    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is offering a $50,000 reward for information on the disappearance of a woman whose cousin — a state lawmaker — is fighting to keep convicted killer Loren Herzog behind bars.

    Dena Viola McHan, 19, vanished on her way home from Sacramento to Stockton on Dec. 7, 1981. Her car was never found, and the last time someone saw McHan, she was getting gas near Lodi and two men were bothering her.

    I wonder who these men were and if police followed up on locating them. It would be helpful to have released a sketch of them.

    I wonder if the "speed freak" killers are responsible for her too.

    From what I can gather from what I have read. They did not start their killing till they graduated High school in 1986. But right now with what they are finding who know.

    Does anyone know how to check if this UID has been checked against Dena? I saw the list of ruled-out on the site but didn't see her name so I was wondering if this has been explored. Any help would be appricated, Thanks!

    Does anyone know the exact date of her disappearance? Namus lists December 6, 1981 and Doe network lists June 7, 1981. Even recent news stories aren't consistent.

    They graduated from high school in 1984, and the first murders attributed to them took place shortly thereafter. Paul Cavanaugh, Howard King, and Kimberly Billy were all killed in 1984.

    Dena McHan went missing three years earlier, so it is unlikely that she is one of their victims.

    I dont know if the Speed freak killers can be ruled out on anyone missing from 1980 till they were arrested.

    Loren Herzog was a big man, over 6' and 200 pounds. These two were so dimented that yes I could see them killing when they were 15 or 16 years old. They felt they could do anything and get away with it. Take Michaela gareght as an example. If Herzog is the one that took her, he did it in broad daylight, 10am in front of witnesses. These two were brazen killers by the time Chevy Wheeler went missing..........I dont think she was their first!

    I also believe almost anyone in Stockton, CA who vanished amongst these decades are possible victims of the SFK. These guys were demented, and seeing a pretty girl like Dena, who knows what risks they would have taken.
    I agree with you Leprikawn, if they took Michaela (which it's looking like it), which was in broad daylight, I think anything is possible.

    He has been ruled out. The Hayward police interviewed him, Nancy, and Jaycee, and gave them polygraph tests. after searches of the property and not finding any evidence, they said they were no longer suspects.

    it sure sounded like Phillip was the man when Jaycee was found. I have always hoped that the ending Jaycee had, would be the same for Michaela.

    I also thought he did because Michaela and Jaycee have similar features. And if Garrido took Michaela, it would be possible she's still alive. I think he is a sick man, but I dont think he is a killer.

    However, I do not think he is the one who took Michaela now.
