Laura Garza Missing Last Seen Leaving the Marquee Manhattan Nightclub at 4 AM Wednesday 12/3/08

25 year old Laura Garza has been missing since Wednesday Laura_garza2morning, December 3, 2008. Laura Garza from Bay Ridge was last seen leaving a Manhattan nightclub, The Marquee, at 4 am with two men. Police fear that she may have been harmed by a convicted sex offender. Police described Garza as 5-feet-2 and 120 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

“We suspect foul play and are concerned for her safety,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said yesterday.

Police last night were questioning one of the two men, a 25-year-old once convicted of a sex crime, after going to his home in Wallkill, in upstate Orange County.

Investigators did not find Garza at the house, but they found a piece of carpet mysteriously cut out from its place on the floor, a police source said. Blood stains were also found in the house.

Laura Garza was captured on club video tape reported leaving the night club with two men willingly. However, did Laura Garza know who or what she was leaving the club with?

At some point, Garza split up from her friend and was captured on video leaving the location with her dancing partner and another man.

She appeared to have left with them willingly, and didn’t look intoxicated, police sources said.

Sources said the men drove with her upstate. At some point, one got out and went home.

Witnesses at the club told cops that the men with whom Garza was spotted leaving were “regulars,” and were able to identify them. This led cops to the upstate home of the sex offender, sources said.

Investigators believe that whatever happened to Garza occurred upstate, and the New York State Police are now leading the investigation.

Two Men questioned in the case of missing Laura Garza

On Friday night, the police were questioning two people they suspected were involved in Ms. Garza’s disappearance, said Paul J. Browne, the chief police spokesman.

“We suspect foul play and are concerned for her safety,” he said. “Detectives identified two men who were seen leaving the club with her and determined that both of them reside outside the city in upstate New York.”

Cops hunting a woman who disappeared from a Manhattan nightclub towed a bloodstained SUV from their prime suspect’s upstate family home today – hours after the sexual deviant called a pal begging him not to speak to police, sources said.

Investigators searched lakes and a wooded area near Michael Mele’s family’s Middletown house for Laura Garza, 25, whose case is being treated as a homicide.

Another police source said bloodstains were found in the SUV.

Cops also said they found a piece of carpet mysteriously cut out in an apartment Mele maintains near the family home. More blood was allegedly found in the house.

Neighbors said landscapers working on the property discovered a knife, which they turned over to police.

UPDATE II: Man seen with missing NYC woman jailed in Rockland

The Rockland County Sheriff’s Department says 23-year-old Michael Mele, a registered sex offender, is being held on $50,000 bail.

Detective Lt. William Barbera says Mele violated the terms of his probation by consuming alcohol and by failing to report to his probation officer. Mele’s attorney did not return a message seeking comment.

Mele and another man were seen leaving a Manhattan nightclub early Wednesday with 25-year-old Laura Garza.

UPDATE III: Police divers now searching east side of Echo Lake for Garza

State police divers are now searching the east side of Echo Lake in their continued search for clues about the disappearance of Brooklynite Laura Garza.

Seven divers have been at the lake since this morning, working in bitterly-cold water and under the 5-inch-thick ice.

Police divers were last at Echo Lake on Dec. 23, 2008.

The woman’s abandoned car was found Thursday morning still running on a street 100 yards from her home. Her purse was still inside her vehicle when police arrived.

Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play but are looking for a body at the park, which covers nearly 11,000 acres.

“Jennifer’s a loving mother and a loving wife,” said family spokesman Michael South. “We just want to return her as quickly as possible.”

A couple of months ago, Cornell proved that Hancock is the father of her 17-year-old daughter, and she began asking him for child support.

Man charged with kidnapping missing woman

34 year old Jason Hancock, the ex-boyfriend of missing Jennifer Cornell has been arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping. At least for now. The warrant against Jason Hancock alleges he committed the crime of aggravated kidnapping by “falsely imprisoning” Jennifer Cornell with the intent “to inflict serious bodily injuries while in the possession of a deadly weapon.” At issue appears to be back child support as investigators say that Cornell had named Hancock as the father of her 17-year-old daughter and may have been seeking back pay for child support.

A Clay County man was arrested Friday night and charged with kidnapping a Hilham woman who has been missing since Thursday.

Jason Hancock, 34, of the Willow Grove area of Clay County, is charged with aggravated kidnapping of Jennifer Hughes Cornell, 30, of Vaughn Lane, Hilham.

Brooke Bennett Funeral and Landfill Search in Texas for Raymond Gagnon’s Laptop and Hard Drive

As Randolph, VT lay 12 year old Brooke Bennett to rest there are further investigations into the death of Brooke. Funeral services were held Wednesday, July 9, 2008 as the small town in Vermont paid their respects to 12 year old Brooke Bennett and tried to make sense out of the senseless.


Brooke Bennett, Rest in Peace

Thousands of miles away in Texas, Federal authorities were searching a landfill in San Antonio where they believe a laptop or hard drive owned by Brooke’s former step-father Raymond Gagnon containing evidence related to Brooke Bennett’s disappearance and death last month may be located. Raymond Gagnon has already facing obstruction of justice charges in the Brooke Bennett case and separate charges of child porn in AL.


Raymond Gagnon, sketch

Erik Vasys, a spokesman for the FBI’s regional office in San Antonio, Texas, said Friday that authorities are searching through trash and other waste at the Allied Waste Services Landfill off of Interstate 10 East.

That San Antonio landfill may be the dumping site for trash from a local apartment rented by Raymond Gagnon, Bennett’s former stepfather who is facing charges in Alabama for possession of child pornography.

The 40-year-old Gagnon allegedly instructed his landlord last month to throw away a safe containing a computer stored at his apartment that police say contained volumes of child pornography, including sexual photos of an underage female witness involved in Bennett’s disappearance.

“We are working to locate a hard drive or laptop computer that was disposed of at the instruction of Mr. Gagnon,” Vasys said early Friday afternoon. “Based on information we have received, this landfill is the dumping site for trash from his apartment.”

FBI Searches Texas Landfill For Safe That May Contain Child Porn

Gagnon rented a room in San Antonio from Kevin Grosenheider, who according to an affidavit told authorities he threw the safe into an apartment complex garbage bin near his home at Gagnon’s request.

Grosenheider is quoted in an affidavit as saying he didn’t know what was in the safe “but assumed it was child pornography.”

Federal prosecutors said Gagnon tried to access his ex-stepdaughter’s MySpace account “on or about” June 26 from a library computer in Cullman, Vt.

Authorities search landfill for safe

An FBI spokesman says investigators have searched for the safe over the past week.

Gagnon rented a room in San Antonio from Kevin Grosenheider, who according to an affidavit told authorities he threw the safe into an apartment complex garbage bin near his home at Gagnon’s request.

Grosenheider is quoted in an affidavit as saying he didn’t know what was in the safe “but assumed it was child pornography.”

Jeffrey Blake Stone Missing Since March 24, 2008 Found Dead in a Freezer (Nathaniel Wayne Lee and Troy Andrew Smiley Arrested for Murder)

15 year old Jeffrey Blake Stone had been missing since March 24, 2008 when he disappeared from his home Attalla, AL. Now comes the grizzly find … the body of 15 year-old Jeffrey Blake Stone was found in a freezer. The sad news of the discovery of Jeffrey Blake Stone’s body was only made worse by the manner in how he was killed. It appears from all accounts that Jeffrey Blake Stone was murdered as a thrill kill by Nathaniel Wayne Lee and Troy Andrew Smiley.

“It appears this senseless murder of this 15-year-old had been planned for weeks,” Sheriff Todd Entrekin said.

“And once they got him over there, they executed their plan for no other reason than to get the rush from killing somebody.”

Entrekin said it is believed Stone, who had been reported missing on March 24, was killed the day he went missing.

What is this world coming to? What a senseless murder.

Stone was reported missing in late march. Two young men are being questioned by deputies, and charges are expected later today.

The Etowah County Sheriff says the body was found in a chest-type freezer at a home in the Littleton community.

Investigators say they believe Stone was killed and initially buried somewhere else, and then moved to the freezer sometime last week.

The freezer found just down the road from where Stone lived.

Two Etowah County men have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Missing Jeffrey Blake Stone

Nathaniel Wayne Lee, 19, of 1176 Littleton Cut-off Road, Attalla, and Troy Andrew Smiley, 22, of 1084 Anna Drive, Attalla, have been served with warrants and are being held in the Etowah County Detention Center.

No bond was set.

Stone had been missing since March 24, and it’s believed he was killed that day. Stone was fatally shot.

Investigators received a new lead Tuesday morning that pointed them to a shallow grave on a logging road, Sheriff Todd Entrekin said. He said evidence at that site prompted investigators to obtain a search warrant for a home not far from where Stone lived with his father and stepmother, Jeff and Lynn Stone.

Etowah Thrill Kill Arrests

Wednesday night: 19-year-old Nathaniel Wayne Lee and a 22-year-old Troy Andrew Smiley are in custody, charged with murder. Detectives say the pair lived just down the road from the Stone family, where they did not work, but instead the Sheriff says they “smoked dope together” and hatched a plan to kill someone: just for the rush of killing, according to the DA. “For a 15-year-old child to be taken out of the world for two folks to have a thrill is just very disturbing to me and I think I speak for all the investigators in the Sheriff’s Department as well,” Harp said.
