A Fort Bliss Soldier’s disappearance may have a new lead, thanks to a woman who claims to have some information.
The vanishing of Private Richard Halliday, which became a public affair after he disappeared in late July, has captivated a Texas military community whose installation has developed a bad reputation for criminal acts and missing military personnel.
Halliday’s family, who have not gotten many leads on the case, went so far as to investigate across the border in Mexico.
Now, one woman, who asked to adopt the pseudonym “Jane” for security reasons, told KSTM that she matched up with a Soldier -who knew Halliday- on a dating app.
“I had been on some dating apps,” Jane said. “I found that I had matched with him.”
While on a date at a local Sonic, the Soldier in question produced an ID and credit cards that belonged to Halliday.
“When he opened his wallet, all his cards fell,” she said. “So when all the cards fell out, he grabbed one and said I need to hide this one. It’s from the missing Soldier.”
According to the soldier, Halliday had fled to Cancun with his girlfriend and wanted the military to think he was in El Paso, so he tasked the Soldier with using his cards in-town.
Offering a $25,000 reward for Halliday, the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command stated that they looked into the allegations.
“We are fully aware of the allegations and have conducted extensive investigative activity surrounding the allegations and continue to do so.”
