Project Astral has obtained new information from an UNKNOWN SOURCE that has been posting on the Unsolved Mysteries forum.  Their information has checked-out, and we are now posting those findings.  

Here is the original statement:

“December 6, 1981 …. Craig H. Franko was killed Thursday as he worked at a downtown service station.”

“That is most likely the “Franco” Kurt got int the van with. There are more apparent connections to Kurt and Eugene’s deaths around the same time period, not to mention that 2 of the Newburgh Heights investigating officers were fired for corruption, and 3 others were killed in a car crash while the driver, another officer survived but jumped bond and disappeared. 35 years have passed, and while I was only involved after the fact (I am one of the three boys that found Kurt) I still think about the case and all the loose ends that no one ever followed up on, even though much was reported in 81, then again during the filming of the UM segment.”  – UNKNOWN SOURCE

We researched Craig H. Franko (20) and found this information: Craig Franko was shot while working at a local gas station in Cuyahoga County (which is about a 10-minute drive from where Kurt was found dead.)

Sohio offers reward Associated Press CLEVELAND The Standard Oil Co. of Ohio has posted a $10,-000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the shooting death of a Sohio employee in Cleveland. Craig H. Franko was killed Thursday as he worked at a downtown service station.” – Akron Beacon Journal

Who is Chief James F. Lukas?  Is there any other details on him and Robert Carras?  Why did the police investigation fail at catching the killer(s) of Kurt Sova and Eugene Kvet?  We answer these questions in Part III.

This is an official EXIT 9 investigation.
