Details of Disappearance Parisi was last seen in the 9200 block of Clifton Boulevard in Cleveland, Ohio on April 18, 1997. She worked as a professional escort and that night went to an address in Parma, Ohio. At 6:30 p.m., she called the escort service she worked for and said no one had answered the door at the designated address. She has never been heard from again.
The next day, her 1991 Chevrolet Lumina was found in the parking lot of a shopping center on Pearl Road, with her keys inside and $350 in cash in the console. Authorities traced the phone her prospective client used; it was a pay phone at a Cleveland donut shop.
Parisi had worked as an escort for seven years. In January 1997, a few months before her disappearance, she was violently attacked by one of her clients: James Faia, a convicted drug trafficker, allegedly robbed her at gunpoint and tried to kill her by putting a plastic bag over her head. She survived and her assailant was indicted for attempted murder, aggravated robbery and felonious assault.
At the time of Parisi's disappearance, Faia was out on bail awaiting trial. It's unclear whether he had anything to do with her disappearance, however; police could find no evidence that he was involved.
