The skeletal remains of Evelyn Shelton have also been found, last Monday, in one of those ubiquitous “wooded areas” in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. Evelyn disappeared from the city of Spartanburg in 2011, at the age of 42. No word on the cause of death, but from the circumstances of her case I would guess it was a homicide.
On April 2nd I had another Executed Today entry run that I forgot to post: Henry Frank Decaillet. He was a middle-aged married father of five who fell in love with, and had a sexual relationship with, a girl named Phoebe who was either 12 or 13 at the time. (Ew.) After a year or so she got tired of him and wanted to date boys her own age and he shot her because she was “living an immoral life” and he wanted to stop her from “becoming a prostitute.” He never attempted to hide what he’d done and was gassed in California in 1954.
I’ve got five cases to resolve next update. (Not sure if that update will be today. I know it’s been almost a week but I’ve got a lot of stuff to do today. If not today, then tomorrow.)
The body of John Henry Dubose, a 38-year-old missing from South Carolina since 2000, was found inside his submerged vehicle in Lake Russell. They’re still investigating but my guess is it was an accident.
The body of Michael Damian Rust, who was reported missing from Saguache, Colorado in 2009 (I updated his case earlier this month), was found in January. The remains weren’t identified until now. Authorities haven’t released any info about how the body was found or what the cause of death was, but the circumstances of his disappearance strongly indicate he was murdered.
Susan Glaser, who disappeared from Wisconsin in 1995, has been identified. Her body was found in Portage County, Wisconsin in May 1998. Glaser’s boyfriend, who made “suspicious statements” about her case, committed suicide several months after she went missing.
Meanwhile the NCMEC reports that Marifer and Stephanie Garcia, sisters who were abducted by their non-custodial mother from Michigan in 2005, have been found safe. Stephanie was two years old at the time of her abduction and Marifer was one day past her first birthday. They would now be 13 and 12 respectively.
Executed Today by me (the entry not the hanging obviously): William Hole, who murdered his wife. It’s a pretty sad tale of drunken domestic violence by a mentally ill and probably brain-damaged individual.
This week’s featured missing person is Arlene Kazuko Tsuji, missing from Aptos, California since October 24, 1991. She was 24 years old at the time and is believed to have been abducted while taking her evening constitutional.
I can’t find out much about this case. Arlene’s high school class page lists her as deceased. I’m afraid they’re probably right.
