From reading MamaS' link, I am hardly thinking suicide either!

This is the only Robert J. Owens from Buncombe that I could find and he is, at present, incarcerated. Let's hope some valuable DNA is found here.

Wasn't there a message written in lipstick on the car somewhere?

And I seem to remember a puppy was in the car as well ...

I found it interesting that the Norfolk Southern employee who discovered the remains had found a body before under similar circumstances ... they said in 13 WLOS That he had gone into the woods to urinate.

Employee of the month material.

No, I dont think suicide was the case with Zebb. My husband knew him as well as the guy he was last seen with, they went to high school together. He did say Owens was very odd, and when they did the dig on the Owens property a while back, he said he would not have been surprised if they found something. Another thing though, is that my husband has said that Jason would be much too clever than to have simply left a body behind a restaurant. Who knows anymore...

I'm having a very tough time accepting suicide as well. If your husband knew Owens, is that link I gave above the right guy?

Is the owens guy a homosexual? If he is, the Quinn situation makes slightly more sense.

Yes, that is him in your link, What. As far as the homosexual aspect of things, I know that it was suspected back in high school. Noone really knew, but my husband did say that he wouldnt be surprised in the least. He is supposedly very "clever," as a few people I know have put it.

Thanks. I sure hope they don't close this as a suicide just yet.

It seems as though something is bothering you. Do you need to talk to someone about what you might know? Don't cover for someone if you know something.

Zeb Quinn was a young person who was taken in his prime. I knew Zeb because we were on the same bus stop in 8th grade. He got hit by a car that year while waiting for the bus... Zeb was a very nice person. I hope who ever did this to him will be punished.
