Details of Disappearance
Rush disappeared from his St. Paul, Minnesota apartment on February 17, 2003. He left notes behind dictating who should receive his possessions. Two days later, on February 19, he jumped to his death from a parking garage at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
He was carrying no identification at the time he took his own life. This and the fact that Rush was not reported missing for weeks after his death hindered identification efforts. Rush's remains were finally identified in February 2008, five years almost to the day from his disappearance.
