Circumstances of Disappearance
On Easter Sunday, April 3, 1994, Heidi Allen was working alone as a cashier at the D&W Convenience Store, located at the intersection of State Routes 104 and 104B in New Haven, NY. She opened the store at about 05:45 and managed the store routinely for approximately 2 hours, with nothing out of the ordinary occurring.
About 07:50, an Oswego County Sheriff?s Department patrol unit was flagged down in the area by a citizen who reported that the convenience store was open, with lights and gas pumps on, but no one tending the business. Allen had apparently vanished from the store. Allen's keys were still on the store counter and her maroon station wagon was parked outside when police arrived.

There was no sign of a scuffle, money was still in the cash register and customers had left $9.50 on the counter for newspapers and gas.
Allen, who friends and family describe as smart, strong and ambitious, worked at D&W Convenience store for about 2 1/2 years. Several employers across Oswego County received her resume in the days after she vanished because she was about to graduate from Onondaga Community College and was looking for a full-time job.

In May, 1994, Richard Thibodeau was arrested and charged with kidnapping, 1st degree in connection with the missing person case. In August of that same year, Gary Thibodeau, Richard?s brother, was also arrested and faced the same charge.

In June, 1995, Gary was convicted of kidnapping, 1st degree. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in the New York State correctional system. Richard was found not guilty in September, 1995.
