Media report, KXLH.com, 22 September 1999:
"The FBI and the Wheatland County Sheriff's Department are still mystified by the disappearance of a team of U-Penn archeologists from the Big Porcupine Creek area. While the FBI are tight-lipped, sources within the investigation have confirmed that the disappearance has been linked to that of University of Montana-Helena grad student Franklin Opetz, and that Dr Thomas Thorley is a prime suspect in the investigation. Dr Thorley has not been since since escaping from the custody of the Wheatland County Sheriff's Department a week ago, having been arrested after reportedly threatening the U-Penn team with a shotgun. U-Penn archeologists Dr Emmett Wilson, Larry Kazal, Denise Oester, and Gareth Wylin disappeared sometime on September 8 from the Harlowtown, MT Motel 6 where they had been staying..."
