Ylenia Maria Sole Carrisi


Ylenia Maria Sole Carrisi was the daughter of two famous Italian actors and was basically the Italian Vanna White, turning the letters on their version of Wheel of Fortune in the early ’90s. In 1994, while on a backpacking journey in Central America, Carrisi went missing near New Orleans.

A security guard, when questioned about the case, stated that he saw someone vaguely matching her description jump into the Mississippi River, shouting “I belong in the water,” before swimming around and eventually being forced under by the undertow of a barge. However, there is no way to confirm that this was her. Twenty years later, Carrisi’s mother and the detective she hired to work the case still believe that she is alive somewhere.
