  • Details of Disappearance
    Bozi married David Kent Fitch in England in April 1999.Shortly thereafter,they relocated to Boulder City Nevada. They resided in Lakeshore Trailer Village, which is part of the Lake Mead National Recreational Area. Fitch was convicted for making counterfeit money and selling marijuana in Arizona in 1991.
    Bozi was last seen at her residence between September 4 and September 9, 1999. She phoned the caretaker in England on September 4. Bozi has never been heard from again. Fitch told their neighbors and her British caretaker that Bozi traveled to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He told park rangers that Bozi returned to Romania to visit her mother, who resided in the country.
    Fitch was pulled over for a speeding violation in Hendersonville in February 2000. He was driving Bozi's Ford Thunderbird at the time. Fitch allowed authorities to search the vehicle, as well as two storage units he maintained in the 4100 block of South Boulder Highway. Investigators discovered firearms inside the units and arrested Fitch. He is not allowed to possess firearms due to his previous felony convictions. Fitch admitted that he made the transactions from Bozi's account after she disappeared. He also stated that he cashed Bozi's check for $40,000 in September 1999.
    Fitch used numerous aliases, including Dr. David, Dr. DK Fitch, James O'Callaghan, Daniel Joseph O'Hare, Michael Bozi and Mario Bozi. Fitch also used the alias David Lee Krause and paid the Nevada resident of the same name $200 for its usage.
    Authorities discovered books regarding identity changes in his storage units. Papers with Bozi's forged signature were also located in the units. Investigators believe that he attempted to coerce others into posing as Bozi for phone calls in an effort to steal cash from her accounts. Fitch pleaded guilty to ten counts of firearms possession and fradulent document charges in July 2000. He was sentenced to eight years in prison. Fitch has never ben charged in connection with Bozi's disappearance, but he remains a suspect.
