Glendale Police Under Scrutiny for Delayed Response in Kristelle Day’s Disappearance


In the heart of Glendale, Arizona, a cloud of mystery surrounds the disappearance of 30-year-old Kristelle Day, a Native woman whose absence has left her family gripped with fear and confusion. As the investigation unfolds, questions arise not only about Day’s whereabouts but also about the response of law enforcement authorities.

Day’s family, hailing from Alaska, has been tirelessly seeking answers for nearly two months. Their journey to find Day has been fraught with roadblocks, the most glaring of which is the inexplicable delay in filing a missing persons report. Despite their persistent efforts, it wasn’t until they enlisted legal help that Glendale Police finally took action.

The story takes a chilling turn as Day’s family reveals the disturbing circumstances preceding her disappearance. A frantic Facebook message from Day on December 22, pleading for help and expressing fear for her safety, paints a harrowing picture of domestic violence. Despite their immediate efforts to intervene, the situation remained dire. Day’s communication abruptly ceased, leaving her loved ones in a state of agonizing uncertainty.

Adding to the complexity of the case is the involvement of Day’s alleged abuser, her boyfriend. His perplexing claim of not having seen her for weeks raises further suspicion. Yet, even with mounting evidence of potential foul play, Day’s family faced a disheartening obstacle in their pursuit of justice: denial from law enforcement to file a missing persons report.

The Glendale Police’s failure to promptly initiate an investigation raises serious concerns about their handling of the case. The family’s attorney, Darlene Gomez, aptly highlights the gravity of the situation, emphasizing the critical need for urgent action. Gomez’s persistence eventually led to the belated acknowledgment of Day’s disappearance as an open and active investigation. However, the lingering question remains: why the delay?

As the search for Day intensifies, unsettling developments only deepen the mystery. A cryptic phone call from an unknown individual claiming knowledge of Day’s whereabouts adds another layer of intrigue. Was it truly Day on the other end of the line, or a deceptive ploy to mislead investigators? The uncertainty surrounding this encounter underscores the urgency of the situation and the imminent danger Day may be facing.

Amidst the shadows of uncertainty, one chilling possibility looms large: human trafficking. Day’s prolonged absence and the ominous circumstances preceding her disappearance paint a grim picture of the potential dangers she may be exposed to. With each passing day, the urgency to find Day grows more acute, underscoring the critical need for a swift and comprehensive investigation.

As the spotlight turns to Glendale Police, questions abound regarding their delayed response and the protocols governing missing persons cases. The family’s ordeal serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerabilities faced by Indigenous women, whose cases often languish in the shadows of neglect and indifference.

In the quest for justice, every moment counts. The fate of Kristelle Day hangs in the balance, a testament to the pressing need for accountability and swift action in addressing cases of missing and endangered individuals. As the search continues, the rallying cry for justice echoes louder than ever, demanding answers and resolution in the face of uncertainty.
