Full title - "'You deserve to rot in hell for what you have done to me': Daughter's twitter outburst about mom who has resurfaced after being missing for ELEVEN years"
The teenage daughter of a woman who secretly left her family 11 years ago says she's angry and doesn't want to have a relationship with her.
Morgan Heist said Thursday that she's still trying to sort out why Brenda Heist would have decided to abandon her and her brother in Pennsylvania in 2002 and hitchhike with strangers to Florida.
Morgan Heist is now a 19-year-old freshman at a community college outside Philadelphia. She says she thinks about how she's spent the last decade mourning a woman who was alive.
Heists ex-husband meanwhile has said he is angry but working on forgiveness. He was once considered a suspect in her disappearance.
'There were families who would not let our children play with theirs because of me,' says Lee Heist Senior.
Brenda Heist was reported missing by her husband on February 8, 2002. The then 42-year-old was last been seen that morning dropping off her two children at school in Lititz, Pennsylvania. Her car was found a few days later with no apparent sign of a struggle.
Then on Friday evening she walked into Monroe County Sheriffs Office in Key Largo, Florida and announced who she was.
After arriving in the Sunshine State, she had lived as a homeless person in the Key West area, sleeping under bridges and tents and eating food thrown out by fast food restaurants, police said.
In all the years she was missing she never used a bank card or ID, even when she made some money cleaning boats.

She was legally declared dead in 2009. If there was a life insurance payout what happens now that she’s undead?
Meth, it’s a hell of a drug.
I feel sorry for the father. He must have went through hell with people thinking he killed his wife. Such a sad story.
Nebuchadnezzar. Read Daniel Ch. 4.
Because the lack of eyebrows could help identify her. It says she had to pencil them in.
Put down the pride little girl, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.Good advice!
Yeah, I'll bet.............
Like the art. Blake is the artist, no?
Do they have life insurance for zombies?
Def looks like a heavy drug user to me. If she would open her mouth I can probably tell you what her drug of choice is and how hard she was hitting it. Teeth and hair don’t lie.
Looks like the little alien in the movie Paul .....:o)
I feel sorry for all of them. You know the dad was a suspect even without a body. The daughter grew up without a mother and wondering if her father killed her. The mom is psychotic or addicted or both. At least she didn’t kill her daughter a la Susan Smith, she left. I hope they can come to terms with this.
Looks like Ma is already in Hell.
The daughter should count her blessings that her Father was there.
Considering the father was a suspect in her dissappearance for quite some time...
I feel bad for him, having been under suspuicion for so long, I am glad he was vindicated.
No eyebrows or eyelashes. No telling what all ails her.
Wow, your final paragraph says it all.
You and I can relate to exactly what this daughter is facing. Even more sadly, daughter and mom are racing the clock and from what we know from the article their clock is almost certainly running faster than it should.
Just out of curiosity, why is there a need to include the fact that she is unable to grow facial hair in her Identifying Characteristics on the Missing poster?
I would think becuase it's a unique identiifying feature that would make her stand out. If I had a loved one missing I'd want the description to include any and all features that might help identify the person.
yup the tweeters scabby face
Note that this Heist character does not present as ‘fairly normal’ in any fashion...
That’s a fairly unusual physical description and might have helped ID her had anyone in KW known about the missing PA woman and noticed the one in FL. No eye lashes, no eye brows might just stand out.
Sorry to hear that. It has to be one of the toughest things to deal with.
Come on everybody; cut her some slack, she just had to find “ HER SPACE/SELF”
Yes I am being sarcastic!
One look at her eyes tells the tale: Fetal alcohol syndrome.
The wide set eyes are a dead giveaway to the syndrome.
If this woman was in her right mind, she would not have lived under bridges and fed herself by dumpster diving.
Her kids may be really hating her right now, but they should know what that syndrome does to folks. And with the grace of God, forgiveness can come into their hearts and they can help this conflicted woman.
Meth. For sure.
No, meth look is very different.
Chase this link:
Compare the photos at the link with the AP photo of her at 42, just after she went missing.
The girl is deranged, but it might just be her momma’s fault.
Fetal alcohol syndrome is a for real crippler.
I don't get it. Don't you want the cemeteries protected from the depredations of witches?
As an aside, not everyone knows that one of our greatest Presidents, Abraham Lincoln, suffered much of his life from what is now thought to have been debilitating depression.
Tomorrow, 4 May 13, I will be walking with my wife in the NAMIWalks for the Mnd of America to raise money to help those with Mental Illness and their families. Anyone in the Albuquerque area is invited to come join us at Hoffmantown Church at 8AM. It is a 5k Walk. (they are having similar walks all over the country)
How do homeless people living under bridges dye their hair?
I don’t know but it may be that the mother disappearing was for the best even with what the family went through.
The daughter needs to get over it. She mourned the mother she had, found a way to make peace with the loss and went on with her life. That’s all any of us can do. This woman turning up is not the mother she lost, that woman no longer exists. This frail, unbalanced and perhaps drug addicted shell does need help, clearly.
Maybe the daughter can find it in her heart to forgive her, and help her get it rather than hurling curses at her. It takes more strength and courage to do the right thing. I pray she finds it.
Of course she has abandonment issues.
She was abandoned.
Exactly. Clearly the mother is not in her right mind. I think she was born that way. See my earlier posts about fetal alcohol syndrome.
Her children are the one avenue to help this woman.
They just have to not take it personal and understand that their mother probably didn’t even consider what she was doing to them, and her husband.
She is a mental basket case. No malice, just a basket case.
BTW, her ex isn’t off the hook. Life insurance paid out. Make NO mistake, they will come looking for reimbursement.
Hope the guy can pay off.
Lititz is about 45 minutes from me. I hadn’t heard about this until now.
Maybe it’s bleached out from being sun all the time?
I lived in Lititz, PA when Heist ‘’disappeared’’. The community, largely, believed that her husband had something to do with her ‘’disappearance’’. As did the police.
Heist, the husband, went through Hell, being the main ‘’suspect’’. That she would turn up today is a shock to many in this area.
Meth much? What a skank. In all senses of the word.
The phone will be ringing at hubby’s house. Another reason to wish she stayed disappeared.
I support the daughter, I wouldn't want anything to do with her either........
I suspect so and having known and dealt with the schizophrenic brother of a best friend, I have a good idea of what you are going thru.
You have or had tough choices to make and my prayers go out to you........
Ironweed indeed! Poor soul.
The insurance company that paid off WILL want reimbursed.
His trials and tribulations are far from over.
One look at her face, one knows she suffers from fetal alcohol syndrome.
She needs help and understanding. Especially from her kids who right now, hate her so much.
No meth here. You don’t know meth or mental illness.
Meth heads don’t have a clear face.
Fetal alcohol syndrome does.
This woman is classic FAS. Classic. One look at her face and any clinician will reach that conclusion.
And that means brain damage on a large scale.
This woman was doomed in the womb. Her momma just COULDN’T stop drinking the hooch when preggers.
Its sad, and its easy to blame mom, but in this case, mom probably isn’t the culprit.
Her eyes tell the tale.
If she has FAS, all the understanding in the world will not help her. Her wiring is broken, and it cannot be repaired.
Our current OCCUPANT of the White House sure does.
