Some skeletal remains found near Glide, Oregon have been identified as fourteen-year-old Stephanie Condon, missing since October 1998 from Myrtle Creek, Oregon. She disappeared while babysitting. After over ten years, at last her family can bury her.
I remember reading about Stephanie’s disappearance right after it happened. For about five seconds she was listed as a runaway, but the police quickly concluded she’d been kidnapped. I was thirteen years old when she disappeared. She’s almost exactly a year older than me; she was born on October 8, 1984 and I was born on October 5, 1985. Good student. Volleyball player. All-American girl.
No cause of death has of yet, but it’s presumably a homicide. The cops have a suspect, a convicted sex offender they’ve been looking at since Stephanie disappeared. He’s currently in custody in Nevada on unrelated charges. The Oregon cops are grilling him.
Two days and I’m already missing my website and wanting to get back to it, especially with this news.
