Interesting that the I-5 Killer (Randy Woodfield) was also active during the same period of time. Sadly Amanda I think there are so many serial killers and their victims we may never know about.

He plead guilty. I work with a woman who was good friends with Stephanie. The things that guy did to such a beautiful young woman should have put him squarely in the gas chamber. Here's the link: http://www.sacbee.com/latest/story/2218002.html

'I-5 Strangler'
Roger Kibbe found himself in Contra Costa after being paroled to the Oakley area in 1972.
He started stealing women's underwear off laundry lines and cutting them up. When he began killing, he unnecessarily cut victims' clothing, Holes said.
Kibbe's first and only Contra Costa victim was Walnut Creek resident Lou Ellen Burleigh, 21, who disappeared Sept. 11, 1977, after agreeing to meet a man advertising a job at a cosmetics studio.
Kibbe, who confessed to the crime, got her into his van. Last month, DNA testing confirmed that it was Burleigh's remains found near Lake Berryessa in March.
