Susan Basile (12) - Port Orange FL, 1975
Missing Since: June 10, 1975 from Port Orange, Florida
Classification: Endangered Missing
Age: 12 years old
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female.
Details of Disappearance
Basile was last seen in Port Orange, Florida on June 10, 1975. She got off her school bus and was walking along a deserted road afterwards. She has never been heard from again.
The serial killer Gerald Stano confessed to Basile's murder in 1982. A photograph of Stano is posted below this case summary. He confessed to the murders of 41 women in several states and, in many cases, lead police to where his victims' bodies were. Stano stated he picked up Basile on the day of her disappearance and offered her a ride to the Starlite Skate Center, which they both patronized. After she got into his vehicle, he strangled her. Stano lead authorities to the place where he says he left her body, but the site had been built over and no remains were located.
Stano pleaded guilty to several murders, but he was not charged in many of the cases he is alleged to have been involved in, including Basile's. He also confessed to causing the death of Gail Joiner, who was never located, but it is unclear whether he was actually involved in that case. Basile is Stano's youngest presumed victim. He was executed in Florida in 1998.
Foul play is suspected in Basile's case due to the circumstances involved.
