Anthony "Tony" Luzio Jr.

Young Man Disappears After Leaving Late Night Party

One name that has continuously been linked with Brian Shaffer’s disappearance is that of Anthony “Tony” Luzio. On the evening of July 3, 2005 Tony had gone to a friend’s house to play cards. Afterwards he stopped at a local hangout and around 2:30AM Tony and a group of friends went to a party, one mile from Tony’s parents house in Powell, Ohio.

Tony was last seen leaving the party at 4:00AM, presumably to his apartment. That was the last time anyone ever saw Tony Luzio again. His 2004 Honda Civic is also missing and has never been recovered. He disappeared just 15 miles from where Brian Shaffer disappeared.


This is all I have found on this case. It is poorly covered and the only reason I heard about it was because it was linked to the Brian Shaffer case, which I profiled previously. The reason they are linked is because they were from nearby areas in Ohio and there have been numbers of unsolved cases involving young men that had pictures of smiley faces nearby. This is referred to as "the smiley face murders", implying a serial killer at large, which is possible. However, there are no clues linking any of the cases other than the random faces on nearby structures and in both the Shaffer and Luzio cases there were no smiley faces at all. This does not preclude a link it just doesn't do much to support one, either. However, I thought I'd look into this case on it's own and if there happened to be some red flag that linked it to the Shaffer case somehow, I would note it. If you remember my post on Brian Shaffer, the charts had him leaving a bar with an employee there over a money thing. I am not sure if that will somehow show up in this one.

The first chart I drew up was for the last time Tony was seen, which was at 4 am, leaving a party. He had been socializing all night, moving from a card game to a bar and then to a private party. I remember what it was like to be young and energetic and to stay up all night on holidays like the fourth of July. Anyways, the chart has Gemini rising and Sagittarius falling. Mercury is in the third house and the Moon is in the first, near the Ascendant. The position of the Moon tells me that Tony is in control of his actions at this time and is "doing what he wants to". The Moon in Gemini is generally well aspected, which tells me he is having a good time and things are going his way. But the seventh house tells a slightly different story so we have to give it some thought. Pluto is in the seventh, loosely opposed to the Moon, which says there was someone afoot who was not so happy with Tony. Jupiter, the seventh house ruler, is in the fifth house, telling me that this person had been at the party and may have still been when Tony left. In other words, they did not leave together. The first house ruler has Tony getting into a car, most likely his own, and leaving.

Pluto in the seventh opposing the Moon in the first says there may have been an argument at the party. Not a fist fight, per se, but an exchange. Pluto in Sagittarius is also generally well aspected, showing me that this person is not a stranger or a "bad guy". This isn't some run of the mill criminal or transient. But the opposition to the Moon shows anger, animosity and even confrontations between this person and the subject. This person was angry this night as well. But not horribly angry. Just miffed. This most likely came about because of cross purposes; Tony wanted one thing and this person wanted another. Something simple like that. But not a red flag to the extent that I think Tony was in danger. This is just the only confrontational aspect I see at this time. Nothing dangerous or scary.

Mercury, Tony's ruler, is in Leo in the third. The Sun disposes Mercury from the second house. This tells me he might have had some money on him that night; I do not know if he gambled when he played cards but if he did, he was carrying his winnings. Because the Sun is a part of a planetary loop, where it is disposed of by Moon, it looks like Tony might have been bragging about winning the money and maybe showing off. Another thing I must mention is the conjunction of Venus to Mercury in the third house. This looks like a woman went with him when he left the party. Perhaps she needed a ride. However, the disposition of the Sun in the second house being the binding planet here, I think she went along because she saw the money he was showing off about. I don't know if Tony had a girlfriend but I am sure she wasn't with him if he did. However, I see nothing indicating a relationship or even an attraction here, just a woman in the car.

She may have been hanging around outside, asking for a ride. I am not sure but he spent some time in the car with her. The charts do not show him getting out of that car until almost 5:30 am, which is an hour and a half after leaving the party. This is not to say they drove the whole time, or it may be saying that she lived quite far away. I am not sure. Perhaps they went somewhere else to spend his money or perhaps she was a hooker and he was paying for her company. I just cannot even guess here. But when he does get out of the car, he gets out with her. They get out of the car together and it appears to be someplace Tony is unfamiliar with. The chart for 5:30 am shows Cancer rising with Moon in the twelfth. The Sun has moved into the first house. Saturn is also in the second, with Venus and Mercury. And this is where I see her more clearly. She is an older woman but I don't mean old. She may be a mother and talking him into taking her home to check on her kids. But there's something secret about it; something she isn't telling him.

And looking now at the chart for 6 am, I have to take a guess that Tony was killed. Cancer rising with Moon in the twelfth, trine Neptune in the eighth and Jupiter in the fourth. Pluto in the sixth and Saturn creeping into the first. A death pattern if I've ever seen one! Considering that the Moon is exactly conjunct the fixed star, Bellatrix, and Pluto is close to Sabik, this looks like a sexual type of murder. Clearly, he was killed by a woman who used her sexual wiles to attract him and pull him into a trap. There may have been promises of a sexual nature that were too tempting to resist. But she was hiding something and I think it was a man at her home... or wherever it was that she had Tony take her. The Sun is right at the Ascendant with Saturn right behind it. Jupiter is angular in the fourth house, opposing Mars in the tenth. There was a confrontation.. and not long after Tony arrived at the place. In fact, he was met face to face by this man and with Pluto opposing the Moon, this was a night for confrontations. Significant planets in the second house widely opposed by eighth house Neptune tells me that this was a robbery scheme. He had been showing off the money and she had plans to steal it. She just didn't have the means.. or the strength.. or the weapon she needed and the boyfriend or brother or husband or pimp did. Mars in Aries in the tenth is a powerful angular planet. Tony was shot in the head at close range and was instantly killed. Mars close to the Node there also hints that this was planned out. She had probably called her accomplice from the party.

So what these charts are telling me is that he was either followed out of the party or he directly left the party with a woman. The fact that no reports of a woman have come out in this case puzzles me. It leaves me thinking that either no one knew her and therefor paid no attention to her ..... or she was not at the party the whole time and left earlier and waited outside... or she was seen leaving with him but not by people who knew either of them. If reports had him leaving alone, then perhaps she followed him outside and approached him as he tried to leave. It's anyone's guess. She talked him into driving her quite some distance to a place outside of his home area and then lured him inside where he was shot by a male accomplice. They wanted his money, plain and simple. By definition, Venus in Leo, defines a flashy woman who was wearing clothes that get attention. Possibly also wearing gold jewelry. It's hard to imagine Venus in Leo leaving a room and no one noticing.

As far as where Tony may be now, the signature for his body is Moon in Gemini. In traditional horary, the Moon places his body near water, possibly in a pond, a river or even the sewer. Gemini defines a fork in the road, an area with small, busy neighborhood roads, someplace close perhaps to tennis courts, badminton, golf, parking garages or a library. I know this makes the area large and not definite. But the inference of water along with small busy roads and a possible fork in the road is the first place I'd look. A body of water near a busy country road that forks at some point. If there are nature parks nearby, someplace with hand sports like tennis or shuffleboard, then all the better. However, another scenario may be a body of water near a golf course. Or a sewer line in an area near a parking garage. In terms of local area, I would say that he was dumped in a place south by southeast from where he started out. This is determined by Moon in Gemini in the twelfth house.

However, there is always a possibility that I am completely wrong! Imagine that. And if I am, then Tony could be anywhere, hanging out, or even held hostage. I think this is unlikely but I won't discourage people from looking for him. So I am posting his picture here for my readers to take note of and if anyone has any information that they feel might be pertinent to this case, then they should call 1-877-645-TIPS. There is a $100,000 reward.

    I have been following this case for years. I always had a feeling they should look by the bridge on home road by riverside dr..I saw this post and googled a map of the area and low and behold it is saturated in parks and golf courses. Hoping they find him so he can rest.
