It was Sept 12th , 1987 when there was big news out of Mckean County Pa. when a security guard and $250,000.00 dollars in Platinum went missing from a Corning Glass Facility
Dale Kerstetner was working by himself as a Security / Maintenance man in the plant when he is seen talking to a masked man who has apparently broken into or was let into the plant by Dale .
a $250,000.00 dollar Platinum Pipe from one of the furnaces would go missing as would Dale
was he a victim of a crime as the above missing person piece suggests or was he a willing accomplice who was double crossed and murdered. Or was the whole thing a charade to make everyone think he is dead and gone. $250,000 even then was alot of money but not life changing money and they got no where near that when they sold it on black market so one has to wonder.
The case even caught the attention of Robert Stack and his NBC Unsolved Mysteries program which was in production at the time but to this day there have been no leads .
Dales if he is even still alive he would be in his 80's and statute of limitations has long run out. Surprisingly not much attention has come of this case all these years later.
as with so many cases.
