Walter David Brawner was last seen at his home on McClain Street in Shepherd, Texas. This incident occurred on June 10, 2008. He has never been heard from again. His family reported him missing in mid-June. This was after his sons went to his house for Father’s Day and found the house locked and deserted. Brawner left behind his van, his medicine, his cigarettes, and clothes in the washing machine at home.

There were no indications that a struggle had taken place. His relatives stated he couldn’t have gotten very far on foot because he had so much trouble walking. They describe him as a reclusive person. He has few friends and wasn’t close to his family. His son had not seen him in years prior to his disappearance.

Steven Ray Fester, a neighbor and friend of Brawner, is considered a person of interest in his case. After Brawner’s disappearance, Fester connected his own trailer to Brawner’s electricity. He also had a key to Brawner’s house; it would be uncharacteristic of Brawner to give one to another person.

Police searched Fester’s home and found Brawner’s .380 semi-automatic pistol inside it. He was ultimately indicted for stealing the gun and forging Brawner’s signature on four personal checks, which he cashed in the days following Brawner’s disappearance. They totaled $650. He claimed Brawner gave him the checks and gun.

Fester was sentenced to probation for the charge and maintains his innocence in Brawner’s disappearance. In 2011, he was convicted of a series of armed robberies and sentenced to twenty-two years in prison.

Brawner’s disappearance remains unsolved. Authorities believe he was taken against his will. And his family members think he’s probably deceased.
