Missing Person Case September 2021

Date reported missing : 06/04/1975

Missing location (approx) :
Boston, Massachusetts
Missing classification : Endangered Missing
Gender : Female
Ethnicity :
White
Age at the time of disappearance: 40 years old
Height / Weight : 5'6, 130 pounds
Distinguishing characteristics, birthmarks, tattoos : Caucasian female. Blonde hair, brown eyes. Goroshko's maiden name is Carbone. Her hair was shoulder-length at the time of her disappearance, and her ears are pierced. All her teeth have been removed and she wears a full set of dentures.





Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Goroshko was last seen at The Penalty Box, a bar on Causeway Street in the North Station area of Boston, Massachusetts, on June 4, 1975. She has never been heard from again and her car, a gold and black 1970 Ford Maverick with the Massachusetts license plate number 9K7755, has not been found either. A photo of the car is posted with this case summary.
At the time of her disappearance, Goroshko was dating John "Jack" Boulton, a convicted felon. A photo of him is posted with this case summary. He told police he and Goroshko were out drinking that night, and went to Brighton, Massachusetts together, where they got into an argument and ended their relationship.
He said he walked from Brighton to his family home in Roslindale, Massachusetts, and on the way, Goroshko followed him in her car, yelling and trying to hit him with the car. When he reached the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, he took a shortcut through the park to get away from her. He never saw her again after that.
Authorities stated Boulton's story doesn't match up with other evidence of the night of Goroshko's disappearance, however. He has a violent history, including convictions for armed robbery and the manslaughter of a previous girlfriend's two-year-old daughter, and Goroshko's sons stated he mistreated their mother.
Boulton now lives in Florida. Authorities re-interviewed him about Goroshko's case decades after she disappeared, and he said he had no idea what happened to her. When interviewed by a news reporter in 2019, he described the incident where Goroshko followed him home and tried to hit him with her car, but said that wasn't the night of her disappearance, only the night he himself last saw her. He has not been named as a suspect in her disappearance.
At the time of her disappearance, Goroshko lived in the 50 block of Monastery Road in Brighton, Massachusetts. Her mother died in 1992 and her sister in 2008, and in both their obituaries, Goroshko is listed as having predeceased them. Both police and her sons do not believe she left of her own accord. Her case remains unsolved.

September 2021 updates and sources

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
