Wendy Hudakoc, was 14 years, when someone phoned Wendy at the family’s Golden Gate home around 11 p.m. on Nov. 14, 1998, on Saturday night. Her mother, Shelley, and stepfather, Dan Campbell, were in Tampa for the weekend. Her sister, Sharlene Hudakoc-Boyatt, then 16, was at home with a friend. Dan’s co-worker was staying with the three girls. “She took Dan Campbell’s pager and said to Sharlene, ‘If I get busted, call me right away and I’ll come right home.’” Sharlene, then a Naples High junior, decided not to go to the party.
What We Know

- Everyone at the party seen Wendy leave with Ron DePeppo
- The time they left was between 2:00 and 2:30am
- There was no communication with Wendy Hudakoc after Ron DePeppo and Wendy Left
- Ron DePeppo’s car caught fire December 1, 1989 Evidence was apparently destroyed
- Witnesses and family have taken and passed lie detector test
- Ron DePeppeo has refused to test
- Ron DePeppo’s parents hired him a attorney
*** Witnesses stated that Ron Deppeo and Wendy Hudakoc were the only two people in the vehicle
- The only one responsible is the guy that she left with.
- He was creepy and I got a bad feeling from him.
- We all told him to take his hands out of his pants or leave.
- She didn’t make a phone call.
- She didn’t know anybody named Jeff that we hung out.
- I know the guy was lying.
- She had to go home cause she had snuck out
- She was my best friend.
Many theories, have crossed the mind and went on, we have not been able to identify a phone call being made from the pay phone as Donald had said, nor did the phone records show any page being made to Wendys father in-laws pager.
