Minisode: The Vanishing of Mary Kushto

Hi Guise and welcome back to did youlock the door, the PODCAST, I'm your host, Payton reace, and I'm all by mylonesome today, noco host. Today, I'm going to be bringing you guys, anotherMinnesoe, my second one. It's going to be a Minisote, because there is not awhole lot of information out on this case. I actually only could find aboutfour different sources and I think, with cases like that, it's especiallyimportant to bring them to light because they tend to have the leastamount of people talking about them. So without further ado, let's get into thecase of Mary Teresa Kushto,...

...so Mary Teresa Casto was born in Augusteighteenth nineteen, fifty four, admittedly Mary did have issues withprescription drug abuse so after the birth of her third little boy in anattempt to get better Mary decided to check into a rehabilitation centeroutside of Philadelphia Pennsylvania where her and her three little boyslived with Mary's mother, while she was there Mary met a mannamed Gy Kashto. He had checked himself into the center to hopefully help himwith his addiction to alcohol. The two fell in love hard and fast, pretty soonfinding themselves, married shortly after their five year anniversary guywould get a job as an iron worker at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.After some searching the couple settled on moving to Saint Cloud Florida, whichis about half an hour to a forty five minute drive from where universal is the couple stayed with their friends.Another couple named Alice and Bill Marshall until they found a place oftheir own to rent...

...guy said that on the drivedown fromPennsylvania, Mary could not stop saying that guy was quote her bestfriend and we would have a happy life together in Florida endquote, as weoften see in cases such as this one that wouldn't come to fruition. However,the couple would separate not long after arriving. Reportedly Mary hadbeen living in a motel with friends for a short time. The evening of May Fourth Nineteen.Ninety eight Mary had plans to go out to a local bar called Cindy's loungewith some friends and reportedly also a new boyfriend that she'd been seeing.Cindy's lounge actually doesn't exist any more. When I looked at pictures ofthe street view, it appears to now be a cute little thrift store calledAnnabels, but anyway, Mary, her friends and her potential new Beau were goingto kind of get their drink on and then go to a party with some other friendsin the early hours of Ma. Fifth, at around one thirty am so now we are ontomayfifth. Mary reportedly began arguing...

...with her boyfriend. The argument grewmore and more heated until Mary stormed out of the bar and into the night,never to be seen again after not hearing from Mary for severaldays, some of her friends reached out to the police to let them know what hadhappened. Unfortunately, their claims would not be immediately takenseriously, not until May twenty ninth, when guy finally alerted the police tothe fact that his wife had vanished reportedly. After doing so, he himselfmade a visit to Cindy's lounge, which was the bar where Mary had vanishedfrom and upon arriving. He told the bartender that his wife was missing andquote, had probably been raped or is somewhere dead, endquote. The marshals,who were the couple that Mary and guy had been staying with, began, passingout fliers with Mary's name and picture on them. Bill Marshall told the OrlandoSentinel quote: She was the type of person who would give you anything sheowned if Hou wanted it. She was quit a...

...strangers, but when she got to know youshe was open. She was like a kid really we'd say: Let's go to the beach andshe'd get excited endute. His wife Alice said that Mary would neverdisappear in her children. Despite the fact that they were still living inPennsylvania with Mary's mother, she wrote to them all the time Alice statedquote: She loved her three boys and her mother. Just before she disappeared.She gave me a letter to them to mail endquote. I wish th T. I had more evidence that Icould go into with you guys, but I mean I'm sure that, as always, there's somethe police have that we aren't aware of but other than everything that I'vetold you thus far. There is nothing more really aside from suspects whichwe will get into, but there's really nothing more to discuss in the case ofMary Casctel. Absolutely no trace of her has been seen since one thirty amthe morning of May Fifth Nineteen. Ninety eight...

...so now, like I said we are going tomove into suspects, the first and most obvious one. I'm sure you guys canguess it is her husband, gi, Kushto, well, friends and family say that guywas verbally and sometimes even physically, abusive to Mary GuyMaintains that they fought like any couple but loved each other. At the endof the day, in talking to the police, Guy admitted that the couple hadrecently fallen on hard times so much so in fact, that guy was no longer ableto afford his K K, K membership card that should give a sultent insight intothe kind of person that guy was guy also suggested that alligator lake,which is where the Motel of Mary was staying wit, her friends, was located,might be a good place to hide a body when asked about Guy Sergeant, FranReinhardt, who was one of the initial officers assigned to Mary. His casestated quote: He has cooperated with us.

He let us search the trailer he wasrenting and his car and hes volunteer to take a voice stress test endquote.He also said, however, that they have eluminated no suspects since thereis, really not that muchinformation out about this case. That's all that we know on guy I mean, I think,the fact that friends and family maintained that he was pretty abusiveto marry the fact that they were separated and Marid had just started.Seeing a new boyfriend all point to him. Definitely having a motive to dosomething to her his KK K membership definitely doesn'tpull in his favor. Obviously, everyone is innocent untilproven guilty, but guy does seem to make a pretty good suspect in this case. The next uspect that we're going toMoveon to is a fellow by the name of Christopher Bello. Christopher bellowhas long been suspected by authorities...

...of being a sterial killer. He is knownto have been in certain areas at the same time that several young women havevanished. He was in fact in sint cloud Florida in May of nine teen. Ninetyeight. He is also previously plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter inthe suspected murder of his mistress Catherine Fetzer. We'll get into thatcase a little bit just to give you guys some background. Catherine was lastseing at her home in Mantina, Ohio by her husband on November, twenty sixth,nine teen. Ninety one. She left him a note saaying that she was feelingrestless, so she was going to go to a local mall just to kind of get out ofthe house when she failed to come home. That night, her husband called thepolice to report her missing her blue ninetee and eighty five. Four tempowould soon be found about twenty five miles from her house. Some ofCatherine's friends quickly told the police that they knew that she washaving an affair and that that affair was with none other than chriss bellow. Additionally, an acquaintance of Christestified that he had been with hers...

...when he abandoned the vehicle, while Chris would initially proclaimhis innocence. He eventually confessed that he had shot. Catherine in hisapartment, which was also located in Medina and had disposed of. Her remainsin a trashman. Catherine's body has never been found. Other disappearances that Chris isbelieved to have been involved in include Christina Porco, whodisappeared from Hilton head South Carolina N, Onine Hunde, an eighty sixshelen feryl. He disappeared from Pika Ohio, N on nine utered andninety fourand Heather Tig, who disappeared from spotsill Kentucky Ne hsn, nine Hutdren,and ninety five Chris appears to be a pretty goodsuspect. He was in the right place at the wrong time or we could say thewrong place at the wrong time and all of his victims, both assumed andconfirmed, have yet to be found honestly, aside from hidden kilkits,cris below kind of reminds me of Israel...

...keys. Currently, he is in jail after beingfound guilty of another man's slaughter charge. He will be up for Alease inOctober of twosenty twenty one. If you're interested you can find hisprofile on write a prisoner com, the only other suspects are theboyfriend or a perpetrator that we are still unaware of. As far as I can tell,the boyfriend's name has never been reported or stated publicly, I'massuming I'm hoping that the police know who he is, and that he's beenthoroughly vetted. It is, of course, always suspicious when someone goesmissing after getting into a fight with their a significant other, so theboyfriend, whoever he is, would definitely be someone to look at. It's also possible that Mary wassnatched off the street by someone passing by I've actually been to sintcloud Florida, I'm Aford a native. Even today, the streets of Saint Cloud arenot very well D at night. In fact, they're actually pretty dark. So,especially back, I nine Tuteen an...

...ninety eight. I think it's totallypausible that Mary was either forced into a vehicle or got into one of herown accord, and no one else noticed a thing when she was last seen. Mary waswearing a black blouse and jeans. She stood at five six weighed about onhundred and twenty pounds had brown, hair and Brown eyes.
