48 HRS Tonite | Deep Secret Was A Missing Teen A Runaway Or The Victim Of A Serial Killer?


Was a missing teenager a runaway or the victim of a serial killer? Erin Moriarty reports, Tuesday, June 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

(CBS) Jeffrey Klee was a happy and popular teenager living with his family in Coral Springs, Fla. in 1977. On June 20, 1977, Jeff went drinking with his best friend, David Cusanelli, like he did on so many other summer nights - except this time, he never returned. Jeff simply vanished without a trace.

As a routine, authorities took a look at Jeff’s family and friends who had last seen him. Cusanelli told investigators that Jeff dropped him off and then headed home the night he disappeared and eventually investigators assumed Jeff had run away.

Through numerous false leads, the Klee family held out hope for a break in the case of their missing son. Years later Jeff’s sister, Laurel, received a letter from Attica State Prison saying that a convicted killer, Scott Rango, wanted to reach out her. Rango, who was serving a life sentence for killing a New York psychiatrist, had lived in Florida in 1977 even worked at restaurant only 500 yards away from where Jeff was hanging out the night he went missing. Authorities believed Rango knew something about what happened. However, just as police were starting to put the pieces together, they received news that Rango had killed himself inside his prison cell.

Did Jeff cross paths with the wrong person that fateful night? Was he one of Rango’s victims? Police thought they finally knew the truth, but decades later a startling confession and an amazing coincidence would reveal they were wrong. Finally, after 30 years, a deep secret would finally answer the question of what really happened to Jeff Klee.

Many thanks for the information; I will be watching 48 hours tonight. I am so sorry for his family and friends. I am sad for their mourning tears over the pointless and completely avoidable death of their beloved Jeff. I pray that he rests in peace.
Respectfully,
Reza Jou (missing Donna Jou’s dad)
