This is similar to D.B. Cooper in some aspects. Unlike D.B. Cooper who had a high probability of not surviving during his feat, we have every reason to suppose Conrad lived for many years under another identity and is possibly still enjoying his second life.

As a bank employee, one July day in 1969, his 20th birthday, he carried $215,000 in a bag and left without a trace. He has not been found ever since.

I was Ted Conrad's Newspaperboy when he lived on Detroit Road in Lakewood near Elbur Avenue. I've never posted anything about his story, nor did the police or FBI ever interview me. I was only 13 years old at the time, delivering the Cleveland Press in the afternoon. The week before the heist, I went to his apartment to collect my weekly $0.60 I heard voices in the apartment. I knocked loud enough that they heard me. I heard a "sushhh," and it got quiet. I knocked a few more times. No one answered the door. I returned the next day to find the door ajar. I called in and no one answered. I went in and found lots of beer bottles in the kitchen.

........We can only guess but our opinion is that someone put him up to the theft, perhaps to cover up an embezzlement by someone else, and then killed him.
Maybe the family is just trying to protect him... The "Newspaperboy"'s post would suggest Ted may have planned it with at least one other person.

Ted was not living in that apartment at the time of his disappearance. He was in an apartment on Clifton near 117th. That is also where they found his car.

The place was completely empty. I got a forwarding mail address from the apartment manager. The address was on Clifton Avenue, just east of W. 117th St. My father took me to the apartment. I knocked on the door. Ted Conrad opened the door. He seemed surprised to see me. I explained that he owed me about 5 weeks of dues for the paper. I remember he gave me a large bill and told me to "keep the change." That was the weekend before the heist. To this day I'm convinced that he planned the whole thing. (He was expecting to come into some money to give me a tip that was more than the amount he owed me for newspapers.) I've often wondered about him. I believe he survived the heist, and may indeed be alive today. It remains quite a mystery for a person to completely vanish without a trace. I think he will turn up somewhere, sometime.
