    Details of Disappearance

    Garman was last seen at a party in the Mark Twain National Forest off H Highway near Chadwick, Missouri on September 24, 1996. He and a female acquaintance from Arkansas had joined the binge party, which lasted several days. Garman left the party with his female friend. Two days later, after the pair were reported missing, horseback riders found the woman in the forest. She was naked, badly bruised and disoriented. She said she had been sexually assaulted and Garman had been shot in the face. He has never been heard from again. Foul play is suspected in his case due to the circumstances involved.
