  • Details of Disappearance
    McEntire was last seen by family members leaving his residence with a shotgun. His vehicle was subsequently found in the parking lot of his business, located just a few miles away on State Route 209 in Chestnuthill, Monroe County, but there was no sign of him. A jury in January convicted Anthony Caiby, 40, of Hazleton, of premeditated murder, drug possession with intent to deliver, conspiracy to both crimes, evidence-tampering and abusing a corpse in the 2005 death of David McEntire, 42, of Polk Township. Having fallen on hard times and turned to drug use, McEntire was accused of stealing drugs and money from Caiby, a dealer at the time, according to trial testimony from fellow drug dealer/user Edwin Kelly, 51, in whose Scotrun home the murder occurred, and Lisa Stavish, 33, a drug user staying there at the time. When McEntire came to Kelly's home Oct. 8, 2005, Caiby ordered Kelly and Stavish to take part in McEntire's murder, according to testimony. A fourth person, identified as James Gaines, 30, of Brooklyn, N.Y., likewise took part in the murder, Kelly and Stavish testified. McEntire's remains has yet to be found.
