  • Details of Disappearance
    Crumblish was seen May 2, 1981 leaving a late party at The View, a clearing in the woods near a country club. Some accounts said he climbed into a car and headed to a friend's house, while at least one report said Crumblish left the house a short time later and never returned.

    His uncle and aunt, with whom he had been staying in Yorktown, had expected to pick him up from a train station the next day. When he didn't show up, his uncle called Crumblish's mother who then called village police.

    Crumblish was born in Dobbs Ferry in 1964. He spent time in California as a young boy but returned to the village after his parents divorced. He enjoyed playing sports, drawing and writing poetry. At Dobbs Ferry High School, Crumblish played junior varsity football in his sophomore year. During those years, he began drinking and using drugs. He was sent to California to live with his father in 1980 but returned to New York a few months later.

    Friends described Crumblish as fun-loving and happy and said he had given no indication he wanted to run away from home. His wallet was never found but his Social Security card was found in his bedroom and the number and identity haven't been used since he disappeared.

    From the start, there were rumors about a late-night fight and run-ins Crumblish may have had with some teenagers. Since 2002, the case has been treated as a likely homicide even though a body has not been found.
