I am surprised people that are familiar with the victims are not contributing more.This makes at least 2 victims at the address of eleven.I have to wonder if Albert was also a soccer player like the other NY victim-Adam Falcon.

Does anyone know his middle name?If it starts with a D than there is matching initials in a different state where another young man disappeared.

According to this press release from Clarkson University, Albert's middle initial is "C." I have yet to find what it stands for.
