This gives hope that other cold cases from this time can still be solved.
There have been a few lately.

Here in Aus we've recently had a case solved fom the 70s-80's (well it certainly looks that way) involving the bombing of the Family Court and 4 murders. They always had a prime suspect and a tiny drop of degraded blood (that in reality could it seems only have been left by the killer) but not enoug to get DNA from, as technology progressed they eventually got the DNA and made an arrest.

I've followed this case a little but I'm not sure what proof they have. If they find them on this guy's property then that will pretty much clinch it.

They couldn't get a guilty on the Etan Patz case either, although it was a hung jury and they are trying again.

I found this so interesting I looked it up. I found this. I thought you might find it interesting, also but, who knows?

My uncle bought me Mr Begg's book, "Into Thin Air" for my 12th birthday. I was thrilled and read it until it literally fell apart.

Now I am thinking I will get another copy as soon as possible, I wonder if I really remember it as well I suspect i do :-)

To the list I would like to add two British famous mystery disappearances:
Lord Lucan - 1974
Shergar - 1983

Have read that the question of course, as raised in the article, is which was based on which.

Jennifer Kesse's disappearance is still pretty freaky. Her possible abductor was caught on surveillance parking her car outside a nearby apartment complex. However, the CCTV was outdated and only took a snapshot every three seconds. In each of the three snapshots the person is obscured by a fencepost. It's almost as if they were destined to get away with it.

Jason Jolkowski's disappearance is mindblowing. Jason was a 19 year old kid who vanished into thin air in June 13, 2001. He was called into work early but because his car was being repaired he arranged for a colleague to pick him up at a nearby school. This was about eight blocks away from Jason's home. Jason never made it to the school and has never been seen since.

The last sighting of Jason was from his younger brother who saw Jason carrying the trash cans in at 10.45 am. This sighting was also confirmed by one of the neighbours. There are no other sightings of Jason past this and there are no other clues. At some point during the short walk to the meeting point he vanished. It's a complete dead-end.
This is still my pet missing persons case and one that I can't get my head around. A young man takes a short walk on a summer morning through a residential neighbourhood and vanishes into thin air. No clues, no leads, nothing.

I simply can't find an angle for this case. Jason was apparently an introverted but good-natured kid, he had no trouble with the law or any drug problems etc. It's possible he was targeted by some kind of sexual predator but he doesn't fit the usual victim profile. He was 19 years old and over six foot tall. He doesn't really have the usual risk factors of a missing person. I did suspect his workplace, as they were the only ones privy to his change of schedule that morning but what reason would a pizzeria have for conspiring to murder one of their porters? Unless he fell through some kind of manhole, I got nothing!
