Mark Riebe’s half-brother, William Alex Wells, led authorities in 1996 to Callahan’s body, buried on farmland in DeFuniak Springs, after pleading no contest to his role in her murder. Both men are serving life sentences. Haley said Mark Riebe’s mother called about a year after he was sent to state prison and asked that he speak to her son. Haley said Riebe told him during the meeting that he’d killed 13 people (young women). Riebe — currently being held at the Blackwater River Correctional Facility in Milton — also confessed to killing Pamela Ray, who disappeared in 1992 from in front of a Panama City Beach motel room.
Pamela Ray’s car was locked and her purse and two young children were left inside the vehicle. The case continues to baffle the Bay County Sheriff’s Office, as Ray’s body has never been recovered. Pamela Ray had parked her blue car at the former Wilhite Motel on Front Beach Road PCB on August 12, 1992. Haley also believes Mark Riebe could be responsible for the death of Bonnie Gayle Ryther, a 27-year-old whose body was found April 11, 1978, near Ferry Park in Fort Walton Beach.
During the early morning hours of August 12, 1992, Pamela Ray and her two children, ages five and twelve, left their home in Atlanta, Georgia, on a trip to Panama City Beach, Florida. When they arrived in Panama City, however, she was unable to find a vacant room (Summer is high season on PCB). She made contact with the night clerk at the former Wilhite Motel, some sources state White's Motel and Apartments on the same road at 10719 Front Beach Road Panama City Beach Fl, who advised her that he did not have any rooms left. At 3:30AM, she parked in the parking lot for the remainder of the night. She was seen by seven witnesses including two police officers. At 5:30AM, she locked her car door and left her children sleeping in the backseat in the parking lot. She walked through the building's lobby to the swimming pool, and was apparently followed by an unidentified man (Mark Riebe).
After that, she mysteriously vanished. "I had stayed at the same motel in early 1992, it was actually called 'White's Motel & Apartments' 10716 Front Beach Rd, Panama City Beach, FL, see photo above". Bones that were discovered by cadaver dogs in a wooded area of DeFuniak Springs in April 2000 had been sent for testing to Canada. Investigators believed that the bones were the remains of Pam Ray. They were found less than 100 feet from where the body of Donna Callahan (who was murdered by Mark Riebe) was discovered in 1996.
