That's terrible. I'm glad the car was finally found. I wonder how many people in that area have been reported missing that it might be?

Wow, Tony Luzio did!!
Tony was last seen leaving the party at 4:00AM, presumably to his apartment. That was the last time anyone ever saw Tony Luzio again. His 2004 Honda Civic is also missing and has never been recovered. He disappeared just 15 miles from where Brian Shaffer disappeared.

In November of 2005 29-year-old Mohamed Rihani also disappeared in the same close proximity after leaving his residence in the vicinity of Riverview Drive and Olentangy River Road in Columbus, Ohio. He too was driving a Honda Civic, black in color. Both he and his vehicle have vanished.
the car in the picture looks black.OCCAM'S RAZOR : "All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best."

It really makes you wonder how many of our missing have ended up like this.

its probably one of these guys. i'm sad for them, and sad for their families. i can imagine it must be harder to wonder what happened to them than to finally find out. either way it's so terribly tragic.
The Delaware County Sheriff's Office said Luzio was driving a silver four-door 2004 Honda Civic with license plate number DCA 5615.

An accidental drowning death is still tragic for the family, but I would prefer it over knowing my relative had been murdered. Bless this family as they hopefully find a sense of closure and peace in the days ahead."WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.

TiaDaxxy1980 just posted this on Brian Shaffer's thread. The car is registered to Mohamed Rihani who disappeared in 2005.

i noticed the sunroof window was broken. would that be from water pressure or did he try to escape by breaking it? i know that power windows won't open when in water right? i hope it was an accident.OCCAM'S RAZOR : "All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best."

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I hope they can conclude if it was accidental or anything else.
Also I remember an episode on Mythbusters where they tested theories on cars going into water. The windows will roll down if they are electric for up to 30 minutes after being submerged. However I guess it could depend on he car. Also it is very hard to break glass in a car once submerged. It usually requres a glass hammer. Still I think panicking when the car first hits the water usually means the person may not make it out alive. I know personally I would probably freak out but I hope I have the frame of mind to calm down, take calm breathes and wait for the car to fill with water and open the doors.
i think i watch too much Discovery Channel LOL!
