In honor of Pride Month I’m featuring a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer missing person every day for the month of June. Today’s case is Kori A. Glossett, who was 25 years old when he disappeared sometime in the second half of June or in early July 2016. I have the place of his disappearance given as Van Wert, Ohio, but he was a drifter and also hung around in Delphos, Middle Point and Lima.
I’ve written about Kori on here a few times before, because he was local to where I grew up. We attended the same school (not at the same time) and I knew relatives of his.
I haven’t found any news stories about his disappearance that are more recent than a year and a half ago, but I know foul play is suspected in Kori’s case. The cops have executed some search warrants and conducted some digs; they usually don’t go digging places if they expect to find a missing person alive.
I know he had issues and he had a lot of enemies. He was either gay or bisexual, and open about it, which by itself is enough to make people in rural Ohio hate you, and which is why I’m profiling him today. Kori didn’t deserve whatever it was that happened to him, and his family doesn’t deserve to be stuck in limbo like this.
