Scary case. Stephanie was babysitting on Halloween, and some guy snagged her, they think. He is currently in jail on unrelated charges.

This family needs some answers. They have been waiting far too long.

Much love and prayers for this gal and her family, Lanie

this is surely a sad case as all of these are, the man in jail for other un related charges might be the man? I did a search for the news paper in that area " myrtle creek oregon and typed in the search feild and found out the more info on this missing child. what a sad thing too have to go that long not knowing what happened to your child.. I wonder if the police have thought that what if she was assulted inside the home by this man? and disposed of somewhere near the home? wooded areas and such. just a thought. or at least had been maybe stalking the neighborhood since children were going to be out. maybe he saw her giving out candy to some trick or treaters and decide to do something later. god bless this family :twocents:

I have not been able to find a web site on Stephanie. Would be great if they had one, so we could sign a guest book.

Maybe someone can make her one, and then the family will see it!

Thanks, y'all, for caring for the missing.

Oregon is a lot like Florida- it has a disproportionate amount of missing, kidnapped and murdered children. If my memory is correct, LE is almost positive the man in jail is the perp in this case but cannot prove it. No body, no evidence.

I found this article and thought I'd post it, in regards to Stephanie Condon.

http://www.dcso.com/long_term_missing.asp (scroll down a ways until you come to her information.)

They are interested in finding a man by the name of Dale Wayne Hill in connection with this case, as well as his .38 caliber revolver and 1991 Ford F-150 4X4 cab. Maroon with gray & black graphic stripes, Sunroof, & visor over windshield. Louvered 5th wheel style tailgate. OREGON LICENSE 986-APQ.
All information is on this page.

My thoughts & prayers are with the Condon family. I'm hoping Stephanie comes home - safe & sound!

I found another article about Stephanie, but I don't really understand it. Perhaps someone would like to take a look at it and tell me what in the heck they're talking about? :confused:



From the Article:
The purpose of this commentary is twofold. The first and most important is to speculate on the location of Stephanie Condon at the present time. The secondary reason is to compare data obtained by viewers that worked this target approximately a year apart from each other. The work presented by viewers of the Hawaii Remote Viewers’ Guild substantiates the theory that time; distance and space are irrelevant factors in the collection of congruent target data. It also provides an interesting insight in the study of consciousness and the application of how our subconscious was able to extrapolate data on a target worked a year apart.

While the following statement is simply conjecture, it is still interesting to learn how viewers were able to obtain very similar information on a target worked approximately one year apart. Perhaps this presentation may simply be a testimony to the adage repeatedly taught to HRVG students, “If you can remote view one data element on a target, you can remote view all data.”
Article Link:

I know it's several pages long, and I've read through the first few pages, but I don't really understand their purpose. Are they testing out theories?

Thanks!

I remember reading this several years ago when it first appeared online. The idea was to get all these people thinking about Stephanie without knowing who they were actually thinking about and to record their perceptions of what happened to her and where she is now. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that, given the mountainous and woodsy terrain of Oregon (where Stephanie lived) and the averages which say that most stranger abductions end in the death of the victim, she is most likely deceased and dumped in the mountains near her home. But since these people didn't know that it was Stephanie, it's rather intriguing.

Details of Disappearance

Condon was babysitting at her cousin's mobile home in the 160 block of Henry Street in Tri-City, Oregon during the evening hours of on October 30, 1998. She was caring for twin two-year-old girls in the house at the time. Condon's cousin returned home at approximately 1:00 to 1:30 a.m. on October 31 and discovered that Condon was missing. The trailer was tidy and the children were safely sleeping in their beds at the time.

There was no sign of forced entry to the trailer, and neighbors did not hear anything out of the ordinary. The trailer's front door was locked and the television and lights were turned on. Condon's backpack, containing her homework, money, clothes, and shoes were inside the house. She has never been heard from again.

Authorities view Dale Wayne Hill as a possible suspect in Condon's case. His burthdate is February 1, 1970; he was 28 years old in October 1998. He is 6'1 and 175 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. Hill wears gold-framed eyeglasses. He may have had a moustache at the time Condon disappeared. Hill was driving his 1991 maroon and red Ford F-150 pickup truck on the night of Condon's disappearance. The vehicle has gray and black graphic stripes, a sun roof and a visor over the windshield. It also has a louvered fifth wheel-style tailgate. The truck has Oregon license plates 986-APQ.

Investigators believe that Hill may have sold a handgun that was involved in Condon's disappearance. Photos of Hill, his vehicle and a similar weapon are posted below this case summary. The gun is described as a .38-caliber revolver with a two-inch barrel. It is marketed by the European American Armory (EAA). The handgun's serial number is 1516967. Authorities believe that Hill may have sold the weapon in the Myrtle Creek, Oregon area shortly after Condon's disappearance. It has never been located.

Hill has not been charged with any crime relating to Condon's disappearance. He admits that he visited her at the trailer that night, but denies having harmed her. He was imprisoned for an unrelated robbery charge after her disappearance, but was paroled in 2004. Condon resided with her family in Riddle, Oregon in 1998. She was an honor student at Riddle High School at the time of her disappearance, and is described as a responsible girl who was on her school junior varsity volleyball team. She hoped to attend Southern Oregon University and study draft engineering. Her loved ones said that it is extremely uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Foul play is suspected in Condon's case.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for new information in the 1998 disappearance of an Oregon girl.

On Oct. 30, 1998, 14-year-old Stephanie Condon vanished while babysitting at a Myrtle Creek home. She was wearing pajamas and didn't take shoes or her purse. For weeks, volunteers scoured Douglas County but could not find the honor student.

Detectives named Dale Wayne Hill as a suspect but never formally charged him. Hill is currently serving time in prison for a different crime and denies having anything to do with the disappearance.

The FBI and the Douglas County Sheriff's Office continue to investigate and hope that the reward brings new tips in the case.

SUBJECT/INCIDENT: MISSING PERSON
DATE OF INCIDENT: 10-31-98 --
TIME OF INCIDENT: 0130
INCIDENT LOCATION: RESIDENTIAL AREA OF TRI CITY, MYRTLE CREEK
DOUGLAS COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
CASE #: 98-6083
Stephanie Condon, age 14, of Riddle Oregon was reported missing under suspicious circumstances. Ms. Condon was baby sitting twin two year old girls at a Tri City home last night. When the parent of the infants arrived home at around 1:30 am, Ms. Condon was not inside the home. Both infants were located unharmed inside the home. This is out of character for Condon. Her disappearance is suspect and under active investigation.
Stephanie is believed to have been wearing pajamas and no shoes.
She has been entered into the NCIC system as an endangered missing person.
Anyone having information concerning the whereabouts of Ms. Condon is asked to contact Detective Joe Perkins, Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS HANDGUN? http://www.dcso.com/Images/gun2.jpg
NARRATIVE:
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is attempting to locate a handgun that may be involved in the disappearance of a missing juvenile, Stephanie Elizabeth Condon. The gun is described as a .38 caliber revolver with a two inch barrel, marketed by European American Armory (EAA). The serial number for this gun is #1516967.
The gun may have been sold in a tavern or lounge in the Myrtle Creek area. This handgun was possibly sold by Dale Hill in the Myrtle Creek area. Investigators would like to talk to anyone that is aware of this sale, knows the current location of the gun, or has seen Mr. Hill in possession of this gun. Investigators know this handgun was purchased in Roseburg on September 13, 1996, and was owned by Hill. Anyone with information regarding this handgun is asked to contact the Douglas County sheriff’s office 541-957-2099, or 541-440-4458.

As in the earlier public request for help regarding Mr. Hill's Ford pick-up, we are asking anyone who may have seen him in the area of 161 Henry Street, in the Tri City area, during the evening of October 30th into the morning hours of October 31, 1998, to contact our office. We are interested in talking to anyone who has seen Hill or his vehicle on any back road or secluded area since the time of Stephanie's disappearance.

Stephanie's information has been removed from the NMCC and Polly Klass Foundation websites. Would they do that without having located her body? I thought that even if someone was convicted of a missing person's murder, as long as there was no body the missing persons sites usually stayed up?

RIDDLE, Ore. (AP) -- The mother of a Douglas County girl who went missing nine years ago hopes a newly launched Web site will persuade her daughter's abductor to reveal the location of the body.

"It's not like they're going into the cops and confessing, they're just telling me," Christine Condon said of the site, http://www.findstephanienow.com .

Stephanie Condon of Riddle was 14 when she vanished from a family member's home while baby-sitting on the night before Halloween in 1998. Douglas County authorities suspected foul play and have been investigating ever since.

The Web site is one of several efforts made this year to keep the case fresh in the minds of the public. The sheriff's office flooded the county with posters, the local Cold Case Squad was assigned to help with the investigation, and a reward of up to $20,000 has been offered by the FBI and a private source for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Authorities in Nevada say they're holding a suspect in the death of a 14-year-old southern Oregon girl who disappeared about 10 years ago while baby-sitting a cousin's twins.

Lyon County sheriff's Lt. Rob Hall says Dale Wayne Hill was arrested Wednesday on a charge of failing to register as a felon. A background check revealed the alleged error after investigators from Douglas County sought assistance.

Authorities say Hill was a suspect at the time Stephanie Condon was reported missing on Oct. 31, 1998. Her remains were found March 13 by a man walking his dogs on a logging road.



Prayers for Stephanie's family, may they find peace of heart and justice.

Suspect in Stephanie Condon disappearance scheduled to go free

The man identified as the prime suspect in the disappearance and death of 14-year-old Stephanie Condon is scheduled to be released from a Nevada jail Wednesday morning after serving most of a 30-day jail sentence on an unrelated charge.
Kevin Phillips, an employee at the Lyon County Jail in Yerington, Nev., said this morning that so far, there are no holds from other law enforcement agencies that would keep 39-year-old Dale Wayne Hill in jail.
"We've had no requests from anyone to hold him,'' Phillips said. "He will be released Wednesday morning at 6 a.m."

Less than 24 hours after Riddle teenager Stephanie Condon disappeared the night before Halloween in 1998, a detective asked Dale Wayne Hill, “Did you kill Stephanie Condon?”

“I appreciate you asking me that,” Hill reportedly told lead investigator Joe Perkins before changing the subject.

The jury was scheduled today to take a bus tour to see about a dozen sites expected to be mentioned in testimony during the trial. The trial will resume Tuesday after a three-day break.

The jury was apparently not allowed to hear about this man pleading "no contest" for breaking into a house and stealing womens panties..that is sickening. Sure, it may be prejudicial, but juries should be allowed to know about the person on trial. If he had been acquitted of the charge, that would be one thing.

I too feel he did kill Stephanie and now will never pay for it.

I feel like he killed her too. Some of the testimony in the trial did help the defense in creating reasonable doubt though...I thought the testimony from her friend about the two boys who were there that night, possibly doing drugs with her, was powerful to the defense.

I am from Douglas County. Everyone here thinks he did it, but with so much time passed it was a hard case to win. I was so thankful when they found her remains and charged him. I think they thought their case was as good as it would ever be and they tried the case the best that they could. The evidence just wasn't enough. I think the information on him and his priors should have come in. Maybe that would have been enough to help the jury find him guilty.

Unfortunately it looks like they didn't have any DNA. And the prosecution just didn't make the case. Unfortunately, now no one will ever be held responsible for Stephanie's death. But at least they found her.

Video interview with Stephanie's parents on this link.

'I want to make his life miserable. In the legal way'

Marty Condon, alongside his wife, spoke about the case for the first time Wednesday. Their message was simple.
"I want to be perfectly clear: I do not want anything to happen to Hill. Absolutely do not," Marty Condon said. "I don't want people to build their frustrations, you know, I don't want nothing to happen. I want him to live with this for the rest of his life. And I want to help him. I want to help him have a miserable life."

This is so sad. Another victim in this horrible case:

"The sheriff's office said in a statement Friday that that 53-year-old Martin Condon died after officers arrived at his house near Canyonville late Wednesday.

The statement said his wife, Christine, had told dispatchers he'd shot himself, but the statement didn't elaborate."

RIP Marty

I just saw that article on another forum - so sad. A poster on the site where I saw it was speculating that maybe her dad had something to do with her death, which I thought was ludicrous. I can't imagine the pain that family has endured for so long.
