I just watched this on Disappeared & the show doesn't mention a lot of things. Forensics in the car: did they get any fingerprints or DNA from the car? This show has left more questions than answers. Nevertheless, it's definitely not suicide, a person who kills themselves cannot hide their body. 1 of 2 things happened to him: He got frantic and scared (as was described the night he disappeared) and ran away, hence the Hotel key found in his car abandoned in the car park, but the lip stick on the back window rules that out in my view, someone else drew that on the window and are teasing the Police. Therefore, he was lured to his death by the page from his Aunts house.. during the show 'Disappeared' they mention his aunt was going into business with the girls boyfriend he was cheating with, this was obviously effecting that situation. Why isn't this a motive for the police? no wonder the aunt has left town, she knows that happened.

People can make fun because they are so detached from the situation, they don't have to see the victims, their upset families or any of that. To them it is just a sentence and a concept that they make fun to make themselves feel cool. I have a dry and sick sense of humor myself, but you gotta have some class about it, I mean goddamn! It is one thing to joke like that around friends, but to post it where someones family can read it is insensitive, rude, and just plain wrong.

That being said, I bet they were sexy laying there all maggot covered and rotten.

Yep, you morons who think this story is funny need to think again. What if you had a missing relative? Would you appreciate a bunch of non-thinking dumbasses posting what they think are clever remarks about a body being found? No, you would not. So grow up, folks, and find some compassion for those families who are missing loved ones, and for the person whose bones were found. The fact that this was a human being is a reason to be respectful. No other reason is necessary.
I so agree with you about the remains of any human being whose remains are found it is nothing to joke or make fun about as it could be someone any one on the other comments have joked about shame on them thoughts and prayers to the family whose remains might be identified my heart is with them

Those lips in the car meant silence.... Or that is what I believe...I just so the show in dessapeared... Very sad that this young man was in love with that girl that got him to his death... I think she knows what happened but she is afraid of his boyfriend and I think his aunt knows but is scared too...she lured him to them.

Is the owens guy a homosexual? If he is, the Quinn situation makes slightly more sense.
what in the world would being homosexual have to do with his disappearance? It is a known fact that Jebb was infatuated with Misty. They were talking in secret behind her boyfriends back and eventually they got caught. i guess it's just easier to blame everything on homosexual's. idiot.

I really want this to be solved so I can see Misty especially get carted off to jail. I think they killed Zebb to rob him for the cash he had to buy the car. Wesley participated out of anger over Zebb contacting Misty. Misty Ida & Jason helped lure Zebb to Wesley. Those shitass white trash kids killed that sweet boy & Ida helped. He's buried somewhere nearby.

I didn't know his mother is no longer living. Very sad if that's true. She died not knowing what happened to her son.

After seeing the "Disappeared" I believe all those names mentioned above had a hand in it. Jason, Wesley, Misty, The Aunt. They all had different motives and incentive to take part in the crime. There was an obvious interdependence between all 4 in some way or another. They probably remained quiet because if they told law enforcement what happened and the others were apprehended, they would all go down.

Jason: Wanted money more than anything else
Wesley: Jealousy, wanted the good guy out of the picture
Misty: Had a kid with Wesley, didn't want to rock the family boat
Aunt: Financial incentive to maintain good relations with Wesley's family in order to preserve the potential business venture

So sad such a pure guy like Zeb got wrapped up with these 4. What's the chances an innocent person gets involved with such shady lowlives.

.

I'm wondering why your cousin would call in sick for this kid to Wal-Mart when supposedly they had parted ways the night before. Also, it appears that your cousin had a questionable reputation. I don't know for a fact, but is/was he not in jail for other crimes? If he really left this kid unharmed then I feel sorry for your cousin, but his story really seems convoluted.

I keep reading theories that Jason intentionally lured him to Misty and her boyfriend. If that was the case, why is there a text from his Aunt's house? The same Aunt who was a potential alibi for Misty and her boyfriend (the only one with a known motive).

Is it possible that Jason inadvertently ended up there? Maybe Zeb got a page and Jason went with him to meet Misty and/or boyfriend. I don't think he was intentionally killed either, nor was it premeditated. It doesn't make sense to page someone right before you plan to murder them. It puts a huge red flag on you as a suspect. If, Jason was at the wrong place at the wrong time then he could have become wounded from that. Maybe, he was threatened to keep his mouth shut or he would be next. Maybe, the lips (keep them sealed) and the puppy (no idea why) were a message to him. Possibly, part of his instructions were to call in sick for Zeb the next day.
