Magaro was last seen departing a friend's residence in Kentmore Park, Maryland on February 22, 1987 at approximately 9:45 p.m. Magaro was driving her gray four-door 1976 Ford Torino at the time. She was planning to drive back to her home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that evening. A severe snowstorm occurred in the Kentmore Park region the night Magaro was last seen; eighteen inches of snow accumulated. She had wanted to get home before the weather became too bad to drive in. She never arrived home and has not been hears from again.
Magaro's car was discovered the following morning at approximately 9:45 a.m., after someone made an anonymous call to the police about it. The vehicle was located in a field 100 feet west of State Route 213, which is approximately two miles south of the Bohemia River Bridge, north of Cecilton in Maryland. Hair, blood and human tissue were discovered inside the car, which had been partially burned to destroy evidence. There was clothing scattered around the vehicle, which was in running condition with seven gallons of gas in the tank. Magaro's pocketbook, her driver's license and a tube of lipstick were in a nearby field. Witnesses reported seeing a Ford Mustang with Pennsylvania license plates in the field with its hazard lights on. One witness saw a man talking to a woman in a car that resembled Magaro's vehicle.
Months later, one of her credit cards was found near White Hall Road, about ten or eleven miles from where her car had been found. Authorities searched the area but found nothing else of interest. Investigators believe that Magaro was murdered by unknown suspect(s) during the evening of her disappearance. They believe she died of blunt force trauma, but her remains have never been located.
A white male attempted to use one of Magaro's stolen credit cards to buy a television set at a Sears store in Bel Air, Maryland after her car was found. The card was maxed out, so the man was unable to buy anything and he left, leaving the card with the salesclerk. It is unknown if the man was involved in Magaro's presumed homicide, but he resembled the man seen talking to the woman in the car on the day of Magaro's disappearance.
Magaro left behind a four-year-old son. Some agencies list Earleville, Maryland as the location of her disappearance.
