Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Lynne was last seen at Middlebury College on December 10, 1971. Schulze was walking to a final exam with fellow students when she announced she had to retrieve a pencil from her dorm room. Lynne Schulze never showed up for the exam, which was scheduled for 1 p.m. When her friends went to her room to check her, she was gone. She left all her clothes in her room and vanished without her wallet or identification, so it seems unlikely she had planned to run away. Schulze was a student of Middlebury College and she was a freshman when she disappeared. She appeared to be well-adjusted. Investigaors speculated that she had been a little depressed on the time of her disappearance. She had registered for spring classes. Schulze was described as an all-American kid off at college with a typical and wholesome personality. She was a native of Simsbury, Connecticut.
Real estate millionaire Robert Durst was a suspect for her disappearance. Robert Durst owned and operated the All Good Things health food store in Middlebury, Vermont, at the time. Schulze was seen across the street from Durst's store and the Vermont bus station around 2pm on December 10, 1971. The case was re-opened in 1992. Durst was being looked at in connection with five deaths or disappearances.
Schulze’s parents died in the 1990s, but her sister is still alive.
