    • ClassificationEndangered Missing
    • Date of Birth04/12/1958 (60)
    • Age35 years old
    • Height and Weight6'0 - 6'2, 200 - 215 pounds
    • Distinguishing CharacteristicsCaucasian male. Dark blond hair, blue eyes. Dudley may have a mustache, beard or a goatee. He wears eyeglasses and he has a tattoo on his right arm of a cougar on a log. His nickname is Bill.

    Details of Disappearance
    Dudley resided in a trailer on Martinsburg Pike in Winchester, Virginia in 1993. The property was owned by his girlfriend Cindy Benner's grandmother, who resided in the main house with Cindy and Dudley's daughter.

    Cindy said that he called her at approximately 9:30 p.m. on October 31, 1993. Dudley had been drinking alcohol and was easily angered when intoxicated. She asked him not to walk down to the house, but he ignored her request and arrived at her door shortly afterwards.

    Dudley reassured Cindy that he was calm before she opened the door for him. He became angry after she allowed him inside the home and he hit her in the face, fracturing her nose. Cindy's grandmother woke up after the incident, as did their daughter.

    Roger Benner Jr., one of Cindy's relatives, and his friend Glen Kerns resided in a mobile home on the property and overheard the disturbance. They arrived at the house several minutes later to break up the altercation. The men had been drinking with Dudley earlier in the day.

    Roger and Kerns fought with Dudley outside of the house and Kerns hit Dudley with a baseball bat. The two men left the area shortly afterwards. Dudley calmed down after the incident and apologized to Cindy.

    He attempted to wipe the blood off of her face as her mother drove up to the residence. Dudley and Cindy's mother did not get along and he stumbled back to his trailer. He has never been heard from again.

    Dudley left the area for short periods of time in the past. He always contacted his mother shortly afterwards.

    Cindy checked his trailer several days after Halloween and noticed that his wallet, keys and additional belongings were placed on his table. She became concerned and called Dudley's mother, who believed that he would return home after he calmed down from the previous argument.

    Dudley's mother became concerned for her son's welfare after he failed to contact her for two weeks. She and Cindy visited several bars along northbound US Route 11 from the Virginia state line to Martinsburg, West Virginia and placed posters in the area. His mother reported him as a missing person on December 5.

    Investigators interviewed Cindy, Roger and Kerns regarding the disturbance on Halloween night. Kerns admitted that he hit Dudley with a bat, but both he and Roger claimed they never saw him afterwards. Their stories were consistent with Cindy's statements.

    Investigators believe that Dudley met with foul play on the night of his disappearance. There are suspects in his case, but there have not been any arrests due to a lack of evidence. Dudley's loved ones said that he had an alcohol problem in the early 1990s, but he is described as a kind person and good worker when sober.

    Dudley was born in Alexandria, Virginia. His family relocated to Woodbridge, Virginia sometime afterwards. He resided in Spartanburg, South Carolina with his late father and stepmother in 1976. Dudley married in 1979 and had three children with his wife. They separated in 1985 and he began dating Cindy.

    Dudley and his wife divorced in the early 1990s and remained friends. He was employed as an automobile body repairman at a Clearbrook used car business in 1993. His remains have never been located and his case is unsolved.

    Human Remains Found May Match Winchester Man's Cold Case

    Posted: Jan 17, 2012 06:36 PM EST

    Updated: Jan 24, 2012 01:05 PM EST

    The Frederick County Sheriff's Office is looking into new information in the 18-year old cold case of William Dudley. The Chief Medical Examiners Office contacted Investigator K.C. Bohrer of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office notifying him that human remains, found in Pittsylvania, Virginiamay be a match to Dudley.

    Reports say Dudley was last seen on Halloween night in 1993. Police say he was intoxicated when he went to his girlfriend's trailer home. An argument ensued and two men came to defend the woman, beating Dudley with a baseball bat. The men told police that Dudley got up and left the scene on foot. But, Dudley's mother and four children believe there is more to the story.

    "I just get frustrated because I know that there are people out there that know and are scared to speak about it. If they've heard things, just call and say this is what you've heard. That's all I ask," says Crystal Albert, Dudley's daughter.

    Albert and her grandmother, Katherine Trenary, say they believe Dudley was murdered that Halloween night, and they hope the truth will soon be told.

    "We just want closure. We want to know what happened," says Trenary.

    The Frederick County Sheriff's Office is working to input older local cases into the national missing person's database, to better identify all remains found nationwide. They ask anyone with information to contact Investigator K.C. Bohrer at The Frederick County Sheriff's Office: 540-504-6509/540-655-TIPS.

    Family fears murder in unsolved 1993 case
    • By EVAN GOODENOW | The Winchester Star
    • Nov 1, 2017

    CLEAR BROOK — The family of William Dudley, last seen on Oct. 31, 1993, believe he was murdered, but lack evidence.

    “With no body and no confession of anyone that’s seen anything, we can’t prove it,” Dudley’s daughter Crystal Albert said. “I’m not saying that we’ve lost hope, but we kind of have the feeling that we’ll never know. That’s the hard thing.”

    A vigil will be held Sunday for Dudley by the Pine Knoll Construction Co., one of the last places he was seen. Dudley, a 35-year-old auto mechanic, house painter and father of four, disappeared after an alcohol-fueled fight with Cindy Benner, his girlfriend, The Star reported in 1994.


    Dudley, who had been drinking, assaulted Cindy Benner in her home, Albert said. She said Benner’s half-brother and his friend, who lived in a nearby mobile home, intervened. The three men fought outside Cindy Benner’s home and they told the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office that Dudley was struck with a baseball bat across the shoulders and head.

    Albert, then 14, said she was staying at Benner’s mother’s home with Benner’s sister that night. She said she remembers Benner’s half-brother coming to the house and having a bloody nose. “I guess my dad hit him,” Albert said.

    Benner and the two men said they last saw Dudley walking along Martinsburg Pike (U.S. 11), Frederick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Aleck Beeman said Monday. Dudley’s car, clothes and wallet remained in his mobile home located near Benner’s home. Beeman said investigators questioned the men several times and they denied involvement in Dudley’s disappearance.

    Kathy and Roger Trenary, Dudley’s parents, didn’t report him missing until Dec. 5, 1993, Albert said. Kathy Trenary told The Star in 1994 that Benner didn’t alert her that Dudley was missing until early November. Partially due to his alcoholism, Trenary said her son often disappeared for short stretches, but always called to let her know he was all right.

    The Trenarys searched area bars he frequented as well as a former quarry behind Clearbrook Park before notifying police. Police initially thought Dudley might have just chosen to leave the area, but Kathy Trenary said in 1994 that her son would never have abandoned his children.

    “It just doesn’t make sense,” said Trenary, now 76, “Why would he leave like that in the middle of the night and never come back for his clothes or his wallet or anything?”

    Beeman said the case remains open and investigators occasionally get leads. In 2010, police dogs trained to sniff for cadavers searched unsuccessfully in Hampshire County W.Va., for Dudley’s remains. In 2012, DNA testing showed bones found in Pittsylvania County weren’t Dudley’s.


    “It’s still an active case,” Beeman said. “Unfortunately, it’s an old case.”

    The Dudley case was one of 88,040 open missing person cases at the end of last year, according to the FBI National Crime Information Center Missing Person Files. Albert acknowledges the odds of finding out what happened to Dudley are slim given the multitude of cases, But besides remembering her father, she said his family believes there is a long shot chance news of the vigil might generate leads.

    “We’re just trying to raise the awareness again,” she said. “Maybe it will get people to start talking.”

    Missing person: Va. man disappeared after fight with girlfriend


    By: Emily Babay
    Examiner Staff Writer
    August 31, 2010

    William D. Dudley hasn't been heard from since he went home after being at the center of two violent altercations on a Halloween night. That was in 1993, and Capt. John Heflin of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office said this week that police still are investigating the matter as a missing-person case.

    Authorities said Dudley, 35 was intoxicated when he went to the Winchester home of Cindy Benner, the girlfriend with whom he had a daughter, at about 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, 1993.

    Dudley became violent and broke Benner's nose. The fight woke up their daughter and Benner's grandmother, who also lived at the home.

    One of Benner's relatives and a friend heard the disturbance and went to the house.

    The two men had been drinking with Dudley earlier in the day, authorities say, and fought with him outside Benner's residence.

    One of them hit Dudley with a baseball bat, and the two left the area.

    Dudley reportedly apologized to Benner that night. He left, and was believed to be returning to his trailer, which was located on Benner's property.

    He has not been seen since then.

    Heflin said investigators continue to look at what role the fights might have played in Dudley's disappearance.

    Dudley's wallet and keys were found in his trailer.

    He was reported missing by his mother on Dec. 5, 1993.

    Dudley would now be 52 years old. At the time of his disappearance, he was described as a white man, 6 feet 2 inches tall and 215 pounds. He had dark blond hair and blue eyes.

    Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Frederick County Sheriff's Office investigations unit at 540-667-0420. Tipsters can also call Crime Solvers at 540-665-TIPS (8477).

    Kim C. "KC" Bohrer for Morgan County WV Sheriff

    Kim C. "KC" Bohrer for Morgan County WV Sheriff
    April 23, 2016 ·
    WINCHESTER — It can only be described as a gruesome discovery.
    A hunter walking in the woods near the interchange of interstates 66 and 81 on a brisk Thanksgiving morning in 2003 stumbled across a woman’s torso.
    Except for a cesarean section scar and a mole on the woman’s abdomen, Frederick County investigators say her remains offered no identifying marks.
    The state Medical Examiner’s Office later determined that the vertical C-section scar indicated the procedure was likely performed abroad. Further testing traced her ancestry to eastern Asia and narrowed her age to between 35 and 45 years old.
    Nearly 13 years later, she has still not been identified, but she hasn’t been forgotten.
    Investigators working to solve Frederick County’s handful of “cold cases” say they are motivated by one thing: a passion for victims.
    “That’s the big thing with these types of cases,” said K.C. Bohrer, an investigator with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office. “You’ve got to keep them alive through your investigative efforts or contacts with the families and the media. You’re just hoping for that one call, you’re looking for that one break, or you’re looking for that one person who knows something.”
    Bohrer said he often pores over each page in his case files, always asking himself the question: “Is there anything I missed?”
    During a recent interview with The Star, Bohrer opened five of those case files to share the latest developments.
    William Dudley
    The investigation into the 1993 disappearance of William David Dudley, Bohrer said, is one of his most frustrating because he believes the case could have been solved years ago.
    “Cold cases sometimes derive from poor police work or poor information,” he said.
    Dudley, 35, disappeared Oct. 31, 1993, following a fight with two men at a Clear Brook trailer park. The fight had broken out after an argument between Dudley and his girlfriend, and the men had intervened. One admitted hitting Dudley with a baseball bat, but claimed Dudley walked off, never to be seen again.
    Dudley, reportedly a heavy drinker, had a history of disappearing, and was not reported missing until more than a month after the altercation, when his mother called authorities, Bohrer said.
    Dudley’s daughter, Crystal Dudley-Albert, said during a recent interview that her grandmother felt the case was mishandled from that moment.

    “They treated it like a missing person case, or they said he just ran off,” Dudley-Albert said. “They have two guys who admitted they fought with my dad the night he disappeared, and one admitted they hit him with a bat. Why can’t they re-question them? Why were they never charged with anything?”
    Dudley-Albert, who was 14 at the time of her father’s disappearance, said she heard one of the men who fought with him make an incriminating statement.
    “He came to the house where I was and said he needed to call his dad because the only way to get rid of Dudley was to kill him,” she said. “I heard that and told the police that.”
    Bohrer said that although he believes the two men could shed light on the case, they have refused to talk since their initial statements and have hired lawyers.
    An inmate in a southern Virginia prison reached out to Bohrer several years ago claiming to have information in the case. But that turned out to be a false lead.
    Dudley-Albert said her family is frustrated with the lack of new information in the investigation, and Bohrer empathizes with them.
    “I understand their frustration and I share it with them,” he said. “And I want nothing more than to find closure for them.”
    Although he’s been missing for more than two decades, Dudley-Albert said her father is not forgotten. Each year on his birthday and the anniversary of his disappearance, Dudley’s mother places a notice in The Winchester Star.
    “We just want someone to care,” Dudley-Albert said. “Our family has been through so much, and we just want to know where his body is to give him the proper burial that he deserves.”

    Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call Investigator K.C. Bohrer at 540-504-6509 or email him at kbohrer@fcva.us. Calls about the cases also can be made to the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office at 540-662-6162 or the Crime Solvers Hotline at 540-665-8477.

    Affidavit: Stephens City man went missing after being assaulted with baseball bat in 1993
    By Candace Sipos — csipos@nvdaily.com

    STEPHENSON — County officials are investigating whether remains found in Pittsylvania County on Jan. 5 might be those of a Stephens City man who went missing after being assaulted with a baseball bat on Oct. 30, 1993.

    William David Dudley went missing from his girlfriend’s mobile home in Stephenson on that date, when he was 35. After years of investigation, Dudley was never found and was declared “legally dead” upon the family’s request, according to an affidavit filed with a search warrant Wednesday to obtain medical records from Winchester Medical Center.

    Investigator K.C. Bohrer of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division received a call on Jan. 5 from Paul Yokum with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner informing him of the skeletal remains found more than 200 miles away, according to the affidavit.

    The office has requested all of Dudley’s dental and medical records, including X-ray results, and any buccal swabs from known family members to determine whether the DNA matches that of the remains.

    Dudley was at his girlfriend’s mobile home on Oct. 30, 1993, intoxicated, when he became involved in a domestic disturbance with her, the affidavit reads. Two men who lived nearby overheard the fight and came to help Dudley’s girlfriend, who was related to one of the men.

    An altercation started among the men and Dudley was hit by a baseball bat by one of the other two men, according to the document. It does not name either of the men or Dudley’s girlfriend.

    The investigation opened after tahe incident under the direction of investigator Greg Lambert, who continued the search for answers until he retired from the county Sheriff’s Office.

    “Many leads, theories, tips etc were investigated, but William Dudley has never been found,” the affidavit reads.

    Authorities interviewed the two men directly following the incident, but they later refused to talk, obtained lawyers and would not submit to polygraph tests about Dudley’s disappearance.

    “Many years later,” Dudley’s family requested that he be legally declared dead, but Bohrer began investigating the incident in 2010 as a cold case, after receiving new information about his “disappearance and possible location of his remains,” the document reads.

    The investigation is now open as a missing person/possible homicide case.
