On November 9, 2002, Josh played poker in a dorm room at a party for a friend. Josh should have only taken three minutes to walk home from the party when he left at 11:45 p.m. But he never made it home, and no one has seen him since. When he went missing, his credit cards had not been used in any way. And when he left, he didn’t have his glasses or car keys.
When Josh didn’t show up to a pre-law society meeting the next day, his friends told security that he was missing. The police used sniffer dogs to lead the search. People looked everywhere on campus for where Josh had hidden.
There are many ideas about what happened to Josh Guimond. One says that he drowned by accident in the school’s Stumpf Lake and died there. But, despite many searches, no one has been able to find his body in the lake.
Several other young college men may have been taken during the months that Josh was missing. In an interview with MPR News, Josh Newville, who hosts a podcast, said that his family gave him permission to look into what happened to him. Newville says he found out that a number of male college students were followed and attacked around the same time Josh went missing.
After looking at what was on Josh’s Yahoo account, police were able to figure out that he had talked to men on dating forums and chatrooms. There was also talk that he had set up a meeting in person with at least one of the men.
Between 11:52 PM and 12:32 AM, music was playing on the computer of missing teenager Josh Newville. Several songs were skipped, which showed that the music was being played by hand.
