Flashback Friday

This Flashback Friday MP, Kenneth Dewayne Stott, disappeared from Porter, Texas on September 17, 1983. He was 21 years old and left the Porter Lounge, a still-extant bar, with two men in a Ford Maverick. He was carrying $240 to use for a down payment on a truck, which makes me wonder if perhaps his two friends robbed and killed him. $240 was worth more 34 years ago than now.

Kenneth’s body, it says, may be buried in Montgomery County, Texas — which gives people 1,077 square miles to search in.

      I know what it says, but that was written years ago and she’s still on NamUs, which suggests the author was mistaken about Laurie not being missing.

    That is intersting:
    1) according to the article refered in that link: “At 20, he married Laurie Peccole, a high school friend and daughter of one of Las Vegas’ most powerful real estate developers.
    2) and from this article Las Vegas developer Peccole dies at 85 (https://lasvegassun.com/news/1999/dec/16/las-vegas-developer-peccole-dies-at-85/): Mr William P. “Bill” Peccole died in 1999 and was survived by his daughter Laurie Bayne,
    3) Laurie Bayne’s son William Bayne posted in the “whereaboutstillunknown” : Mom’s still alive. I’m her son, William Bayne. I’m sure this must be a different Laurie Amico.

      Weird, the link to the article doesn’t seem to work for me anymore. I get “Not found”. Maybe I need to try from a desktop instead of my phone.

        laurie Peccole now Bayne is listed on both of her parents obituaries as surviving them:

        William P. Peccole:

        Wanda Lamb Peccole:

        it looks like her last name is Bayne now ( according to what William Bayne posted on “whereaboutstillunknown”) and she has a Facebook page:

        There is William Bayne among her contacts, and he looks like he might be her son. besides, on his Facebook page he has “Vice President (United States) at Peccole Nevada Corp.” as his job info.


        Or she is definitely alive or this is a strangest case of coincidence as I have ever seen. Besides, none of the last names are , as to say, common.

        I think there is more confusion here than I initially realized. IF you are going with the idea that the missing Laurie Amico is not the same person as the one living in Las Vegas, then the maiden name Peccole and all the real estate connections for her father and her former husband Anthony Amico would not apply. All of that is clearly about the one who is living in Vegas. What is in question is whether the MP is a different Laurie Amico who was also married to an Anthony Amico, also lived in Fort Lauderdale, and was the same age as the one who lives in Las Vegas. Personally, I think they are the same person. I would be more inclined to think they were different people if there was DNA submitted for the MP because it would indicate that her bio family doesn’t know where she is. But there isn’t. There are lots of Florida articles which refer to Anthony/Tony Amico, he is still in Florida and still in real estate, but that is the former husband of the one who is alive.

    Just to clarify a bit, I tried to email the person who left that comment but the email came back as an email that doesn’t exist. This was right after it was posted.

    There was an article that I had linked to but it seems to be gone. It was about a Tony Amico and it connected him to Ft Lauderdale and said his wife Laurie was the daughter of a Las Vegas real estate developer. I believe the article was from before her disappearance.

    So if it’s not the same person, then there were 2 Laurie Amicos in Fort Lauderdale who were married to an Anthony/Tony Amico because namus also lists that name as the husband of the mp.

    So for now I’ve left the article as is in the hopes that someone can confirm or deny my suspicion that they are one and the same.
