Ace: How Long
This song was my "jam" while writing this entry. 
Oldie but a goodie as they say.

Note: I actually started this entry in May while in Anaheim. It's been awhile since I have been motivated to write. As readers of this blog will know I do take frequent extended breaks. This recent break was of a personal nature. I'll just say, Sometimes things just don't work out. However, I will never give up on this blog or for justice for the victims of the cases I profile. 


Pretty cool announcement to make. I am writing this in Anaheim, CA. Why am I in Anaheim do you ask? Ever hear of a little show on the ID Channel called On The Case w/Paula Zahn? Well at the request of Dorothy's son Shawn they flew me down here free of charge and I actually not only visited the area where the partial remains of Dorothy's body were found. But I also ended up doing an interview with her show regarding the case. I am told it will air in around 3 months. In this entry I will be posting yet more never before seen photographs. Which will likely be taken from this entry (Like the last ones were) and used in a host of other blogs. Without being credited here. This case more than any other has taught me how selfish this community really is in that regard. And in others. But as Jim Carrey's character said in Bruce Almighty "That's the way the cookie crumbles!" I would really like to thank the production team for the show for being remarkably professional and courteous. Especially Kristin who should really have her own show to be honest. And not to mention one remarkably beautiful woman. I also wanna thank Shawn Scott for being a very good friend and sharing all these pictures that you will see for the first time. As well as his wife and daughter who I met while I stayed for the short period of time I did. I was also able to find out certain details as to what Dorothy was wearing the night she was abducted. And what color eyes she had. Also, When and if my interview makes the cut. I don't think I did a real good job. If it does make the cut this will be my first time on television and if they end up including any of my interview questions I ended up being completely flustered. I answered one completely incorrectly. They asked me something along the lines of "Why do you think the killer actually made the calls to newspaper as well as to Dorothy Parents?" I said something along the lines of "They wanted to relive the crime". And I don't believe that is true. I honestly believe the calls were an attempt to throw off the investigation. Make it seem as tho the crime was one of passion. When they were more likely in regards to illegal activity. The reason for me being flustered was that I had this remarkably beautiful woman asking me these questions. I had grown quite fond of her in the short time we worked together and it completely threw me. So yeah, I'm a failure haha. Needless to say I won't be upset if it doesn't air at all. Hopefully I make it in there somewhere tho. 

Update: Turns out I will make it in their episode after all. The program will air on October 17th on ID & October 10th on Discovery+.

Dorothy Jane Scott

Date of Birth: 4/23/48 to Jacob and Vera Scott
Height & Weight: 5'8 & 145 lbs.
Hair & Eyes: Brown & Blue
Wearing: Blue Levis, Brown 1 Piece Bathing Suit w/ Straps, Multi Colored Satin Shirt, and Rust Colored Shoes.
Case Number: MC80-0565
LIfestyle: Even tho it has no bearing on the case at this time. I did learn that Dorothy was bisexual. (Here come all the internet detectives that will run away with this like they did the Butler information. Jilted lover? Was the suspect a she? Oh I'll help you out. In one magazine I read that covered this case it hinted the voice was a soft voice)

Recent Developments

I was able to recently track down and speak to Pam Head who was extremely courteous and nice. I interviewed her several months ago. She was able to answer a few nagging questions I had in the back of my mind as well as told me a few new details. One being that Dorothy's son Shawn was with her at the meeting. This makes more sense as to why Dorothy dropped by her parents house on the way to the hospital. She didn't want to take Shawn with them. Also, Pam was NOT certain the car she saw that night was Dorothy's. It might have been. It might not have been. Since she was one of the two witnesses at the location that night. I'll have to reconsider whether or not THAT aspect of the case has become overblown or not. She did say that the car she witnessed did not have the headlights on. So this could be an occurrence where some driver simply forgot to turn on their headlights on before leaving. Or it might have been the perpetrator. However, If you read into the reports at the time. Pam is on record stating there was a car IN FRONT of Dorothy's car. One other detail was that there was an empty pack of cigarettes left where Dorothy parked her car. Whether or not it was related or not is anyone's guess. Hopefully Law Enforcement did at least pick them up and add them as evidence. I was not able to speak to the detective on the case as he was busy filming to be on the episode as well. I also was able to verify that Pam did participate in some filming as well. The other witness, Conrad Bostran declined to participate in the episode. There does seem to be a discrepancy regarding Pam's recalling of events. They seem to differ regarding published accounts at the time. And what she told me during the call. I do NOT believe this to be anything to do with her being dishonest. This could easily be attributed to either misremembering the events or bad reporting by the news outlets. She did admit to being hypnotized after the incident. Nothing of a substantial value was recovered. Even if there were, I don't place a lot of value in hypnosis honestly. If I were to bet on which account to best believe. It would put more credence in the older reports as studies have shown a person's recall to be less than accurate as they age.

The Location

Like I said earlier I was able to visit the the general vicinity where Dorothy's remains were found in 1984. I also took some pics. There has been some work done around the area. So it's virtually impossible to locate the exact location. I have tried locating the person who found the remains to see if maybe he would be able to give me a better general estimate on the approximate location. He worked for Pacific Bell at the time. So far I have not been able to. 

This is a good estimation as to where her remains were found. Or so I'm told.
I do not believe this to be the original location where her remains were discarded however.
This location is just off Santa Ana Canyon Rd.

As I said I do not believe this location to be the actual location where her remains were discarded. Since it was only a partial set of remains it is likely that due to natural occurrences such as floods and heavy rains that the remains actually traveled to that area. I could be wrong as I am not a geologist. However it would also account for the remains of the dog that were found with the remains. I've heard all kinds of crazy theories as to why the dog remains were found with Dorothy's. Some say it was satanic cult activity. And others say it was to mask the scent of a body. And others say the dog remains were placed there to confuse any person(s) who came across Dorothy's remains and make them think it was actually a dog buried there. Never mind the human skull everyone. It's clearly a dog. Or even more outlandish, I've heard some say that the murderer(s) brought a dead dog with them in case someone came by while they are digging. 

"Oh I'm just burying a dog here. Never mind me I'm just burying a dog. Don't ask me about the body in the back of my car tho......"


On my trip back from Anaheim all I did was go over the known facts of the case over and over again in my head. And I have been forced to conclude that the owner of the store at the time John Kycola knows more about what happened to Dorothy that fateful night than is generally known. John apparently owned the land that Dorothy's remains were found on. That was news to me. Like I said before, I don't believe the location where her remains were found were the location she was buried. The remains found were only a partial set. That either tells me that the remains were scattered by animals or natural occurrences in the geology of the area moved them there. Or both. If John Kycola was in fact involved in the burial of Dorothy's remains, Why would he bury them on his own land only for them to be found later by a contractor putting down lines? He simply may have not realized that the remains were moved by natural activity. Or he may have thought the remains (If still there) would have been so scattered they wouldn't be found together. And that it would just be another jigsaw puzzle for investigators to put together. One of many during those days. He was one of the few (in addition to the members of the meeting Dorothy attended) that knew where Dorothy was going to be. Also, Dorothy was a book keeper for both of his stores. And if you remember correctly, Years after Dorothy's death John was indicted on federal charges stemming from tax evasion. This is from an LA Times article dated June 12th 1996... 

"The owner of an Anaheim business was indicted Tuesday on tax evasion charges. John H. Kocyla, 48, owner of Custom John’s General Store, was accused of filing returns for two years that falsely showed he had no taxable income.

The federal grand jury indictment in Los Angeles charges Kocyla had “material” taxable income in 1989 and 1990 that he failed to report. “The amount is substantial, but we want to reserve that figure until trial,” Assistant U.S. Atty. Jean A. Kawahara said.

Arraignment for Kocyla, now living in Klamath Falls, Ore., has not been set yet, she said. He could not be reached for comment.

Kocyla owned a second business, Swingers Gift Shop in Anaheim, which has been closed and consolidated into Custom John’s, according to Kawahara and a store employee."

This would make me at least consider that he may have been involved in something like this during the time that Dorothy was his book keeper. Or possibly something bigger. The calls to Dorothy's parents house as well as the calls to Dorothy herself I believe were to make it seem as though this was a crime of passion. The caller continually tried to make it seem like Dorothy's murder was a crime of passion. It's also interesting to know that in the weeks prior to her abduction and murder that she was visited by her ex husband who lived in Missouri. And as readers know he was eventually ruled out. Interesting timing don't you think? What a better scapegoat than the ex. Are these theories? Perhaps, But they fit the facts of the case pretty well so far. I will not rule out a crime of passion. I just find it odd that the caller wanted everyone else to believe it was a crime of passion so bad that the calls continued for years afterwards. Up until Jacob answered the phone. And that was the last time the caller phoned. Jacob was the previous owner of one of the shops. Was someone scared? Well someone should be. There are other reasons as to why I believe that John Kycola knows more. But I am not at liberty to say them at this time. Let's just say it's an extremely interesting lead. I can assure you there will be some additional details coming up in the future. Until then.

Ok, I do wanna say that if I ever reach out to you and say "Let's collaborate on a case." I am doing it because I think that you are a selfless person. That you care more about a case than promoting ones self. I don't mind if you promote yourself. But if you pose as an expert or someone who is use to investigating cases to make yourself feel better or more important. If you think you are important because you have talked to the detective on the case. (The same detective that you didn't even try and introduce me to.) You will lose me almost immediately. Don't try and act like you are someone special or important. Don't act like you know more than I do. I don't mean that in an egotistical way either. Extend the same courtesy to me as I did to you. Just when I go into a situation trying NOT to be an asshole. I am reminded of why I am.

Meaghan from The Charley Project asked me to cover this case and introduced me to Kaya's sister Kristen. This case is mind blowing. I refuse to call Kaya by her "adopted name". So I refer to her as Kaya Kazzee.

Kaya Whitney Kazzee

The system in place to protect this precious angel failed her terribly.

Kaya Whitney Kazzee (Birth Name)
Kaya Marie Centeno (Adopted)
Date Of Birth:
5/23/2002 in Idaho
Hair & Eyes:
Both Brown
Height & Weight:
3'6 50 lbs (In 2002)
Last Seen: Rohnert Park, CA
Sometime between 2010 & 2012

Charley Project

Details of Case

Kaya Kazzee was born on May 23rd, 2002 in Idaho. In 2007 Kristen and Kaya, along with another sister and a brother were taken into CPS Custody. I don't have the specifics as to why this occurred. Only that it did. Kristen was 10 at the time, Kaya was 5, the other sister was 4, and their brother was 3. They were fostered by the same couple that would go on to adopt them. In 2008, Kaya along with their other sister and brother were adopted by a Jose and Gina Centeno who lived in Rohnert Park, California. I don't have much on the other kids. I do have their names but I want to keep them out of this entry for reasons of privacy. And it's the right thing to do. This couple had taken kids in before the adoption. Kristen was not included in the adoption. The couple only took in that were ages 10 and under. (Hmmmm Wonder why?) Kristen was promised that she could continue to see her siblings, Which "Surprise" turned out to be a lie. Contact between Kristen and her siblings was completely cut off. Kaya was enrolled at John Reed Elementary (2nd Grade, 2010 to 2011) for a brief period before being taken out and "homeschooled". One could deduce why this would occur. One might presume they wanted to prevent a possible leak of information. What am I referring to? Well, Kaya seemed to "disappear" soon after being removed from school. After that occurred the Centeno couple seemed to keep a tight lid on the household. The kids never came out of the house at all. During this period they endured physical and psychological abuse for more than 10 years. And to top it off, The couple left the kids with an extended family in Mexico. While they stayed in California. The children were there for the past year and a half. Eventually and thankfully Mexican authorities rescued the kids from the couple. The kids were finally able to tell the authorities that their sister had been missing for more than 10 years. They were all brought back to the United States and the couple was arrested and are now facing charges for aggravated kidnapping with more likely on the way. Law Enforcement obtained Search Warrants and was able to corroborate the kids' stories of the abuse they had endured during the time in question. The kids have been placed in a safe home in Sonoma County, California. The couple is now in jail with a bond set at a hefty $18 Million. Not only did the government fail this girl by not checking in after she was adopted. But they failed her before that as well. The biological father's brother initially wanted to adopt the kids and CPS said no. The biological father's sister ALSO wanted to. And she was also denied. Instead, they gave them to these two monsters.


Things like this make me sometimes not only ashamed to be an American. But ashamed to be a human. Everyday anyone can turn on a television and see someone excusing an idiots actions while making them, As well as themselves out to be a victim. People are rioting and looting all over the country for people's dumb actions. And let me make one thing clear. Protesting and Rioting are two different things. Anyone using 2 percent of their brains understands that. While all this is going on, This little girl who didn't do a damn thing to anyone got lost in all this. No one is rioting for her. No one is protesting for her. No one cares about her rights. Or the rights of her siblings. How about all of you ignorant people all over facebook and social media, All hyped up on the news cycle take a step back. Use that brain of yours. And see that there are REAL victims in the world EVERY DAY. None of you cared about any of this social justice until some idiot on the news started preaching their opinions to you. Where are you for Kaya? Where are you for Alicia Navarro? Where are you for Jennifer Lynn Fay? Where are the protests? Where is the outrage? Oh, that's right.... 5-year-olds don't watch the news. Nor do 6, 7 8, or 9-year-olds. Yeah, that's right. I guess the media can't get them all angry and have them riot anywhere. So they don't matter to them. I see how it is. Oh yeah, and you got idiots like this.....

This lady said this regarding the couple. Let's forget Law Enforcement found evidence to corroborate the stories the kids said. Let's forget that they kidnapped the kids and took them out of the country. Let's forget they were arrested on charges are pending. Let's forget they literally "lost" kid for almost a decade and didn't report it.

Anyways, How the hell is it that no one from the government, Not one single person ever checked in on this kid? Or her siblings? This is unconscionable.

Abducted, Murdered & Missing: 

Gayla Christine Schaper

I chose this case because it reminded me of Dorothy Jane Scott's case. And there isn't much about the case online. Which surprised me. I thought of contacting Gayla's former husband Ken Schaper. That was until I started reading more into the case. I decided against it. I just had an experience with a family on another case regarding re-opening old wounds. Sounds like the man has been through hell because of this. And I don't intend on having him relive it. I selected Holding Back The Years by Simply Red for this entry. It's the wrong year but I listened to it a few times while writing this entry. And the lyrics kinda fit the case in a way.

Gayla Christine Schaper

"She's still considered a missing person, officially," said Detective Earl Aston of the Latah County Sheriff's Office, but it's presumed she was murdered.

Date Of Birth: 5/1/1951 
Hair and Eyes: Blonde & Blue
Height & Weight: 5'8 & 128lbs
Parents: LaVerne & Connie Nelson
Husband: Ken Schaper (Owner of Dutch Boy Dairy)
Residence: 236 Rural Route 3 Box, Moscow, Idaho (Address has since been changed)
Date Missing: 6/29/1979
Missing From: Moscow, Idaho
Last Seen Wearing: Blue Sweater, Gold Shirt, Blue Levi Jeans 
& Sneakers

Details of Disappearance

This area is close to where Gayla was dropped off by her husband Ken that fateful evening.

On the evening of June 29th 1979 Ken Schaper dropped his wife off on Lynnville Road near State Highway 8 to feed her 2 horses. Ken had plans to go wash his car in town and return within the hour. Gayla was either going to her parents house (Woodlawn Hills) that was a few miles away, or back to the couples home. Both were within walking distance. When Ken returned within the hour Gayla was nowhere to be found. He checked both their house and her parents residence. The family began searching and when that became fruitless they notified the authorities later that day. 

In August of 1979, Around 2 months after Gayla's disappearance. Gayla's mother Connie Nelson received 2 calls from a person who sounded like her daughter. They stated they needed help and the calls ended abruptly. Law Enforcement installed a tape recorder at the residence in the hope that more calls would come in. None did. In the beginning, Gayla's husband was naturally the primary focus. But he was eventually discounted when he passed a polygraph in 1993.

Law Enforcement is on the record stating he was officially cleared of any wrongdoing and is not considered a suspect. When asked his opinion in the early years of the investigation, Ken stated someone was "out to get them and he didn't know who it was." He cited an incident on Good Friday of 1979 as an example. A little more than a month before Gayla vanished the couple received a letter in the mail on Good Friday. All it said was "You've sold out to the devil". 

The message was written in letters that were cut out of magazines and newspapers. He also stated the couple had received calls in the middle of the night in the months prior to Gayla's disappearance. Whether they were connected to the case is anyone's guess. Law Enforcement's opinion of the case evolved over time. At first they stated it was "Highly Unlikely" that Gayla was abducted.  As the years passed they changed that position. In 2008, Law Enforcement is on record stating they believed Gayla was abducted and murdered. And the motive was sexual in nature. 


It was clear that early on in the investigation Law Enforcement had no suspects in Gayla's case. They even were so desperate they tried getting assistance from Dorothy Allison of all people. If you read the newspaper articles years later you can tell how much of an effect this had on Ken. He is quoted as saying "It's just been torture on me". Almost a year after Ken was cleared of any involvement in his wife's disappearance something happened in Moscow that you wouldn't think would be related to Gayla's disappearance. 

On October 26th, 1993 During a drunken argument that was going on 4 hours, William Gale Hagedorn shot his live in girlfriend Joann Grace Romero in the side with a .38 Caliber handgun. She was rushed to the hospital where she later died. Hagedorn was later tried and found guilty. The couples relationship was always considered to be a violent one. I'm gonna be honest, William Gale Hagedorn was a straight up piece of shit. He beat women and was a drunk. Now how would this all be connected to Gayla do you ask? Well the Hagedorns lived across the street from the pasture where Gayla went missing. 

They actually owned the land that Gayla's horses were on. Oh and that's not all. According to Gayla's family Joann was killed because of what she knew William and his dad, Larry did to a woman inside a metal shop they owned in 1979. And they weren't the only ones who insinuated that they had something to do with Gayla's disappearance. Larry's own son almost spilled the beans. According to Law Enforcement when questioned about this William stated he "Didn't want to get his dad (Larry) in trouble". He then shut up and stopped talking about it. So I guess this means that being a complete waste of skin can sometimes be hereditary. 

Larry also happened to own an excavation business as well as a backhoe. Once privy to this information Law Enforcement took no time in searching for Gayla. Armed with a Search Warrant they immediately started excavating around Hagedorn's property. They uncovered some clothes specifically a blouse and some tennis shoes that were wrapped in some curtains. The clothing was described as being similar to the ones Gayla was wearing the day she went missing. In addition to the clothes, they also found 2 bone fragments. All the items were later sent to the FBI Crime Lab in Quantico. All that was said regarding these items was that there was nothing substantial enough to file charges. 

On a positive note they did find an illegally owned firearm at the residence. And as a result, they threw Larry's punk ass in jail because he was a convicted felon. Other than that Gayla's body was never found. Nor was Larry or his son William ever prosecuted for the crime. As the saying goes, No Body No Case." Which is bullshit by the way. But that is another story. 


Seems as tho Law Enforcement checked out Larry Hagedorn before making their way back to him after his piece of shit son shot and killed Joann Romero. He is on record as taking a polygraph and passing it. Which is why the investigators probably didn't come back to him until after Romero's killing. I have a theory which is supported by the facts present. I believe that since Larry lived close to the Schaper's he got to see quite a bit of Gayla. The Schaper's owned a Dutch Boy Dairy and because of that were likely busy people. He probably saw them coming and going a lot. And you can tell right off how attractive Gayla was. Big gorgeous smile. She seemed like an overly nice person just by looking at her. So she probably said "Hi" to Larry whenever she saw him. And he prob saw her trotting around in some tight levi's and became obsessed. 

I believe he was likely behind the phone calls as well as the letter coming to the house. I believe he was waiting for an opportunity. There was virtually no way for him to know that Gayla was gonna be dropped off at the pasture while Ken left to get his car washed. I think he just saw it as an opportunity to do what he was wanting to do for a long time. Which means he was likely watching her and had been for a long time. He probably approached her with a gun and took her from that point. I can't fathom, And I don't want to, think of what she probably went through. While researching this case I found her yearbook pictures. And all I could think was that this beautiful young girl doesn't know the horror that awaits her in ten years. 

I'd hate to think he kept her alive for a period of time after her abduction. But if I am correct and he was planning this for some time. Odds are he probably did. 

Why do I say that? The calls to her mother 2 months after she vanished. Her mom was certain it was Gayla. Now I know most readers will think that a mother in her position will likely reach for anything in order to hope that her daughter was still alive. And you're right. But the calls suddenly stopped right after Law Enforcement put a recording system on their phone line. So that is either a coincidence or he knew. And it wouldn't be hard for him to find out. All he had to do was talk to his grieving, desperate, and lost neighbor Ken who was missing his wife. 

"How can I help Ken? Has there been any progress? Have you heard from Gayla?" And Ken being desperate would tell him the information he had. So something tells me its a good possibility that Gayla was alive for a good period of time. How long? There is no way of knowing unless William starts to tell his side of the story. And I believe he knows. When Law Enforcement questioned a family member of Joann's they stated they believed she was killed because she knew "Bill and Larry raped and killed a girl in that green metal shop at 3242 Lenville Rd. many years ago. And that girl was never found."

So not only does he know. He was involved. It turns my stomach thinking about this. I hope that sick son of a bitch is getting raped in prison everyday for what he and his dad did to Gayla. I hope there is an actual hell and that piece of shit Larry is burning for eternity. I'd piss on the evil bastard's grave. Yeah, Larry is dead. He died in 2005. I wish I knew more about the bone fragments that were found. As well as the clothing. But since the investigation is still active they won't release that info. Even if the case is cold as ice. 

Pretty obvious I think Gayla was murdered. No reason for her to leave. Especially on foot. And if the Schaper's had another vehicle Ken would've noticed it missing. And I don't think she got lost and perished. That pasture isn't that big. And based upon her plans she seemed familiar enough to walk a few miles. 

The Schapers seemed to have a strong marriage. And she also partly owned Dutch Boy Dairy. It's impossible for me to imagine her leaving to start another life. She didn't have any known means or reasons to do it. There is another possibility that the calls and the letter the couple received were entirely unrelated to the Hagedorns. Ken even stated at one point he thought Gayla was taken by a few people who had previously visited the farm in the months prior. He thought that because they kept insisting on talking to her instead of him. Hmmmm Wonder why???? 

Probably two guys who just liked to talk to a pretty cowgirl. I mean hell if we took the case out of the equation and I was asked who would I rather have a conversation with....Gayla or Ken.....Hmmmmm That's a tough one! But back to the letter and calls. Larry may have known about them. And decided that if he were to abduct Gayla that day. The authorities as well as Ken would likely try and connect her abduction to those incidents. I doubt it. But it's a possibility. 

I may be way off base here with my speculation. I usually don't speculate. But the known facts of this case lead me to my theory. And there is too much circumstantial evidence that leads back to the Hagedorns. As I stated Larry's guilty ass died in August of 2005 and his evil cowardly son is still serving life for Joann's murder. Gayla's father LaVerne died in 2016 after a 2 year battle with cancer. He died never knowing what happened to his daughter. Looks as if as of at least 2016 Connie is still kicking. 

I hope she gets answers before she passes on. Ken later on remarried and has been so for over 30 years now. He is still haunted by the day in question. Which is why I didn't try and contact him. I hope he is at peace in some way. Until next time.

Missing: Army Veteran Thomas Phifer

I did this case mainly because some websites leave this case open to interpretation. Not many databases have Tom in them. But the ones that do say something along the lines that Kay was also missing. So I started with her. I also did it because I have been on a Veteran kick lately. These guys really need not to be forgotten. Lionel Richie's "Hello" was Number One on the Billboards at the time. (Irony) What a Year for music.

Thomas Phifer

Date Of Birth: 
Height & Weight:
6'0 & 160 lbs
Hair & Eyes:
Brown Hair
Brown Eyes
Disk in back of Neck

Details of Disappearance

Note: I really couldn't find much on any either of these 2 people. I only tried a few hours though. Kay was divorced a little more than 2 years before this incident. And Tom Phifer attended Muskegon High School in 1971. He was a Sophomore at that time. He didn't attend the year prior or the year after. I tried finding some relatives on Facebook to see if I could get any more info on this incident. I saw some Phifers in the Muskogee area of Michigan. But I don't think they are direct relatives. As far as I ascertain, He was the son of a Barbara Jean Temple-Phifer and a Reverand Clardie Phifer. (Both deceased). There are some really easy questions I wish I had answers to. Like what his rank was and whether he was active or reserve.  

On May 18th 1984 Tom Phifer and Kay Francis Hollis left Denver, Colorado at around 6pm en route to Grand Junction. The trip would have probably taken a little over 5 and a half hours. They both left in a Green 1972 Ford Pinto with Colorado License Plate AGB319. Neither would arrive at their destination. On Sunday June 3rd, 1984 36 Year Old Kay Hollis' body was pulled from the Colorado River. She had apparently drowned. There was no signs of foul play. According to the Newspapers she was identified through fingerprints and there were no signs of trauma found during the autopsy. Tom as well as the car were unaccounted for. At the time Sheriff's Deputies were still attempting to figure out where the car might have went off the road. According to Sheriff's Investigator Mike Smith there was a good possibility the car along with Tom Phifer were still in the river. "We don't really know what happened." he is quoted as saying. 

The Daily Sentinel: 6/7/1984 (Grand Junction)


I think there is a good probability that whoever was driving may have fallen asleep at the wheel. Hence why the detective were having a hard time trying to figure out where the car actually went off the road. There were likely no skid marks. And whoever was driving didn't have an opportunity to react in time. If they left around 6pm. And it takes around 5 and a half hours to get to Grand Junction. (without stops) You're looking at arriving around midnight or later. Tom is prob still in the car in the river somewhere. I did look to see if any John Doe's matched him and they didn't. I also searched for news articles about finding bodies in the river after. And there was one not long after they found Kay. But the investigator stated in certain words it wasn't Tom. There were a few other pics of Tom I found but they were such low quality I didn't include them. I couldn't find one of Kay at all. I'm really surprised that dumbass David Paulides hasn't taken off with this case yet. It has his bullshit spin story written all over it. Just imagine him on Coast to Coast...

Paulides: "Well George they found one body.....There were no signs of trauma to the body at all.....And they were even able to fingerprint her after she was supposedly in the river for more than 2 weeks. So rigor mortis didn't even set in yet..... 

Noory: "OH MY! So David are you saying that it's possible that she may have been placed in the water at a later time?"

Paulides: "Well George, I have been asked that every time I discuss this case. And it's a good possibility. I mean the investigators couldn't even determine where the car went off the road. So I always ask myself, Did it even go off the road to begin with?"

Noory: "Are you saying David, Are you saying you think there is a possibility the car along with Tom aren't even in the river to begin with?"

Paulides: "Well they have never recovered either have they George? There were no signs of it ever going in the water. This might be something we can't even begin to comprehend. Do you know how many Bigfoot sightings there are in the State of Colorado on a yearly basis?"

Noory: "Hold that thought David, And we'll be back after a word from our sponsors."

Meanwhile I've slipped into a boredom induced coma listening to the dipshittery afoot on Coast to Coast. Alright until next time you all. Thanks for reading.

Life and Disappearance

Donald Joseph Connell or “Donnie” was born on October 31st 1958. He is the son of a Former Marine and Real Estate Manager Donald S. Connell & his wife Delores Patricia Mello-Connell. Delores worked for the Rhode Island Unemployment Office for 18 Years before retiring in 2004. Interesting fact about Donnie's dad, He was one of only 300 Marines to actually land on Japan during World War 2. Donnie graduated from Middletown High School in 1977. He was a very athletic and strong young man. He was a gifted Basketball Player and was a Co-Captain of his team. Donnie's team was the underdog that in 1976 went on the win the Rhode Island State Basketball Title. I read his play was likened to that of one Pistol Pete Maravich. Donnie followed in his father's footsteps and joined the Marines after High School. On December 2nd 1986 Donnie left his parents house at 6 Record St on foot en route to his sister's house that was a street over. (Don't have that address) His sister was driving to her house during that time. When she arrived Donnie was not there. And no one has seen him since. Donnie was reported missing by his dad 10 days later on his sister's birthday. One would reason that Donnie's sister wasn't concerned and probably thought Donnie had changed his mind or something came up. That is likely why he was reported missing 10 days later. Donnie's disappearance didn't get a single newspaper article or anything. Literally nothing on this man's disappearance. Which is why I wrote this entry. I did reach out to Donnie's sister Anita on Facebook. But she probably hasn't seen the message yet. And I can't request her because I am in Facebook Jail for “bullying” a suspect involved in a Missing Persons case. Hopefully she reads this entry. Donnie isn't on the Doe Network yet and that's due to the United States Government being administratively inept in getting Anita Donnie's medical records.

I need more information on this disappearance before I even begin to try and give an analysis as to what I think may have happened. One thing is sure, No one is picking on this guy. Not by themselves and not without a weapon. I don't think he up and left. Doesn't seem to be a reason for him to do it. Although my knowledge of this case is limited. Hopefully his sister contacts me.
