SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A man who was once investigated for Springfield's most notable unsolved mystery was recently arrested in Tennessee for attempted false imprisonment, among other crimes.

Springfield officers investigated Bartt Streeter for possible involvement in our case of the three missing women in 1992.

The three women totally vanished, and have never been found since. Suzie Streeter,19, Streeter's mom Sherrill Levitt, 47, and Stacy McCall, 18, went missing from Levitt's home in Springfield just after the teen's high school graduation.

All of their personal belongings were left behind that day including their cars and their purses. There were also no signs of a struggle inside, except for a broken light on the porch.

Bartt Streeter who is Sherill Levitt's son, and the brother of Suzie was just charged with attempted false imprisonment in Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. Streeter is 54 years old now-- back in '92 he was 27 years old.

Streeter was eventually eliminated as a suspect.

The ABC affiliate in Nashville obtained surveillance video that shows Streeter grab a customer's hand-- and the nail shop owner where it happened says Streeter then pointed to a 15-year-old girl customer, claiming he was her grandfather and saying he was there to take her home when she was finished. The girl had never seen him before.

Streeter was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and attempted false imprisonment.

Springfield police would not talk to KY3 News about the incident in Tennessee.

Janis McCall, the mother of Stacy McCall, says she is aware of what happened there, and she hopes that Springfield police will investigate this much more thoroughly than they have, and she's not happy about it.

Streeter also had a first degree attempted kidnapping charge by force or coercion is 2000 in Las Vegas.
