19-year-old Bryce Laspisa had just broken up with his girlfriend at a college in northern California. He was distraught and told his parents he was driving to their home in Orange County to tell them something important. Along the I-5 freeway, Laspisa stopped at a rest area. A tow truck driver and 2 deputies were among the people to make contact with Bryce. Hours later, Bryce’s SUV was found overturned near Lake Castaic. His backpack, laptop, wallet, and some clothes were inside, along with a few drops of blood. But there was no sign of Bryce.
We speak with Detective Bob Martindale, one of the original investigators from the LA County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau. Martindale takes us through a detailed timeline of Bryce's behavior and movements up to the day he disappeared.
