  • Details of Disappearance
    Nash, a retired Transit Authority motorman, was last seen at 2:30 p.m. on April 10, 2000, in the vicinity of Paulding Avenue in the Bronx, New York, within the confines of the 47th Precinct.

    Michael normally maintained daily contact with his family. On the day of his disappearance, $600 was taken from his account at Chase Bank. His vehicle was left at his residence.

    On April 8, 2000 he called his twin sister and said two burly men had visited him in his home in Pelham Bay, the Bronx, and ordered him out. His family members believe the men who visited him may have killed him to take over the house. It had been willed to Nash for the low price of $20,000 plus back taxes by its deceased owner.

    Two days later, a fire broke out in the basement of the house. Fire marshals determined the blaze had been set by someone who doused the basement with flammable liquid and lit a match. No human remains were found in the ashes. Nash has not been seen since.

    His wallet and bags of lottery tickets, good for dates beyond his disappearance, were in the house. His TA pension check has not been touched.
