    Suzanne was last seen leaving her home in December of 1978. Her exact missing date is unknown so the date listed above is an approximation. Suzanne contacted her family in July of 1979, from Tampa, Florida, where she was believed to be staying with a male companion, and said she would be returning home. She failed to return home and the vehicle in which she was traveling was later found abandoned in Chicago, Illinois. Suzanne has not been seen or heard from since.

    The fact that there’s no pictures anywhere I can find of the man she was with down in Florida with and supposedly went missing with in the Illinois area, Stephen Craig Lund, is beyond suspicious to me. I apologize if I’m mistaken but from everything I can find, it seems his family wasn’t very forthcoming in giving up a picture of him and it seems like they almost had a reluctance to even report him missing or get his name out there for him to be found. RED FLAGS ALL OVER THE PLACE! Any family under normal circumstances would want to get his name and face out there to find their loved one, especially after over 40 years missing.

    I really think that Stephen tipped off his family that he was going into hiding/assuming a different identity because he had killed Suzanne and didn’t want to go to jail. This is why they don’t appear frantic the way Susanne’s family is. He may have used the U-Haul found abandoned in Illinois as a cover to store her body on the way up and dump her somewhere random along the way from Florida to Illinois. I think he’s out there living his life with a different name, knowing exactly what happened to Suzanne. If I’m wrong and anyone can find a picture of him, even in old newspapers, please post it here because I’ve given it the good old Google try and I’ve had no luck.

    Just my theory though. I live 30 mins away from Black Earth, where Suzanne lived, so this cold missing person’s case his close to home.

    I’m fairly certain these articles are talking about the same Stephen Craig Lund that Suzanne went missing with. It seems he was getting in some trouble with the law years prior to going down to Florida with Suzanne, and he may have had some substance abuse issues too.

    I'm thinking she could've easily gotten the tattoo while missing. I wonder where the photo is from that is on the Namus site on the UID page in question? Judging from that, it does look somewhat like her. Good find.
