    PERANTEAU, Clifford R. - Doe Net 699DMCA


    Clifford Raymond Peranteau
    Missing since January 20, 1985 from San Francisco, San Francisco County, California.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics

    Date Of Birth: February 23, 1961
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 23 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 6'1" (185 cm.); 185 lbs. (84 kg.)
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Blond hair; blue eyes.
    Dentals: Not available

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Clifford was last seen on January 20, 1985 in San Francisco, CA. He is a presumed victim of serial killers Charles Ng and Leonard Lake . One day, co-worker Cliff Peranteau became mad at Ng. On January 18, 1985, Peranteau went missing after telling his girlfriend "Charlie" had invited him to Lake Tahoe. Some days later, Peranteau sent a letter to his boss asking him to send his pay check to a postal box.
    Many of Peranteau's belongings were found in the cabin and in Ng's apartment. Investigators apprehended Lake after he and Ng were caught shoplifting from a San Francisco hardware store in 1985. Ng fled from officers, but Lake was taken into custody. Lake swallowed a cyanide capsule he taped to the collar of his shirt while in custody. He reportedly told authorities that Ng was his partner prior to his death several days later. Investigators searched Lake's property and uncovered the remains of several victims.

    Ng was apprehended in Canada later in 1985. He was convicted of eleven murders in California in 1999 after 14 years of legal wrangling and stalling. He claimed Lake was the actual murderer and has never accepted responsibility for the murders.

    No NAMUS found, although I checked a variety of possible spellings for the last name, since it would be easy to misspell.

    Additional detail http://tomhavegroup.com/sound-vision-2/ :
    Clifford Peranteau, 23, disappeared from a Haight Street dive called the Rocking Robin shortly after winning a $400 Super Bowl bet. The bartender reported that Clifford and his coworker, Charles Ng, left the bar to celebrate Cliffordís winning bet, and the 49erís victory over the Dolphins, 38 to 16. My italics.

    This MP had 11 siblings. http://tomhavegroup.com/sound-vision-2/ Therefore, it seems likely that DNA could be had.

    Very high likelihood that this MP was a victim of Ng/Lake. He worked and argued with Ng, and Lake was in possession of his motobike: https://books.google.com/books?id=qz...eau%22&f=false

    This MP has VERY carrot red hair, even though it gets called blond in official descriptions. This just calls my attention to the fact that one person's "blond" is another person's "red".

    I'm going to end this one here, since it has long been assumed by LE that this MP was an Ng/Lake victim. I can't see going further down the Ng rabbit-hole.

    I'm thinking the easiest way to resolve a potential match between this MP and our UID is to get DNA from a Peranteau sibling.

    Feel free to add!
