Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Light brown hair, blue eyes. Fuchs had a Fu Manchu style mustache at the time of his disappearance. His last name is pronounced "Fukes" and his family calls him Young Paul. He is of German and Hungarian descent.
Fuchs is a graduate of Wilson High School. He was working odd jobs at the time of his disappearance while trying to decide his future. His family said he was close to them and always kept them informed of his whereabouts. His mother described him as a talented artist who could also cook, sew and iron.
Authorities believe Fuchs may have been a victim of serial killer Randy Kraft, also known as the Scorecard Killer or the Freeway Killer, who targeted young men in the Los Angeles, California area in the 1970s and early 1980s. A photo of Kraft is posted with this case summary. He was a frequent patron of Ripples, and the man who was with Fuchs on the night of his disappearance resembled him.
Kraft was convicted of sixteen murders in 1989, but is suspected of as many as fifty more. He is now awaiting execution on California's death row.
