Two months after the body of an aspiring writer and filmmaker turned up in the California desert, his family is desperate for answers and certain foul play was involved.

Ryan Singleton, a 24-year-old former model, flew from his family's Atlanta home to Los Angeles in July for a short vacation. Once there, he rented a car for a trip to Las Vegas, but things apparently went awry on the return trip as he drove through the desolate Mojave Desert on July 9. Near the tiny southeast California town of Baker, the car broke down and Singleton called a friend from a rest stop.

It was the last time anyone would hear from him. Tight-lipped investigators have released little information about any progress on the case, and Singleton's family knows little more than they did when he was initially reported missing.

Joggers would find Singleton's body two-and-a-half months later, its organs gone. While the autopsy report has not been released, law enforcement officials passed the gruesome detail on to Singleton's mother, she said, leaving her to speculate about her son's fate. Although experts told say the organs were likely taken from the body by scavenging animals, Singleton's family remains suspicious.

Investigators trying to reconstruct Singleton's final hours have told his family they believe he was picked up by a Highway Patrol officer after his car broke down and driven to the rest stop in Baker. Once there, Singleton called the friend who lived three hours away, and asked to be picked up, according to the family. But when the friend arrived and could not find Singleton, he reported him missing.   

The family said authorities have said little to them about what happened to Singleton and have not yet disclosed a cause of death. Singleton's mother and same-sex spouse said they are convinced foul play was involved, but said they are unaware of a possible motive.

Poor man . Perhaps he stumbled into Area 53 ?

Jokes aside , I do think animals devour everything and not only the organs , considering the geological resources in those mountains so its a no go.

Flesh traffic is more likely to happen in cases like this, considering his age .

If it was kidneys, heart, lungs, I might believe organ transplants.

 

But all the internal organs sounds like alien foolery.

What would aliens want with them? Exotic cuisine on their home planet?

 

And why would they abandon the body to found? They could have used their phasers to disintegrate the corpse and leave no trace!

They sell for big money on the black market.

Pretty easy to work out if they were harvested or if it was animals.

my guess would be:

 

1. 24 yrs of age

2. high chance of healthy organs and fully working

3. high black market value

4. most likely an easy target

 

Its pretty sad really that people resort to this over what ... money? Its so sick.

I believe animals do prefer organs over other parts first because they are more nutritious. Maybe a coyote ate his organs and was full but how could he lose to a coyote at a rest stop. What are the odds a coyote ate his organs and nothing else came across the rest of him. Although I am not familiar with this rest stop it sounds like it is infrequently traveled. What are the odds organ thiefs were driving in the desert by this rest stop. That leaves one conclusion. Chupacabra!

^ I don't see how a predator like a coyote, would get thru the rib cage to get to the heart, lungs.

Good point. I don't blame family and friends wanting to know more but what more can they discover besides what they found out from the autopsy. This will always remain as a mystery.

I dunno, my dog could find junk hidden deep under the refrigerator. I think it's possible.  :laugh:

Possible yes but the autopsy would probably indicate trace of bites.
