This week’s featured missing person is Bruce Falconer, a 21-year-old Marine who disappeared from Bismarck, North Dakota on February 20, 1981, after a night out with his friend Tim Jewell. Jewell disappeared also, but his body was found in 1992. I suppose by then there probably wasn’t much left, but the authorities ruled the cause of death as exposure and they think Bruce probably died of exposure too.
Their car got stuck in the mud along the Missouri River and I guess the two men left to get help, but got lost. Winter weather in North Dakota is no joke, and probably both of them had been drinking.
I do think it’s slightly odd that Jewell’s body was recovered and Falconer’s wasn’t. You’d think they’d be close together.
Yeah, so this is the first time I’ve been to my computer in a few days. I’ve got a horrible cold and have mostly been lying in bed and reading a bit and sleeping a lot.
