Dawn's Plot Swap

Need a plot ? Take one
Have you seen a news story that got your wheels turning?
Do you have a plot in your head that would make a great story, just not one you intend to write?
Leave it here on Fridays
pick up a plot for your weekend writing time.
Here is what I have for you this Friday:
Some old style mysteries.
The intriguing story of the Sodder Family. A fire destroyed their home in the early hours of Christmas morning in 1945. Four of the nine children in the home made it out. No remains were found of the other five. Did they perish in the fire or was the fire started to cover another crime?
The odd account of Robert "Curt" Burton, Jr. He was listed as MIA in Vietnam. So, why does his family believe he is alive and well in the United States? Why did supposed government officials approach his father and eventually provide him with considerable compensation to have Curt declared dead? Why was his cousin accosted at gunpoint after running a credit check on Curt's social security number? Is he one of the many lost in Vietnam or part of a government cover up?
and, what happened to Cynthia Anderson, a law clerk who had told family members of horrible dreams about being abducted. In August of 1981, co-workers arrived to find her office exactly as it should be in the middle of the day... except she was gone and hasn't been seen since. Mysterious phone calls, drug dealing co-workers and a romance novel left open to an abduction scene. Do they add up to foul play?

So, swap with me!
Got any old mysteries in your inspiration file?
Have an theories on these?
Well! I'm impressed with all three story lines. I wish I could share plots with you.
My critique partner has them lined up like soldiers, just waiting for her to do her magic. Me? It's one at a time, and after I finish a book, I go for days absolutely positive I'll never have another original idea!
Great blog, Dawn. I enjoy dropping by to see what you're doing!
Oh man, these get my writer juices flowing!! Especially the one about the kids missing.
I love mysteries, since I was old enough to watch Scooby Doo! I'm gonna have to read up on these. Great fodder here.
I read not too long ago about a missing college student about to be married. They finally found her in the wall of the lab at her college. The custodian was arrested for her murder, but isn't the custodian always the Patsy?
Whoa, all of those sent a chill up my spine.
And the grad student who was murdered is a little too close for comfort...I work in a lab like that, and it was one of the lab animal technicians who killed her...I am always a little leery and verrrry verrrry nice when I go down to check on my mice!
I remember following the storyline of the college student. So sad.
Yes, Teri, you need to be extra nice to those Animal lab people!
