Lee Sterling Cutler
This episode, Lee Sterling Cutler went missing after attending a friend's birthday party on October 20, 2007. Once family realized he was missing, a search started for Lee. Police found that Lee had taken a mug out of his bedroom, which was believed to hold between $500-$800. They also learned that a surveillance camera spotted Lee at a gas station not long before the search started for Lee. Two days after Lee went missing, a sheriff in Baraboo, Wisconsin, found Lee's abandoned car near a river. Police searched the car and found clothes, a backpack and blankets. They also found a receipt from a state park, and a copy of the book Into the Wild.
A cryptic note to Lee's mother was also found at the scene, which read, “My head is too big for my body, finally I’ll get to sleep. I’m sorry mom for being a coward, I love you mom, please be happy.”
An empty bottle of Advil PM, along with a bottle of Coricidin (cold and flu medicine) were found near the car. Khaki pants partially submerged in the river were found, and in the pants were Lee's car keys, a wallet with an ID, and cash.
Lee's body has not been found, and there are no obvious signs of foul play. Throughout the episode, family and friends mentioned Lee wanting to take a journey to try and find himself. I would believe that this is what happened. It was also mentioned that Lee had shown interest in joining the Israeli army. This could be another viable outcome.
Someone in the episode had mentioned a possible sighting of Lee in the southwest United States, possibly seen in a homeless shelter.
Lee Sterling Cutler is still missing as of today.
