    Shortly before he went missing in 1996, a Missouri man told a friend he planned to “spill the beans” on Curtis “Wayne” Wright, who owed him money.

    Wright, who has been arrested in connection with the death of Bonita Springs doctor Teresa Sievers, also is a person of interest in the disappearance of Ronnie Bolin, a former preacher who disappeared in 1996 and whose body has never been found.

    Few details have been released about Wright’s involvement in the Sievers case, although he is a longtime friend of the doctor’s husband, Mark, who grew up in Missouri.

    Officials in Jefferson County, Missouri, confirmed earlier this month that Wright is now and has always been a person of interest in Bolin’s disappearance. Documents obtained Thursday by the Daily News give more details as to why they believe he may have been involved.

    Bolin, then 33 years old, lived in Hillsboro, Missouri, about 45 minutes outside of St. Louis. He was last seen by his father on July 8, 1996.

    His father told detectives that Bolin had loaned Wright $1,500 for a car and was having trouble getting paid back. That day, Bolin planned to meet up with Wright to collect the money, according to Bolin’s father.

    Bolin’s white Subaru was found abandoned in a St. Louis car wash the next day. The keys were still in the ignition and the driver’s side door was ajar. Detectives found no sign of a struggle.

    Bolin’s father questioned Wright, who told him he had paid Bolin and then dined with him at a St. Louis Pizza Hut. In the days afterward, Wright left the state, telling friends and relatives he was going on a vacation to Florida.

    Investigators found a phone message on Bolin’s machine that had “a male voice on it which was in a threatening manner.” Sheriff’s Office documents don’t indicate who the man was or what he said.

    One friend said Bolin threatened to “spill the beans” on Wright if he wasn’t paid back, but the friend said she didn’t know what Bolin meant by that. The same woman said she had received a call on July 9 between 8 and 10 p.m. from someone who sounded as if their mouth was covered and was involved in a struggle. The woman said both she and her daughter had received similar calls, but they assumed it was just a prank.

    Bolin’s brother said someone had broken into Bolin’s trailer that March and stolen a computer. The brother suspected Wright was the thief. In April, the brother said Wright and another unidentified man had pulled up next to Bolin in traffic and fired a shot into his driver’s side window. Bolin found and kept the bullet and had his window replaced, according to his brother.

    A relative of Bolin told the Daily News that Bolin got involved in drugs after his divorce in 1994 and had been using meth with Wright. An initial report from detectives says Bolin had borrowed $900 from Wright to buy crack but does indicate who provided that information.

    Wright’s ex-girlfriend told investigators that Wright pretended to like Bolin but would frequently complain about him. She said she had watched the two men carting around computers in cardboard boxes and believed they may have been stolen.

    Two years after Bolin disappeared, investigators met with a woman who said a friend of Wright’s stopped by her home in July 1996 to borrow a shovel. The man told her that he, Wright and two other men had “killed a preacher” and need to bury the body. He told the woman that Bolin knew Wright and the others were stealing computers and was going to tell on them.

    The woman told detectives she did not have a shovel. She refused to fill out any written statements.

    Another possible break in the case came in 2001, when an Illinois inmate being held in a stabbing case admitted to killing about a dozen people, including Bolin. Corey Fox was charged with Bolin’s murder but the charges were dropped about eight months later. Fox later recanted, and prosecutors said they believed he was seeking to derail his trial for the stabbing.

    Detectives continued to get tips from people who believed Wright was responsible for Bolin’s death. Last year, a caller told investigators Bolin and Wright worked together at a computer business and had a falling out when Bolin discovered money missing. The man said Wright’s ex-girlfriend’s father had told him that Wright and another man had used a wood chipper to crush Bolin’s bones, scattering them around Wright’s home in Hillsboro. Since they were unable to put his skull through the machine, they instead crushed it with a hammer, throwing the pieces alongside the highway “from Missouri to Kentucky,” according to the caller.

    It’s unclear from reports if detectives have searched Wright’s property for human remains. Investigators said they met with Wright earlier this month in the jail where he is being held on the Sievers case until he can be extradited to Florida. Lt. Doc Coombs said he wanted Wright to know he was still investigating Bolin’s disappearance and invited him to share any information he may have.

    A suspect in this case is also linked to the murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers...


    The arrest comes after Sievers' childhood friend, Curtis "Wayne" Wright Jr., 47, pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge in connection with the killing.

    Wright remains a person of interest in the 1996 missing persons case of Ronnie Bolin.

    Bolin's brother, Greg, who has known Wright since elementary school, said the 25 years in Wright's plea deal is not enough for a man he described as "the most evil of those three" men arrested in the case.

    For Missouri man with missing brother, Teresa Sievers murder trial is of extra significance

    Greg Bolin hasn’t seen his brother in 23 years.

    Last month, he watched from about 1,100 miles away in Missouri as a man he believes to be involved in his brother’s disappearance admitted he helped kill a Bonita Springs woman in 2015.

    Curtis Wayne Wright Jr. testified on behalf of the prosecution in the trial for Jimmy Rodgers as part of a plea deal.

    Wright, Rodgers and the victim’s husband, Mark Sievers, were accused in the bludgeoning death of doctor Teresa Sievers.

    Wright may have been the last person to see Ronnie Bolin before he was last seen in July 1996, according to documents from Missouri investigators.

    Ronnie Bolin was a 33-year-old former minister and lived in Hillsboro, Missouri, when he disappeared. Wright and Bolin were friends.

    His white 1988 Subaru was found at a St. Louis car wash with the driver’s door open and the keys inside on July 9, 1996, according to the Jefferson county Sheriff’s Office in Missouri. His body was never found.

    Greg Bolin, 51, watched live streams of the Rodgers trial and was particularly interested in Wright’s testimony.

    “I always thought he was involved, but all of this convinced me that he was completely involved,” Greg Bolin said of his brother’s disappearance.

    At the time, law enforcement in Missouri described Wright as an active person of interest in the Ronnie Bolin case.

    The investigator, Eugene “Doc” Coombs, is no longer with the sheriff’s office. Bissell said he does not have any information on new developments in the Ronnie Bolin case.

    “It’s in cold case status and isn’t actively being investigated at this time,” Bissell said via email. “However, it is not officially closed. Should anything new arise, it would certainly be added to the case file and investigated.”
