Circumstances of Disappearance
Basile was last seen in Port Orange, Florida on June 10, 1975. Police at first believed she had run away. Despite a community search and public pleas for information, Susan's body was never found.
Serial-killer Gerald Eugene Stano confessed to her abduction and murder in 1982. He picked her up as she exited a school bus on June 10, 1975, in Port Orange. He enticed her with a ride to the Starlite Skate Center on South Nova Road.
Instead, he strangled her and left her body in a patch of woods, covered with palm fronds. Her body was never found and the site has since been built over. Stano was never charged with the crime.
