    Lombard and Armstrong went missing on December 17th, 1993. They were both employed by the same Towing Company but not know to hang out together or otherwise socialize outside of work. Neither went to work that day and both were last seen at their homes. Their employer, Randal Wright, was considered a "person of interest" but never charged.

    The case had "gone cold" with little attention until February 2009 when Randal Wright’s estranged wife, "disappeared" in Mexico from a property she owned with Randal. He was again named "person of interest". Randal spent 8 months in jail in 2008 on a Spousal Abuse charge. The Mexican property was a bone of contention in their divorce.

    Since then, he has gotten into trouble over some theft-embezzlement activity involving a couple of vehicles he owned and illegal firearms. From what I can tell, he has an appeal pending on a 6 month sentence for fraud and perjury.

    Paul and Steve worked together at RTS Towing, though they were not close friends and their families believe it is unlikely they would have gone anywhere together. Both disappeared on December 17, 1993. Their boss at the time, Randal Wright, was questioned after their disappearance but never officially named a suspect. In 2009 Wright's wife Karen disappeared just months after filing for divorce from him. (Karen's WS thread here.)

    Paul had a broken leg at the time of his disappearance and was using crutches. Steve's 1965 Ford F250 truck was recovered in the parking lot of a nearby business, unlocked, with the keys inside and the windows rolled down.
