Details: Nineteen-year-old Susan Cappel vanished in March of 1982 from a supermarket that she worked at in her hometown of Newcomerstown, Ohio. Susan was walking to her car when a blue car pulled up to her, and the driver talked to her. She then got into the car and was never seen again. In 1983, a Greyhound bus driver claimed to have seen Susan sometime after her disappearance, although that sighting was never confirmed. Her family has never stopped searching for her and believe that her ex-husband, Allen Cappel, was involved in her disappearance. However, no one has ever been charged in the case and Susan remains missing.
Suspects: Susan's family believes that Allen may have killed her in order to get full custody over their son, Damin. Another possible theory that they believe may have happened involved two friends of Allen, Patrick and Robert Parrish. Patrick owned a car similar to the one that Susan was last seen getting into. Her family believes that Patrick and Robert threatened Damin's life, and forced Susan to disappear in order for Allen to recieve custody. Two weeks after Susan vanished, Robert and Patrick died in a car accident.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the October 25, 1989 episode.
Results: Unsolved. In 2003, Allen Cappel died without ever revealing what he might have known about his ex-wife's disappearance. Susan remains missing to this day.
