Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
David Deckert was reported missing with his father, Ernest, on December 15, 2006. The 1997 Mercury Tracer David borrowed and the truck Ernest was driving were also missing. Even more suspicious, the family says they found out a hold was put on their mail. The truck was later located abandoned in the woods near the Decker home, with blood evidence inside. Forensic testing proved that the blood came from Ernest Decker. Neither man has been seen since, and foul play is strongly suspected. A person of interest in this case is Randy Kedigh, who had written Bob a bad check. Witnesses saw Kedigh drive a red car like David's behind a shed. On Sept. 1, 2008, parts from David's car were found in the shed. Witness told authoities car was cut up with reciprcating saw and electric grinder and most of the car had been sent to a salvage yard in Canton. The engine and transmission were scrapped in Minerva, Ohio. A search of the shed revealed a hood, two fenders, headlight assembly, a pair of taillights, and a tire jack. A vin number printed on the fenders matched that of the David's car.
