Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Mortier was last seen at MATC - The Madison Area Technical College, by a professor and a friend on November 8, 2004. After some missed engagements, friends found his house at 5078 Lacy Road empty, but with the stereo on and some outside doors open. Mortier's dog, Gnosis, was also missing. Both of his cars were in the driveway, and his backpack was in one of them. Police found the dog shortly thereafter. A neighbor had found the husky mix and had taken it in earlier, but didn't know whose it was.
Mortier was the Madison source of a large-scale marijuana conspiracy out of New York, Vermont, Maine and Canada. Testimony earlier this year in federal court indicated Mortier confronted a drug associate four days before he disappeared - Mortier was short on money and was convinced the drug associate had robbed him of thousands of dollars of marijuana. The associate was at or near Mortier's house around the same time that Mortier's still-missing cell phone was turned off for the last time.
