Remains found in the woods by a hunter in Juneau, Alaska are missing cruise ship passenger who has been missing since disappearance from cruise ship docked.
Jean Shaw says she went to take a nap in their cabin while the Cunard Line’s MS Sagafjord was docked in Juneau, Alaska on July 20, 1992. Her husband, Walter B. Shaw, 72, left their cabin, telling her he was going to go for a walk on deck. That was the last time she saw him.
When the ship was ready to depart for Ketchikan around 1600 hours, Jean Shaw looked for her husband and couldn’t find him. The ship’s crew paged him, couldn’t find him, then the ship left the port without him.
Police searched downtown, and say two witnesses indicated that they saw Shaw. The witnesses say Shaw told them that he came into town to mail letters and missed the departure of his ship.
The witnesses say he asked for directions to Ketchikan, Alaska 235 miles to the south. This doesn’t make any sense, because there is no way to get to Ketchikan by land. The only way there is by air or sea. This is a fact that surely the well-educated Shaw knew.
