Details of Disappearance
Despot was last seen in Bakersfield, California on April 25, 2018. She was in the front yard at the residence she shared with her boyfriend, Matthew Queen, at the time. She has never been heard from again. Prior to her disappearance, her life had been troubled.

In late March 2018, one of Despot's acquaintances, Micah Blaine Holsonbake, disappeared from Bakersfield. On April 8, another Bakersfield resident, James Kulstad, was shot to death in his mother's car. Despot went missing two weeks after Kulstad's murder. In December 2018, one of Holsonbake's arms was found in a duffel bag at Hart Park in the Kern River. The rest of his body has never been located.

The two men knew each other and Kulstad had helped Holsonbake move just weeks before Holsonbake's disappearance, and both men were friends with Despot. Her disappearance and the two men's murders were associated in the media; Despot, Holsonbake and Kulstad were referred to as "the Bakersfield Three."

Photos of Holsonbake, Queen and Vandecasteele are posted with this case summary. Queen and Vandecasteele are awaiting trial in connection with Holsonbake's murder. Investigators do not believe his murder has any connection to Kulstad's death.

Despot's whereabouts remain unknown and the circumstances of her disappearance are still unclear; she may have fled the area after Holsonbake's murder, or may have met with foul play herself. Her mother says she believes Queen had a role in her daughter's disappearance, and that Despot was reportedly pregnant and trying to leave Queen when she went missing.

She remains listed as a missing person, but now has warrants out for her arrest in Holsonbake's death.
