SEPT. 8, 2015
Morten Aigeltinger is captured on store cameras just before 8 p.m. filling up his green Ford-150 truck at Sheetz in Manassas Park, Va. None of his credit cards or ATM card is used again. He apparently returns to his 19.5-acre property outside Charles Town – a remote home where the nearest neighbor is across busy W.Va. 9.
Aigeltinger leaves home around 6 a.m. for a photo shoot 55 miles away in Prince William County, Va., Gale Livingstone, his ex-girlfriend and housemate, tells police. He never shows up for the 1 p.m. assignment and has no contact with his employer – or anyone else.
Aigeltinger’s Ford-150 truck is discovered on John Rissler Road near the Shenandoah River – about a mile’s walk from the home he and Livingstone shared
Investigators from TV’s “Cold Justice” detail that cell phone tower data show a “ping” on Livingstone’s cell phone in the early morning hours of Sept. 9, 2015, on John Rissler Road – though Livingstone says she didn’t leave her home that night
Aigeltinger’s land has been placed under the care of Sheriff Pete Dougherty. Livingstone vacated the property and is operating a new farm in Prince George’s County, Md.
