I didn't see a thread for the driver (Michael Eric Hager) of the van in the forum. Mods, if there is one, please delete this one. If you feel we don't need this one, again, please delete it.

What do we know about the driver? We have heard he was a Grateful Dead Fan. Do we know if he had attended any Grateful Dead Concerts? If so, when and where? Is it possible he might have met "Jason" at another concert?

Is it possible Michael may have told Jason that if he hadn't caught a ride after the DC GD concert he could give him a ride or told Jason he would be coming back from NY around that day and if Jason wanted to hook up that Jason should start hitchhiking and that he (Michael) would be in Fairfax (to take his girlfriend home) and then he would be continuing onto his mother's place (after making a stop at his father's place in Gloucester) in Inman, SC where he had a summer job. Is it possible that Michael told Jason about work in Inman, SC and Jason decided to go along with him there?

Did LE go through Michael's belongings and look at phone numbers and interview his family about whether Michael had been to any GD concerts?

Could Jason left any of his belongings at Michael's father's place and they were just mistaken as belonging to Michaels'?

Sorry for rambling....

One of my guesses would be if Michael Hager had been to a Grateful Dead concert it possibly would have been in Charlotte, NC in March of 1995.

They also could had met at a GD concert in Chapel Hill, NC. There was one there in 1993 (http://www.dead.net/show/march-25-1993) and there was supposed to be one there in March of 1994 but it was canceled.

Of course, this is only speculation on my part that Michael & Jason may have met previously.

We know that Michael's parents did not know the unidentified person.

My parents didn't know a lot of my friends at that age.

I want to know, "Did Michael know "Jason" prior to June 26, 1995?" Had they met at another GD concert? Anywhere else along the way? How did "Jason" get to the concert? Is it possible Michael was his ride there?

We know that Michael & his girlfriend went to NY to see his girlfriend's family, but, exactly when did he leave for New York? Could he have brought Jason to DC say on the 23rd or even earlier on the 24th and then picked up his girlfriend and left for NY or ?? We know Michael and his girlfriend came back from NY on the 26th.

Just trying to fill in the blanks...

I always for whatever reason felt that the drive met up with our UID male at one of the DC shows and he agreed to give him a ride. It isn't that uncommon to find a ride with someone at these types of concerts.

Earthbound Misfit I

I agree, or I can see perhaps Michael & Jason being in contact somehow ?? before the show and Michael tells Jason that he is going to be heading in that direction, for example, to Fairfax to pick up his girlfriend to head to NY and Michael gives Jason a ride that far (to Fairfax) and Jason either hooks up with someone the rest of the way for a ride, or starts thumbing the rest of the way or something along those lines?

What would be the most likely route for Jason Doe to be walking/hitching a ride? We are fairly certain he was picked up by Michael Eric Hager between Fairfax, VA & Gloucester, VA. Would he most likely be walking the major freeway route or stand at a on ramp to freeway entrance?

It would have taken Jason Doe approximately a half an hour to get from DC by car under normal conditions (only these weren't normal conditions because of the Grateful Dead Shows) or approximately 5 1/2 hours to walk to Fairfax, Virginia.

I got off track on one of the threads about the tickets found with Jason and got to talking about the driver and the route he may have travelled, etc. So, for now I am cross-linking the threads so that I know there is chatter about the driver and his travels on the tickets thread also. Hopefully a mod will come along and move them for us :)

We know that the accident occured just west of Emporia on US 58, was this on the US58W exit?

I'm not very good with maps so forgive me if I am off on this, but, is this a possibility, let's say that the driver didn't pick Jason up until after he went to his father's house. I know I have read it both ways, the neighbor thought he had seen someone with Michael that day, but, I also read that Michael's father said that when Michael called him after he left his house (I believe it was after he left the house??) Michael didn't mention anyone was with him.

So, for now, I am going to say that when Michael went to his father's home Jason was not with him. Michael then leaves his father's home he gets back on I-64 and then jumps on I-295 with every intention of getting onto I-85..

Now, this is where I get lost, is it possible that Jason could have been hitching a ride and could have been standing on the side of I-295 that runs over into I-95 heading west or it goes over from I-295 into I-95 which turns into I-85 (am I making any sense?? LOL).

So, I guess what I am asking is could it the possible reason Michael took I-95 heading west be because that is the point he picked Jason up? Then Michael takes I-95 down into Emporia and gets onto US58 with the intent of taking it over to get onto I-85 and then going down into South Carolina from there.

I want to correct myself here. I do not believe that Dr. H G H (mentioned on the GD tickets thread) is Michael Eric Hager's (Driver of van) father. I believe he is his grandfather or uncle. This may through another loop in the whole map problem even further, if that's possible! Back to the drawing board.

Does anyone happen to know exactly what day Michael and his girlfriend went to NY to visit her family? We know that they returned to Fairfax, VA on the 25th. Did they drive to NY? What part of NY did her family live in? There was a Grateful Dead Concert in Albany, NY on June 22nd, did they happen to catch that show, I wonder?

Thinking out loud here again, is it possible that the driver, Michael Eric Hager, had been to a Grateful Dead concert during the 1995 summer tour and bought the tshirt himself, the one that Jason was wearing? It is possible that Jason's clothing were so dirty and crusty, yucky and such from not changing for a few days that when Michael and Jason stopped at Michael's dad's home, Jason showered (perhaps that explains the hair dye being "smeared"/"smudged")Michael gave Jason a change of clothing and Jason just threw out the old ones in the trash. I really would like to know what Michael's physical description was.

Just fyi,
The David Griffith mentioned in the card of thanks above passed way 1/28/2007. At that time, he was married to Eric's mother. Sounds like he was a very good musician. Looks like the family is really into music, guess that explains why he picked up our hitchhiker.

I've thought about Eric, the driver, all day. I think we'll find out more about him and the details that led up to the wreck via facebook friends from hs in Inman and college friends of his fm Carolina. It would be nice if we knew if he had any siblings and if he was in a fraternity or band or had any major hobbies at USC. (Like, if he was really into Ultimate Frisbee, we could potentially track down former members of the ultimate club at USC.) Just thinking out loud...

MTA: *Half/step siblings are highly likely given EH's parents' remarriage.
*I think we should investigate same-age (estimate) potential friends from where both his father and his mother (remarried) lived. He could have good friends from his "Dad summers" that might know what he (EH) was up to that summer.
*It'd also be helpful to know if either of EH's families were involved in a house of worship. He might have had a good friend-base from youth groups.

Looking at the NC Birth Indexes it looks like Michael is an only child. I will have to look further to see if he might have any half siblings. I'm also thinking thinking about all the other items you suggested.

Hey RKnowley
I was thinking and posted in a couple of places this same theory of the two knowing each other before as well..... something just keeps me thinking they are connected whether it be through school or other interests...... I was 19 that year and would never have picked up someone but that is me..... but there are too many similarities.... I really think they are close in age as well.... that is probably why there is not a missing child link with his discription..... and like u said and I repeat if he did not know Jason, hager felt a kindred spirit in him due to his love of music.... only explanation I can think of to trust someone you don't know to travel with.....

Hi folks.

There are reams of reading here, so I hope I've got my info correct.

Were Jason Doe and Eric (the driver) seen at Eric's father's place? I recall reading that somewhere.

Considering that Eric trusted Jason enough to give him a ride and bring him to his father's home, I wonder if he let Jason use his Dad's phone?

While I certainly don't expect a phone bill to be top of mind for a grief-stricken father, I wonder if Mr. Hager happened to notice any unusual numbers, perhaps long-distance charges, on his phone bill the next month?

iirc - there was a belief that they were both at the father's house based on the location of the father's house on the trip. i believe the father wasn't at home and stated that the son never mentioned having a passenger or friend with him.

Hi all,

After posting GD's story all over Reddit, wherever I could imagine it may fit, I made contact with somebody who was close friends with the driver, Eric (that was his preferred name). I thought you might like to have a read through the questions I asked, and his responses. Please, if you would like me to ask any questions, don't hesitate to mail or post here and I will forward them on to him! :)


First off, could you tell me a bit more about Michael?

First off, his name was Michael but he was called Eric. That's what everyone knew him as for as long as I knew him (from 5th grade when he moved to Spartanburg, SC). His mother was married to one of my Dad's high school friends and I used to spend the night with him growing up a good bit.

Nothing personal obviously, just what he was like as a person? Do you think it would be likely he would pick up a hitchhiker? Was he a Grateful Dead fan? I think it has been confirmed he was not at that concert, as he was with his girlfriend, but I'd be interested to know if he was motivated to pick up our doe because of his clothing. Do you know if he had ever been to a GD concert before?

Eric was a really big dead fan. I wasn't really into them but he and I would smoke weed and play music for each other (I was more into indie rock at the time...Phish caught me not long after when they played Columbia). Anyway, yeah, all his newer friends were dead fans and I heard that he was going to see the dead around that time so it surprised me to hear that he hadn't been to the show when he wrecked - which by the way, I didn't know until recently in a forum somewhere that was talking about this. For years, I thought he was coming back from a dead show.

The girlfriend thing is tricky. He had a girlfriend I think was originally from VA but went to USC. I don't remember her name (it's been too many years) but was friends with her at the time. They had broken up and he was dating another girl I didn't know but she was at USC also. Cute red-head. I didn't know her well - only met her through him - but she was a hippy type, wore tie dye, long skirts, berkenstocks, etc. They both were at the funeral, which was a bit weird.

And, yeah, he was a kind and trusting person. I don't doubt at all he would've picked up a hitchhiker, especially a young guy wearing deadhead attire.

Were you given any information about the accident at all? Say, were they able to estimate how long it was between when it happened, to when they were found? It has been entertained in the past that maybe someone robbed our doe, and that is why there is no information on him at all.

I don't know anything really. All I heard was he fell asleep driving. I was more upset about Eric than anything and didn't know about the unidentified guy until later. I have known a number of people who similarly toured with Phish and wouldn't be surprised at all if they had no identifying information on them

There was information presented that perhaps a neighbour spotted a 'young man' with Michael as he entered his fathers house the day of the accident. Did you ever hear anything of that nature?

No. His mother and father were divorced and I grew up with him in SC where he lived with his mother. I only met his real father a couple of times, one of them at the funeral.

Wish I had more info for you. Like I said, it's been many, many years and I probably didn't have much information that would be helpful even then.


Let me know if you would like anything else asked! :)

Roselvr here is the most recently reply :) :

"I don't know if he went to the concert. Right after it happened I had heard he was coming back from a grateful dead concert. That's all I heard though and it seemed reasonable since he was a big fan. That said, I don't know if he was or not...I hadn't discussed it with him and wasn't close enough with him at the time to him to know.

That was just was someone had told me and what I assumed to be the case until years later when I ran across a site talking about the rider. I assumed that other people might've known better. Even if had gone to a show, I couldn't be sure that it was RFK.

It would make sense to me if he had been to the show (or at least the lot) and met Jason who hitched a ride with him."

First off, his name was Michael but he was called Eric.

I'm glad I saw this. I was posting some information on reddit the other day and as I'm proofreading I saw I had written Eric but the article I was referencing said Michael. I was coming across so much conflicting and confusing information and I was wondering where I came up with Eric.

I hope this renewed interest doesn't open up old wounds for Eric's family. I would be nice learn a little more about him.


And, yeah, he was a kind and trusting person. I don't doubt at all he would've picked up a hitchhiker, especially a young guy wearing deadhead attire.

all this makes much more sense than the hitch hiker theories i heard. If the circulating photo of Jay/Jason from Illinois is GD, and it's true that he was from SC, then it's highly likely in my opinion that they arranged to meet up and go from VA to SC together. The fact that the VA girlfriend didn't recall Eric saying anything about giving a ride to someone is irrelevant. I think they at least knew each other before the day they died. I wish there was a picture of Eric, too, to tag onto some of these social media posts in case it jogs anyone's memory. For me, I'm going to assume they knew each other already.

Hmmmm. Not sure why the link is not working correctly. It's Boiling Springs High School, Class of 1992, he's on page 56 of the year book (the page is blue) but the classmates site says it is page 60/61.

He was such a cutie. The wavy, blonde hair kinda reminds me of "Jason".

Not sure, my guess is since no drugs or alcohol or other vehicle was involved, that it was probably was one of the only options left that made sense? Might have been by tire patterns on the road also.

If I can figure out how to attach an image, I will. :o

Oh yay me! I figured it out. LOL

And we are certain that "Jason" wasn't driving to relieve Eric (long haul driving) and they were not misidentified due to the seating arragement and assumption Eric was driving? I keep wondering and wondering....for years now....

How did you get that pic so clear and big? I've been over there searching for hours for a Jason ( yes i was going through 4000+ names just in sc alone!), and the pictures are so blurry in the yearbook photo pages. My kindle hates classmates. Are you a paid member? I was thinking about paying thinking that would allow me to do more, and getting out the laptop! If getting out the laptop would be better, i rather not pay lol

Do you have a link, article, or post where I missed that? Thanks. :-)

I can zoom on my laptop, and when I zoom on the classmates page, it is clear. I don't pay. :)

I'm not a paid member, but I used the zoom tool on the website to zoom in as much as it would let me, took a screen shot and then cropped, resized, and adjusted the sharpness a tad.

Wow, the similarities to Jason really are striking. You don't see too many guys with wavy/curly blond hair.

I have popped into this forum every couple months for a long time and just popped in yesterday and was shocked at all the new information on GD. So great that its moving in a direction to get answers for family members and "Jason". I have seen people post that Eric did not go to the concert, how was that learned? I only ask because I attended many Grateful Dead shows in this time period and there were many people who went to the shows just to hang out in the parking lot and never got a ticket and went inside the venue. The parking lot was an experience in itself. I just wondered where that info came from and if it was known he was somewhere else, because he definitely could have met GD in the parking lot hanging out and chose to give him a ride.
