Jason Saul and Kenford Farley

Annie gave me this article about the disappearance of Jason Saul. I had had nothing on his disappearance before. It appears to have been one of those “lost/injured missing” cases.

I thought I’d look up Kenford Farley, Jason’s friend who was with him. I found out a fair bit, actually. It appears he was adopted at the age of three days. He was married by the time he was sixteen, to an eighteen-year-old named Monica. This in 1996 — unusual. I wonder if she was pregnant. Anyway, that year they ran a stop sign, crashed into a brand-new, never-used ambulance and totaled it. This was in Colorado. Neither of them were wearing seat belts and both got ejected from their car and had to be hospitalized. I found a Colorado Springs Gazette article about the accident in Newslibrary.

I looked for Kenford on Facebook and couldn’t find him. Which is understandable, because he’s been dead for twelve years. He died on December 5, 2000, aged twenty-one.

I wonder what happened. I can’t find any articles about his death, whether it was an accident, suicide, maybe some tragic illness. He was so young.
