In January 2000, a North Carolina teenager named Zebb Quinn received a phone call. He panicked and then, seemingly without a trace, he disappeared. Several people of interest were immediately named in his case, but despite an incredibly careful investigation by local authorities, no one ever confessed to the crime. Still, in the summer of 2015, something happened that threw a major wrench into everything that police had once believed about Quinn’s disappearance.
Curious about what happened to Zebb? Keep reading to find out! And just wait until you see slide 2… you’ll never believe what really went down!
#12 Zebb Quinn
Zebb Quinn was just a normal, good guy. He had recently graduated from high school in the Asheville, North Carolina, area, and was working at a local Walmart to pay his way through college. He had even saved up enough money to purchase his first care. For Zebb, things were looking up!
#11 Robert Jason Owens
Zebb’s good friend, Robert Jason Owens, was also a recent graduate from Asheville. On the night of January 2, he had made plans to meet up with Zebb in the parking lot at Walmart before heading out to look at a car that Zebb was considering purchasing. Unfortunately, they would never make it there.
#10 Setting The Scene
Quinn and Owens traveled peacefully down the road for several miles. Quinn led at the front. Suddenly, he blinked his lights, signaling for Owens to pull over. Quinn then explained that he had received a page and needed to return the call. As he headed inside a gas station, Owens waited outside.
#9 Beep Beep Beep
Suddenly, Quinn appeared at Owen’s window. He said he needed to return home immediately. She shuffled back to his car and sped out of the parking lot. While later recounting the event, Owens claimed that his friend was “visibly shaken.” Apparently, that page had a lot more meaning to it than was originally believed!

Because Quinn was in such a hurry to get back home to Asheville, he bumped into the back of Owen’s care on the way out. He didn’t stop to offer to pay for the damages or to even apologize. Whatever was said to him on the phone must have truly been important!
