    Wow - that is wild! I was thinking, too, that she sounded like she might be a spy. I wonder if the book is available in English?

    Interesting...



    The fake passports and wigs are interesting. Kind of reminds me of something from a James Bond movie.

    I think the black book with the number and letters codes is also interesting.

    Thats what I was thinking! I want the book!
    Not to make light of the tragedy and no disrespect, but it sounds like something you would see on 'alias', so yeah the spy thing sounds right.

    I'd like to read it too

    Hopefully they'll release the book in English- but then I have a feeling that 9x/10 that possibility is somewhere between "could happen" and "nil"

    Lyle Stevik

    Outofthedark,

    Your signiture link for information on Lyle Stevik. Is there another thread for that one? I have a possible solution to that one.

    I was looking at a case for a disturbed (social phobia) person who was suicidal from Jerome Idaho.

    His case can be found http://www.doenetwork.us/cases/1819dmid.html (Patrick Beavers).

    Some similarities stike me such as hair/eye color and age. While the height is bit off. Weight would be same if Patrick had lost 30-40 pounds as it is indicated that Lyle Stevik had. Patrick had left a "goodbye" note indicative of suicide and Lyle left a "for the room" note. Lyle was obviously a deep reader considering his name and Patrick enjoyed reading.

    One thing that really struck me (besides the resemblance if you consider a weight loss) is that Lyle left an address to a motel of 1019 S. Progress Avenue, Meridian, Idaho. This would indicate a familiarity with Idaho (to come up with an existing address -- and then it happens to be a motel? He was found in a motel having committed suicide. What is more, Meridian is on the route to Amanda Park Washington if you were to take 84W from Jerome, it would go right through there.

    Patrick also enjoyed hiking and Lyle was found in hiking boots. Washington is excellent hiking. There are more similarities you would see if you were familiar with the book from which he takes his name (You Must Remember This by Joyce Carol Oates).

    Differences would be facial hair (could have shaved). Patrick also had light sensitivity and wore sunglasses often .. I see no mention of any being found at the scene where Lyle committed suicide.

    If you look at the picture of Patrick on the right, you will notice he is wearing a tshirt and what appears to be a blue plaid shirt over it. This is what Lyle was wearing.

    Probably a long shot but, are you familiar with the case and do you know if this possibility has been considered?
    Why do I see so many angels everywhere, when I have so little faith in people? How can so much good exist among so much bad? Why don't my 2 angels desert me? There are others who deserve them more.

    There is an article about 3 Doe cases that Det. Lane Youmans has been investigating and the "Lyle Stevik" case is one of them- "Lyle" did actually leave another note, but it was found with a crumpled up newspaper in a trash can and it had the word "suicide" written on it.

    Concerning Lyle Stevik's race, I did some research on his eye color (which was hazel) and shortened it to two (because his race was listed White/Native and or possibly Hispanic) possible races- White and Biracial. If he is White, he could possibly be of European descent because hazel eyes are commonly found in middle European countries.

    In Lyle Stevik's autopsy photos, you'll notice what appears to be really small facial hairs on his chin- I didn't notice them out of all the times I saw his autopsy photos...

    The drawing made of her was by witnesses who recognized her as a pretty woman who had checked out of the Hordaheimen hotel. She had signed the guestbook with a false name.

    The boxes at the railway station were checked, and the police found clothing, a wig, several eyeglasses (no prescription), similar silver spoons, 500 german marks and 130 norwegian crowns, also a black notebook with number and letter codes. (possibly her travel route and contacts in Norway). All labels had been removed from the clothing, and all identifying things removed from the luggage.

    What is known about her travels:

    March 25 - April 1- stays at hotel Scandia in Bergen, still as "C. Tielt"

    November 29 - she is located dead in Isdalen. Police claim she comitted suicide; rumors say she was a spy and the answers to her identification will be found in Moscow; other rumors theorize she was killed by someone she was close to.

    Yes, this case is very interesting! I think there was a thread on her awhile back somewhere on here. We were hoping that the book written about her might have a translated edition so we could learn more. I've since forgotten about it but will have to remember to check it out after all the holiday craziness. Somebody remind me, okay?!?

    Hi, no , unfortunately not. There is no english version, but of course the book really may have an english-spoken life because of its international approach.
    I should need som help then to launce that one. How do you know of the book?
