Circumstances of Disappearance
Lynn Schuller was last seen on August 6, 1972. Keith Schuller claimed his wife was sleeping when he last saw her. Her husband and their 3-year-old son left their home around 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 6, 1972, while Lynn was still sleeping. When they returned about five hours later, Lynn and her bicycle were gone. The husband then took the boy swimming at Bever Park, after leaving a note for Lynn. About an hour later, they returned home.

Lynn Schuller's bicycle was there but she was missing. The house was undisturbed. All of her belongings, including her purse, were still there. The only items missing were the clothes she was wearing.
Sometime that day, the husband called Lynn's parents and others to say she was missing. A few searches of the area turned up nothing.
The next afternoon, about 24 hours after the husband said he first realized something was wrong, he called the Sheriff's Department to report Lynn as missing. A more extensive search was conducted with the help of dozens of volunteers. Detectives obtained a search warrant and seized several items from the house.
On March 20, 1978, Lynn Schullerwas declared legally dead. She has never been located. Foul play is suspected.

Questions:

1.) Is it known where Lynn's husband took their son, before going swimming? (When they left, when Lynne was still sleeping?)

2.) Was Keith ever considered a suspect in his wife's disappearance? Did he take a polygraph? Results?

3.) What was the status of the couple's marriage at the time that Lynne disappeared? Financial situation of the family? any personality conflicts in the family? Did neighbors and friends suspect anything?

PS. WOW!!!! Check out Charley Project everyone! It answers (or at least, goes into more detail about Lynne's case.) I did not see the Charley Project account of the case when I had posted these questions. I have often wondered why almost always, Charlie Project has more details about cases than Doe Network:

Another good article about the Schuller case:

It sure sounds like the husband is involved. Either directly or at least indirectly.
