Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, blue eyes. Bradley's hair was dyed black at the time of his disappearance. His left ear is pierced. His nickname is Brad and some agencies refer to him by that name.
Details of Disappearance Bradley was last seen in Phoenix, Arizona on November 10, 1995. His Centennial Middle School classes were canceled due to Veteran's Day, but he didn't tell his mother.
Instead, he left home as if to go to school and rode his mountain bike to visit a 13-year-old friend and classmate, Jeremy Bach, at Bach's home at Ahwatukee Custom Estates in the 3200 block of east Piro Street.
Bradley's mother later realized it was a school holiday, and she paged him to find out where he was. He never answered the page and he wasn't at home when she returned from work. She reported him missing that evening.
When questioned about Bradley's disappearance, Bach said they had been playing with guns and Bradley accidentally fired a shot into the wall, then panicked and fled on his bike.
Bradley's case was classified as a runaway for the next two months, until sanitation workers noticed bloodstains on the top and sides of the Bach family's trash container. Investigators subsequently found two inches of blood and body fluids in the bottom of the container, as well as bloodstains in Bach's kitchen.
When confronted with the evidence, Bach admitted he'd shot Bradley in the chest and put his body in the trash container, which was then taken to the Butterfield Station Landfill. Bach said the shooting was an accident. He told several different stories about how the accident supposedly happened.
Authorities launched a two-month search of the landfill at the cost of $100,000, but found no evidence. Investigators didn't believe Bach's story and theorized he killed Bradley during an argument over a girl they had both dated. He admitted that he never tried to summon help after the shooting and said Bradley took over an hour to die.
In January 1998, Bach was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to the maximum term of 22 years in prison. A photo of him is posted with this case summary.
Bradley's body has never been found.
