DALLAS – In this week’s trackdown, the police are looking for information on Mercedes Clement, who has been missing for nine months.
She was last seen walking with a man across an apartment complex parking lot to one of the residential units in 2205 Empire Central.
Now murder detectives are working on the case
She has been missing since October, but Clements’ mother, Alicia Gazotti, is not giving up
“We’re broken. Part of my soul is gone,” said Gazotti.
Gazotti spoke about the trauma without knowing what happened to her daughter, who has been missing since October 11, 2020.
“She wouldn’t miss her son’s birthday, Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, her birthday. None of that,” said Clements’ mother.
On Sunday, October 11, 2020, Clement parked her black Nissan in a visitor space in the Koko Apartments in Empire Central at around 10:45 p.m.
“She was with a guy who got out of a vehicle,” said Dallas PD Detective Patty Belew. “And you can see her on video. You see Mercedes and a white man with whom she gets out of a vehicle and then goes to the apartments.”
It’s dark, but cameras caught them in the parking lot. She was wearing a black tank top.
You go to apartment 146 and that person no longer lives there after being evicted.
“We never see them videotape because the video had a bug for a few hours,” said Det, Belew said.
Police said they spoke to the man who went for a walk with Clement and he said they went there together but he doesn’t remember anything after that.
“I think someone has information and I would be happy if they gave me a call,” said Det. Belew said.
“If they know something, just talk, don’t be afraid to come up to graduation. You know, my daughter is out there somewhere. She doesn’t deserve to be thrown away like trash. She deserves it to be with her son. ” said Gazotti. “We deserve a degree, we deserve to know, and she deserves it. It was worth it. She is worth something. “
A reward of $ 10,000 will be offered for information in this case.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Belew at 214-671-3603 or email [email protected]
