The Disappearance Of Vonnie

The Disappearance of Vonnie was a true-story movie based on the murder of Vonnie Rickman, also known as Yvonne Rickman. The movie originally aired on the CBS channel in 1994, back when they were still making movies based on true stories. Since that time, it has aired on Lifetime Television. It stars Ann Jillian, as the tenacious sister. In real life, Vonnie's sister never gave up hope that her sister would be found.

Synopsis: When a wife and mother disappears after shopping with her husband, her sister sets out to find the truth.

Ron Rickman served time in prison until his death in 2004. Vonnie Rickman's daughter said that when her mother left, she was just a little girl, and she always believed that her mother was just hiding from her.

This case happened so long ago. Vonnie Rickman's daughter is all grown up with a child of her own. She sent me these pictures for the site.

A person related to the family stated that the movie was nothing compared to what they went through in real life. Here is her comment to me.

 "I agree that Rickman should never have seen the light of day after those murders. I was 15 months old when my dad was taken from me and never got a chance to know him or my grandfather. There is so much more to this story than the murder of Vonnie. Our family got to know her family during the trial of her murder. I hold absolutely no ill will toward any other Rickman family member. My family have only good wishes for his daughter and her family. BTW-there were a LOT of 'liberties' taken with the facts in "The Disappearance of Vonnie."

Ann Rule has written countless numbers of true crime books, many of which became movies based on true stories, such as Ann Rule's Too Late To Say Goodbye and Everything She Ever Wanted. The Lifetime Television channel aired many of these movies during the late 1980's and throughout the 1990's.

In recent years, her television appearances declined but her research will survive generations. In recent months, it was brought to light that her son had been arrested for fraud and for abusing Ann, a fact that devastated her devoted true crime fans.

Ann Rule's death comes on the heels of the death of Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Ann Rule's other movies include:

The Stranger Beside Me

An Never Let Her Go

Hunt For The I-5 Killer

Small Sacrifices
