From 1993-2009 AMW aired the case of fugitive Michele Comstock. In 1990, Comstock drove from a Tucson, Arizona bar intoxicated and crashed into a living room. The impact killed a five-year old boy. Comstock was released but was convicted in 1992.
Around Late 1994, Comstock was arrested by authorities in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico on a minor drug charge. At the time, she may have been supporting herself through the illegal drug trade. Another piece of information was that Comstock was receving chemotheraphy for Hodgkin's disease shortly before she went on the run. Also, the car Comstock crashed in Arizona was owned by a Oscar Millan who investigators believed was Comstock's boyfriend. Millan was believed to be in Mexico with Comstock, engaging in narcotics activity and as far as I can tell, he was never located.
At this point I believe Comstock is dead and there are a few possibillities as to why. First, she may have died from Hodgkins disease under an alias and was buried somewhere in Mexico. Second, Oscar Millan killed Comstock because she was drawing too much attention to him in the early-mid 90s. Third, Millan may have been killed or kidnapped for some reason and Comstock was killed as a result. If any of those are true then it would be almost impossible for Mexico to locate her remains after all these years.
She's more than likely dead. Just looking at her pictures, you could tell she was just destroying herself with drugs and alcohol. If the theories regarding her boyfriend aren't true, I'd still say its probable she succumbed to health problems.
A forum reader sent me something I found interesting. Someone did a family tree website and included a Michele Denise Comstock in the family tree. This Michele Denise Comstock is listed as having been born on June 28th, 1963. If you recall, Comstock was 27 years old at the time of the fatal crash in 1990 so the age matches up (go to AMW.COM's archive page to see). And, according to a Tucson, Arizona article, fugitive Michele Comstock's date of birth? June 28th, 1963.
It could be they were filling out the family tree so they felt obligated to list her regardless of whether they know where she is or not, but I did find it peculiar unlike other members they didn't list her birth location. And perhaps they wouldn't know but she is also not listed as deceased.
I do find it weird Comstock is no longer on the Tucson's Most Wanted website though.
As I said, perhaps they're nice people and were just listing her out of obligation since she is in their tree. I just think this does match up to our fugitive.
In any case, this isn't a sighting or anything and I'm sure authorities already knew her family (otherwise I wouldn't have posted this. If anyone thinks this still gives too much away let me know and I'll remove it), just thought would be interesting to share.
