Circumstances of Disappearance

Mr. Ranelli has not been heard from since May 20, 1977. His last contact with family was to tell his sister that he and a friend, Chris Harold Freeman (754DMMN) were leaving to go to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They may have ultimately ended up in Miami, Florida. Geno's sister strongly believes that the two men's disappearances are related.

Geno and Chris met in Arizona, and moved back to Minnesota to run a store together in East St. Paul, which closed in 1977.
