Suitcase mystery solved
Otis Hair is, in fact, alive. I passed this information along to the reporter, who emailed me back and said that a relative of Otis Hair's had contacted Sgt. Katz. They moved Otis to a nursing home over the summer and that is when the suitcase was lost. So it will be returned to Otis soon. YEAH! Thank you everyone for all the hard work! Great job!
