    NC - Lindsey Stikeleather, 88, Statesville, 25 March 2013 *Arrest*

    http://www.wsoctv.com/news/news/loca...-monday/nW5Zy/

    No one has seen 88-year-old Lindsey Stikeleather since he went to a bank Monday afternoon. The white Jeep pickup was spotted at the intersection west of Statesville.
    They said Stikeleather was in excellent shape and exercised on a treadmill every day.

    They say the 88-year old had left to go pick up some money owed to him for past-due rent and then was supposed to go to the bank. Deputies believe he disappeared following his trip to the bank.

    So, there is a witness who saw someone walk away from the truck but they aren't sure it was him. Just thinking out loud....the way an 88-year old would get out of a truck and walk away would be distinct and noticeable. I might say, "An old man got out of the truck." Of course, a younger witness (say, 25 to 35ish) might not be able to make that distinction - anyone over 50 might be old. Anyway, my thought is that someone other than he got out of the truck, probably someone younger (not surprisingly).

    And no indication of dementia? Getting lost between bank and home?

    How sad to deal with this sort of thing at that age...

    "Man, 88, missing under 'suspicious' circumstances"

    Stikeleather was last seen wearing dark blue dress pants, a light blue shirt, tan windbreaker jacket and a blue cap.
    His vehicle was a white 1990 Jeep Comanche pickup which was found abandoned at the intersection of Lewis Ferry and Lamb Roads.

    He & his wife Ruth have been married for 69 years. Bless her, I know she is so worried. Reading this made me cry.

    "I'm so worried I don't know what to do. Because it has been a good bit and it is so cold and I do hope he is in some place that is warm. I think the Lord will send him back to us in a while," said Ruth Stikeleather.

    I wish we knew if the renter was angry about paying back rent. What was his demeanor at the bank? Why would anyone just abandon their vehicle on the side of the road? His poor wife. I hope this case has a happy ending and he is found soon!

    Why does it take so long for LE to let people know to bolo for a missing person?! I live nearby and just heard about this Wednesday night.- and no info on search parties. Geez. I know it doesn't look good, but I am still willing to search and look for Mr. Stikeleather wherever LE wants to send me. Jmo
    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    Carp. New article says his tenant said his moped broke down and Mr. stikeleather went to help. He was seen at the bank, but no word if anyone else was with him or in the truck. And shoot, a perp could have left the moped down the road, dropped off the truck, and then walked back to his ride. Jmo and the tenant may have nothing to do with it. Just a scenario.

    It sure sounds hinky that he goes missing after meeting up with someone who owed him money and then supposedly has a problem with their vehicle. Was he made to go into bank so it would look like his routine while perp waited on him and most of money stolen prior to bank trip? Did he deposit money then perp wanted bank info for access to his account, he refused and was harmed. I hope none of the above happened and he is found safe.

    Oh no, I"m at work crying at my desk. Why did it have to end this way?!!

    I'm certain Mr. Stikeleather would've given this man money (since robbery was one of his charges) as opposed to being killed.

    Prayers for his wife of 69 years, Ruth. Prayers for the entire family.

    I know so sad.

    They have posted his mug shot and I don't doubt he was on some from of drugs. Looks like a real winner.
