On June 30, 1947, Albert Becker disappeared from Elk township farm with a reported $11,000 in cash in his pockets. The case baffled local officials, who could not locate a single clue. Nothing more was heard of the mystery until March 6, 1949, when members of the Duck Creek Beagle Club found Becker's skeleton and a number of personal possessions while holding spring trials in a field south of Caldwell. Local residents found more items at the scene in following weeks but turned up nothing conclusive. Suspects were arrested and later released after after they passed lie detector tests. All of this kept interest in the case alive, through it eventually waned. The last mention of it in the Journal came in May, when officials denied rumors that Becker was living in Cleveland.
