Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Laurie Depies, of Appleton, left her job at the Graffiti Store in Fox River Mall. Depies had planned to meet her boyfriend at his apartment at 310 West Wilson Avenue, where he was waiting with his sister and a friend of Depies. About 22:15, the boyfriend heard her car's loud muffler and a door slam when she arrived home, but Depies never made it into the apartment.

When Depies did not show up at the apartment, they saw her empty vehicle and began looking for her. Eventually, they called the Town of Menasha Police Department.
Her gray 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit was located less than 40 feet from the apartment in Menasha, Wisconsin. The car was locked. A soft drink cup was found on the hood on Depies' car, but there were no other signs of her at the scene. There was no evidence in the parking lot that Depies was taken forcibly.

At the time, Laurie liked Stephen King novels and was interested in Eastern religion and fashion.
Many of Depiesí friends, including her boyfriend, took lie detector tests and passed as police tried to sort out possible angles and suspects.
Foul play is possible.
