NC - Oscar Sparrow, 28, Burlington, Oct 2007
October 29, 2007 8:37 PM
A Raleigh-area man who was last seen early Sunday morning at a Halloween party thrown at the Burlington home of his brother has been reported missing, authorities with the Alamance County Sheriff’s said.
Last seen leaving the home at 3701 Deerfield Drive, Oscar Sparrow, 28, was wearing his costume, which included a poncho and a small multicolored hat, a press release said.
Sparrow may have left the home after arguing with another person at the party, his brother told authorities.
“His brother (Oscar Sparrow) had exited the front gate on foot and has not been seen or heard from since,” the release said.
The area around the home, which is located near the shore of Lake Macintosh, was searched Monday by K-9 units, officers on foot, boat patrol of the lake shore and aerial reconnaissance, the release said, adding that authorities have also conducted numerous interviews with guests at the party.
Sparrow is of Hispanic descent and stands between five feet eight and five feet nine inches tall. He weighs between 170 to 180 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Alamance County Sheriff’s Department.

(IMO, this sounds a bit hinky; I hope LE is looking closely at the brother.)

Authorities on Thursday found a body believed to be that of a 28-year-old man reported missing early Sunday after a Halloween party at his brother's home.
Oscar Sparrow had been at 3701 Deerfield Drive, the home of his brother Fabian, when he left the party in Alamance County. Officers searched on foot and by boat - the home is near the shoreline of Lake Macintosh - but did not initially find him, according to the Alamance County Sheriff's Office.
On Thursday, authorities searched the area again and found a body in a cove about 30-40 feet from the shore. Authorities said Sparrow's brother, Fabian, identified the body as his brother.
An autopsy is planned. The case is being investigated as an unattended death.

Alcohol and cocaine were contributing factors in the drowning of a Raleigh man whose body was found floating in Lake Mackintosh on Nov. 1 2007, according to an autopsy report released Thursday.
The findings of the state Medical Examiner’s Office in Chapel Hill indicate that foul play was not the cause of Oscar Sparrow’s death. The report concurs with a preliminary examination conducted on the day the body was found.
