    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Houchman was last seen at home with her family, who are also reported missing. Also missing is her father, Sol Salomon, mother, Elaine Salomon, and younger brother, Mitchel Salomon. The family was last seen on October 12, 1982, in Los Angeles, CA. The family is from Israel and lived on Lassen Street at the time.

    Prosecutors had theorized that a suspect killed Sol Saloman after arguing with him over $20,000 Salomon had invested in the suspects car business in Reseda. They accused the suspect of going to the Salomon home to kill Elaine Salomon and the children, who knew the two men had been together that night at an auto show.
    Authorities discovered small splatters of blood in one room of the Salomon family's residence. Some of the Salomons' passports, wallets and photos were discovered scattered along the Antelope Valley Freeway near Acton, California on October 17, 1982.

    The suspect was arrested for the family's murders in August 1988. The evidence against him was circumstantial.
    The case ended in two mistrials before the suspect was acquitted of any involvement in July 1992.

    He is also a suspect in the 1982 disappearance and presumed deaths of Peter and Joan Davis of Granada Hills and Ron Adeeb of Burbank. Authorities believe all the cases stemmed from business disputes. He has never been charged in these cases due to a lack of evidence.
