    AZ - Angela Brosso, 22, & Melanie Bernas, 17 - murdered in 1992/1993

    On Friday, Nov. 20, Angela Brosso's, 22, head was found in a stretch of the Arizona Canal about two miles south of where her body was found. Detectives scoured the areas where Brosso's body and head were found, but no significant leads or suspects developed.

    Then, on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 1993, less than a year later, another young woman was killed in the same area and in much the same manner as Brosso.

    Melanie Bernas, a 17-year-old Arcadia High School student, was murdered while riding her bicycle along the Arizona Canal. Bernas' body was found floating in the canal near the point where it crosses under the Black Canyon Freeway, about a half-mile north of Dunlap Avenue, and about 2 miles south of where Brosso's body was found.

    I remember these murders. I lived in Phoenix at the time. There is something very disturbung about the David Grubbs murder in Ashland Oregon in late 2011. There are similarities to the murders of these two girls and David Grubbs. He was, as they were, on a bike trail alone. Perhaps the killer is the same person, and he is older and rusty and could not, 1) Steal the victims bike after the crime, 2) completely decapitate the victim.

    The girl on the bike happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
    The killer was there reminiscing about the murder the year before and or perhaps was looking for a new spot for another victim, and the girl on the bike happened to come by and became a victim. This is definitely someone local and lives within the general area where the bodies were discovered. He may had have business out there, or a reason for being in the area without drawing suspicion to hi8mself if any one seen him there. May had been a work vehicle of some kind like a van utility truck but just guessing on both. If there has been no more killings in that area, he may have become spook by the girl on the bike and has since stopped killing. But that is just a guess also and all the above is nothing more than speculation and assumptions with guesses based upon what I have read here.

    I thought the fact the boyfriend at the time of her disappearance has started posting regularly to answer questions would have attracted more attention to the case?..

    This is really interesting. I read threw the whole thread and walked away convinced the killer of both these girls was the one posting and having a conversation with Sandybeaches. Very weird.
