  • Details of Disappearance
    Steven Pearsall was last seen in Lewiston on September 12, 1982. Pearsall was last seen about midnight, when his girlfriend dropped him off at the Lewiston Civic Theater. She left him at the basement door. He told her he was going to do his laundry in the theater washing machine and practice his clarinet. Police found Pearsall's clarinet at the theater. But his duffle bag, presumably containing his dirty clothes, has never been found. Pearsall's uncashed paycheck was found at his apartment. His car remained parked at his father's home where Pearsall had left it. He vanished the same night as Kristina Nelson and Jacqueline Miller, and are all believed to have been at or near the Lewiston Civic Theater sometime during the night. Almost two years after their disappearance, the bodies of the women were found on a brushy slope in Kendrick. Pearsall and Nelson were acquainted. They lived just four houses apart on the same side of the street, both in basement apartments on the 200 block of 4th Street. Both attended art classes at Lewis-Clark State College. Both were associated with the Civic Theater. Pearsall was a janitor at the theatre at the time he disappeared.
