    IA - Lynn Louise Schuller, 26, Cedar Rapids, 6 Aug 1972

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2779dfia.html

    Case File 2779DFIA

    Lynn Louise Schuller
    Missing since August 6, 1972 from Cedar Rapids, Linn County, Iowa
    Classification: Endangered Missing



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Vital Statistics

    Age at Time of Disappearance: 26 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'5"; 120 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Red/strawberry blonde hair; brown eyes. She wore brown, horned-rimmed glasses.
    Clothing: Believed to have been wearing green shorts, a green striped top and white tennis shoes.
    AKA: Lynn Louise Tickner


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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:

    http://iowacoldcases.org/case-summaries/lynn-schuller/

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

    The link above has so many comments; who knows the validity to them but I just wanted to point it out.
