MP of the week: Chad Smith

This week’s featured missing person is a Smith, just like last week. Except this one is Chad Howard Smith. He disappeared on January 11, 2011, after what must have been a spectacularly rotten day for him: a horrible fight with his wife, which turned physical, followed by a drunk driving accident in a restaurant parking lot. The next day when his wife went to their home he was gone. His car turned up parked near the Ohio River.

I hope he’s still alive.

    This is where I am from and I do not remember reading this case or hearing about it on the news. After reading the details at the begining of the post, I was shocked when it read that he was an attorney. I’ll will have to do some research on this one.

    I bet they were arguing about his navel ring.

      *blinks and double-checks* Yep, he really did have one, says NamUs. Shrug.

        “Less than 20 minutes later, she said she woke to a sensation that things were wrong with her son…” I wonder if that’s the moment he passed. 😦

    Interesting. Never heard of this one. Seems like he could have committed suicide by jumping into the Ohio River, but then his body would’ve probably been recovered. Maybe he’s unidentified somewhere, like Ohio or Indiana, where his body might’ve drifted.

      That is my thought also.

    Hi, I thought you’d like to know that the URL link at the bottom of Chad Smith’s casefile (to go back to the Charley Project homepage) comes up as http://www.charleyproject.org/indwwwex.html . I really like your site btw.
