Overview of Michael Sheppard

Michael Sheppard, a Milan, Ohio resident, was last seen on May 8, 2003, and has not been heard from since. Prior to his disappearance, Sheppard was living in his mother and stepfather's house in Milan, but they asked him to leave after discovering he was selling drugs. He went to visit his mother in a red Ford pickup truck he claimed to have just bought and promised to return two days later. However, Sheppard never came back.

Several months later, Sheppard's mother received calls from two brothers in Las Vegas who informed her that Sheppard had stolen thousands of dollars from a drug dealer. They threatened his life and demanded to know his whereabouts. After this, his mother reported him missing to the police.

According to Sheppard's family, he was using drugs since high school and started selling them in his twenties. Despite his addiction, Sheppard remained in touch with his family. Since 2003, his family has not heard from him.

In May 2017, three men were indicted for Sheppard's murder: Joshua W. Stamm, Adam White, and Scott Hall. Stamm, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter, cooperated with the prosecution and was sentenced to three years in prison. He admitted that Sheppard was shot multiple times during a drug deal gone wrong, and his body was buried in the Fox Lane area between Norwalk and Milan, Ohio. White and Hall are still awaiting trial.

Authorities believe that Sheppard was murdered by his drug associates and that his body may be located in the Huron County area. Nonetheless, his case remains unsolved, and investigators are hopeful that they can recover his remains.
