    Case History

    The victim was located on April 8, 2006 in the woods along Lotus Road off Louisiana 59, near Mandeville, Louisiana.

    Authorities did not publicize the death at the time because it appeared to be a suicide. A nylon rope hanging from a tree was tied around the man's neck, which had been broken by the apparent hanging.

    He was likely homeless or a loner, with few, if any, ties to the area.

    Wow, I never heard of this case so i assume it was lost in the aftermath of Katrina, when bodies were still being found many, many months after.

    I would have paid attention to it because I grew up in Mandeville and it was such a lovely place (this way long ago when it was still just a charming small town, before those "New Orleans transplants" (as Daddy called them) moved there and changed the town into a crowded city with all of the horrors of city life.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    Case Details
    Robert was last heard from several weeks before his birthday in 2003. He called a family member from Pennsylvania and said that someone was after him and was going to kill him. The family member advised Robert to notify the police but there is nothing to indicate that Robert ever did. Subsequent attempts to contact Robert have been unsuccessful. A missing persons report was filed with the San Jacinto County (TX) Sheriff's Department by one of Robert's brothers, who is a resident of San Jacinto. No report has been filed with Pennsylvania law enforcement.

    If you have any information about this case, please contact:

    San Jacinto County Sheriff's Department
