Circumstances of Disappearance
Fagot disappeared from her apartment in Lancaster, California on March 2, 1989 with her son, Daniel Stephen Spangle, then age one. Police discovered that the front door to Fagot's residence was open and the sliding glass door inside the apartment appeared to have been forced open. It is suspected that unknown individual(s) broke into the apartment; it is unclear what happened to Fagot and her child. No items of clothing had been removed from the home, suggesting that Fagot had not planned to leave. Fagot also paid all of her utility bills for the month and never mentioned any thoughts of traveling.
