Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Dubbs was last seen as he left his Madison Avenue job in Manhattan at about 5 p.m., June 9, 1981. His employer, a Public Relations Firm, reported him missing after he did not show up for work the next day. The Newtown resident had a routine that he followed in commuting to his job. Dubbs apparently lived with another man who would drive Dubbs to the train station at 6 a.m. to be into work by 8 a.m. At the end of the work day, the man reportedly went to the Bethel train station to pick Dubbs up as he normally did, but upon not finding him there, checked another train station before giving up and going home. The man had known Dubbs for only a few months, having met him through mutual friends and moved in shortly afterward. Dubbs apparently would sometimes stay in New York rather than commute home. His house on Taunton Lane showed no evidence that he had returned home on the day he disappeared. Mr. Dubbs was known to take the CONRAIL Commuter Train out of Grand Central Station (NYC) to the West Redding RR Station or the Bethel RR Station - both in Western Connecticut, when going to and from work. Mr. Dubbs frequented the "bar car" which served alcoholic beverages.
