The mystery surrounding the disappearance of an Orange County man in Spain 1 1/2 years ago has been solved. Forensic authorities identified a body recovered from a grave as that of Steve Juggert, 30. Two men had told police they had buried a robbery victim in the grave. Although the grave was unearthed in December, it took Spanish officials until last month to positively identify the remains as those of Juggert, an Orange resident who disappeared in December, 1988, while traveling in Europe.

Weary of the frenetic pace of his sales job, Steve Juggert set out a year ago today for the back roads of Western Europe and the Middle East on a journey of self-discovery. The 30-year-old Orange man began his trip in Spain, carrying with him only a backpack, a camera and a note pad in which to chronicle his adventures. In his only letter home, postmarked Dec.

The family of a missing Orange man said Tuesday that two West German men have apparently confessed to killing Steve Juggert, who disappeared more than a year ago while vacationing in Europe. Bob Oppermann, Juggert's brother-in-law, said the State Department informed him that the two West German suspects, already in custody in Spain in connection with another murder, directed police to a shallow grave on Spain's southern coast where they said Juggert's body was buried.

For months my wife and I read of incidents of theft and attacks on tourists in Spain, in your Travel Section. In spite of this we visited Madrid and Seville in August. Strolling with hundreds of citizens and tourists in downtown Madrid in a crowded area, we passed an excavated building site. We were suddenly attacked by four men. One grabbed my wife's purse and pushed her to the ground. She fought, and the man fled without the purse. The other three threw me to the ground and ripped off my flight bag, which was encircled around my chest.

Our experience here convinced us that life really is what happens to you when you are making other plans. Four of us rented a car at the airport after arrival and drove quickly to the center of old town to do two things: watch the locals do the traditional dance in front of the famous Gothic cathedral and to check into a hotel. We parked our car a block away, in sight of the Hotel Colon, and for half an hour we enjoyed the dancing.
