By all accounts, Mark Dribin was a loving son, a hard worker, a friendly neighbor.
Over the Fourth of July weekend 1999, he vanished -- never heard from again.

Bumping for Mark.

The Doe Network is the only one to mention a possible motive. "Police suspect the killing resulted from a relationship gone bad." Does this mean they suspect a past girlfriend/ partner? I wish there were more details about that aspect if the case.

RIP Mark

Reportedly, Mark was gay. He was also Jewish, another reason to possibly target him.

From the link I just posted:

"The 42-year-old north Portland man worked air freight for United Airlines at Portland International Airport. Police said Dribin called July 2 and told his supervisor he needed the night off for a 'personal emergency.'

'A friend actually reported him missing on the 6th, which would have been Tuesday,' Stahlman said. 'And then Port of Portland police actually went to his house that day to check because he hadn't shown up for work. And the evidence starts becoming apparent. There was a substantial amount of evidence in the house.'"

That's his father and older brother whom they've shown in the video. Both how they've both aged! Hope it wasn't from the stress. I haven't seen them in years, but I may see them soon at a family gathering.

The evidence, now out in the open was blood spatter on the walls. Mark is presumed dead.

Wondering why no DNA??? Couldn't they have obtained that from the blood spatters on the wall? Also, both his parents and his brother are alive, can't they match it from them???

Here's a review of the bar where he was last seen:

http://www.yelp.com/biz/eagle-bar-portland

The bar closed at that location and moved elsewhere. Here is the website for the new bar:

Was he last seen at his residence? Or at this bar? One report says neighbors last saw him at his residence- another indicates last seen at the bar? TIA.

Is there a chance that you or anyone has a solid clothing description of any kind and even if there are no particulars, do you know what sizes he wore, including shoe size?

Peace.

IdentifyUs has several John Doe's with dental records. I see that Mark has some that are entered, but they are not appearing on his NamUS record...I wonder if they will run against the UID's then??

As for the primary DNA and the blood spatter. I wonder if the spatter was too contaminated by the clean up to get a good sample from it??

There is no good way to ask this LinusK, and I apologize if it hurts you at all-How was the blood spatter determined to be his?

I don't have the answer to that. Some of these facts my mother had told me years ago- Mark's father is her nephew, but my mother is gone now...

The Charley Project says at the bar. The Doe Network says at his residence. I'm guessing he was seen at the bar earlier, and then neighbors saw him at home after that?

I'm wondering: if someone at the bar was responsible, is it not possible that person still hangs out there? And I'm wondering if after the disappearance someone who normally hung out at the bar quit doing so?

Peace.
I've e-mailed my father and he forwarded it to Mark's father, so hopefully he'll join us soon and get some direct answers...

Yes, I was wondering also if someone from the bar might have gone home with him or followed him home. It appears the bar is defunct now, but I wonder if LE chased down staff at the time, to see if anyone recalled Mark leaving with someone.

Does anyone know what the area surrounding the bar and residence is like? Are transients common? Residences or industrial?

I would really really like to look at the police file. I am certain some good work was done and that there is someone in mind.

It looks from the media that LE believes the key will be what is with Mark's body.

Chin up LinusK

The original bar closed but reopened elsewhere, and the website (link at my previous post) has pictures of some of the patrons. It made me shudder to think that the person responsible might be smiling it up for the camera!
