Schulze, circa 1971

Lynne Kathryn Schulze
Missing since December 10, 1971 from Middlebury, Addison County, Vermont
Classification: Endangered Missing



Vital Statistics

Date Of Birth: 1953
Age at Time of Disappearance: 18 years old
Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5’3”; 115 lbs.
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Light brown hair; blue eyes.
Marks, Scars: Severe acne on face at time of disappearance.
Clothing: Blue jeans, brown ski parka and maroon pullover sweater.
DNA: Available




Circumstances of Disappearance
Schulze was last seen at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont on December 10, 1971.
She headed across campus to take an exam when, friends said, she turned around and went back to retrieve a pencil from her dorm room.
Other than a report that she allegedly was spotted walking along U.S. 7 south of Middlebury later that day, she was never seen again. She left behind all her clothes and her wallet.
Lynne and a group of her friends got together one weekend in the fall of 1971, for a Leon Russell concert in New Hampshire. After the concert, the group all all piled into a dorm room and talked all the way into the morning. One of her friends talked about a fantasy he had--of faking his own death and starting over, somewhere else, all by himself. Lynne said she'd been feeling that way herself.
In truth, the friend never really intended to follow through with his plan. "The truth is, it was only talk. We were just two scared, lonely kids talking our way through the night. Or so I thought."
But in December, Lynne Schulze left her dorm at Middlebury College and headed off to class. Then she disappeared from the face of the earth. There is no suspect information, however, her disappearance is considered suspicious.

Excellent article - well worth reading!

Excerpts:

http://www.addisonindependent.com/News/062305missing.html

FRUITLESS SEARCH

Police could not confirm that report, nor other alleged sightings of Schulze at Middlebury’s old Lockwood’s Restaurant, in Rutland and in Burlington.

An article in the Jan. 27 issue of the Addison County Independent reported a Bristol man had given a ride to a woman fitting Schulze’s description. The man said he had taken her to the interstate, where she planned to hitchhike to Washington, D.C. But at the same time, calls came in from Northampton, Mass., and Clare*mont, N.H., from people swearing they’d seen Schulze.

Meanwhile, Otto and Virginia Schulze — Lynne’s parents — came to Middlebury to clean out their daughter’s dorm room and join in the search. The couple circulated photos of Lynne, but every promising lead turned into a dead end.

Authorities thought they’d solved the mystery in May 1972, when they believed they’d tracked Schulze to a commune in Greensboro Bend in Orleans County.

Former Middlebury Police Chief Robert Van Ness reported that two officers — including former Vergennes Police Chief Norman Gadue — had positively identified her as being at the commune. Van Ness was so sure he’d located Schulze, he was preparing to cancel a 50-state missing persons alarm that had been sounded after her disappearance.

The commune tip, however, proved to be a case of mistaken identity.

Subsequent police interviews with some of Schulze’s friends added a further element of intrigue into the case.

“She apparently had made some comments about dropping out of society,” Boe said. “Some people thought she had more or less succeeded.”

Days turned into months, and months turned into years. The more time went by, the colder Schulze’s trail became. The hole in Otto and Virginia Schulze’s heart grew larger. There was nothing in the family history to indicate friction between Lynne and her parents.

“As a parent, your heart goes out to the parents in this case,” Middlebury Police Chief Tom Hanley said. “They went through a whole lifetime, not knowing what happened to their daughter. That is a motivating factor in keeping this case alive.”

MODERN TECHNOLOGY

Otto and Virginia Schulze died several years ago, but not before leaving a genetic key that could one day unlock the secret of their daughter’s fate.

In 1992, authorities went to Florida to take DNA samples from the parents that, together with dental records, could produce a match for remains that fit Lynne Schulze’s profile.

<snip>

“Recently, we have gotten lots of tips from the Doe Network,” Boe said.

The hottest of those tips came in 2002, when authorities in Columbus, Ohio, uncovered a set of bones they believed could have belonged to Schulze. Middlebury police sent along Lynne’s dental records and DNA profile.

“They could not rule her in, or rule her out,” Boe said of the results of that investigation.

PURSUING LOCAL LEADS

But Middlebury police have not been overly reliant on such Web sites; they’ve been doing their own field work on the case.

Hanley recalled that in 1991, a fisherman snagged some hair while angling beneath the Otter Creek falls.

“We put some divers in, but found nothing,” Hanley said. “It was human hair, but not consistent with (Lynne’s).”

Middlebury police occasionally check the banks of the Otter Creek, to see if any human remains may have washed up on shore.

“She didn’t just vaporize,” Hanley said, summarizing the frustration of his department.

It’s a frustration that’s been exacerbated by false murder confessions from inmates in prisons stretching from New York to Florida. One suspect, implicated in the disappearance of some teen-aged girls in upstate New York at the time, confessed to killing Schulze.

“Each time, (the suspects) were ruled out,” Boe said. “They were trying to stay their own executions.”

Authorities have also looked into cults, to see if Schulze may have been brainwashed into abandoning her former life. Again, no sign of her.

“The whole surroundings of how she disappeared mystifies us,” Boe said.

Okay, just thinking aloud here....

What if she's alive and an accomplished vet?

Dr. Kate Schulze

Kate Schulze, DVM

Dr. Kate Schulze graduated from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1985. She began practicing small animal medicine and surgery in California and three years later undertook a one-year internship at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. In 1989, she returned to the United States and to small animal practice in California.

Dr. Schulze and her husband, Ray, moved to Tucson in 1992. It was Ray's work with Research Corporation that enabled them to return to the desert.

Note: I checked it out and I believe Schulze is her maiden name, Kelleman is her married name. Ok, Lynne would be 52 years old now. If we backtrack, and assume Dr. Schulze is Lynne was 32 when she graduated. Lynne was 18 when she disappeared... that would leave about 10 years to establish herself in Texas and go back to school.

Is it possible?

Does the photo look like a woman who's around 50 (personally I was thinking 40s but then the desert air is good on the skin!)? Also the Doc's face seems to be longer... yet is still similiar to Lynne's... maybe family traits, after all they are both Schulze's?

Does this make any sense????

Pondering... that link does not work. Is there another one you can post with a picture of this woman?



The thing that is wierd to me about this case is that she would voluntarily drop out of sight. Why would someone do that to their family?? I mean I do not know what her relationship with her parents was but that is cruel. There are alot of unanswered questions....

This case is very similar to that of Paula Jean Welden, who disappeared from Bennington (VT) College, some 80 miles from Middlebury, in December of '46. It was rumored at the time that Paula was unhappy with her life and disappeared voluntarily, also. Since Paula's case had nearly taken on the status of an urban legend, maybe Ms. Schulze drew some inspiration from Paula?

Since the beginning of time, people have left their life behind, on purpose, and struck out on their own.

Sometimes its because of abuse, sometimes its because of another's influence, sometimes its in pursuit of a lifestyle, and sometimes its because they just don't live up to the image their current life represents.

In Lynne's case, she had just started at the school 3 months before. Didn't have any close friends there, etc.. Maybe she decided to follow someone who she knew, who had decided to study elsewhere?

Maybe she became pregnant and knew her folks couldn't accept that (there is no evidence of this by the way).

Until they find her, or her remains, the mystery of why remains hidden.... unfortunately sometimes its "Just Because".

An article in the below link written by a college friend of Lynne's.



Looking For Lynne Schulze
I could tell you that I didn't know where we were going, that angling toward the upper left of Vermont was just random chance. It wouldn't be true. There was one person I really wanted to see again. We peeled off at Bethel, Vermont, headed west on 107, and turned north on Route 100, the winding two-lane that seems to connect every ski mountain in the state. It was getting to be early evening, and the road was all but deserted. We may have trespassed against a motor-vehicle code section or two. The BMW was a more than willing co-conspirator: It's one of those bikes that feels happiest when it's tilted way over, and I found myself happy to oblige.

I stopped for dinner at a roadside burger stand in Hancock. I was the last customer of the night, and when my burger was ready, the cook came out of his hot trailer and sat with me at one of the picnic tables. Larry Jakes told me he had fought in Korea, and when he came back he settled here, in this valley in the shadow of the Green Mountains. Over the years, he had done about everything he wanted, except one--he had never been to Paris. And this last year, he had done that, too. I thanked Larry, finished my fries, closed my jacket tight, and headed up over the hill toward Middlebury.

Hmmm... This is very ironic. Read this article by Lynne SchulzeCommitment



by: Lynne Schulze







A true commitment is a heart felt promise to yourself, from which you will NOT back down, no matter what the circumstances may be!



Many people have good intentions and dreams, but only a few are willing to commit to what is necessary to achieve them. Do a review on your commitment level, ask yourself these questions and be honest with the answers.


How badly do I want to achieve my dreams?

What will achieving my dreams mean to me?

What price am I willing to pay to make this happen?

Do I believe I can?





The ability to achieve your goals and dreams will be determined by the level to which YOU are willing to commit. NOTHING is as important as this fact!



There is a huge difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in something you only do it when it is convenient. When you are committed to something you accept NO excuses.



The enemy of commitment is resistance. Anything you wish to achieve that is worthwhile, will meet with resistance. This can take the form of, family friends, advisers, self-doubt, self-defeating habits, lack of money, regulations, peer-pressure and many other unforseen difficulties, such as illness etc.



This can leave you questioning your dreams or even your sanity! Take some comfort in the fact that you are not alone. All those who wish to make a better life for themselves, will meet with resistence



Think of athletes or performers in any field. The endless hours of practice and learning. The lack of a social life. The defeats . The huge amount of sacrifices and challenges these people have to meet so they can fulfill their dreams. Only YOU can decide whether the rewards you look forward to are worth your effort.



A serious commitment to a goal does not mean you have to take all the joy and fun out of life. Laughter and humour are an integeral part of the human make up. Intergrate fun into your daily goals.



Learn the difference betweeen giving up and giving in. There may be many times when giving up a certain direction or idea, would be wise. Giving in, on the other hand, should never even be considered.



Life presents itself one day at a time. Take your commitments in daily bite-sized pieces. You can do without mental indigestion! One brick at a time, a house is built. One stroke at a time, the artist paints!

I think Bundy visited Vermont prior to 1971, but I could be mistaken.

Either way I don't think that's a good reason to assume he was involved in Lynne's case. Sadly I'm sure that even if he was in Vermont at the time, there were many other predators there.

I wonder what the description of her at the bus station was like...just one person or a group of people that saw someone resembling her. If she did have $30 in cash on her when she went to the exam I wonder what it was for? That is a lot of money to carry in '71 just to be going to take an exam where you don't need any money.

Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

Missing Since: December 10, 1971 from Middlebury, Vermont
Classification: Endangered Missing
Age: 18 years old
Height and Weight: 5'3, 115 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Light brown hair, blue eyes. Schulze had severe acne at the time of her disappearance.
Clothing/Jewelry Description: Blue jeans, a maroon pullover sweater, and a brown ski parka.
Medical Conditions: Schulze may have been mildly depressed at the time of her disappearance.


Details of Disappearance

Schulze was last seen leaving her dormitory on the Middlebury College campus in Middlebury, Vermont on December 10, 1971, the first day of final exams before Christmas break started. She was on her way to take a final exam with her friends when she said she had forgotten her favorite pen and was going to go back to get it. Schulze never arrived at the exam and has never been heard from again. She left her identification, checkbook and all her personal belongings behind when she vanished. She may have been carrying $30 in cash with her. Campus security was alerted to Schulze's disappearance two days after she was last seen, but her parents were not notified for a week.

Schulze had mentioned the idea of faking her own death and starting life anew prior to her disappearance, but her friends did not take her seriously. In her letters to family and friends back home she admitted she felt homesick and was considering withdrawing from school in the future, but she never indicated she was planning on dropping out of sight or leaving college before the term was over, and she did register for the next semester's classes prior to her disappearance.
There were several possible sightings of Schulze after her disappearance, but none of them were confirmed. Several people made confessions of involvement in her case, but all of their statements turned out to be false. Little evidence is available as to her fate, but Schulze's disappearance is considered suspicious. She was a freshman at Middlebury in 1971, and lived in Simsbury, Connecticut when she was not at college. Her case is unsolved.

Some agencies give the date of Schulze's disappearance as December 11, 1971.

Two students-- both missing-- both from the same college-- and neither with an obvious motive to disappear. The difference-- 19-year-old Nick Garza went missing several weeks ago. Lynne Schulze hasn't been seen or heard from since 1971, when she left a group of friends because she had forgotten her pen.

"So she said, 'I'm going to go get it. Go ahead without me.' So she went back to her dorm room to get her pen and never showed up," said Lynne Schulze's sister Anne Schulze.

This disappearance has always intrigued me because she was exactly my age. Every time I see her photo it seems like she was right out of my high school yearbook. This article has today's date on the front page but I think the article is actually from about 2-3 years ago. Interesting nonetheless.

Missing woman mystery continues ...

JOYCE PRESCOTT PERSING, left, Michelle Factor, Mary Jane Oresik and Susan Randall look through the Addison Independent archives from 1971 in search of stories about the mysterious disappearance of Middlebury College student Lynne Schulze. The women, three of whom were childhood friends of Schulze, were in Middlebury last week to look for clues in the unsolved case.

Circumstances of Disappearance


Schulze was last seen at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont on December 10, 1971.

She headed across campus to take an exam when, friends said, she turned around and went back to retrieve a pencil from her dorm room. She didn’t show up for the exam. Later, her friends went back to her room. All her clothes was there, but she was gone. Her wallet was still in the room. Other than a report that she allegedly was spotted walking along U.S. 7 south of Middlebury later that day, she was never seen again.

Lynne Schulze entered Middlebury College as a freshman in September 1971. While authorities believe she may have been a little depressed and self-conscious — due in part to an acne condition — she appeared to be well-adjusted. According to authorities, she was a typical, wholesome, all-American kid off at college.

While I barely remember Lynne as she was my older sister's friend, I do know that no one who knew her, friends or family believe that she would ever have hurt her family in that way. The relationship she shared with her parents and siblings was not one where she would need to "disappear", it was open and loving. As for the photo - this looks nothing like Lynne did as a teenager, nor does it bear resemblance to her siblings who are now of a similar age.

I still wonder if she could have been a Bundy victim. In Ann Rule's book she mentions that in going back over her notes she realized that it was the fall of 1971 when he visited Vermont, not 1969 as she had previously thought. It just sounds so much like something Bundy would do, stalk a girl on a college campus & lure her to his car in the few second when nobody was looking, never to be seen again. Ann Rule also mentions a young woman who was killed in Vermont in the fall of 1971 in the manner that Bundy killed the Florida sorority victims, strangling them in bed as they slept, sexually assaulting them & beating them severely in the head. This murder was never solved.
Also, I can't seem to find in any article anywhere whether Lynne's pen was in her room after she disappeared or not. It might not help much to know this, but at least we'd know if she made it to her room or not.
As for the Alcala photo, I do see some similarity. I have a feeling that several of our missing ladies were his victims. There are many more photos which haven't even been made public, apparently due to the sexual nature of them.

Schulze was last seen at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont on December 10, 1971. She headed across campus to take an exam when, friends said, she turned around and went back to retrieve a pencil from her dorm room.

She didn’t show up for the exam.

Later, her friends went back to her room. All her clothes was there, but she was gone. Her wallet was still in the room.

Other than a report that she allegedly was spotted walking along U.S. 7 south of Middlebury later that day, she was never seen again.

Lynne Schulze entered Middlebury College as a freshman in September 1971. While authorities believe she may have been a little depressed and self-conscious — due in part to an acne condition — she appeared to be well-adjusted. According to authorities, she was a typical, wholesome, all-American kid off at college.

Family Hopes For Break In Long-Missing Vt Student

Woman Disappears After Returning To Dorm

(December 2011 Article)

Lynne Kathryn Schulze's family and friends are still hoping for a break that could solve the mystery of what led to the Vermont college student's disappearance 40 years ago.

Lynne's younger sister, Anne, who lives in New Hampshire, tells the Burlington Free Press that the family hopes Lynne's remains will be found or at least it gets some confirmation about her death. But her family and friends don't believe that Lynne is alive and suspect she was killed or accidentally died soon after she disappeared.

As a freshman at Middlebury College, Lynne Kathryn Schulze was walking to a final exam with fellow students when she said she had to get something from her dorm room. She left them to head back, and then vanished. She's still missing....

Hmmm... This is very ironic. Read this article by Lynne SchulzeCommitment



by: Lynne Schulze







A true commitment is a heart felt promise to yourself, from which you will NOT back down, no matter what the circumstances may be!



Many people have good intentions and dreams, but only a few are willing to commit to what is necessary to achieve them. Do a review on your commitment level, ask yourself these questions and be honest with the answers.


How badly do I want to achieve my dreams?

What will achieving my dreams mean to me?

What price am I willing to pay to make this happen?

Do I believe I can?





The ability to achieve your goals and dreams will be determined by the level to which YOU are willing to commit. NOTHING is as important as this fact!



There is a huge difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in something you only do it when it is convenient. When you are committed to something you accept NO excuses.



The enemy of commitment is resistance. Anything you wish to achieve that is worthwhile, will meet with resistance. This can take the form of, family friends, advisers, self-doubt, self-defeating habits, lack of money, regulations, peer-pressure and many other unforseen difficulties, such as illness etc.



This can leave you questioning your dreams or even your sanity! Take some comfort in the fact that you are not alone. All those who wish to make a better life for themselves, will meet with resistence



Think of athletes or performers in any field. The endless hours of practice and learning. The lack of a social life. The defeats . The huge amount of sacrifices and challenges these people have to meet so they can fulfill their dreams. Only YOU can decide whether the rewards you look forward to are worth your effort.



A serious commitment to a goal does not mean you have to take all the joy and fun out of life. Laughter and humour are an integeral part of the human make up. Intergrate fun into your daily goals.



Learn the difference betweeen giving up and giving in. There may be many times when giving up a certain direction or idea, would be wise. Giving in, on the other hand, should never even be considered.



Life presents itself one day at a time. Take your commitments in daily bite-sized pieces. You can do without mental indigestion! One brick at a time, a house is built. One stroke at a time, the artist paints!

WOW!

Just reading these quotes makes me think if this is the Lynne Schultze we are looking for, she may have disappeared completely voluntarily. They just sound like things she would say.

I reread Charlie Project's account of Lynne's case, and it said that at one time she spoke of "faking her own death." I wonder what the set of circumstances were when she said this and to whom did she say this?

And with all due respect to the earlier poster, I feel Lynne looks in these photos a lot like her sister Janet.

A nephew (getting picture taken with Santa Claus!) she sadly never knew--the resemblance is stunning.

I would like to know how far Lynne's Final Exam building on campus was, in relation to her dorm room? Any streets or roads she had to cross? What time was the exam, and what was the viability like? How many people were around the areas she walked? This information would be helpful in determining if Lynne was abducted, injured somewhere, or left on her own accord. I lean towards abduction. However, I don't think there is any evidence to support ANY of those three theories. It seems that if she had some sort of accident, and was injured in the vicinity of campus, or tragically killed nearby, that she or her body would have been found.

Most likely she went out of the area, got into a car, or may have been forced into a car. A starting point would be, did Lynne make it back to her dorm to get her favorite pen/pencil? If she did, something happened to her on the way back to the exam building. If she didn't, something happened on the way to her dorm room. I don't remember if Lynne was living in a single dorm or had roommates.

I wonder why there doesn't seem to be any info available about whether her pen was still there or not? Surely the police know whether it was missing. If it was still there then we know she didn't make it back, as you said Satch. Sounds like she thought the pen would bring her good luck on the exam. I too lean toward abduction as most likely. If nothing from her room was missing then I doubt she ran away without any of her belongings. Most girls would take at least a change of clothes.

And I still wonder about Ted Bundy, although I know it's a long shot, but he was known to have visited Vermont a couple times (maybe more) in the early late 60s to early 70s. He liked to hang around college campuses and Lynne looks like his type: pretty with long straight hair.
