Isn't this the same LE agency that screwed up the Keith Warren murder? They should have protected Oliver before and after the trial. That's policework 101. What a shame for what seemed to be a nice, honest, hard working man who made one mistake by buying a stolen car.

There is an article from 2009 somewhere that says there is still no updates. His family said something like they wish one day every day he would come home.

After reading the article, the sad part to me is they've only recently taken his brother's DNA to match it with any other evidence they find. Considering that this murder took place almost 25 years ago,something that should have been done as soon as the technology was available.

I'm not holding out too much hope that this case will be solved as even the article states that the police have no idea of the current location of the main suspect.I hate to say it, but in this case it looks as if someone got away with murder.

Case File 2006DMMD

Circumstances of Disappearance
Munson, a bachelor and somewhat of a recluse, was last seen in 600 block of Orpington Road in Catonsville, Maryland on February 13, 1984. At 7:50 a.m., a neighbor saw Munson leaving his home, alone apparently heading to work.
Wendell was a industrial arts high school teacher in Howard County, MD, and never arrived at school.
He had an occasional girlfriend, but on weekends he often left town to visit his mother and two brothers on the Eastern Shore.
His family reported him missing the next day, February. 14, after checking his home.

On February 16, the 1980 Ford Pinto belonging to Munson is found parked on Braeside Road in Catonsville, about two blocks from his home. The right front tire is flat, apparently due to a slow leak. In it was his touring cap, he usually wore, and had his lunch bag and school notebook on the front seat.

Munson hobby was working on the old cars that littered his yard. Investigators believe that he may have been murdered in retaliation of testifying against an auto theft ring. Mr. Munson had unknowingly bought a blue 1973 Datsun 240Z car from a ring member the year before he disappeared. This car had been stollen the on the morning of Munson's disappearance.
On February 27, the blue 1973 Datsun 240Z that had been stolen was recovered at the edge of Leakin Park in West Baltimore.
In the car were two business receipts with Munson's name, traces of unidentified blood, and a small-caliber shell casing.

His body may have been dumped or buried somewhere, perhaps in Leakin Park, near where the stolen car was later found. February 28, 1984 City police searched Leakin Park without success.

ON May 28, 1985 Munson was legally declared dead, the victim of "presumptive homicide," his body was never found.
Interesting how they call Oliver a "recluse", UM mentioned the guy was very well liked which would lead us to think of him as outgoing and friendly. Unless he was just that way at work and more private outside of work.

yeah, that was weird. The guy had a full time job outside of home, and apparently liked to visit the video store, so I'm not sure how that qualifies him as a recluse.

Sadly, there is just no way Oliver could still be alive. The fact that Dennis Watson is still alive just adds insult to injury. The anniversary of Oliver's disappearance is tomorrow. 29 years.

Is there any way I could find the original segment airing of this case? Very intriguing but it never seemed like much info was given about the case. Thanks!

This is a frustrating case, and I'm sure LE is also frustrated as they more than likely know who the killer is but can't charge him. I really think Oliver should have been offered protection when he was told he had to testify, seeing as it was already known that several other witnesses "mysteriously" met their ends shortly before having to testify against Watson.

It seemed like Oliver was a really nice, scrupulous man who had a positive impact on his students and fellow teachers. It's really a shame he's never been found and Watson, if he is as guilty as he seems, can't be held accountable.

There might be some other explanation for Oliver's bachelorhood. Maybe he hadn't found the right woman yet or, quite possibly, he had been carrying a torch for someone in particular.
Off topic of actual thread, but I don't get why people suddenly shout "not married, no girlfriend, well, he must be gay!!". I am 40 and have never even been on a date before. My sexual orientation is straight. I just never have had any girls actually say yes to me. Ever. And at 40, well, if it hasn't happened by now, it definitely is not going to happen later. What female in her right mind wants a 40 year old burnout? A friend of mine who is two years younger than me got married a few months ago. He was in the same boat, as he had never even been on a date in his life until age 38. He met a very attractive girl who is in her mid 20's. Sound great, right? Not so fast! HUGE catch. She has never had a job and is used to being taken care of. She has already been married and divorced twice and has even admitted to my friend that she is only married to him because he makes really good money. Which, to be honest, I can see. Why else would a girl in her mid-20's marry an old guy in his late 30's, unless he has money. So, actually, a small part of me is glad I'm single.

1. I agree with you totally: it's not at all a given that single men without girlfriends are gay. It's a jump to a conclusion.

2. A close friend of mine married her husband while in her mid-twenties and he was in his late thirties. She actually earns a slightly higher income than he does. So, perhaps a reason a woman at that age marries an older man is because she loves that man. So, to assume all younger women seek the money and resources of older men in marriage is...a jump to a conclusion.

I've always felt so bad for Oliver Munson. Just an innocent victim in all of this. I agree btw, not many school teachers who interact with many people on a daily basis can hardly be called a recluse. Maybe shy is a more appropriate word.

You are so right. My DH was 33 when we married. He had dated very little. He was just quiet and shy.
We have a mutual friend, he is DHs age. A little slow but very independent. I remember him having tears in his eyes telling me how lonely he was, he just wanted to meet the right woman and get married.he was in his mid 50s then. Not long after he did meet the right woman, at work. That was about 15 years ago and they are still happily married.

So no, every single man that doesn't date is not gay.

Yeah, the only time he seemed apprehensive was when the police came to his house to ask him to testify. And heck, who wouldn't be apprehensive in those circumstances?
