Nearly 15 years after the body of 17-year-old Daniel Violette Jr. was found in a Norwich Township field, the case remains a mystery.

Violette was a junior at Willard High School and attended classes at Pioneer Joint Vocational School in Shelby.

He reportedly was last seen the evening of Oct. 24, 1998 at a grocery in Willard. Nearly two weeks later, his body was discovered about 75 feet off Townline Road 12 by a farmer.

This week, authorities discussed this case for a front-page story in Saturday's Norwalk Reflector. It's the final installment of a three-part series about unsolved deaths in Huron County.
