Coker was last seen in October of 2018. Her disappearance has since been deemed a homicide.
Wednesday also marked one year exactly since police announced Coker’s husband, William or “Bill” Coker as the only suspect in her disappearance but he has never been charged and no arrests have yet been made.
On January 13, Coker’s disappearance was the subject of a People’s Magazine article and an Investigation Discovery piece.
Last year, vigils were held in April for her 47th birthday and in October, on the one year anniversary of her disappearance.
In the last year and a half, volunteers, police cadets, and Texas Equusearch have conducted around a dozen searches for Coker as her family and friends remain hopeful for justice.
