Details of Disappearance
Williams-Comer was last seen in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 8, 1995. He has never been heard from again. After his disappearance, his vehicle was found at Castleton Square Mall. Authorities believe he was a victim of the serial killer Herbert Richard "Herb" Baumeister, who was responsible for the deaths of many young men in the Indianapolis area during the 1990s.
A photo of Baumeister is posted with this case summary. He shot himself in Port Huron, Ontario in June 1996, just as the police were preparing to arrest him. He left a note blaming his suicide on business troubles and his failing marriage, and did not mention the murders.
A search of Baumeister's eighteen-acre property turned up the burned skeletal remains of approximately eleven individuals, only four of whom have been identified. As a young gay man, Williams-Comer fits the profile of Baumeister's victims. His body was not found on the serial killer's property, however.
