Real Name: Daniel Short
Nicknames: No Known Nicknames
Location: Noel, Missouri
Date: October 6, 1989
Details: Dan Short was the manager of the local bank in Noel, Missouri. He vanished after it was robbed, so he was the first suspect in the case. However, the investigation changed after his body was found taped to a chair and floating in the river. He had apparently been dropped in the water while he was still alive. The state police were now not only searching for bank thieves but also cold-blooded killers.
Suspects: None at time of broadcast.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the March 21, 1990 episode.
This case was also covered on Forensic Files on Court TV.
Results: Solved. Fingerprints found on a wad of tape used to bound Dan and a cartridge shell implicated brothers Shannon and Joseph Agofsky. They were convicted of Dan's murder and sentenced to life. In March 2013, Joseph died in prison from unknown causes at the age of 46; Shannon is on death row for the 2001 murder of a fellow prison inmate.
