuse.

In a tragic twist of events, her estranged husband Paul was found three days later with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. Prior to the coward committing suicide, he likely murdered Rachel Conger, his wife of ten years.

Now, her daughter Amber works day and night to find her mother. She has held fundraisers, created and passed out flyers, why she even put together an event for September 6, 2008, where some 2,000 people are expected to attend Paris, TN. Amber has t-shirt's for purchase and a web site to bring her mother home.

While most kids spent their summer with their parent(s) going on vacation, planning for the new school year or just hanging out together, Amber Simmons raised money to pay for professional search teams to comb the area where her mother was taken by Paul Conger.

"Rachel Conger is a thirty year old mother who was abducted from her home by her estranged husband in Como, TN, on 3/13/2008. Paul Conger was found deceased from a self inflicted gunshot wound on March 16, 2008.

On Tuesday, September 2, 2008, a family member will be featured on Justice Interrrupted Investigates live with Stacy Dittrich, Robin Sax and myself. We will also discuss important obstacles victims and their families face from hurtful rumors and gossip to information rarely shared with victims families. Click here for show details.

Amber Simmons, I know where ever your Mother is right now, she is very proud of you.

And By the Way, You are my Hero!

Amber Simmons is a remarkable teenager. She has done so much to help find her mother. She also has the support of a great dad and his family.

I am so happy to see that Rachel Conger and those who are close to her will be featured on the premier show.
