    Thank you all for your support and kind comments. At this late date, our family has lost contact with David and his family. All I can hope is that my brother is at peace.

    Ted Bundy - A Possible Suspect?

    Back in 1975, and earlier years, the Volkswagon bug accounted for about 75 percent of the foreign cars in the United States. There were a lot of them, but they were not considered to be the most desirable car to most car thieves - especially not a VW bug that was 13 years old.

    That said, there was one serial killer who was very active in the western states at that time who had a particular love for the VW bug - and that was Ted Bundy. He was known to have owned, driven, borrowed, and stolen several VW bugs around that time.

    Although most of his victims were girls and young women, I would still consider him to be a potential suspect in this case. He was in the area and very active, and he enjoyed killing and stealing Volkswagons.

    Thumbs up

    There a major piece of the puzzle missing in this case, if not several pieces between Brian and David leaving the party to David being picked up in the stolen car. I wonder what specific questions the original investigating officer had who stopped David in that stolen car, and what was his response to those questions?

    We would than need to know if and how much his statements changed over time after the effects of the drug had worn off. Any witness at the party? Or observation of both friends during that mysterious time frame by witnesses?

    I wonder if someone really knows what happened to Brian and might be covering up that information for fear of shame and embarrassment of not coming forward? Maybe if they were granted immunity, the person or person(s) involved might be able to set the record straight. If David does know something, he might be so devastated after all this time that he still does not want to get involved. However, Brian's family needs peace and some closure to find out what happened that night and early morning.

    I think that David may very well be holding those missing puzzle pieces in this case. This is so sad.

    Satch
    The above remain my thoughts on the case. There was another poster who thought with both Brian and David high on LSD that night, that they could have been fighting with each other and the car could have skidded off the road into the lake, tragically with Brian in it.

    It would seem that we would need more information about the boy's sequence of events after they left the party. It is possible that David may have caused an accident, but was so "out of it" from the LSD that he really has no recollection of what happened to Brian, OR he's not telling the truth about what happened to Brian and knows the truth.

    Was the lake ever searched for evidence?

Brian could have been knocked out and David got out, whereupon he went on his stolen car ride. Not sure how this could happen without some "flashbacks" on David's part though.
    I don't think that's very plausible, Detroit Lake is a good 50 miles from Salem, LSD doesn't make you walk that fast. I personally think that if he is in Detroit Lake, it's because he may have been driving alone to sober up.

    Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if he did wreck if he was on that road on LSD. I had a really nasty accident over there and I was stone cold sober.

    I hope they find him though, 37-years is an awful long time to be gone.

    "Writing from prison, Gaskins called 1975 “my busiest year and my killingest year.” His pace of random murders on the Carolina coast remained “about the same,” although he started January with a threesome, including a man and two women. Gaskins described them as “hippie types” from Oregon, whose van had broken down near Georgetown. He offered a lift to the nearest garage, then detoured to a nearby swamp and handcuffed his captives at gunpoint. Before he drowned the trio, Gaskins said, “It was hard to say which one suffered most. I tried to make it equal.”

    It would be a stretch to think Joe Paige & a couple of girls wound up in SC, but who knows.
    I don't know if the bodies of the trio Gaskins claimed to have killed were ever recovered.
    Hello Justthinkin, Glad to read your post, its been a while since we last talked.
    I don't think it would be a stretch to think they drove down to see the car races..
    I think this young man looks a lot like the John Doe Shot in S.C in 1976 with his Female friend and has never been identified.
    Take a second look at this couple photo's and tell me if the 2 males don't look simular?
    Wasn't there a ring with a 'J' initial found on the young man in S.C.?

    My question is: What happened to the friend/girl Joe left the party with??

    Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds...What I write here, are my theories, speculation, opinions & deductive reasoning...not to be taken as 'fact'..

    What about this link on namus https://identifyus.org/en/cases/6480. It is approximately 137 miles away from last know county and there isn't a lot of information. I didn't see Brian Page's name on the exclusion list and there isn't anything saying how long the known remains where there, also wasn't found until 2006. New at looking on the site, just offering an opinion.

    just learning of this case today. I am not familiar of the effects that LSD has on a person. Can David not remember why he was no longer with Brian? Why he needed to steal a car and why he no longer had his own car? So frustrating. I feel like he has to be involved in some way, even if it was drug-induced.

    Does this UID have a thread in the WS Unidentified forum? If not, you can start one or ask a Mod to help.

    I looked at the Namus info, and there are 2 articles of clothing (poncho and shoe). Brian's (or whomever's) family could possibly identify them (and test DNA).

    Good find!

    I'm not a Mod, but I suggest you copy your post from above into a reply on that thread, along with a link to the first page of this (Brian's) thread.

    There are many WSers that specialize in the UID's and I'm sure it will get their attention. They can also advise you on "calling it in" (especially if you've never done that before).

    Good luck!
