    Michael's Charley project profile has been updated.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/m/madden_michael.html

    There have been no arrests in his case and it remains unsolved. Authorities think he met with foul play at the campground, possibly at the hands of an unknown serial killer or even Cary Stayner. No proof of anyone's involvement in this case.

    His dog Matilda disappeared with Michael and came back to the campsite 4 days later, dehydrated and couldn't lead searchers to Michael. To me it sounds like she stayed with his body after he had been hurt/killed, and then returned...so sad.

    This case really creeped me out. Thank god Matilda wasn't hurt. But I think authorities should look closer at Joseph Tine. He obviously met Mike before he disappeared and a gun just seems too suspicious

    I googled for Joseph Tine in CA and found one in his 60s living in Tracy, CA. I guess it could be him.

    This has the obvious signs of foul play.
