cases info

Brian Shaffer (born February 25, 1979)[1] was a medical student at Ohio State University. On the night of March 31, 2006, Shaffer went out with friends to celebrate the beginning of spring break; later he was separated from them and they assumed he had gone home. However, a security camera near the entrance to a bar recorded him briefly talking to two women just before 2 a.m., April 1, and then apparently re-entering the bar. Shaffer has not been seen or heard from since. The case has received national media attention.[2]

Shaffer's disappearance has been especially puzzling to investigators since there was no other publicly accessible entrance to the bar at that time. Columbus police have several theories about what happened;[3] some interest and suspicion have been directed at a friend of Shaffer's who accompanied him that night but who has refused to take lie detector tests regarding the incident.[4] While foul play has been suspected, including the possible involvement of the purported Smiley Face serial killer,[5] it has also been speculated that he might be alive and living somewhere else under a new identity.[6]

Shaffer grew up in Pickerington, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus where Ohio State University (OSU) is located. He is the older of Randy and Renee Shaffer's two sons. He graduated from the local high school in 1997 and went to OSU for his undergraduate work. Six years later he graduated with a degree in microbiology.[1]

Following that, he began studies at Ohio State University College of Medicine in 2004. During his second year there, in March 2006, his mother Renee died of myelodysplasia.[7] His friends say that although he appeared to be handling it well, her death was hard for him.[5]
Renee was not the only woman important in Brian's life. He had become romantically involved with a fellow second-year medical student, Alexis Waggoner. She, along with their families and friends, believed that Brian would probably be proposing marriage to her later that year, most likely on a trip to Miami the couple had planned for spring break at the beginning of April.[5] Tropical locations such as Miami were attractive to Brian; he liked the relaxed lifestyles. He told his friends that despite his decision to pursue a medical career, his real ambition was to start a band playing music in the vein of Jimmy Buffett.[7]

On March 31, a Friday, classes at OSU ended for spring break the next week. Brian and Randy Shaffer, his father, celebrated the occasion by going out for a steak dinner together earlier that evening. Randy noted that his son seemed exhausted from having pulled all-nighters earlier in the week cramming for some important upcoming exams. He did not think Brian should go out with a friend, William "Clint" Florence, later that night as he planned to do, but did not express his reservations to his son.[5]
At 9 p.m., Brian met Florence at the Ugly Tuna Saloona, a bar in the South Campus Gateway complex on High Street. An hour later, Brian called Waggoner. She had returned to her home in Toledo to visit with her family before she and Brian were due to depart for Miami. He and Florence went bar-hopping, visiting several other drinking establishments and working their way down to the Arena District. At each stop the two had one shot each of hard liquor, according to Florence.[5]

South Campus Gateway in 2015. The Ugly Tuna was located in the upper story of the building on the right.
After midnight, the two met Meredith Reed, a friend of Florence, in The Short North. She gave them a ride back to the Ugly Tuna Saloona, where they had started the night, and joined them there for the last round.[5] While the three were there, Brian separated from his companions. Florence and Reed had been trying to find him, repeatedly calling him. They left with other patrons when the bar closed at 2 a.m., waiting outside for Brian. When he was not among the departing crowd, they assumed he had gone back to his apartment without letting them know.[3]
Waggoner and Randy Shaffer both tried to call Brian later that weekend, but he did not answer. On Monday morning, he missed the flight to Miami he and Waggoner had scheduled long before. He was then reported missing to the Columbus police.[5]

Police began their search for Brian at the Ugly Tuna, the bar where he had last been seen. Since the area around South Campus Gateway was somewhat blighted with a high crime rate, the bar had installed security cameras. They reviewed the footage, which showed Brian, Florence, and Reed going up an escalator to the bar's main entrance at 1:15 a.m. Brian was seen outside of the bar around 1:55 a.m., talking briefly with two young women and saying goodbye, then moving off-camera in the direction of the bar, apparently to re-enter. The camera did not record him leaving shortly afterward when the Ugly Tuna closed; that was the last time he was seen.[5]
It was possible, investigators realized, that he could have changed his clothes in the bar or put on a hat and kept his head down, hiding his face from the camera. The cameras might also have missed him—one panned across the area constantly, and the other was operated manually. He might have also left the building by another route. However, the building's only other exit, a service door not generally used by the public, opened at the time onto a construction site that officers believed would have been difficult to walk through while sober, much less intoxicated, as Brian likely was at the time.[5]
Since Columbus has the most security cameras of any city in Ohio, more than Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Toledo combined, officers next looked to the footage from other bars to see if cameras there could explain how Brian had left the Ugly Tuna. However, footage from cameras at three other nearby bars showed no trace of Brian.[7]
The search began to fan out from the Ugly Tuna, with officers, sometimes accompanied by police dogs, looking closely in the street, inspecting dumpsters and other waste containers, and asking residents if they had seen him. Flyers of Brian's picture, showing a tattoo on his upper right arm of a stick figure logo from the cover artwork for the single of "Alive"[7] by Pearl Jam, one of his favorite bands, and noting a distinctive fleck in one of his irises, were posted widely. The police even persuaded the city to let them into the sewer system and search there.[5] No useful information was uncovered. At Brian's apartment on King Avenue six blocks from the Ugly Tuna, his car was still parked outside. Inside, nothing appeared amiss.[5]
After searching miles away from the bar in every direction, police began to consider other possibilities besides an accident or foul play. Since his mother had recently died, it was speculated he had gone away temporarily to grieve in solitude. Yet, his disappearance proved permanent. No evident reasons appeared for him voluntarily disappearing.[5]
Those who had seen Brian that evening, including his father, were asked to take lie detector tests. Reed and Randy Shaffer passed theirs, as did reportedly all the others, while Florence refused. The two women Brian had last been seen talking to were later identified; they said in 2009 that they had never been asked to take one themselves.[4]
Waggoner called Brian's phone every evening before going to bed for a long time after the disappearance. Usually, it went to voicemail, but one night in September it actually rang three times. "I kept calling it to hear it purely because it was one of the best sounds I have ever heard, even if no one picked up", she wrote on her MySpace page. Cingular, Brian's wireless provider, said what Waggoner heard may have been due to a computer glitch. A ping from the phone was detected at a cell tower in Hilliard, 14 miles (23 km) northwest of Columbus.[7]
The police received many tips, none of which resulted in any breakthroughs in the case. At a Pearl Jam concert later that year in Cincinnati, lead singer Eddie Vedder took time between songs to ask for tips in Brian's disappearance, but none of those were useful either. Possible sightings in Michigan, Texas, and even Sweden were investigated.[5]
Randy Shaffer, who had recently suffered the death of his wife, continued the search for his son on his own. A psychic he consulted told him Brian's body was in the water near a bridge pier. He and Derek, Brian's brother, along with some other citizens who had become interested in the case, bought waders and spent much of their free time along the shores of the Olentangy River, which flows through Columbus adjacent to the OSU campus, searching in vain for the body near bridges.[5]
This possibility also led police to briefly consider the heavily disputed Smiley face murder theory. Brian Shaffer, under this theory, would be the killer's only victim whose body had not yet been found. Columbus police eventually rejected any connection to the alleged killer in Brian's case, following the lead of most law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, that have looked into it.[5]


In September 2008, during a heavy windstorm in Central Ohio, Randy Shaffer was out in the yard of his Baltimore home clearing debris. A branch blew off from a nearby tree and fatally struck him. Neighbors found his body the next morning and called police.[8]
After his obituary ran online, a condolence book was posted. One of the signatures in it said "To Dad, love Brian (U.S. Virgin Islands)". This suggested Brian might have left Columbus for a new life elsewhere.[6] However, upon further investigation, the note was found to have been posted from a computer accessible to the public in Franklin County; it was determined to be a hoax.[5]

Shortly after Randy Shaffer's death, Neil Rosenberg, attorney for Clint Florence, wrote to Don Corbett, a private investigator who has volunteered his time to help the Shaffer family find Brian, regarding his client's ongoing refusal to take a lie detector test. Rosenberg intimated that he had learned that the Columbus police investigating the case believed Brian was alive.[4]
In April 2009, The Lantern, Ohio State's student newspaper, disclosed the exchange. "If Brian is alive, which is what I'm led to believe after speaking with the detective involved, then it is Brian, and not Clint [Florence] who is causing his family pain and hardship," Rosenberg wrote. "Brian should come forward and end this." Florence, he said, did not have anything to hide; he had merely told everything he knew from the beginning and did not see the value of doing so again.[4]
Rosenberg's assertions notwithstanding, many of those who were close to Brian have criticized Florence for not being forthcoming enough. "As soon as the detective started getting involved, that's when he pretty much had no contact with anybody," recalled Derek Shaffer, Brian's brother, and last surviving immediate family member. "I've always thought he definitely knows something–just won't come forward with it." He believes it is still possible that Brian is alive, and Florence knows where he might have gone. "If Brian did take off somewhere, if that is the case, we just always had a strong feeling that Clint would possibly know that," he said. Shaffer's girlfriend at the time, Alexis Waggoner, also thinks that Florence is withholding information. However, she believes that it's likely her former boyfriend is dead and did not runoff. "I can't imagine he would have just done that," she said.[4]
In 2014, the Columbus police said they were still receiving at least two tips a month on the case via the local Crime Stoppers hotline, though none had proven useful. The evidence in the case filled four boxes of files. One of the original investigators, Andre Edwards, told Columbus Monthly that after an extensive review of the camera footage at the Ugly Tuna from the night Brian disappeared, which was intended to rule out the idea that Brian could have left in disguise, he could "say with 100-percent certainty" that Brian did not leave via the escalator. Police say they have three theories about the case but declined to discuss them even generally with the magazine.[3]

Between Brian's disappearance and his own death, Randy Shaffer joined the families of other missing adults in Ohio in lobbying the state legislature to pass a bill establishing a statewide protocol for such cases. At the time Brian disappeared, it was left up to individual departments how to handle the cases, and some parents felt that investigations into their relatives' disappearances had suffered as a result. By the time Randy died, the bill had become law.[5]

Disappearance
On July 8, 2020, Rivera was declared a missing person after her four-year-old son, Josey, was found alone in Rivera's rented boat at Lake Piru. The search for both Rivera and Josey had begun at 4:00 pm PDT, three hours after they left the dock when their rental was over. Another boater discovered Josey alone, asleep on the boat with his life jacket on, at around 5:00 pm. The boat was in the Narrows, an area at the north of the lake that can be quite deep and windy. An adult life jacket was found on board, along with Rivera's identification. Josey is said to have told investigators that his mother was swimming and could not make it back to the boat. He also stated that his mother was not wearing a life jacket. Lake Piru is known locally for strong, unpredictable currents and whirlpools that have caused the deaths of swimmers in the past. Rivera's vehicle, a black Mercedes G Wagon, was found in the parking lot.
The Ventura County Sheriff's Department suspended the search and rescue operation that evening and resumed again the following day. The lake was closed to the public, with dive teams from across the region taking part in the search. On July 9, the sheriff's department confirmed to NBC that Rivera was presumed dead and that rescue efforts would now shift to recovery efforts.[ Their spokesman stated it may be some time before anybody is found, as poor visibility makes it difficult for search and recovery crews to see more than a foot ahead underwater On July 10, the sheriff's office released CCTV footage of Rivera and her son arriving in the parking lot and leaving the dock on the boat.

Elisa Lam Information


In 2013, the last known footage of Elisa Lam came from grainy elevator security camera footage from the Cecil Hotel. The 21-year-old appears frantic and paranoid in the four minutes of footage—pressing multiple buttons, peeking nervously out of the doors, and hiding against the wall of the unmoving elevator from what appears to be an unseen person. The footage has since become infamous, going viral that February after the police first released it to the public, asking for tips in the case of Lam’s disappearance. Scores of internet sleuths jumped on the case of the missing young woman, and theories of paranormal activity, a threatening off-camera figure, and video manipulation quickly began to spread online. It didn’t help that the Canadian tourist, who was last seen on January 31, 2013 during the Los Angeles leg of her West Coast trip, happened to be staying in the notorious Cecil Hotel, a skid row landmark famously shrouded in darkness and crime. The first season of Joe Berlinger’s new Netflix series Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel works to demythologize the Cecil, and in doing so, logically work through and demystify the heartbreaking case of Elisa Lam.
This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their website.

The Cecil Hotel, located in downtown L.A., has a reputation for death. More than a dozen murders and suicides have taken place in and around the Cecil Hotel since its 1927 opening. Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, was said to have been seen at the Cecil days before her murder, and the hotel served as a temporary residence to serial murderers Richard Ramirez and Jack Unterweger at times. Crime Scene largely dispels its reputation as cursed by digging into the problematic socioeconomic history of the area, and the hotel’s part functions as low-income housing.
But Lam hadn’t booked a stay at the Cecil. The Vancouver student, who had long been planning a solo trip up the coast of California, opted to stay at the Stay on Main, a downtown budget hostel, for the Los Angeles leg of her trip. The documentary reveals that the Cecil had converted half of its floors to the Stay on Main at the time of Lam’s trip in an attempt to market itself to travelers while simultaneously maintaining its long-term residences on separate floors. While the two properties had different lobbies and entrances, the Cecil Hotel and Stay on Main had shared elevators. This is, among other reasons, why the elevator video of Lam on the last day she is seen alive was so frightening to so many people online.

The rebranded Cecil Hotel, where Elisa Lam stayed.
Lam was reported missing soon after she failed to check out of her room on February 1, 2013. The docuseries recounts several notable occurrences before she disappeared—the hotel had moved Lam from a shared room to a private one as she had been disturbing her fellow guests. She had been escorted out of a television taping earlier that week because of disruptive behavior, and the hotel’s manager at the time, Amy Price, describes an outburst that Lam had in the hotel lobby, as well. When it was discovered that all of Lam’s belongings—including her I.D., medication, and luggage—were left behind in her hotel room, search parties of police and dogs combed the streets downtown and the halls of the hotel. But they discovered nothing. And so, with no leads, they chose to release the four minutes of jarring elevator footage of Lam to the public on February 14, causing a frenzy online and in the media.
On February 19, 2013, twenty days after Lam was last seen, a hotel staffer was sent up to the roof of the hotel to check on the water tanks after several guest complaints about low pressure and murky water coming out of the taps. It was then when Lam’s body was discovered, floating naked in one of the four large tanks that provided the hotel’s water supply.

The case was closed in June of 2013, and Lam’s cause of death was listed as accidental due to drowning, with bipolar disorder listed as a significant factor. According to the coroner featured in the docuseries, her autopsy revealed that she had not been taking the full dosage of her medication around the time of her death. But the startling behavior of Lam in the elevator and the enduring mystery of how she got up onto the locked roof and into the tank in the first place kept a community of YouTubers, Redditors, and internet sleuths suspicious about the circumstances and hunting for clues. As Crime Scene depicts, inexplicable coincidences and strange oddities in the case—such as the uncanny similarity to the plot of 2005 horror film Dark Water or a government-administered tuberculosis test in the area at the time entitled “Lam-Elisa”—kept conspiracy theorists active online for years following Lam’s death.
The documentary works through the case with new interview footage from investigators, web sleuths, and historians, narrated in part by excerpts read from Lam’s Tumblr, Nouvelle-Nouveau, which she used as an online diary of sorts, and with graphic recreations of the crime scene. It conveys the degree to which Lam’s tragic case became a paranormal myth in pop culture and online. And although the recreations in Berlinger’s documentary can feel morbid and unsympathetic at times, the through-line of the four-part series is a rational analysis of the socioeconomic circumstances and facts in the case.
The documentary does its best to fact check a number of the most prominent conspiracy theories about the Lam case. For example, one theory claimed that the vocalist of a German metal band killed Lam, however, Crime Scene notes that the musician was in Mexico at the time of the death.
Without necessarily presenting new evidence, the documentary largely de-shrouds the mystery surrounding the case by featuring the firsthand testimony of the coroner, investigators, and staff from the Cecil Hotel who had previously not spoken publicly on the matter. By the end of the four episodes, although the mystery of how Lam ended up in the water tank remains, the case is understood to be a tragedy related to a young woman's mental health and not a paranormal horror story. Crime Scene works to logically and painstakingly explain away the internet’s largest points of contention with the investigation, and thus lends a sense of closure and finality to the case.
