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!
What if someone accidentally ran him over, panicked, threw the body into the car and drove off, without anyone seeing?

This is an oft-mooted theory in Jason's case, but it's not one I've ever bought into. Bodies have been moved before in hit-and-run cases, but I don't see someone bundling a grown man into their car, incriminating themselves further, instead of simply driving away.
