Denise was also an avid performer in the Centerplayers theater group, which she also failed to attend for rehearsals that day. The group had recently performed in the Crossroads Shopping Center at 35th Avenue and Freeport Boulevard.
In light of recent articles concerning the murders of Judith Hakari, Carol Beth Hilburn and Betty Cloer, the disappearance of Denise Anderson at or in the proximity of her residence at 925 16th Street, is rather pertinent. Her residence was only 1.28 miles from the home of convicted murderer, Phillip Arthur Thompson (2526 V Street}, and only 1.19 miles from Alhambra Boulevard where he worked with partner Mark Masterson. Betty Cloer was raped and murdered by Phillip Arthur Thompson on June 19th 1971, just two months after the disappearance of Denise Anderson.
Assuming she left her residence early that morning for work, it may be extremely useful to find out which branch of the Wells Fargo Bank she worked - and headed toward (on foot) that day. There is a branch of Wells Fargo at 1831 S Street in Midtown about 1km from the 2526 V Street residence of Thompson, but without knowing whether it was on that site in 1971 leaves only speculation. This journey would have certainly taken her into the hot zone of Thompson. The United States District Court transcripts stated that "Petitioner and a partner, Mark Masterson, operated a used car sales and service company located on Alhambra Boulevard", thereby providing a secure and private location out of business hours, distinct and separate from his home residence.
Under Distinguishing Characteristics on The Charley Project it details Denise Anderson as a Caucasian female with brown hair, brown eyes, 5'2" to 5'4" inches in height and 120lbs. Although her hair was long at the time of her disappearance, Anderson has been known to wear a wig which would give her a short hairstyle. This item was missing from her apartment after she disappeared.
