    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Blee was last seen at a dance at the Pavilion in Craig, Colorado during the evening of November 21, 1979. After the dance, she went to a party at Shadow Mountain mobile home park with Marty Doolin. When she failed to return home by the following morning, her parents reported Blee as missing. Doolin later told authorities that Blee informed him she had a ride home with an unidentified person at 1:30 AM - 2:00 AM. Attendees reported alcohol and drug use at the party. Doolin stated that he never saw Blee again.

    Doolin was arrested and given a suspended sentence for attempted extortion one week after Blee vanished. He admitted that he made a phone call to her parents, in which he demanded $5000 in ransom for their daughter's return. He maintains that he is innocent of any involvement in Blee's case.

    It sounds like Doolin knows alot more than he's saying. Why would he call and demand ransom money not knowing if she had walked in the front door as he was making the call? He must have known she wouldn't ever be walking in again ever! Do you suppose nobody has talked since...wonder where Doolin is now??

    It would seem that he waited about a week before placing the call to her parents. But your point is well taken. How callous is this idiot to make such a demand? He probably did have something to do with her disappearance.

    I doubt Doolin had anything to do with Marie's disappearance -- I mean, he could have, but his demanding ransom money is not a good indication. A lot of sick, twisted opportunists take advantage of the families of missing children like that. In the Amy Billig case (http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/billig_amy.html) two sixteen-year-old boys claimed to be holding her for ransom, and it turned out they had nothing to do with it. When they were caught, they passed the whole thing off as "a joke." Well, I'm not laughing, and Amy's parents weren't either.

    There are a lot of examples of this sort of scam. See the Sheila and Katherine Lyon case for such examples. It is likely that the police receive hoax ransom calls on many more cases, but do not reveal it to the press.

    Besides all the leads, false leads, calls of sympathy and numerous questions called in to investigators and families, these fake ransom calls take up valuable time and resources in cases which might be very time-sensitive.

    My grandparents and father lived in Craig from 1975 to 2003. My grandparents have since passed, but I will have to ask my father if he remembers hearing anything about this case. Craig is such a small community, I don't see how they couldn't have at the time.

    You might check with local newspapers to see if there were any articles printed last November on the 30th anniversary of Marie Ann's disappearance.
