Michael Turney

Michael Roy Turney, 75, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his stepdaughter, Alissa Turney, 17, whose body has never been found. On May 17, 2001 Alissa told her boyfriend that her stepfather was going to be taking her out of school early. It was the last day of her junior year at Paradise Valley High School. She was never seen again. Michael reported his stepdaughter missing and told police that he believed she had run away. He told investigators that she had left behind a note indicating she was going to California. On August 19, 2020, a grand jury returned an indictment of second-degree murder in Alissa's case. Prosecutors have not released any information publicly about what evidence they have tying Michael to his stepdaughter's disappearance, or that Alissa died.
