    This guy is from my hometown, and apparently he just disappeared one day. I did a little digging (because the missing persons reports tell you practically nothing) and found out some interesting things about him--nothing major, just a deposition from him on this wacko lawyer's web site:


    I also found a couple of court cases that this guy was involved with in 2004--one was disposed the day he went missing, another one was disposed a few months later. The first was for making illegal telephone calls (?) and the second one was an accident case that was filed after he went missing (?!).

    I find this case sort of strange and perplexing. Any thoughts? I wonder if he found the legal problems to be too much and left (although really they weren't THAT serious). There's practically no information about him. The police probably think the same thing I do.

    . . .

    The skeletal remains of Michael Dale Cloer were found off Beecliffe Drive last week. The details around his death remain a mystery, but it's no mystery who Cloer was. He was once known as Columbia radio personality Rick Shaw.

    . . .

    In May 2004, Cloer disappeared. The missing persons case went cold until his remains were found in a wooded area along Beecliffe Drive.

    "I was surprised. I was shocked. I was hopeful,'' Kathy said.

    The Richland County Coroner says the bones are Mike Cloer's, but doesn't know exactly how he died. Family members think Cloer may have killed himself, but they can't explain why.
