In 1984, a father of three disappeared while working at a mysterious Cincinnati plant. It turned out he’d met a gruesome fate: Pieces of bone, his eyeglasses and walkie-talkie were uncovered inside a vat that reached 1350 degrees Fahrenheit. Five months later, the Fernald Feed Materials Production Center was revealed to have been processing uranium – and polluting the region. The dead man’s children believe their father was murdered because he intended to expose how the plant had been releasing thousands of pounds of uranium dust into the atmosphere. We’re hoping to figure out: Did 39-year-old David Bocks kill himself, as Fernald officials alleged, or was he more likely killed?
A 39-year-old father of three goes to work and disappears. That’s strange enough. Adding in where he works makes this case more than strange. It’s the stuff conspiracies are made of.
Testing the Theory
Police dismissed the 1984 disappearance of David Bocks as a suicide, but the physics of the death make that theory seem unlikely.
