    Police Suspect Foul Play in Missing Davidson Man
    Wednesday, November 2, 2005



    Police in Davidson suspect foul play in the disappearance of a man reported missing last week.

    This is a picture of Wyatt Rivens. He is 26 years old.

    Davidson Police said he was supposed to pick up his daughter from a relative Saturday, but never showed up.

    Rivens was last seen at the Burger King on I-77 at exit 25. Investigators believe he left there and either got back on I-77 or took Statesville Road.

    Police said he was last seen driving a White 1996 Nissan Altima GXE with NC license tag RZH -9122.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Davidson Police Department at 704-892-5131 or Detective Steve Ingram at 704-940-9612.

    Hmmm, what do you think is the foul play circumstance? Drugs, ex-wife issues, owed someone money? I'd like to see some more info.

    This is from a local tv channel, NOvember 4. Not anything since then, though.

    Musician Wyatt Rivens disappeared last Friday and police are still trying to figure out what happened to him.

    In the past week, Davidson police have interviewed more than 75 people in hopes of obtaining clues about Rivens' mysterious disappearance. Many of the people who have been questioned by police are fellow musicians.

    WBTV News 3 spoke with one of Rivens' cousins who works for radio station 100.9 Praise FM in Charlotte.

    "Its a close-knit community in North Mecklenburg and normally things like this don't happen very often," said DJ Tonya Rivens.

    Wyatt Rivens is described as a local musician with much promise who was breaking out with a second CD, but producers like Mike Lee at Record Producers worry about the backlash that can occur.

    "We hate to hear when folks come up with problems and if someone is missing, your loved ones, that kind of thing is not good for music, its not good for the community," said Lee.

    Rivens' family continues assisting police in their investigation. WBTV News 3 has also learned that Rivens' father from Georgia is in town.

    If you have any information as to where Wyatt Rivens may be, please call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

    Little Local Info

    This happened in my neck of the woods. Suprisingly, there has been very little information on the news. They have not found his car either and the last time he was seen was very near Interstate 77. He could have just taken off, or he certainly could have run into some unsavory characters traveling through. I hope he is found safe.

    Search For Missing Person Leads To Dead Body

    DAYTON, Ohio -- Police in Dayton said detectives trying to find a missing person discovered a dead body on Thursday. They believe the man may have been a victim of foul play.

    Authorities said the man was shot to death in a home located at 56 West Norman Avenue.

    Police said officers have been working the missing person case for several days after relatives became concerned of the manís whereabouts. Officers said they found the manís car abandoned with a gun in it near North Main Street.

    Detectives said the investigation led to the home where the body of a man was found. Police have not identified the man as the missing person they were looking for, but are waiting for positive identification.

    Family members told police that they became concerned because it was out of the manís nature to not be in contact with relatives.

    Police said the man that was found inside the home had been shot multiple times.

    NC - Human remains found in Gaston woods, Dec 2005

    Human remains found in Gaston woods

    News 14 Carolina found out that the owner of a piece of property near the road was trying to sell it, so he had a land surveyor come out and survey the area this week. The surveyor found nothing unusual over the past few days, but around 8 a.m. Friday he made a gruesome discovery. He told neighbors he saw a badly decomposed body.

    I watched the news video and I am unclear about how long the remains were there. It could have been that they were there the whole time or it almost sounded like the remains were not there one day and then were there the next day, as if they had been stored somewhere and then dumped out.

    Does that mean pieces of two legs or more than two legs? If it is more than two legs it sounds like the Green River type killings where he used a particular area to dump the bodies.
