xx Stacey Balas - Nov. 26, 1996 - OH
« Thread started on: Oct 9th, 2004, 11:58pm »

At the time of her disappearance Miss Stacey Lynn Balas was 25 years old, 5'5" tall and weighed 130 lbs. She has brown hair and blue eyes. As the result of an auto accident Stacey has a very distinctive scar on her throat from a tracheotomy.

Miss Balas was a model citizen in North Ridgeville, Ohio, and was liked by all those who knew her, both her peers and adults. She was a honor student who excelled in learning German, where she earned an A+ in her class. In 1986 she took a trip to Europe with her class.

Stacey was not one to argue much and had high standards for herself, abstaining from alcohol and drugs. She never even wore much makeup, and rarely ever took an aspirin. Her parents encouraged her to work and save her money for her future.

Stacey's mother, Mrs. Lynn Balas and her aunt opened a flower shop in a former nursing home that had been owned and managed by Stacey's grandmother. This was Stacey's first job and one of her favorite duties was to hand feed the little birds they raised in the flower shop. She also cleaned their cages and delivered the flowers.

Stacey always brought a smile to those she delivered to. One local resident in reminiscing about Stacey, recalled that a time when she had been ill and Stacey's smile aided her recovery. This once pleasant memory now only brings her a heartache.

After working hard and saving $10,000, Stacey purchased a late model Nissan Pulsar. She felt it important to set a standard for every passenger that rode with her. They were to wear their seatbelts, couldn't smoke, or distract the driver while enroute.

Unfortunately, Stacey life almost ended on June 19, 1988. She was involved in a serious automobile accident while a passenger in a Pontiac Fiero. A friend was backing out of a driveway and accidentally backed into a moving semi-trailer truck. Stacey was knocked unconscious at the scene and was taken to a local hospital. Once stabilized she was airlifted by Life Flight to Cleveland Metro Hospital.

Her family was told that Stacey may not live through the night. She was in a coma for four weeks in intensive care, spending six weeks total in the hospital. Stacey had suffered severe physical injuries including frontal lobe damage.

When she awoke Stacey was like an infant, and had to be retrained in every aspect of her life. The family remembers well her homecoming on September 3, 1988 along with the attached feeding tube. They spent many hours working with her at home, assisting with detailed therapy, as well as time at the hospital. By year's end Stacey was able to recover to the point that she and her family was able to vacation in Florida for Christmas.

Friends and family were very important to Stacey during her recovery process. Many of her friends supported Stacey through her seemingly endless recovery, however there were a few who did not. This depressed her badly for several years. In spite of her struggles Stacey was able to graduate with her class in 1989.

She was placed on Social Security Disability as she continued her therapy. Never losing her desire to work she applied at a local grocery store as a cashier. She passed the test and was hired. During this period of time Stacey struggled with the realization of how she was prior to the accident versus her present state.

After two years of being a cashier she was transferred to the bakery because of her persistent memory problem after the accident. Stacey was unsatisfied with the bakery position and decided it was time to move on. Stacey decided to return to work at her mother's and aunt's flower shop.

After spending a short time once again delivering flowers Stacey seemed to desire a more independent lifestyle. She applied at local pizza parlor and was accepted for the position. The employees liked her very well, and she found herself loving her work environment. In May of 1995 she bought a new Nissan Pathfinder.

Stacey's fianc'e was working at a Subway Sandwich Shop and encouraged her to seek a position at another Subway Sandwich Shop nearby. She completed her training and then was transferred to the Fairview Subway Sandwich Shop in Fairview Park, Ohio. She had only worked there a few weeks until that dreadful night of November 25, 1996. Stacey was apprehensive about closing on the night shift because the Fairview Subway Shop had been broken into just a few weeks prior at a rear entrance during her shift and money had been taken.

What Happened to Stacey Balashuh

Eight years ago tonight, Stacey Lynn Balas helped close the local Subway at around 1 a.m. where she was employed. Stacey was to be back at work the next day at 11 a.m. Once the shop's last customer left, that would be the last time anybody would ever see Stacey alive or dead. What happened to Stacey that fateful night? The manager of the local Subway was Larry Wade, a known sex offender to many, but not to the family of Stacey Balas. Stacey's vehicle was found up the road at a hotel but, no sign of Stacey. She had simply vanished without a trace.

Stacey was working at the Subway because she wanted to earn money and to be considered a normal working class citizen and not handicapped.
A few years earlier, Stacey sustained a massive head injury in a car accident leaving her unable to handle normal every day functions. Before Stacey's accident she attended the community college and spoke German fluently. She was determined to not let life's unfortunate experiences get the best of her.

A mere three months after Stacey's mysterious disappearance, a real estate agent was brutally raped and left for dead in the same area. The assailant was none other than Larry Wade. The last person to see Stacey Balas as she closed the Subway. Wade was convicted of the rape of the other woman and he now resides in prison. He will be released in a few years back out into society. No charges have been filed in the disappearance of Stacey Balas, but allegations have began to surface that perhaps there will be some shortly.

Someone knows what happened to Stacey Balas and her whereabouts. Her family continues to wait for answers even after all of this time. This is not fair to the Balas family or to any other family of someone missing. As this eight year anniversary arrives and passes. They are sitting and waiting patiently for answers. God bless the Balas family on this difficult day and all those who have searched continously for her. Stacey must be found and brought back home.

Original Post By Sappho

(I cannot get this message Broad to work. I cannot post this in her thread.)

We are RUNNING out of time. Stacey Balas killer Larry Wade will be out of prison and free to rape & kill more woman on June 7, 2006!!!!!!! He will GET AWAY with what he did to Stacey. His DNA has YET TO BE put into COADUS by the state of Ohio. They have had NINE YEARS to do this and still have not done it.

This means when he gets out and runs away to rape & kill others they will have NOTHING to cross check any DNA with.

This Wade is a COLD BLOODED killer & rapist. If he they let him get away with what he did to Stacey come July 2006 he will be filling up this missing & murdered persons web site with woman that were little kids when he killed Stacey.

We have tried everything we know to do. We cannot get then to do anything about Stacey.

And cannot even get the State of Ohio to put his DNA into Coadus.

Please at least try to help us Sign the petition we have to have all the names signed by June 2005.

Thank you

xx Woman reported missing in 1996 was killed, prosecu
« Reply #7 on: Nov 4th, 2005, 06:45am »

CLEVELAND - A former clerk for a fast-food restaurant reported missing in 1996 is now considered dead, and authorities on Thursday accused a man she worked with of killing her.

Stacey Balas, 25, was killed Nov. 26, 1996, after she left her job at a Subway Sandwich Shop in the Cleveland suburb of Fairview Park, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor William A. Mason said.

The woman's family had held out hope that she was alive.

Larry Wade, 46, an inmate at Madison Correctional Institution serving a 10-year term for gross sexual imposition, attempted rape and kidnapping, was charged with aggravated murder. He is to be arraigned Monday. He is due for parole June 7, 2007.

Mason said police in Fairview Park and another suburb, North Ridgeville, where Balas lived, along with lawyers in his office recently began taking another look at the case.

Mason said he could not reveal what new details authorities have about the case.

"Based on the information we now have obtained, we believe she is dead," Mason said. "We don't have a body and we don't know if it ever will be recovered. It probably went to a landfill somewhere."

Rick Bell, an assistant prosecutor, said authorities have placed greater weight on a statement from Wade's wife, who told investigators she remembers finding a credit card and unfamiliar car keys in her husband's clothing.

The key belonged to a Nissan Pathfinder that Balas had driven and was found four blocks from where she worked. The credit card was used three times a few days after she was reported missing.

A green shirt worn by Subway employees that would have fit Balas also was found with Wade.

Information about the shirt and card had been known to police in the weeks after Balas was reported missing.

Larry Wade, 46, an inmate at Madison Correctional Institution, is serving a 10-year term for gross sexual imposition, attempted rape and kidnapping.

At the video arraignment from the Cuyahoga County Jail before Judge Mike Donnelly, Wade pleaded innocent to aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and kidnapping. Bond was set at $500,000.

Prosecutors have not said what new evidence that they have discovered that led to Wade's arrest.

xx Stacey and Me
« Reply #12 on: Feb 21st, 2006, 08:51am »

Leila Atassi

Recently, I recognized a familiar face smiling out at me from a newspaper story.

It was Stacey Balas, a young woman missing for nine years without a trace. The cold case was reopened with new evidence and a possible confession to her murder. Authorities believe career criminal Larry Wade, 46, who worked with the victim at a Subway sandwich shop in Fairview Park, strangled her from behind at work and dumped her body in a trash receptacle.

When I was a kid, Stacey Balas was my favorite baby sitter.

I read the story with the inquisitiveness of a reporter and the anxiety of a young woman who sometimes walks alone through parking lots after dark. But at the core of that was grief.

When Stacey baby-sat for my two siblings and me, I would watch her intently as she did her homework, figuring long division in college-ruled notebooks and reading history from fat high school textbooks covered in brown paper. I asked her to cover my dictionary in brown paper, too, and I turned each page along with her, studying my idol, Stacey, with more purpose than the words I was still too young to read.

She secretly slipped me tiny sample tubes of lipstick and eye shadow that matched hers. She let me sit next to her and watch TV. She never tired of playing with Barbie dolls, even when I told her she had to be Barbie's boyfriend, Ken.

Stacey lived down the street, and her grandma was our next-door neighbor. When I saw Stacey around the neighborhood or at the local swimming pool, I proudly pointed her out to my friends, beaming with satisfaction when she stopped to say hi. I loved seeing her with prom dates in her grandma's front yard, climbing into limos in puffy taffeta dresses -- the kind that homecoming queens flaunted in the 1980s.

A red carpet could not have made Stacey Balas more of a celebrity in my world.

But after this, almost every bit of Stacey's story is tragic. In 1988, she suffered a serious head injury in a car wreck that left her in a coma for weeks and in an unending state of recovery.

Although Stacey's mobility and strength eventually returned, her mental faculties -- her ability to reason and the candid, witty personality that made her so cool -- had dulled.

No one knows whether Stacey's diminished cognitive capability played a role the night she disappeared in 1996 -- vanished like dew burned off the front lawn by a rising sun. But for every one of the nine years that followed, her family suffered a thousand deaths, searched alone in some of Cleveland's darkest corners, lost lucidity on futile leads.

And in nine years, I grew up. I didn't need a baby sitter anymore, but I thought of Stacey often and prayed in every way I knew how that my "big sister" would be found alive.

I'm 25 now, the age Stacey was when she disappeared. My colleagues are some of those who chronicled the search. Some of them kept looking for answers long after the police ran out of answers to give. Stacey's parents kept looking, too -- many nights, relinquishing sleep to canvass for traces of Stacey. Time might have weathered their memory but never their resolve.
It is said that nine years of not knowing stunts grief at the stage of denial, leaves you at the fringes of real bereavement. Only with a murderous confession, such as the one that came, is it possible for the family to walk head-on into that pain. But with it comes a surge of images: a stealthy attack, strangulation, the violent cessation of life. Are those truths easier to embrace than the mystery of Stacey's absence?

Just after Stacey's disappearance, my brother and I gathered a small ensemble to sing at a candlelight vigil held on the edge of our quiet North Ridgeville neighborhood. As we sang to dozens of Stacey's family members and friends, gathered in a semi-circle that looked like a frown, somber faces glowed by candlelight. My eyes met those of Stacey's dad, Dave, who nodded my way and lowered his head, as if hearing his daughter's eulogy years before he was ready.

We sang: Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain, though your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone.

It's a song I still sing to myself, almost instinctively, when driving alone on some desolate highway, though Stacey would tell me that at 25, I'm too old to still be afraid of the dark.

xx Man pleads guilty to killing North Ridgeville woma
« Reply #13 on: May 16th, 2006, 09:43am »

CLEVELAND -- He was accused of killing a North Ridgeville woman who he worked with at a fast food restaurant nearly 10 years ago.
Today, Larry Wade pleaded guilty to the crime.
Wade worked with Stacey Balas at Subway in Fairview Park in 1996. Prosecutors said he killed her and may have dumped her body in a landfill.

The case went unsolved for nine years until authorities named Wade as a suspect last year.
He originally pleaded not guilty to the charge, but today changed his plea. Stacey's parents pleaded with the judge to give him the maximum sentence.

Wade, who is already serving a 10 year sentence for kidnapping and attempted rape, was sentenced to life in prison.

He won't be eligible for parole until after he's served 20 years.

xx Balas killer convicted; gets 20 years to life in
« Reply #14 on: Jun 16th, 2006, 11:53am »

Chris Powell
The Chronicle-Telegram
The family whose daughter was killed nearly a decade ago finally got justice.
Larry Wade, 46, entered a guilty plea in a Cuyahoga County courtroom Thursday to an aggravated murder charge and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
Stacey Balas disappeared Nov. 25, 1996, but Wade was not charged with killing her until late last year. He admitted to investigators last year that he strangled her and dumped her body in a trash bin after she rebuffed his advances.
“There is no closure,” said Dave Balas, Stacey Balas’ stepfather. “We know what happened now, but it’ll never be closed. We can’t get her body.”
Investigators have speculated that Stacey Balas’s body was probably buried in a landfill.
Dave Balas said the guilty plea and sentencing brought some relief to his family.
“We don’t know where her body is, but we know where her soul is and that she’s not coming home.”
For years, Stacey’s mother, Lynn Balas, searched for her daughter and always held out hope that she would come home one day.
Dave Balas said the family spoke with Wade.
“He apologized to us, but I don’t know if he’s capable of having any feelings after all this,” he said. “I told him he’s got to face one more sentencing and that will be after he passes away. He’s going to end up where he’s going and I told him that.”
Balas said it was a bitter-sweet day for his family.
“It’s all very hard to explain what we’re feeling,” he said. “We were glad to see he cooperated and that he’s going away for the rest of his life and is going to pay for what he did.”
Stacey Balas was last seen in Fairview Park, but North Ridgeville police became involved because the family lived there at the time.
Police investigators began to believe it was more than a missing person case when Stacey’s sports utility vehicle was found several days after her disappearance with her purse inside. Police looked at a variety of suspects before focusing on Wade.
Stacey, who had been an honor student, was 25 when she vanished but had the mental capacity of a 15-year-old due to a head injury she suffered in a traffic accident.
Wade quickly became a suspect. An IOU for $200 signed by Wade was found in Stacey’s SUV, located at the Cleveland Motel about eight blocks from the Subway
