    Could this be him? or is this just a fake ad...not too sure whether to make anything of this...but when researching his name, i kept coming up with a girl's name who played a sport in piscataway....and i think the same girl went to Kean University as well...let me know what you all think. I live in Bridgewater and have never heard of this case...

    When I click on the link it takes me to a page on reunion.com to buy a subscription so I can't access the info at the link provided.

    It says on Doe he is also known as Joe Jeffco...

    This one always strikes me as odd, as if the police just "lost" him. Do you think maybe he had some sort of accident or was assaulted by someone (another inmate or possibly even by the use of restraints or something) & died while in custody & they covered it up?

    I have read about this case and it does sound strange regarding the police. I did read somewhere that he was seen after the arrest.I will have to try to find that bit of info.

    I wish there was more information about him available. He was a pretty big guy. And he simply vanished?

    He obviously had served in the Marine Corps. I wonder if he was still on active duty or in the USMC Reserves when he went missing.

    And what is the story with his nickname/alias of "Joe Jeffco"?

    Here is one link to the story reflecting a possible sighting the day after his father went to see him in jail. This is strange in that it says his brother saw him. Also Charley project lists a possible sighting one week later.

    Mmh. Interesting. In this link the story of how he went missing sounds completely different. Nothing about him being arrested and vanishing during a transfer.

    How can the story change so much?
