MONTICELLO, Ind. (August 24, 2015) -Friends and family of a 27-year-old Monticello man who was found dead in an Indianapolis pond Friday are seeking answers. Nick Spitzer went missing earlier last week and the circumstances behind his disappearance are raising eyebrows.
Scroll through his Facebook page and you’ll immediately see the hundreds of lives Spitzer touched.
Outside the salon in Monticello where he worked as a hair dresser, a few candles and flowers sat on the steps outside as a memorial.
Spitzer lived with his mother, Amy White-Spitzer in Monticello who in a statement to FOX59 wrote:
“He was a beautiful person who loved life. He had his life on track and knew what he wanted to do with it. He loved his family... and enjoyed the time he spent with us. He was loved and respected by his friends... and there are many.
He is loved and will be greatly missed by all of us.”
Spitzer headed to Indy last Friday to spend a few days with friends. Last known contact with Spitzer according to friends, was Sunday afternoon via Facebook messenger. But 48 hours later, on Tuesday, he hadn’t been heard from for days. His mom was worried and filed a missing persons report with Monticello Police.
Friday night, a man’s body was pulled from a retention pond on the north side of Indianapolis. That body, the next day was identified as Spitzer.
The coroner has not yet released information on time or cause of Spitzer’s death. Police have been trying to talk with people that Spitzer was with last weekend. Police are not elaborating though on what information those talks have produced.
