He was never heard from again and in 2014 a human torso was found along the Ohio River by a local police chief on patrol
After DNA testing they have been confirmed as those of Dan Niehaus
Dans house is aprox. a 1/2 mile walk to the Allegheny River which if he jumped in and committed suicide which is possible if he did not know how to swim or bound rocks to him self but that does not seem logical for those who knew him he did not seem the type of guy who would commit suicide but would explain how his body got there.
More likely if your going to commit suicide your going to jump further down the river from Highland Park Bridge. So whole thing is still an open matter and un natural causes is still open.
I do not buy suicide in the case of the young man from south side either. and still believe both these and several other deaths and disappearances have something more sinister going on. Including a rumor of gang going around and robbing and killing and dumping bodies in the rivers. and do not forget the Smiley Face killers I wrote about as well might not be just young men they are after.
We have answers but more questions than answers and thats whats disturbing with whats been going on around here.
