On March 31, 2008, Elshani’s father reported her missing to the Colorado Springs police, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. She was last seen near her home on Twin Oaks Drive in the early morning hours of the same day.

Investigators suspect foul play in the case.

According to the Bureau, Elshani may have been using a blue 2004 Mazda with license plate 777-OFZ, a white 1990 Chevrolet with license plate 203-JEE or a red 1987 Nissan pickup truck with a license of 437-AOV.

But they suspect her boyfriend might have played a part in her vanishing. He killed himself after Elshani went missing.

“They got into an argument here at my parent’s house. He started yelling at her; she kept saying she didn’t want to leave. We kept telling her to stay but [the boyfriend] insisted that she left with him. That was the last time I ever saw her,” Fatime Elshani, Becky’s sister told KKTV in 2017.

After his death, Agim Elshani, Becky’s father, told the station that he suspected his daughter was no longer alive. Her blood was found in the boyfriend’s car and some believed he killed her and left her body along the mountains.
