Real Name: Eugene C. Kvet (some references spell it Kvett)
Location: Newburgh Heights, Ohio
Date: February 1, 1982
Details: In January 1982, thirteen-year-old Eugene Kvet vanished from Newburgh Heights, Ohio. On February 1, his body was found in a ravine on Harvard Street. Some believe his death may be connected to that of an acquaintance of his, seventeen-year-old Kurt Sova. The two lived one block from each other. There are several similarities between the two cases. They were both found in ravines, just 2.5 miles from each other; both were missing for an amount of time before their bodies was found; and when they were found, both of their right shoes were missing. An autopsy showed that Eugene died from falling into a ravine, but whether he fell in accidentally, or was pushed or thrown in is unknown.
Suspects: None known
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the November 23, 1988 episode.
