    Vernon Human Remains Case Highlights the Many Missing Persons Incidents Still Unsolved
    There are several in the area.
    By Chris Dehnel, Patch Staff | Mar 22, 2013 5:35 am ET | Updated Mar 22, 2013 5:44 am ET

    The discovery of human remains off West Street in Vernon last week has illustrated the many missing person cases in the state.

    According to a U.S. Justice Department Web site dedicated to missing persons, there are 184 cases in Connecticut.

    Several of them are from the area. The three most notable around these parts are Lisa White, who was 13 when she was last seen in Vernon on Nov. 1, 1974; Janice Pockett, who was 7 when she disappeared in Tolland on July 26, 1973; and Deborah Spickler, who was last seen in Vernon on July 24, 1968 when she was 13.

    But there are more cases close by, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System site:

    • Todd Coate, 36, who was last seen in Enfield on Oct. 3, 2012.

    • Haidar Abushaqra, 41, who was last seen in Manchester on Dec. 7, 2011.



    • Luis Narvaez, who was 27 when he disappeared in Manchester on March 9, 2010.

    • Ashley Crooks, who was 18 when she was last seen in Windsor Locks on June 21, 2009.

    • Katie Neeley, an 18-year-old who was last seen in Manchester on May 12, 2009.

    • Awilda Marrero, who disappeared in Enfield on April 6, 2009 at age 43.

    * Eric Thruelson, who was 54 when he was last seen in Tolland on Oct. 7, 2008.

    • Carol Shapiro, who was 43 when she disappeared in Manchester in Aug. 31, 2007.

    • Mark Johnson, a 41-year-old who was last seen in Tolland on Oct. 24, 2006.

    • Robert Cavanagh, who disappeared in Mansfield on Dec. 21, 2004 at age 51.

    • Jeffrey Stone, who disappeared in Glastonbury at age 45 on Jan 30, 2003.

    • Bene Rothstein, who was 45 when he was last seen in South Windsor on Feb. 17, 1993.

    • Richard Boissonneau, who was 49 when he was last seen in Manchester on Sept. 25, 1984.

    Investigators said it could take weeks before a positive identification can be made on the skeletal remains found off West Street on March 13, a police spokesman said on Tuesday.

    Vernon police spokesman Lt. William Meier said that Vernon detectives are continuing to work with the state police, the state medical examiner and the State Forensic Lab to identify the skeletal remains recovered from the property - 126 and 130 West St.

    Det. James Grady is the lead local investigator.

    A former town dump is near the two homes.

    A skull was found by a 23-year-old resident looking for scrap metal to finish a college sculpture project. Investigators worked for several days at the site to retrieve as much as possible.

    The remains have been brought to the State Forensic Lab for identification and the Forensic Lab is estimating it "will likely take several weeks to make an identification," Meier said.

    While awaiting a positive identification of the remains, Vernon detectives are "actively working with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies on the investigation," Meier said.

    All communication regarding the Vernon forensics case is being handled through Vernon police. The families of the missing girls are not speaking to the media, Meier said.
