Details of Disappearance

Standifer was last seen at approximately 6:00 p.m. on September 23, 1994 in the vicinity of 65th and College near the Broad Ripple area of Indianapolis, Indiana.

He was shooting pool at a local bar, the Stone Mug Cafe, that night, when he got into an altercation in the parking lot. He left the bar on foot, possibly en route to his apartment one mile to the south.

He was supposed to get a ride from the bar to attend his brother's birthday party, but he never arrived there and has never been heard from again.

Standifer's life was "erratic" at the time of his disappearance and he had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, so his family was initially unconcerned by his absence. As time passed without their hearing from him, however, they began to worry. They now believe he's deceased.

Standifer left behind four children. Some of his relatives believe one or both of his two sons may know what happened to him. Both of them were incarcerated after his disappearance, one for murder and one for robbery. His case remains unsolved.
