    MT - Dexter Stefonek, 67, Dawson County, 19 November 1985

    Here's an old article featuring the unsolved murder of Dexter Stefonek, a 67 year old gentleman murdered near Glendive, MT, in November 1985.

    Your thoughts about this case, sleuthers?

    Snipped:

    Stefonek was en route from Corbett, Ore., where he had been visiting his son, to his home in Wisconsin when he stopped at the Glendive rest area around 7 a.m. to take a break after driving all night, she said.

    He was abducted, killed and his body was hidden under a box spring at a private dump used by about five families. McGinn said the murderer drove Stefonek's car back to the rest area and set it on fire with gasoline.

    Witnesses recall seeing a light-complected and clean shaving man carrying two large jugs of gasoline to Dexter's vehicle. This person could have been driving a white Chevy 4X4 with a blue horizontal stripe and a white camper shell with an Arizona license plate in a Phoenix license plate holder.

    One week later, the authorities found a final clue in the men's room at the Bad Route rest area: a small line of graffiti written in pencil. It began with the words "Hot Jock." Police have not released the entire message, but believe it may be linked to Dexter Stefonek's murder. Coroner Silha believed the killer wrote it there for the police to find:

    "My own theory is that someone wanted us to see it. Hot Jock could be a CB handle. It referred to 'shot.' It had 'Wisconsin' in the graffiti and a date indicating November."

    Police have only two clues that might identify Dexter Stefonek's killer: the description of the suspect's vehicle and the sketchy description of the suspect himself. The vehicle was a white Chevy 4 x 4 with a wide blue horizontal stripe. It had a white camper shell top and a cattle guard on the front bumper. It also had Arizona plates, with a Phoenix license plate holder.

    The suspect is middle aged, at least six feet tall, light-complected and clean shaven. He may use the nickname or CB handle, Hot Jock.
