Case 126

Johnny Altinger

After 38-year-old Johnny Altinger goes on a date with a woman he met online, his friends start receiving strange emails. Things appear to have gone so well that Johnny decided to join the woman on an impromptu trip to Costa Rica. He even sends a resignation letter to his work, indicating that he has no immediate plans to return to Canada. 

Johnny’s friends aren’t buying it. They break into his apartment and find nothing to suggest that the trip ever took place. But if that’s the case, then what happened to Johnny?
