Flashback Friday: Tom Ray Starkel

This week’s Flashback Friday case is Tom Ray Starkel, a fresh-faced 19-year-old who disappeared from Palmdale, California on December 5, 1979. Another man turned up driving Starkel’s car, with a recently fired gun hidden under the driver’s seat, and gave multiple different stories as to what happened. He was released without charge.

I wonder what happened to the suspect. I suppose I’ll never know, unless he winds up getting charged in Starkel’s disappearance. With a name like “Craig Moore” he would be hard to track.

      It looks like it very well could be.
