Circumstances of Disappearance
Fetzer was last seen on November 26, 1991 in Medina, Ohio. Her husband reported her missing after discovering a note from her that said she was restless and heading out to a local mall to look around. She never returned.

Police discovered her locked 1985 Ford Tempo about 20 miles from her Medina home the day after she was reported missing. It was along a deserted railroad line off state Route 83, just south of Lodi, near the Wayne County line.

In November of 2003, Christopher Below, a coworker of Fetzer, confessed to shooting Fetzer in his apartment in Medina. Kathern's body has never been recovered although Below stated he thought the body was in a landfill somewhere.
Below is serving an 11- to 18-year sentence at the Ohio state prison for attempted involuntary manslaughter in the disappearance of Kathern Fetzer.
Below is also being looked at as a suspect in the 1995 disappearance of 23 year old Heather Danyelle Teague in Spottsville, Kentucky.
