Memorial Service To Be Held For Teenager Who Disappeared After 1983 QUIET RIOT Concert

A memorial service will be held next week for a Davenport, Iowa teenager that went missing 26 years ago after a rock concert in 1983. Seventeen-year-old Bambi Dick (pictured below) disappeared on September 29, 1983 after seeing the band QUIET RIOT at Col Ballroom.

According to the Quad-City Times, her family never saw her again. They filed a report with the Davenport Police Department, which was canceled without explanation in early 1984, after she would have turned 18. They searched, hiring a private investigator and combing the Internet, hoping for the smallest of clues.

Ten days after the concert, a biker found the body of a young woman hundreds of miles away. She was strangled from behind, dragged and stuffed into a culvert outside of Amarillo.

Officials buried her as a Jane Doe at Amarillo's Memory Gardens Cemetery, with donated clothes, a donated plot, a donated casket and a donated headstone.

In early February, Paul Dick posted a description of his sister Bambi on the North American Missing Persons Network. On Feb. 13, Teresa Sprague of Victorville, Calif., called the Amarillo Special Crimes Unit. She thought she had a possible match to their Jane Doe, described in a post on The Doe Network's web site.
