Circumstances

John never picked up his brother after the dance. He has never been heard from again. The next day, John’s truck was found abandoned in an alley off of Main Street in Monroe City. His keys, coat and gloves were inside it.

There were rumors after John’s disappearance. It was heard that he was killed in an altercation with a local boy, possibly a fight over a girl. The stories have not been confirmed, however.

John’s mother and brother are now deceased. But his father and sister are alive and hope for resolution in his case. His family has had a tombstone made for him. It sits in Palmyra Cemetery. His disappearance remains unsolved.
