This is the sixth of my “Missing in Connecticut Series.” I will be introducing you to the missing people of Connecticut every Wednesday (according to this list on CharleyProject: http://www.charleyproject.org/geo/eastern.html ). Please see my history for the previous submissions and share your thoughts about this case below! Kevin John Belknap was born on May 24, 1950. He was 5’10 and between 185 and 190 pounds. He was white. His brown hair was going gray. Some sources state he had brown eyes, others state they were hazel. The only identification information on file in this case is dental records. Kevin was a blackjack dealer at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The casino is located on the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Reservation. 25% of the casino’s revenue goes to the state; as of 2007 that amounted to $200 million. Foxwoods is much more than a casino - it also has hotels, fine dining, and shopping. There is another popular casino nearby, Mohegan Sun. If this sounds like an advertisement, I’ll admit that I am one of the many people who enjoys going occasionally (although I am in no way affiliated!). The Pequot Museum is nearby, it’s the largest Native American museum in the world, and it rocks. If you are ever in the area, you should definitely check the area out! 83 current or past employees rated Foxwoods on GlassDoor and gave it a 2.9 out of 5 for overall work environment. One common complaint listed is that there is not a lot of upward mobility at the casino and that tribal members are preferred for positions over other people. Was Kevin unhappy with his job? Kevin had just gotten off of work on April 8, 2001. He was last seen at his residence at 20 Cutler Street in Stonington, Connecticut at 5:00 pm that day. The house can be seen here to give context to his case: http://bit.ly/2deWNJT. Stonington is a small coastal tone. It serves as the backdrop to the 2012 film Hope Springs if you are interested in getting a visual of the area! Kevin has never been seen or heard from again. His wife reported him missing four days later on April 12, 2001. What was the state of Kevin’s marriage like? Was there some marital unhappiness? Why did she take so long to report the man as missing? Or, was it that he ‘disappeared’ often? Or did the police give her difficulty in reporting him missing? (Some jurisdictions seem to make people wait for long periods before making official reports.) His blue 1998 Buick LeSabre was later found abandoned in the vicinity of Watch Hill in Rhode Island. According to google maps, this trip would take about 12 to 20 minutes during 5:00 traffic on a weekday (this assumes that he left right after he was supposedly last seen.) Watch Hill is an exclusive, wealthy coastal village located in Westerly, Rhode Island. The village is filled with sprawling Victorian-style cottages which may look modest, but are extremely expensive. Taylor Swift, Conan O’Brien, Henry Ford (of Ford Motors,) and Clark Gable are only some of the town’s past and present residents. Kevin’s car was unlocked and his work uniform was left in it. There was no other sign of him at the scene. A search was conducted of the surrounding land and sea but nothing was located. Bolleswoods commented stating that despite the wealth of the area, the beaches are public. Due to the fact that it was April, they may not have been populated heavily at the time. This is especially true when you consider the fact that it was cold and windy on the day he went missing (thanks deeperintomovies for looking it up.) She states that one beach in particular, Napatree Point is long and isolated. It has an abandoned fort from the 1900s with underground tunnels. She posits that if Kevin wanted to take his life, it may have been a good place to do so. Did Kevin run away from an unhappy life? Did he have a mental break which prompted his leaving? Did he take his own life? Did Kevin’s disappearance have to do with his job at the casino? Did he anger a wealthy client and get lured back to Watch Hill to face the consequences? If that was the case, why was his uniform located in his car? Why was there no other evidence? Could a murderer’s financial or social status make it easier to do away with a body? Does Watch Hill keep secrets for its residents? Hopefully this secret will be leaked someday. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/belknap_kevin.html Bolleswoods commented that [s]he used to live in Stonington and has family and friends who still do. According to their dad community belief is that Kevin ran away from a girlfriend and is no longer considered missing. He is still listed as actively missing on some sites including the Charleyproject (hence my post,) NamUs, etc. I am not sure how frequently the sites are updated, though. Perhaps that is the informal, popular belief and police haven't found evidence so they have to keep the case open.
[CONTEST] Who gives free things on your birthday? Planning a royal procession.
So my amazing friend got me a spa package at Mohegan Sun Casino in CT as a birthday gift. She decided we should go around and see how much free stuff we can get. I know the Sephora does a free gift(our main destination after the spa). Any other stores? Bonus if it's in the casino or Foxwoods/MGM Grand Casino(both have malls and stuff), or in SECT. Any websites? Who should I sign up for now to get a gift? Include Reddit phrase "ALL THE FREE THINGS" if I can't decide. Contest ends on my cakeday, March 3 a week before my cakeday on 2/[email protected]. Winner(s) will receive an item off their list of my choosing (I like surprising!). Edit: Bumped up the due date, because I'm too impatient with gift giving to wait that long! edit2: I will be posting winners ASAP. Can do that type of WL shopping on my phone, so when I can get to a computer Ill get it all straightened out!
Read more WarmDeck stories here: www.degenlife.com Roulette Fun This story takes place December 2011. I plan a trip to the casino with my GF and some others. I thought it would be nice to get everyone together for a night on me. So I invite my step-sister and her BF who I do side business with. Also her cousin which is my step fathers nephew, and his wife which is a long time friend of my GF. Poker Jay also weaseled his way in on this trip. So I head down with my GF and we get to Mohegan Sun at about 6PM. I was comped two regular rooms because of my players club card and check in. I drop bags in room and proceed downstairs with the $2k I brought. Lose my routine $40 shot at slots and head to a single-zero roulette wheel. During this time frame I believe I am a roulette wizard. I win almost every time I play and am up about $25k in past month and a half on roulette. I've only been playing it seriously for 2 months by the way. Good ole beginners luck. So I really believe in dealer signature, number pairing, and where they release ball. So I buy in for $500 in colored nickels. Watch a couple spins, then start placing numbers. I play sections and hit right way with $150 spread out for $700. A four chip number. Next couple spins I'm spreading out $300 or so and am breaking even on two chip numbers. Then hit a six chip number for $1050 and take $500 over. Cant remember exact number that just hit, but on the board the last time that number hit, 22 came after. So I loaded up 22 with $155 I think and about $500 total spread out. BANG! 22.. I take $5k over, tip the dealers, and spread the rest of my chips out. Was roughly $1k and I hit a 3 chip number for $525. I tell dealer to color me up for another purple and leave $40 for them. I'm pretty happy with this solid start to the trip. So now I head to the cage to cash in chips and ask for my $6k in all 20's. Yes twenties, I'm just in that kind of a mood. Wanted to feel like a real Big-Shot. I head over to pick up 4 comp tickets for the Jennifer Lopez show that night and head back to the lobby to meet my girl and everyone else who just arrived. Now a little background on my guests. My step-sister and I met in 2005 and hung out for a couple year mostly just on drinking nights. We don't necessarily get along as well anymore. Not sure the reason but she can be very fake. Her BF I've known for close to 2 years since they started dating and he sure knows how to burn money. I believe he blew close to $30k on blackjack and owed money everywhere. I would make money off him by bankrolling his weed plays and juice him on the front. We got along good but things got bad at a certain point about the money he owed me and him not having the weekly payments. Now my step-sisters cousin was a little older than me and I've never really liked him. He always gave off that dirtbag vibe. His wife I went to school with and she is very good friends with my girl. She is nice and we've always got along good. I actually banged her years before. Anyway I give them their room keys for the room they're sharing and flash my winnings. U could see the sour look in the eyes of both guys. We all head up to the rooms to get unpacked. Then I take them all down to the lounge so they can get drinks and eat before show. I also see my host while we are there and I try to give him a Christmas gift of a $200 gift card. I'm in the giving mood since my new found gold mine roulette has been so good to me. He tells me policy has changed, that he can't accept cash or gift cards. I end up giving it to my GF and tell her to use it for Christmas shopping. Poker Jay finally arrived and calls me looking for a C-note. I meet him, he's off to the 1-5 stud game and I'm off to the room to shower and get dressed while everyone else goes to the show. I get done and my GF and them are still in show so I call up my buddy Chris who lives near casino. I've known him for a couple years and we get along good. I stake him in poker sometimes and we party a lot. Overall he's a good guy. So him and Jay meet me back in the room and I get a couple grey goose bottles, carafe of OJ, and a carafe of cranberry sent up. I have Jay set up my stereo and we make drinks. We go downstairs to meet everyone after the show and have more drinks. Then the girls separate for dancing while the guys gamble. After a couple hours of playing like a maniac, I have only $3k left. I lost almost all my profit and gave my step-sisters BF a couple hundred to play with. Everyone had went back to the room by now and were going to sleep. Pic: Chris, Poker Jay, myself At this point I am determined to win my money back. Chris and I are only ones of our group still on gaming floor. He is just railing me on a roulette table. I buy in for $1k and am spreading $200 a spin. There is another gentleman on the table who is losing too. Dealer is bricking every spin for us. So by like the 4th spin I start to root for a number neither of us have as a joke. When it hits, the guy goes insane on me. I basically tell him to relax and if he can't handle losing he shouldn't gamble and laugh it off. He then goes "You think it's funny? I'll kick your ass!". He is older than me and has been drinking, definitely not a threat. But my buddy Chris jumps up in my defense like hes ready to fight the guy. Creates quite a scene and security comes. Security decides to tell me to leave the table and go to my room. There was some favoritism being played. I feel it was the age issue and security automatically assumes we were the problem. Chris ends up getting a 24 hour ejection and is escorted out as he curses at every security guard. They did let him go un-register for a tournament I pre-registered him for the next day. He's gone and I head back to room. Jay is in one bed sleeping and my GF is in other. I decide this is no fun so I head back downstairs to play blackjack on a table that a girl I've been talking to is dealing at. +$500 and a shoe and a half later, security comes up behind to tell me I'm gone. He states that he told me to return to my room and not come back down. I get a permanent ejection and have my photo taken. They escort me up to my room where I wake Jay and my GF telling them we have to leave. We pack and head down to valet. Its 4am and we all have been drinking so we do not want to take hour ride home. We get room down the street at a Holiday Inn. My girl goes right to bed, but Jay and I keep drinking. We take her keys and head down to the parking lot so we can head back to the casino to gamble. Retarded, yes I know. She calls my phone complaining about us trying to go back and demands we bring car back. She meets us in parking lot and says shes going home. We decide to stay with no car. I call up the dealer I've been talking to and have her meet me at Holiday Inn because she just got off work. I'm drunk and offer her a drink. She declines cause it's daylight out and I end up smashing it anyway. I then ask her for a ride back to the casino because I figure it will be a new security shift. I check into a comp room under my own name and head up the elevators. As soon as I turn corner off elevator, one of the lower level security guards who was present earlier while I was being ejected is waiting to go down. I tell him I had no place to stay and give him a $300 tip. He seems cool about it and lets us go. Twenty minutes later security is at our door. Fuck, gotta go I guess. They seem pretty irritated with me at this point. I try to leave, but they hold the elevator doors waiting for tribal police. They then held me until state police arrived, who gave me a simple trespass citation. Told me not to return and sent me off in a taxi. Well we could go home, but fuck it, I still wanna gamble. "Take me to the Bellissimo!" I demanded to the cab driver. This is a hotel near the neighboring casino Foxwoods. You might think why I didn't go there in the first place. I'm actually ejected from there at the time too. I check into the presidential suite and get a little sleep. That afternoon we wake up and call Chris because we have no car. He drives over to meet us. We call the girl dealer and all hang out. In the mean time I'm dealing with phone calls about my GF losing the $200 gift card I gave her and her cell phone being missing. Also I am missing a $300 pair of sunglasses I let my step-sisters cousin wear the night before. Eventually I find out he took them home and will give me them. Anyway I have like $2k on me and head to Foxwoods. I dust it off relatively quickly after food and drinks. We head back to the room and I decide to call another friend of mine from back home. He comes down to the casino to play poker daily, so I ask him to pick up $2k from my house and bring it down to me. He arrives a couple hours later. I head back to Foxwoods and straight to the single-zero wheel but decide to leave the cooler, AKA Poker Jay in the room. I let Chris play with $300 hoping he would have better luck than me. But he lost and said he was gonna take a walk. I buy in for $700 and about 12 spins later I had $10k in chips. I was relieved. I met Chris to grab a bite to eat, then he dropped me back off at the hotel. Went to sleep and the next day Chris gave us a ride back home. Also a side-note, after a month or so of investigating the missing gift card I was given what, where, and when the money was used. I concluded my step-sister had stole it as she spent some of the money off it on her Secret Santa gift selection at our family Christmas. After she spent weeks blaming her cousin and his wife claiming she knew for a fact but not to confront them about it because they gave her the $200 to repay me. Haven't talked to her since.
