Details of Disappearance
Terry’s  stepfather dropped him and his older brother Alan off at the Broadway Theater on Hay Street in Fayetteville, North Carolina on September 12, 1964. The two brothers were never seen again and it is unclear if they actually walked into the theater.

Police questioned the boys’ stepfather, Carl Bock, who said he dropped Terry and Alan off at the theater at 5:30 p.m. When he went to pick them up at 8:00 p.m., he said, they had disappeared. Some employees at the theater remember seeing the Westerfield children that evening, but other theater workers do not. They were regular customers and could be easily recognized. Bock was separated from the children’s mother at the time Terry and Alan vanished. He was an Army sergeant who worked in the Criminal Investigations Division at Fort Bragg in 1964, and was shipped overseas a year after his stepsons disappeared.

Investigators believe Bock was in some way involved in the Westerfield children’s disappearances. They think the boys were both killed a short time after being abducted. No one has ever been charged in the cases, however. It was raining on the night they disappeared. Terry and Alan’s biological father was interviewed and ruled out as a suspect. Bock has since divorced from Alan and Terry’s mother and now lives in Wisconsin; he was last interviewed by police in Virginia in 2000. The Westerfield brothers’ cases remain unsolved.

    I have so many questions about this case. And this case eats at me every day. If Carl Bock did murder these boys, I think they were old enough to fight back. Unless he used a gun and killed them instantly. Did Carl Bock have defense wounds anywhere on him when he was questioned? Was he or his clothing tested for GSR? Was the car he drove and the trunk tested for blood or GSR? What was in the car or trunk….any tape, rope, weapons or anything of that matter? I would love to write a book or a script for a movie about this case. But I would need details about the questioning of Carl Bock and the theater employees. There was a hurricane coming that night and most evidence would be gone, but the car would be the main issue there. I know in 1964 there were not many tests to run, but come on….PLEASE give us more details on the case!
