From Suburban Housewife to Wannabe “Gang Member” Detective

On June 20, 2016, 23-year-old Jessie Grace vanished without a trace from her hometown of Wenatchee, Washington. It’s been almost four years since Jessie disappeared, and there have been zero sightings.

But that’s not all. Brittany claims her mother has transformed from Sherrie, the suburban housewife, to “Ma Shay,” the bad-ass, gun-toting grandma. Brittany says her mom is putting the entire family in danger by refusing to accept that they may never learn what happened to Jessie.
