Investigation continues one year after Lasheky Hill disappearance, RPD says

RACINE — Efforts to find missing Racine woman Lasheky Hill continue one year after her disappearance.

Hill, 46, was last seen March 26, 2023, in the 1300 block of Douglas Avenue, according to police. She was reported missing March 28, 2023 after no one had seen or heard from her.

Hill has been entered into the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System and the Black and Missing website, police said Tuesday.

Dozens of interviews of Hill’s friends, family and associates reportedly have been conducted by the Racine Police Department, and surveillance video from multiple locations across the city has been collected.

RPD also has searched multiple abandoned buildings and properties and executed search warrants at different locations, but no arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified, according to a press release from RPD.

“The Racine Police Department is dedicated to the continuous search for Lasheky Hill and providing answers to her loved ones. We will not stop until she is brought home,” Lt. Sarah Zupke said in a statement.

Fight to End Exploitation, a local nonprofit that aims to combat human trafficking, is partnering with Educators Credit Union to raise reward funds in an effort to help find Hill.

“We fully support the mission and the ongoing efforts of Fight to End Exploitation,” Richard Chiapete, corporate counsel for Educators Credit Union, said.

Donations for the reward account can be deposited at any Educators Credit Union branch. The donor should mention that it is for the Lasheky Hill Reward Fund, and the donation should be made payable to Fight to End Exploitation.

Checks with “Lasheky Hill” noted in the memo can also be mailed to Fight to End Exploitation at P.O. Box 85687, Racine, WI 53408.
