Christopher Allen Zahl/NamUs

Christopher “Chris” Allen Zahl (Jan 11, 1951 – ?) was last seen alive on May 12, 1994, in Holmdel, Monmouth County, New Jersey, 07094.  He was 43 years old.

Chris is a tall white man with brown hair and blue eyes. He has a scar on his right knee. His disappearance is suspect and NamUs lists him as “Endangered Missing – Foul Play possible.”

Chris’ car was found May 13, 1994, at the Red Bank Train Station. Inside the car police found his glasses and wallet with credit cards. But no sign of Chris. What clothes he wore the day he went missing is unknown but he carried a watch and key chain. I have not been able to find any information about the type of watch and/or key chain.

His dental records, DNA, and fingerprints are all uploaded into NamUs. There is no other information online about this case except for the repeated case information.

I did find this from the newsletter the noose/MWA NY“the Noose” from the Mystery Writers of America New York Chapter.

It starts at the bottom of the left column and continues on the right. The link to the newsletter is below in the resource section. However, I want you to see those notes right here in this post.

The brother wanted to buy out Chris. Then Chris vanished.

Police found his car at the Red Bank Train Station, wiped clean of fingerprints.

To complicate matters, Chris had been having an affair with is best friend’s wife.”

I have not been able to find anything in the public domain to confirm or deny these statements.
