Details of Disappearance
Zebb Quinn was last seen on January 2, 2000 at 9:00 p.m. at Wal-mart on Hendersonville road in Asheville. He planned to go look at a Mitsubishi Eclipse with a co-worker, but as the two headed down Long Shoals Road, Quinn got a page and said he had to go. He was last seen at 9:15 p.m. at a Citgo station on Hendersonville Road.
Quinn took no clothes, no contact lens solution, no extra money — nothing that would indicate he was going away.
Two weeks after his disapearance, his car was located in a parking lot of the Little Pigs Barbecue on McDowell Street in Asheville area.
Inside the 1990 Mazda Protégé were a motel key card, a Labrador-mix puppy and a jacket that did not belong to Quinn. On the back window, someone had drawn lips with orange-pink lipstick. The driver’s seat was close to the steering wheel, indicating a shorter person was driving.
Police used ground-piercing radar to search a property off Owens Cove Road in April 2007. Nothing is known of the results at this time.
Foul play is suspected.
