    Details of Disappearance

    Tsolakis was last seen at the Greek American Sports Club in the 600 block of Maple Street in Marlborough, Connecticut on February 23, 1992. At 11:30 p.m. he called his wife to say he was on his way home. He never arrived and none of his family members ever heard from him again. On March 20, nearly a month later, his red Fiat was found at the Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut, covered in snow. An employee at the casino claimed Tsolakis had been issued a complimentary buffet ticket at the casino on March 16. The business's security cameras from that time period were erased before the police could look at them, however, and they weren't able to prove whether Tsolakis had really been there or not.

    Tsolakis was heavily in debt to many creditors in the community at the time of his disappearance; he reportedly owed at least $200,000, including $147,000 in back taxes. He had gotten in trouble with the law for non-payment of taxes, writing bad checks and operating his pizza business without a permit. The court ordered him to pay $5,500 in restitution over two years, but Tsolakis hadn't been making the restitution payments. Some of his friends believe he was afraid of going to jail, but others said he didn't seem depressed and was behaving normally before his disappearance.

    None of Tsolakis's relatives in the local area, in Florida or in Greece have heard from him. Although some theorize he fled the country to avoid his financial problems, his family stated he was a devoted husband and father to his three children and wouldn't have abandoned them. His case remains unsolved.
