Overview of Robert Picard
Robert Picard, a Bunnell, Florida resident, was reported missing on September 30, 1997. At the time of his disappearance, he resided in a trailer on a large plot of land on County Road 2006.
According to reports, Picard's landlord grew concerned after he failed to show up to perform some work and also became delinquent with the rent. To investigate, she dispatched her son, Claude John Pellicer Jr., and her 15-year-old grandson, Claude John Pellicer III, to Picard's trailer.
Upon arrival, the duo discovered Picard's bicycle, his usual mode of transportation, by the back porch. The back door was unlocked, and the interior of the trailer was in disarray. A significant amount of blood was present, and marijuana plants in various stages of growth were scattered throughout the trailer.
A week before his disappearance, Picard's trailer had been burglarized. Eventually, Pellicer III and three others were convicted of the burglary. Pellicer Jr. admitted to hiding some of the stolen goods to protect his son and was charged with tampering with evidence and neglecting to assist the authorities. Pellicer III died in a car accident in 2013.
Authorities suspect foul play in Picard's case and believe he was murdered inside the trailer, with his body possibly disposed of in one of the local lakes. Despite the fact that he was selling marijuana at the time of his disappearance, Picard is described as a non-threatening and reclusive person. As of now, his disappearance remains unsolved.
