Episode Forty-Nine: Brian Shaffer
On the night of March 31 2006, Brian Shaffer went out with friends to celebrate the beginning of Spring Break. Later he was separated from them and they assumed he went home. However, a security camera near the entrance to a bar recorded him briefly talking to two women just before 2am and then apparently re-entering the bar.
Brian's disappearance has been particularly puzzling to investigators since there was no other publicly accessible entrance to the bar at that time.
Was Brian murdered? Was this the work of the Smiley Face killer? Did Brian disappear on his own violation?
