Circumstances of Disappearance
Serial murder suspect John Edward Robinson Sr. was the last person seen with Lisa Stasi and her five-month-old daughter, Tiffany Stasi.

Lisa have been missing since 1985. She disappeared in January 1985 after Robinson reportedly helped the single mother move out of an area domestic violence shelter and gave her a job working for him. For a few months after her disappearance, the FBI probed allegations that Stasi had been taken across state lines for purposes of prostitution and information that her daughter Tiffany had been sold.

Stasi's family later received typewritten letters over her signature that said she was leaving Overland Park, Kansas with Tiffany and no longer wanted to be in touch with them. One of Stasi's relatives told a detective at the time that she was suspicious because Stasi could not type and the words did not sound like hers. The last known whereabouts of Stasi was an Olathe motel room where Robinson had arranged for them to stay three days before she was last seen. After she was reported missing, Robinson told authorities that he had found a letter from Stasi stating that she and the baby had gone to Denver.

Robinson is also suspected in the disappearances of Paula Godfrey and Katherine Clampitt.
Tiffany Stasi was found safe in 2000.

Lisa Stasi, a 19-year-old single mother, and her 4-month-old daughter disappeared in early January 1985, both presumed to be dead. It was years later, that the perpetrator John Robinson was caught. A master manipulator through and through, he was very good at seeking out vulnerable women and luring them into his orbit and, in some cases, to their deaths. When the news of his reality of being a serial killer broke in 2000, it was revealed that the missing daughter was, in fact, alive and well, living with his brother. This baffling case has caught the attention of many, including ABC’s ’20/20,’ who covered this story in an episode entitled ‘Sole Survivor.’

Heather Robinson, now 35, is married to Roberto Ramos and is a proud mother of boys. In her search to find out the truth about what really happened to her mother, she has established “The Lisa Stasi Effect,” which is an organization and a podcast to answer questions regarding her biological mother’s disappearance. She knows in her heart that Lisa is dead, so now, all she wants to do is find her remains and bury her in the empty grave that has a headstone in honor of her.
