xx Michael J. Noll - WI
« Thread started on: Oct 27th, 2004, 3:00pm »

Michael J. Noll disappeared from a bar in Wisconsin on the night of November 6, 2002. His body would be later found in the Chippewa River. Noll's death is believed to be from an apparent drowning but others believe he was murdered as was Christopher Jenkins and Jared Dion. There is nothing to confirm that theory, but only speculation.

xx Search goes on for missing student
« Reply #1 on: Oct 27th, 2004, 3:01pm »

Police canines indicated the possibility of a human body being beneath the waters of the Chippewa River near Catherine Street, Eau Claire Deputy Police Chief Gary Foster said Wednesday.

The area being investigated is a few houses away from the residence of junior Michael Noll, 1020 First Ave., who disappeared a week ago.

Crews spent Wednesday dragging the river and deploying divers. Xcel Energy, who operates the Dells Hydro dam upstream from the site, have attempted to control the water level but rivers are hard to predict, Foster said.

Police said crews plan to search the same area of the river again today.

Foster requested Eau Claire residents help the search by reporting if they see anything unusual in or around the river.

The search has been long and exhausting for the friends and family of Noll, a Rochester, Minn. native.

"We're all just getting tired and worn out," said senior Kim Lucas, one of Noll's friends. "But we all love Mike and we care about Mike and we will do whatever we can to find him."

Lucas and about 20 other students have woke up early every morning this week to canoe the river, trudge through the woods and go door to door in search of their friend.

Noll last was seen intoxicated leaving the Nasty Habit Saloon, 341 Water St., between 11 and 11:30 p.m. last Wednesday, his 22nd birthday.

An elderly woman reported Monday night that a man had wandered into her house on the 1000 block of Oxford Avenue before midnight Wednesday. Before leaving the woman's home the man dropped his hat, which later was identified as belonging to Noll.

Lucas was having dinner with other search party members at Noll's house when she heard the news of his hat being found.

"After that we were all so hopeful, we just wanted to go out again right then and there," Lucas said. "We're hoping he found a cellar that he crawled in to sleep maybe he fell down the stairs and he just can't get up."

Junior Nicholas Dittbrenner was with Noll the night he disappeared and has helped search for him this week.

"He would let someone know if he was just off by himself," Dittbrenner said. "We just try to keep busy and keep doing more stuff and plugging away."

Noll's parents, Jeff and Carol Noll of Rochester, Minn., have been in Eau Claire this week helping with the search, Lucas said.

"His parents are immaculate," Lucas said. "They are extremely concerned about our health, about our well-being as students, and they tell us they have their family to help them deal with this."

Although Noll is one of four college-aged students missing in Minnesota and Wisconsin after leaving bars or parties recently, police do not suspect a link, Foster said.

Josh Guimond, a 20-year-old St. John's (Minn.) University student, was last seen at about midnight Saturday as he left a party. Christopher Jenkins, a 21-year-old University of Minnesota student has not been seen since he left a bar Halloween night in Minneapolis. Erika Dalquist, 21, has been missing since Oct. 30 when she last was seen leaving a bar in downtown Brainerd, Minn.

"I feel like this is a time where everybody needs to reflect that maybe drinking could be a big problem," Lucas said. "I know it was (Noll's) birthday and he was out having a good time, but you have to understand that you always have to be with somebody else."

Please note: Erika Dalquist's body was found and there is a man in custody for her disappearance and murder. This is only a past speculation in this area, but nothing to confirm a link.

A few days ago reader Harley Leonard sent me a link to news about four college students in Minnesota and Wisconsin who have gone missing since Halloween. I dug around a little about it, and learned that police have decided the disappearance of the female student, Erika Dalquist of Brainerd, Minn., is not connected to the other three, all of whom involve males: Christopher Jenkins, a 21-year-old University of Minnesota student; Michael J. Noll, a 22-year-old University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student; and Josh Guimond, a 20-year-old St. John's University student. They were originally connected because all four had left parties (some at bars) just before disappearing.

According to an article on Noll just after his disappearance, another student not included in the four had disappeared in similar circumstances in late September. His body was found in a nearby lake a couple of weeks later. In articles about the four, at least three of them are described as being intoxicated when last seen. That would make them more susceptible to kidnapping, but is this likely foul play? It doesn't seem so, but the fact that bodies have not been found yet does raise that question.

While the families of the missing students are going through every parent's nightmare, at the same time it's good to see that the news media are not jumping on this with quite the alacrity they tend to. The information is getting out there that they are missing, but I've not seen specials on a possible serial killer in Minnesota - although the disappearances have been covered nationally, including an interview with Dalquist's uncle by Greta Van Susteren.

One of the reasons why crime is such a major staple in the news, and on television series, is because it is high drama - those victimized by crime are going through possibly one of the worst experiences of their lives, and their families are often dragged into it as well. It's difficult in the face of such trauma to maintain a sense of perspective, to realize that from a wider angle seeming patterns fit well within the statistical probabilities of chance. I was glad to see this section in an article about the disappearances being investigated by the FBI for patterns:

Authorities have said an average of more than 17,000 Minnesotans are reported missing each year. Few are victims of homicide and other crimes. Most are 17 and younger; according to the FBI, 15,401 juvenile runaways were reported in Minnesota last year, and most returned home.
Last year 795 endangered adults, such as nursing-home walkaways, were reported missing, as were 837 disabled people. More than 130 children were abducted in parental disputes.


Now, that isn't to say we should be unconcerned about these things. Having over 15,000 juveniles running away is a problem, and certainly those juveniles are highly endangered - very likely to either be victimized, turn to crime themselves, or both. But it does make it clear that when looking for patterns, we have to disconnect from the emotions of an individual case, or set of cases, and be pragmatic about causation or correlation.

I hope the four students in Minnesota and Wisconsin are found unharmed; in the case of the young men, who were not seen with anyone else, I don't hold out a lot of hope at this point. I'm just glad that the media is not lapsing into full dog-pack baying after the cases, which I think would only hinder the investigations.

Today would've been Michael Noll's 22nd birthday. I hope that some facts can be brought to light about this young mans death as well as Jeremy Houck, Chris Jenkins, and Jared Dion. No family should be left to wonder if someone was responsible for their child's death. I'm thinking of Michael today and all other days.
