  • Details of Disappearance
    Basile was last seen in Port Orange, Florida on June 10, 1975. Port Orange police at first believed she had run away. Susan was described as a good student who enjoyed trips to Disney World and going to the skating rink.

    In October 1982, Serial-Killer Gerald Stano confessed to her murder. He told police that he picked her up as she exited a school bus on June 10, 1975, in Port Orange. He said he enticed her with a ride to the Starlite Skate Center on South Nova Road.

    Instead, he strangled her and left her body in a patch of woods, covered with palm fronds. Her body was never found and the site has since been built over.
