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.

  4. I'm Sorry But Out Of All The Cases I Think This One Should Is A Case Of Suicide. I Think His Body Was In That River And Was Just Somehow Washed Down Much Further Than They Surched. So I Think His Bones Might Be Found One Day In The River But Because He Was Un-Clothed And Decomposition They Would Not Stay Together And Separate And Possibly Wash Out Into A Big Body Of Water Or Ocean.
    Sadly So Many People Go Missing In The US There Are Plenty Of Stories For This Show To Cover So I'm Surprised It Was Cancelled Most Family Members Would Participate And More And More People Disappear Each And Every Year. Besides Now They Are Just Repairing Re-Runs Without Updates. Showing Theirs A Need And Viewers For New Shows And Stories...

    1. Fortunately the ID channel did bring the series back. but in Lee's case it seems like a suicide at least everything together would point that way, but I hope I'm wrong.

    2. I agree. Any remains could've been scattered or dragged away by numerous animals with some being washed away as well. If he read the book, Into The Wild, then he would've know how much pain it caused the family and how cruel it is to do something like that. The boy in the book hated his parents for coddling him too much but Lee was on good terms, so it makes no sense to inflict on his mom so much suffering.

  8. I think he's still alive. Probably changed his appearance, name and everything. I've heard plenty of stories of people picking up, leaving and starting a new life.

  11. He has a family that loves and misses him, that's missed out on ten years of his adult life. His family deserves to know what happened to him.

  12. Why does no one talk of the home environment with a step dad he did not get along with? I sense that things werw not all right at home and the mums guilt speaks tons. She did not take her sons concerns seriously. He wanted to leave inclusing talking to his family about it. I want to believe he was fed up and let down by his mum who it seems paid more attention to her mum and his stepdad...and who a family friend says he was not a nice guy. Lee left. I hope he went to Israel. He will not come back despite his mums plea because he knows nothing has changed at home. That is why he wrote a note to his mum and not his brother or girlfriend. I hope he has a new life that has meaning.

    1. exactly my thing is if he was horrible to those kids why didn't she leave him for the sake of her kids and if she knew he had depression and tried to kill himself why didn't she try with him.

    2. His step dad is dead. Things have changed at home.

  13. I truly hope that Lee is okay and will someday be found. I saw the show "Disappeared" and it broke my heart to see how his poor family was suffering. You never knows what goes on behind closed doors, but you want to see his Mom especially get some type of peace. Lee, if you are alive, contact your mom. She deserves to know where you are and just how you are doing.
