    I originally found out about Anthony from a woman I worked with who had gone to high school with him. We live in Terre Haute, Indiana. Searching for info was made even harder because everyone pronounced his last name "Lawson." I contacted Todd Mathews and he was able to confirm the information about Anthony and get him on the Doe Network.

    The story that I was able to piece together is that several young men were involved in a scheme to make money - possibly check cashing, but I just can't remember. When the scheme began to fall apart, one of the young men turned up murdered. Anthony left home one day with another of the men and never returned. The police were able to make a case in the death of the first man and the killer received life with no parole. Anthony's body has never been found.

    I have tried to keep Anthony's case in the public eye for my friend, who had been very fond of him. It is more difficult for me to get much info because some of the men involved have very large families who still live in the area. Anthony's mother has moved to another town, and the last I knew his sister and brother still live here - but they may have moved by now.

    The only new info that i have been able to find on Anthony is that LE assumes that he is dead and are probably not actively searching for him. They believe that the man in prison for the other man's murder is also guilty of Anthony's.

    Bumping for Anthony.
    There is no statute of limitation on murder.
