Has the police department tried making sure his Social Security number is not being used, or taxes filed to rule out any suspicion of intentional hiding? Something seems very wrong with this to me, very fishy.
I agree very odd I went to school with all the above mentioned and wouldn't trust their story! Why didn't the police do a search? And even use dogs!? I think they def know something and likely were too high to remember or did something to Nick! I remember him from school. Very sad to keep things from a grieving family!

This was quite awhile back... I remember Joey Cadle, Johnathan Mabre, Jason Chambers, Jeremy Taylor(junebug), Joe Clark and others being aound that apt. I'm pretty sure I heard the story of Nick going out the back door of the apt in a storm from JuneBug but these people were all around back in those days. I lived close by and went to school with most of these guys is how I knew them.(don't think I spelled some of their name correctly) Nick's family deserves some answers!!

Why Im the world didn't his family file a missing person's report.?? Or they could have broad cast in on the news. This doesn't make since to me. Something is fishy about this. I knew all them boys. The police needs to reopen this case, if there ever was a case. I'm telling you if my child ever went missing, I would search beyond hell & back. You never give up on a missing person!! Because if you do you will never get closure. Hope He's still alive. Praying for you Nick!! & to the family try 2 contact the police and do whatever you can.

I just am not sure, maybe the family just does not know that the Ripley police dept. does not have to be the last stop. There is an FBI headquarters located right in WV. Call them, if they won't listen or don't call you back, pay them a visit. Call the news, get this public! Make a Facebook page about this issue, it's free and you don't have to worry about how to set up a webpage. Maybe the police have told you that you don't want that, maybe your son was into doing drugs sometimes. That doesn't matter! A ton of people do that in their early years! Hell we have had a president that smoked weed, and many who were questionably alcoholics. That doesn't make you an unimportant person or undeserving of justice. Please I pray for you that you do try to take this further, no one's life should be simply discarded. We are all human, and every human being is important!

I feel so bad for the family! My grampa was killed in ripley. They never told the fam the medical exeminers report! But all we do know is that the night he died Devin and Rachel parsons was the only ones in and out! They were not supposed to be their in the first place!

I don't know this man or his family but I feel for them I couldn't imagine losing someone but if no one in his family has taken this above the city police that in its self that looks a little off. I don't know these people or heard this before and maybe they have contacted the FBI but generally speaking families don't lose someone under these circumstances and don't try to find answers. I hope this us not the case and I pray they find him soon, there are resources to help I hope someone reaches out if not already done.

to answer some questions, i have searched facebook for anyone using his name, the case is still open the ripley police contacted me at the first of the year to update, they did a search with cadaver dogs, we searched the creek behind the apartments, and he is listed in the ncic database (i think that's the name of it). we were told that since he was 18 if they found him and he didn't want us to know they couldn't tell us because it is his right to disappear and cut his ties if that's what he wanted. if anyone out there knows any websites that might be helpful in our search it would be appreciated. also there was a newspaper story about his disappearance.

Nick went missing from John Mabry's apartment at wedgewood. He was a friend of mine and i miss him. I've been looking into this for years and what i have found out but not sure if its true (pretty damn sure tho) is that Danniel Moralis pushed him in mill creek behind Mabry's place while he was messed up on dramamine and the creek was up and Nick drowned. From what i understand the only ones who know the truth are Danniel Moralis and John Mabry. Hope this helps. Find Something out. We all want closure.
I know what happened after reading this and dont care to tell my story in hopes to bring closure to his family for something that should have never happened. i will check this tomorrow to see if anyone responds. Im not putting my name on here but id be willing to meet in a public place and tell you what i know and hopefully bring closure and put a scumbag away.

I was literally in his appartment along time ago with my girl we was both 15. He was bangin her I was sitting in the living room like an idiot when her bf knocks. They ended up trying to press charges. But wasn't able to because he passed a lie detector test! Bullshit I was their. She wanted it and he did it. He couldn't pass, I knowthey hold up any way. I hope you get enough to get the ball rolling on things. It just sounds like danniel.

Yes If anyone has info they should approach the police dept there are newer officers and I think they might do more than those old guys

I didn't know this boy, but I feel bad for the family and those who knew him...the anxiety of not knowing has to be horrible. I am pretty sure the person who started this thread never knew or even met Nick, so not sure how she loves or misses him...It seems just cruel to pretend that she did, when his family is grieving and doesn't have closure in any way, good or bad. to Nick's family, I am truly sorry that this has happened, I couldn't imagine what you are going through.
