Dennis Day, original Mouseketeer who went missing… is the corpse his ?
The Police Department in Oregon this week have found a corpse at the home of Dennis Day, an original Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeer who has been missing for more than 8 months now.
Citing a police statement, there has been no positive identification or cause of death released on the human remains, the Oregonian reported. The police have as yet not revealed details about how or exactly where the body was found, either.
Police in Phoenix, Oregon on Thursday enacted a search and asked Medford coroners to examine a body found at a home belonging to the former child star, the Oregonian reported.
The 76 year-old Day, who appeared on the Mickey Mouse Club show from 1955 until its end in 1957, disappeared in July 2018 after he allegedly told his husband, Ernie Caswell, that he was going to visit friends. Caswell, who has dementia and lives in an assisted living home, gave word of his partner’s disappearance to police days later on July 15.
Dennis Day’s car was found at the Oregon coast about 200 miles away from his home on July 26 in the possession of two individuals “unfamiliar” to the couple, but there was no evidence of a crime or that Day was in the vehicle, Phoenix police Lt. Jeff Price said.
Price also said that both Day and Caswell were “reclusive” and their house was in “very, very poor shape.” He also said that Caswell’s memory loss made it difficult to get critical details for the investigation.
“At this point, [the case] is still open and obviously I haven’t found Dennis,” Price said. There was no evidence of foul play up to that point, he also shared.
Dennis Day is described as being 5 feet, 7 inches tall with gray/brown hair, weighing about 150 pounds. Anyone with information may call (888) 960-6450.
