The location where Ebby Steppach's body was found.
Crime Scene Location in Little Rock, Arkansas, United States.
This is the location where Ebby Steppach's body was found.
It is situated at Chalamont Park in Little Rock, Arkansas.
On May 22nd, 2018, Steppach's skeletal remains were discovered in a drainage pipe beside the parking lot. By that stage, the 18-year-old had been missing for nearly three years.
On October 23rd, 2015, Ebby attended a party. The following day, she told her mother and stepfather that she had been raped by four individuals at the party. She also claimed that they had recorded the assault on their phones.
Later that evening, she texted a number of the men and threatened to report them to the authorities.
She also made two short phone calls to the Little Rock Police Department. However, the police stated that there was no report, call log, or notes to suggest that Ebby had made a complaint.
At around 2 p.m. on October 25th, Ebby called her brother, Trevor. During the call, she reportedly sounded panicked and disorientated.
When Ebby told Trevor that she was parked outside his house, he hung up and walked outside to see her. However, there was no sign of her car.
Realizing that something was off, he called her back and asked her where she was. At that point, she said that she was with her car and that she didn't know where she was.
During their conversation, she claimed that she was "f**ked up." She also couldn't tell him if she was with anyone.
This was the last time anyone spoke to Ebby Steppach.
Five days later, on October 30th, police officers found her car parked beside a lamp post in Chalamont Park. The officers had been tipped off by a local security guard, who reported that a car had been abandoned in the parking lot beside the woods.
When the officers arrived, they saw that the 18-year-old's makeup and belongings were in the vehicle. They also noticed that the keys were still in the ignition, the gas tank was empty, and the battery was dead.
The security guard who reported the abandoned car claimed that he had seen Ebby talking to young men at the location on three occasions. He also stated that he had dashcam footage of her with these men, but that it had been overwritten before he could hand it over.
After being contacted by a private detective, he insisted that investigators from the LRPD never talked to him about the incident.
Shortly after Ebby's disappearance, a fake Facebook account pretending to be the missing girl reportedly messaged her mother and claimed that she was OK. However, by that stage, it is likely that she was already dead.
Although the authorities repeatedly searched the surrounding area with victim recovery dogs, they failed to find any trace of the teenager.
For the next three years, Steppach remained a missing person.
Then, on May 22nd, 2018, the police decided to search the park again. According to one of the lead detectives, the decision to revisit the scene was based on "gut instinct".
During the search, they recovered skeletal remains from a drainage pipe close to where Steppach's silver Volkswagen Passat had been parked.
The following day, the remains were formally identified as those of Ebby Steppach.
Although Ebby's death has been classified as a homicide, her case remains unsolved. To this day, no arrests have been made.

Ebby Steppach's silver Volkswagen Passat was parked beside the lamp post on the eastern side.
The entrance to the storm drain is about 60 feet north of the lamp post. The exit is on the other side of the trees, on the western side of the lot.
On May 22nd, 2018, her skeletal remains were discovered inside the pipe.
In 2015, the mother of Ebby's best friend called the police and told them about a smell that was emanating from the area.
However, they reportedly dismissed her because the victim recovery dogs had failed to pick up anything. When officers responded to her call, they explained that she had probably just smelled sewerage.
In 2016, the authorities carried out another search of the area. Although she reminded them about the smell, nothing came of it.
In May of 2018, the parking lot was searched again by cold case detectives. On that occasion, they searched the drain using robots that were fitted with cameras.
After spotting an obstruction about 70 feet inside, they decided to excavate the pipe near the exit. At that point, they discovered Steppach's skeletal remains.
The entrance to the drain pipe.
This Google Street View image of the entrance to the drain pipe was taken in May of 2014—roughly one year before Ebby disappeared.
As you can see, there is a manhole cover and a storm drain.
Once you remove the cover, you have to climb down a small ladder. At the bottom, there is a narrow pipe that is about 15–18 inches wide (pictured in the top left-hand corner).
Ebby's remains were found roughly 70 feet down the pipe, which is near the exit.
Ebby's car was parked beside this lamp post.
A local security guard said that he spotted Ebby in the park on three separate occasions. Each time, she was with a young man. On one occasion, she was hugging and kissing one of them.
Although the men who allegedly assaulted her were questioned, the authorities did not search their phones for evidence.
