    Details of Disappearance

    Stackhouse left his parents' home in the 100 block of Lynn Circle in Syracuse, New York between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. on December 2, 2005. He and his friends went to a basketball game at Christian Brothers Academy. When his parents woke up the next morning, their son had still not returned and they reported him as a missing person. He may have been in a green four-door 2003 Hyundai at the time of his disappearance.

    Stackhouse's friend said he dropped him off at a store close to his home, but later changed his story and said Stackhouse got into an altercation with some Native Americans at the basketball game. One witness reported having overheard two men bragging about killing Stackhouse and dumping his body on land owned by the Onondaga Indian Nation, but the story was never confirmed and the police described the witness as incompetent.

    In the days following his disappearance, Stackhouse's parents and his girlfriend received several anonymous telephone calls; the caller(s) told them where to find Stackhouse's body. Authorities have no hard evidence that Stackhouse is deceased, but they consider his disappearance to be suspicious. At the time of his disappearance he had two misdemeanor warrants out for his arrest, but investigators do not believe this is why he vanished. Stackhouse left behind a young daughter. He worked at a nursing home at the time of his disappearance, and his parents described him as a well-behaved young man who was never involved with gangs. His case remains unsolved.
