Case 77

Mia Zapata

Born on August 25, 1965, Mia Zapata lived with her brother, sister and parents in Louisville, Kentucky.

The family lived a comfortable life in Douglass Hills where the children had a free-spirited and carefree upbringing. Mia was independent and even as a toddler, it was common for her to wander off and do her own thing.

She also liked to sing! Her voice was strong and husky for a kid, and people would often turn around in surprise to hear such a tone coming from someone so small. A voice, many thought was destined for big things, destined to show the world what she was made of.

Closing song titled; “Bob – Cousin O” performed by The Gits, written by Mia K Zapata, Matthew F Dresdner, Andrew L Kessler and John Stephen Moriarty © Fishheadhotdogburrito Music, licensed courtesy of Rogue Octopus.
