Sketch of Victim
Unidentified White Female
The victim was located in Sugar Pine Point State Park, El Dorado County, California on September 28, 1979.
The editor of a local paper telephoned sheriff's deputies and told them he received anonymous information that a woman's body could be found in Sugar Pine Point State Park. Sheriff's deputies found the woman, who had struggled for her life as she was beaten to death. The people who anonymously reported finding the body were located by investigators but none was held as a suspect.
Some of the tips received later in the case included the allegations that the slain woman had lived at a South Lake Tahoe motel and that she had won a lot of money playing keno just before she was killed. Detectives checked out big- money winners at local casinos, but uncovered no useful leads.
