    "They scavenged through the trash cans that lined Pearl Alley,"

    FWIW, that alley backs up to a nightclub, the Newport which Ed also mentions during the Columbus 5/6/2010 bootleg as a club they played at during their early years. So yeah, Pearl Jam members walked down Pearl Alley.

    Oh, to have a time machine and for them to take a picture beneath the street sign that says Pearl Alley on it...and at the time they played, there *may* have been a Pearl and 10th Avenue...what's there now? The development which includes Ugly Tuna.

    So was foul play involved or did this guy just go Chris McCandles on everybody that knew him?

    That's the question to which nobody knows the answer. This is a local story for me and I hope one day there are answers, but at this point it seems unlikely.

    Who had his phone if it rang? How did they accuire the phone? Use the RFID to to activate the GPS on the phone. I suspect foul play was invoved.

    So his former roommate who was with him that night refused to take a polygraph??? Your buddy disappears into thin air on a night you're with him and you refuse to take a polygraph??? And then his phone rings and pings a tower 6 months later???

    its in the stories in the links above. crazy stuff

  • Not sure if anyone follows the podcast, "Up and Vanished," about Tara Grinstead, a young teacher who went missing in Georgia approximately the same time as Brian Schaffer. Anyways, just this week after never finding a body nor having a single arrest in over a decade, the state police announced they have a suspect in custody and they know what happened. While I hope for a better resolution for Brian, it's still good to know cases like this do sometimes get resolved.

    Sometimes the authorities know more than they reveal.

    "However, footage from cameras at three other nearby bars showed no trace of Brian"
    I'm not sure on what planet this makes sense, or even begins to.


    And yeah, pulling from my memory on the situation, the phone ring was blamed on a "technology glitch" or something similar. Brian's friend refused to take it, but the wiki I linked to also mentions a bit of that.

    11 years with no answers.

    Thanks to Kat and Sea (and others?) for keeping the thread stuck to the top.
    Thanks to all the fans for the thoughts and comments and keeping open eyes.
    Finally, a huge, huge thanks to the band for Cincinnati 2006 and Columbus 2010. When other things certainly could have happened, words were said about Brian and songs (Wishlist with a "Love Is Stronger Than Witchcraft" tag in Cincinnati and a hugely emotional Come Back in Columbus) were played.

    didn't see this video posted but looks like his girlfriend at the time has moved on. She's married and has kids.

    This whole thing has been a wide range of emotions. Maddening, confusing, sad, frustrating, etc.

    ...and all because, all those years ago, I was walking to class and saw the stickman logo (his tattoo) on a poster and thought it was a tribute band promo flyer. That's what caused me to do a double-take. I had heard the various news announcements, but thought nothing of it until that stickman caught my eye.

    That people go missing and are never found to me is proof that there is no God. For parents to have a child disappear and leave them wondering for the rest of their lives what happened is the worst fate I can imagine. Same goes for loved ones, friends, spouses and siblings. The universe is a cold place.

    That happened twenty miles from my house. Local media went into a frenzy when the arrest was made. Apparently someone ratted finally after all these years.
