Moonbeam, I contemplated that possibility in the beginning here, but came to the conclusion that it's not true, and his disappearance is due to foul play. There just isn't anything in these last 10 years that has ever come to light to suggest anything of the sort. (Unless something was/became known only to his family or friend(s) or something but, again, there doesn't seem to even be a "whisper" of such a thing. No signs or intimations that his family/friends are withholding anything, and no other indications floating about the universe.) SK was definitely outside some of the parameters for his demographic milieu, considering that as a college graduate, overseas-mission-completed man for his age, he wasn't married and was having a difficult time with finding work with pay that he could live on. Also, it does seem strange to many of us that he left a larger job market for a smaller one, and had complained that he didn't have time for socializing in his evening-oriented job in the larger market -how is moving to somewhere with no family and fewer friends going to help that? However little sense those things make, though, what really is there to indicate a "secret life"? The driving was something clearly happening only in the very recent past and coincided with his job/economic issues. I tend to think that the driving was part of a "secret life" in that he likely was doing something odd, like delivering prescription pain killers, etc., but not in the sense that this was an ongoing, long term "lifestyle". If he did do this or something like it, it's likely only as a last resort, due to being financially strapped. SK, by all accounts, had no hidden life, but he did have quite a bit of pressure, of that I'm sure. I'm quite certain he felt pressured to settle down and marry and to improve his financial picture, and to prove to his father that he could make it on his own. Did this pressure convince him to take a decision related to employment that he otherwise wouldn't have? "Just until I can get back on my feet?" It's been said by family (or friend -can't remember now) that SK could be a bit "naive". Wouldn't this be just the kind of thing a person who is "a bit naive" could get into? "They're not illicit drugs, they're just "leftovers" from people who died, etc.". I can see it. After all these years, though, I don't see a secret, alternative lifestyle or such. Just my thoughts.
