Circumstances of Disappearance
Susan DeQuina was last seen on October 3, 1979, leaving her home in Lynn. Susan DeQuina was a 22-year-old mother of two living in an apartment her father owned. Susan disappeared on a night when she called a babysitter to watch her kids so that she and her boyfriend could buy a refrigerator.

Susan's boyfriend, Michele Gagnon, was a member of the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang. Gagnon lived part of the time with Susan, and part of the time with his best friend, Robert Garbino. Susan was last known to be with Michele Gagnon.

Weeks after Susan disappeared, Gagnon's friend, Robert Garbino was shot to death and dismembered. Michele Gagnon eventually surfaced weeks after the Garbino murder, in a woman's apartment in Bridgeport, CT. Michele Gagnon was found shot to death in the woman's bedroom. All happened over just a few weeks.
