The last time Lori was last seen, she was walking on the bridge above the 80-90 turnpike (otherwise known as Hallett Road), which heads out of Swanton, Ohio. This was on Friday, October 24, 1985 at approximately 10:00 p.m. She was coming from an after football game rally for the Swanton High School Bulldogs where she had gotten into an argument with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was cleared as a suspect in her murder.
An acquaintance named Steve saw Lori walking to Mr. G.'s Pizza Parlor on Main Street next to the railroad tracks (it is no longer Mr. G's although it is still operating as a pizza parlor) in Swanton, Ohio, and gave her a ride. At Mr. G's, she made two phone calls and then started to walk home. It is not known who Lori called. (Steve was eliminated as a suspect). The last time Lori was seen was walking out of Mr. G's at 10:00 p.m. It is assumed that Lori was walking home from Mr.G's which is an approximate 7 mile walk. She had to pass Hubs Bar on the way home.
