    On the day of her disappearance, she was scheduled to meet her new landlord to give him a downpayment on an apartment. She and her new roommate planned to have dinner before the meeting. Scivetti did not show up for the planned dinner. Scivetti’s phone records indicate the last call she made was to Charles Chorman, the man who she had an on and off relationship with for four years. Chorman had been arrested for abusing Scivetti in 1997.

    Chorman was rumored to be romantically involved with his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Bump, at the time of her disappearance in 1993. Chorman has refused to cooperate in the invesitigations of Bumps’ and Scivetti’s disappearances but has not been named as a suspect by Law Enforcement.

    Anna’s family said that she would never leave without saying goodbye, or leave her dog unattended, or leave with no money in her pocket.

Samiya Haqigi

Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance:

  • Missing Since: November 12, 1999 from New York City, New York
  • Classification: Endangered Missing
  • Date Of Birth: December 1974
  • Age: 24 years old
  • Height and Weight: 5’6; 128 pounds
  • Distinguishing Characteristics: Black hair; brown or hazel eyes. Haqiqi is of Middle Eastern descent.

Haqiqi was a first-year law student at Quinnipiac Law School in Connecticut in 1999. She resided in Hamden, Connecticut at the time. Haqiqi was last seen at approximately 2:30 PM on November 12, 1999 as she left her final class on campus. She was planning to spend the weekend at her family’s home on 159th Street in the Flushing area of the New York City borough of Queens.

Haqiqi never arrived as scheduled and has not been seen again. Authorities believe that Haqiqi planned to tell her then-boyfriend, Fahid “John” Popal, that she did not want to marry him. Investigators think that Haqiqi’s boyfriend learned about her rekindled relationship with a previous boyfriend prior to November 12 and was angered by the news. Haqiqi’s 1997 black Volkswagen Jetta convertible was discovered abandoned in the Grand Union supermarket parking lot on Northern Boulevard and Marathon Parkway in the Little Neck section of Queens on November 14, 1999, two days after her disappearance.┬áThere was no sign of a struggle at the scene and the car was locked.

Authorities found a gold necklace Haqiqi normally wore inside the vehicle. The jewelry had been given to her by her boyfriend. Haqiqi’s mother said that her daughter’s car was parked less than one block from Fahid’s residence. Haqiqi often parked at the location when meeting friends in the vicinity. Her family members filed a missing person’s report with law enforcement the day her vehicle was discovered. Investigators announced that they considered Fahid the prime suspect in her disappearance in 2000, more than one year after Haqiqi was last seen. He hired an attorney and moved to Canada sometime after Haqiqi vanished. Shortly after Haqiai’s disappearance, a witness reported that a man carried a rolled-up rug into the Long Island automobile repair shop where Fahid and his brother, Farhad Popal, were employed. Photos of Fahid and Farhad are posted below this case summary.

Authorities searched the premises and discovered maggots under a hydraulic lift. The insects were tested for evidence of Haqiqi’s DNA, in case her blood was near the lift. The results were inconclusive. A clump of hair was discovered in the shop sometime after 1999. DNA testing proved the hair belonged to Haqiqi. Investigators announced that evidence suggested the hair had been violently ripped from her head. Fahid had since relocated to Fremont, California, where he was arrested in early August 2002 and charged with Haqiqi’s murder. Farhad was charged with hindering prosecution in her presumed homicide. Authorities believe that Fahid killed Haqiqi after learning of her refusal to marry him, then disposed of her remains. Haqiqi’s body has never been located.
