Steven Gregory Stayner
Birth: Apr. 18, 1965
Merced County, USA
Death: Sep. 16, 1989
Merced County, USA

Abduction Victim. He made world news when he was abducted at age 7 by Kenneth Parnell and Ervin Murphy. Stayner ran away and returned home at the age of 14, after Parnell kidnapped another little boy, Timmy White. Stayner brought White with him to the police when he fled from Parnell. His experience inspired the television movie "I Know My First Name is Steven." Parnell served five years for those kidnappings. He was killed at the age of 24 when a stalled car caused his motorcycle to crash. (bio by: Caroline)
