Missing Man’s Car Found on Hernando-Desoto Bridge
Frazier’s white, 2002 Dodge Caravan was found abandoned on the Hernando-Desoto bridge Monday morning. Marty Lipinski, Frazier’s brother-in-law says Frazier never made it to work that morning, and when he didn’t come home in the evening Frazier’s wife called police.

Recently Karen Jo Smith’s missing persons case was part of several families who hoped to have these unsolved cases aided through new rewards. $20 million dollars was being offered as rewards for 20 missing persons cases, $100,000 for each. Karen Joe Smith’s case was one that will be receiving the reward. The reward is good from Sunday, November 4 through November 24.
Last month, Patti Bishop, stepmother of Karen Jo Smith, who disappeared in Indianapolis on Dec. 27, 2000, contacted Mammana about her vision for a “Squeaky Wheel Tour” to draw attention to missing persons cases.
Mammana liked the idea and agreed to fund rewards to try to draw out information. In short order, he and Bishop devised a plan to offer $2 million for 20 cases for 20 days — Sunday through Nov. 24 — with $100,000 dedicated to each case. (Indy Star)
Thanks to Bishop’s involvement and her knowledge of Indiana cases, the state is heavily represented on the list. The other 13 cases are from Missouri, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Alabama and Arkansas.
