On July 4, a car was off State Road 315 near Orange Springs, Florida and came to rest in some brush. Rhonda Bailey, who was sitting on her porch at the time and watched the accident happen, said two women clambered from the car, throwing beer cans into the woods and swearing at each other. The two women begged Bailey not to call the police, saying her father lived just up the road. They got back in the car to leave but the car didn't make it far. A phone call was made about the crash. Hubert Hewett of the Orange Springs Volunteer Fire Department asked the two women if they had been the ones in the car. They cursed at him and said no and told them to leave them alone. Marion County sheriff's deputies found the car on the side of the road. It was a 1988 Pontiac Sunbird, gray with four doors. The glass in the front doors, as well as the windshield, was smashed. There were apparent bloodstains throughout the interior, and the license plate was missing. A computer search on the car identified that the car belonged to Peter Siems, who had disappeared on June 7 after leaving his home in Jupiter, Florida to visit relatives in Arkansas. Peter Siems was a 65 year old retired merchant seaman who devoted most of his time to a Christian outreach ministry. John Wisnieski of the Jupiter Police, had been working the case since Siems was reported missing. He sent out a nationwide teletype containing descriptions of two women that were suspects. He also sent a synopsis of the case and sketches of the women to the Florida Criminal Activity Bulletin. He was not optimistic about finding Siems alive. Peter Siems was 65 years old and found dead June of 1990. His body was never found.
