Details of Disappearance Sharclane was last seen in Juneau, Alaska on September 25, 1977. He has never been heard from again. His grandfather filed a missing persons report on November 17, and a grand jury convened to investigate the disappearance on December 8. A suspect, Peter Castillo, was indicted for second-degree murder.
According to the prosecution, shortly after midnight, Sharclane encountered Castillo on the Juneau-Douglas Bridge. The two men got into a fight, and Castillo threw Sharclane off the bridge. It was a 49-foot drop from the railing to the water. It's unclear whether Sharclane could swim, and he had been drinking earlier on the night he went missing.
Sharclane's body was never found and no one saw him dead, so Castillo was convicted of attempted murder. Sharclane remains classified as a missing person but is presumed dead.
