1,200 guns, two tons ammo, and the connection with a missing persons case. Really weird backstory.

Curiously weird.

I just posted this as a response to the thread "LAPD finds 1,200 guns, two tons of ammo in dead man's Pacific Palisades home" in LBN.

It is not a gun post but a late breaking backstory as the general media has not yet made the connection to a just solved missing persons case.

A 39 year old woman named Dawn Vadbunker went missing July 2, 2015. She was 35 and her gone missing was reported by her adoptive parents. She had been adopted as an adult within the last 2 years. The last communication was that Dawn was off to meet with her boss, a property manager. She did not return and the property manager also could not be reached. There was a missing person search and no cell, account activity, etc. discerned.

Websleuths thread starting July 14, 2015:


Dawn and her boss were located on July 15, 2015 at a motel in Oregon.

Dawn's boss is the fiancée of the dead man with the guns and ammo.

Almost sounds to me like perhaps she had some kind of secret relationship going on with her boss and they went away together? Perhaps she had marriage to former husband (male) annulled as she had developed a relationship with her female boss?
Um.... the boss was busy deciding what to do with her dead fiance she had been with for 17 yrs (but somehow did not know that he had over a thousand guns and 2 tons of ammo piled up 8 ft high at her condo). You think the missing 39 yr old story is weird! Check out the boss's story in the LA Times here and google around for the others... It is a real goose chase. Nebron (the boss) has a Fiance who reportedly dies in the car on the 4th of July - and she puts him, his dead body, in the car, parks it up the road and takes off for Oregon for a week or so with Dawn Marie. Both go missing and both go radio silent for the trip, not replying to cell phones per the reports. Catherine Nebron's attny then calls LE to report the dead body and weapons cache on the 17th of July (per his story to the press) The dead fiance is the real mystery of this case that needs some serious sleuthing but they aren't releasing his name other than a pseudonym he used "Bob Smith"... He told neighbors he worked for CIA. The whole thing is bizarre. LE said they did not know who the guy is or how he died...but somehow they know there was no foul play. Here's the LA Times. And another link to the story.



edit to fix last two links.

1. This story is all over the place but very interesting .


I discount anything from the Washington Times but hopefully someone is on this case looking for truth .

3. 100% agree to both- The story was in today's LA Times and the missing woman case in national MSM

The dead gun owner is a Mr. Smith that may be with the CIA.

The Washington Times report makes the narrative all the more curious.

The boss and companion of the no longer missing woman was with Mr. Smith 17 years and did did not know of the guns in her condo.

She dumped Mr. Smith's car and corpse before heading off to Oregon.

Best there is an explanation but maybe will just whisp away unexplained or more confusing.

6. July 23, 2015 Update - Lead story on MSN website


A man who was found dead in a vehicle in a Pacific Palisades neighborhood last week and linked to a home where police discovered a massive cache of firearms appears to have been a 60-year-old longtime Los Angeles County gun collector, police and others said Wednesday.

An attorney representing the dead man's fiancée identified him as Jeffrey Alan Lash. Several law enforcement sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an LAPD investigation into the death is ongoing, said detectives believe the dead man was Lash but have not made a conclusive identification.

Shirley Anderson, the longtime partner of Lash's late father, said she hadn't seen Lash since 2010 but received a call last week from the L.A. County coroner's office.

A coroner's official, she said, told her that authorities had just found a man's body inside an abandoned vehicle on Palisades Drive, and that they believed the man was Lash. Anderson said Lash had not provided her with an address or phone number for years.


Several people who live in the area where the body was found said the man was known only as "Bob" in the neighborhood and described him as a gun fanatic who claimed to have worked covertly for the government. Police have said the man did not do such work for the government.

His fiancée's attorney, Harland Braun, previously said the man died in the parking lot of Bristol Farms on Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica on July 4. His fiancée, the lawyer said, wasn't sure what to do with the body and left it in a vehicle on Palisades Drive while she headed to Oregon. Braun said his client believed that a government agency that the man had claimed to work for would come to collect him.


Anderson, 93, said she knew little about what Lash did after he left UCLA because his communication with the family was limited. He never told her what he did for a living or where his money came from, she said.

7. This is really weird, today's UK Daily Mail. Hilarious sort of.

There are Daily Mail articles from last week about the missing woman but this is the first article tying together the gun stash and Dawn VadBunker goes missing.

Mysterious LA loner with $5m gun arsenal was 'a human-alien hybrid secret agent sent to save the human race' claims his fiancee and her friend who watched him die before dumping his body in car
Man identified as 60-year-old Jeffrey Alan Lash, of LA County, died July 4 but wasn't found until July 17
Body was discovered badly decomposed inside a car in Pacific Palisades
Lash's fiancee Catherine Nebron and her employee Dawn VadBunker dumped the body
Police linked the car to Lash's fiancee's house nearby and found 1,200 guns and 6.5 tons of ammunition
Fiancee's attorney said Nebron and VadBunker believed Lash was half-alien savior
VadBunker and Nebron fled for Oregon without telling police about Lash's death because they thought CIA would come to collect his body
VadBunker's mother reported her missing last week after failing to reach her

10. Neither the 90 year old companion of his rip father nor his fiancee seem to know.

where the $ was from.

DU doesn't seem much interested in this but is really weird.

The ammo has gone up from 2 tons to 8.5 tons.

The women were allegedly with the man when passed, left his body in a car, and split the state and this is ok with LE.

He also had 14 vehicles including an underwater SUV.

The fiancée had been with Lash for 17 years.

They were well know and frequented a neighborhood restaurant where the finance and Lash came in separate cars and he always ordered raw filet mignon.

Sounds nutty to me (and why catches my attention lol).
