    DC - Stephen DeDakis - 22 years old - Washington DC - 20 Aug 2011

    Stephen DeDakis, 22, has been missing since August 20, when he borrowed his father's car and set off for the evening. Around midnight, DeDakis' father reports he got a text message saying Stephen would be home soon. That was the last anyone heard from him.

    From his Find Stephen DeDakis Facebook page:

    "He was last seen with a brown Led Zeppelin T, dark patterned over-shirt, rolled-up sleeves, and brown pants, driving a silver 4-door Volkswagen Passat."

    "John DeDakis, Stephen's father, said the 22-year-old indicated he was on his way home and sent a text message around midnight that read in part: "I'll be home soon."'

    It could be nothing but the way this was worded made me wonder what the rest of the text message was. Also, I wonder about his route home. So often we hear of people going missing on their way home only to find out later they went off the road somewhere.

    I hope this is not the case and Stephen comes home safely.

    If you listen to the podcast of the Tony Kornheiser radio show from Monday (2nd hour, google 'espn 980 audio vault') he talks about a dead person in a car found on his street (in a swank part of DC). This almost has to be DeDakis. Kornheiser says the car was on the street for a few days before the body was seen in the car. Doesn't know what happened, obviously. Horribly sad.

    Have no idea what happened. Foul play would be really, really odd. From the Kornheiser show, it seems most likely a suicide.
