This weekend popular DJ Michael Packard unwittingly joined a growing list of missing young males found dead in the Lawrence Kansas area:
The 26-year-old vanished New Year's eve while "working the door" at the Granada Theater.
He was officially reported missing by friends when he subsequently failed to show for a regular disc jockey gig at the Bottleneck bar on Thursday evening.
Following a fruitless search for him, Packard's corpse was just discovered Friday on the grounds of Clinton State Park.
Why he would have gone there at all still remains a mystery, but, as with other young men who've met up with a similar fate in this district recently, police are already claiming there was "no foul play" involved in either his disappearance or premature demise.
However, a cause of death for Michael Packard has yet to be determined.
