If you get it from the Pasadena PD, it may have more info on where his remains were found rather than were he lived. But you never know!

The killer(s) took Matt from L.A. to Pasadena using the 110 freeway. The 110 north is the first freeway in the U.S. and looks every bit as much so. It's also different from the other freeways in and around L.A. because it takes you through considerably older, residential areas of Los Angeles. The freeway is very curvy, narrow, and just unsafe because people merge from stop signs on the left and right! Most people only use this freeway to get to areas in and around Pasadena from downtown. Pasadena itself has many "hilly" areas that were unincorporated for the longest time. I think there are more than a couple of ravines in Pasadena.

You can't get from downtown to Pasadena using the 101 without taking a HUGE detour. Regardless, a drive from that part of downtown to Pasadena would have taken 20 minutes tops late at night. Whoever abducted Matt knew where they were taking him and what they were doing.

I always felt safe in most parts of LA. Including downtown. Even during the night. Matt was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some monster just saw a guy by himself and took advantage of that.

I've always felt the killer put the bandanna there to throw off police, after all, it was gang infested, he could easily have seen this as an opportunity.

As far as Pasadena goes, perhaps the killer lives there, and knew that area.

I just can't fathom that a gang member (especially since, call me stereotypical, the man in the picture does not look like a gang member) did this.

Not to deviate any but,

I just had a look at the composite drawings again on UM's site. Is it wrong that the second one reminds me of Robert Mitchum for whatever odd reason?

One thing I found strange about this case is Matt's body was found only three months after he was missing. When they interviewed Teresa they still hadn't found Matt, meaning UM jumped all over it, like RIGHT after it happened. Am I missing something?

I just re-watched it. They found the body in September 3 months after he disappeared, but he wasn't identified until the following March. At the beginning of the segment, RS said that Matthew had been missing for 5 months. So they must have run the story after the body had been found but before he had been identified. Then they updated the story after the body was identified.

I agree that the bandana was probably put there to throw police off, because if that guy (and whoever else could/might have been involved) was smart and detailed enough to wipe everything clean of fingerprints in Matthew Chase's car, then he was probably smart enough to know if he had left anything in the car or not.

Agreed. I think this is an example of a guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was a victim of random violence.

The Bandana is a red herring, whether it be deliberate or not. That could have belonged to a friend of Matt's for all we know.

I think one thing's for sure: the guy next to him in the ATM photo was responsible for Matthew's death in one way or another (either he was his killer or he was an associate of whomever killed him).

The guy seen in the camera with Matt definitely killed him. Have they taken DNA from Matt's car and that bandana? I don't remember. I feel bad for Matt's friend in the interview, she really cared about him and I think liked him more than a friend but that's just me. Either way, it's sad that 24 years have flown by and no one has been arrested for killing him.

No doubt he was involved. Unfortunately we probably will never know the reasoning behind what that guy wanted and what Matthew had to do with it. He seemed like a normal guy but as we know that isn't always the case underneath since people can have secrets

This has to be one of the most chilling UM cases ever. After watching it on a certain site for the first time a few years ago, I have never used an ATM after dusk.

Yeah this case just baffles me why Mathew was so eager to get to the ATM at such a late or dark time. I mean he couldn't have waited the next day? Another half a day couldn't have made a difference.

Matt originally went out to deposit his paycheck, so I always thought it might have been one of those living paycheck-to-paycheck situations. I've had to do that before and even though that's not the case now, when I receive any kind of paper check I still deposit it immediately.

Ok, I know it's been a really long time since anyone has posted and I just started to follow this case.

It seems to me that some people here are coming up with wild theories to try to rule out that this may have been a gang related crime.

Fact is that LA is a place that is laden with gang activity. Also, the bandana is a dead give a way, especially considering the initials on the bandana. To say that someone planted it there to throw off the police is just an ad hoc theory with absolutely no basis. The only explanation is that the pic of the suspect looks older than Matt who was 22... and how can anyone really figure that? The photo is so grainy that it is hard to really make out any distinct features.

It's unfortunate that this case will most likely never be solved. But I think there is more than enough evidence to suggest that Matt was the victim of gang related foul play. All explanations against that theory thus far have been pretty silly.
