Victim of domestic violence.
Paul was son of James Baker and Lynda Solorzano Baker. After his parents divorced, he lived with his father and step-mother, Susan, along with his sister, Nina. They lived in Beaufort, South Carolina. Susan told authorities that she put Paul down for a nap inside their residence on March 5 of that year. She claimed Paul had vanished by the time she returned to check on him. He has never been seen again. An extensive search of the Bakers' property produced little evidence as to Paul's whereabouts, and Nina was removed from the home after investigators learned that she suffered broken bones and sores covering her body. Susan was convicted of abusing the child and sentenced to ten years in prison for assault and battery. Her sentence was suspended due to time served. Paul's case went cold, and then was reopened in 1999 when it was decided that murderers could be tried without a body. In 2000, Susan and James Baker were extradited back to South Carolina from their Florida residence. Foul play is suspected in Paul's disappearance. However, his body has never been found. His was a young life that was taken far too soon.
