There remains an unsolved case of death in Saint Joseph, Missouri, the hometown of Peter Vandever. At least as far as most of those with awareness of the case believe, the tragic drowning of Faith Vandever in September 1990 had only one eyewitness: her brother Peter.
The official story is that her death was an unfortunate accident. Peter himself has long made this claim. It is said that she had fallen off of a raft on the lake while Peter sat by helplessly and watched her fight, unsuccessfully, for her life. Faith was only a small child at the time.
