Bill and Lorraine Currier vanished from their Essex home on June 8, 2011. The next day, police were calling their disappearance suspicious.
"They left their medications behind. Medications that they needed to take daily and it looks as though they left rather hastily," Essex Police Cpl. Christina Ashley said June 9.
JUNE 10, 2011: CURRIERS' CAR FOUND
The couple's car turned up abandoned at an apartment complex a few miles from their home two days after the Curriers vanished, prompting their families to plead for the public's help.
"We are heartbroken by their disappearance and at a loss to explain or understand it. We're here today to plead for anyone's help in doing this and please keep Bill and Lorraine Currier in your prayers," Bill Currier's sister Diana Smith said June 12.
JUNE 14, 2011: "PERSON OF INTEREST"
On June 14, police announced they had a "person of interest." Investigators said an eyewitness put a man shown in a police sketch in the Curriers' dark green Saturn sedan after they went missing.
"We don't think he's a serious public safety concern at this point," Essex Police Lt. George Murtie said June 15.
In the months to come, police launched several foot searches with cadaver dogs. No major breaks and no activity on their cellphones or credit cards made a safe homecoming less likely.
JULY 18, 2011: FOUL PLAY IS SUSPECTED
And July 18, this announcement from Essex Police Chief Brad LaRose: "Foul play in the Currier case is suspected."
Police hoped to crack the case by sending DNA evidence found in the couple's car and home to an out-of-state government lab.
OCT. 12, 2011: DOCUMENTS UNSEALED
Unsealed court papers revealed that investigators seized military and personal documents, clothing, notebooks and computer hard drives from the couple's home. But it was a clue buried in the couple's cellphone records that told police they needed to expand their search area.
"This cone here in yellow is the possible area of the location of the cellphone when the connection to this tower was made," LaRose said Oct. 25.
The 10th and largest ground search was launched, but no new clues surfaced.
FEB. 7, 2012: POLICE PURSUE BURGLARY SUSPECT
In February, investigators got a court order to take finger and palm prints from a man who police say burglarized the Curriers' home.
APRIL 13, 2012
