    Schaper was last seen when her husband dropped her off at a pasture near the family's dairy farm on Lenville Road southeast of Moscow, Idaho on June 29, 1979. When her husband came home, she wasn't there. Some clothing was found in a nearby meadow, but Schaper herself has never been located. She wasn't carrying any identification at the time of her disappearance.

    Schaper's husband was initially considered a suspect in her disappearance, but he passed a polygraph in 1993 and was cleared of involvement. He remarried after Schaper went missing and still lives in the local area. Larry Hagedorn lived close to the pasture Schaper disappeared from; his son, Bill, was later convicted in the shooting death of his live-in girlfriend. Bill is presently serving a life term in prison. There were some accounts that his girlfriend was murdered because she knew something about Schaper's disappearance. Larry was considered a person of interest in Schaper's case; he owned a backhoe and was excavating his property and burying trash at the time she disappeared. A search of the Hagedorn property turned up no evidence, however, and Larry passed a polygraph in connection with the disappearance. He died in 2005.

    Schaper's case remains unsolved. She was involved with her church and had a stable home life at the time of her disappearance, and isn't thought to have walked out of her life. Authorities believe she was taken against her will.

    Well in the 90s, they did a lot of digging on the property of William Hagedorn, but I don't know what came of it

    bump, apparently they found clothes that could have belonged to Gayla-not sure if they did DNA testing.

    Aldrich Ames passed many a polygraph during his tenure spying for the Russians, so no LE is going to tell me a suspect is ruled out because he passed one....

    Hagedorn is a likely suspect,but I cant help but be intrigued by the fact that she was a 45 minute drive from Lewiston Civic Theater Killer Lance Voss.
    Kristen David who I firmly beleive was one of Voss' victims was biking from Moscow to Lewiston in 1981 when she was abducted prior to being dismembered and dumped in the Snake River.
    Voss Occasionally drove a delivery truck between Moscow and Lewiston.
    The first known victim of the Voss Murders was a month after Schaper's disappearence, 12 year old Christina White from Asotin.
    She also has never been found.

    Kline! Where have you been?
    Anyway, I think it was Hagedorn-his son William is in jail for killing his girlfriend-because she knew about Larry and William raping and killing Gayla. Larry would catcall and harass Gayla whenever he would see her-this according to his own daughter. Also, cops investigated Larry's property and turned up underwear that Gayla most likely wore, but no body

    Also, when William was jailed, a nervous Larry would call cops to see if William had spilled the beans on "something else." When asked if his dad had raped Gayla, William said he didnt' want to get his dad in trouble.

    Oh,man...Ill fill you in later....many family crisis,including my Father's death.
    I hope to get back to speed soon.
    I think it likely was Hagedorn,too I always found the proximity to the Voss cases interesting though.Just goes to show that even in an area like this more then one sicko can be loose at once.

    Was Voss even in the area then-where was he living in 79? I would like to know more about the rape charge Hagedorn got in the 50s and if he was committed any other assaults.

    Voss was living in Asotin in 1979...you can see if you look at a map how close that is to Moscow as the Crow flies.Hardly an hours drive.
    12 year Old Christina White reportedly called her Mother from Voss' house and that was the last anyone ever saw of her in June 1979.

    I'm curious how meaningful it is that Larry (and the husband) passed a polygraph test?

    Psychopaths and pathological liars, among others, routinely pass polygraphs without a tremor, while innocent people worried about being falsely accused look guilty. It also varies according to the skill of the person administering the test and the quality of the equipment. That's why it's not allowed as evidence at a trial, or in many states not even as part of employment requirements.

    Yeah, that would really wipe you out. I'm glad you're starting to get back. I hope your son's better.

    Thanks for the good wishes guys.
    And yeah I dont think a Sociopathic personality can ever be ruled out on the basis of a Polygraph test.
    Gary Ridgeway the 'Green River Killer' passed one in the '80s.

    Thanks. That's very interesting that some of these psycopaths passed a lie-detector test. I knew that they weren't admissable in court, but thought that the police gave them to immediately clear some people close to the case such as family members so they could 'clear them and get it out of the way.' Why bother? (just thinking out loud don't want to make this discussion about lie-detector tests!)
