    Birth: 1950
    Death: May 10, 1978

    Unsolved Triple Homicide.

    Karen was a loving mother. She was murdered along with her two young sons, Scott and Mark. Her husband, Robert Pretty, says he came home from work to find his family deceased. The county medical examiner, Dr. Jospeh Jachimezek, ruled that the deaths were from a combination of strangulation and suffocation by drowning. The main clue in the three deaths was the family's 1978 Mercury Marquis, which was found in an unassigned parking space at an apartment house. There was no sexual assault or robbery. One theory is that this may have been a hit which was intended on another family. Apparently there was an informant in the neighborhood who caused the arrest of a known drug dealer, Anthony, who is now deceased. The people who committed this crime may have been from another state which might explain them getting the wrong house. However, this is just a theory. If you have heard or know anything that may solve this case, please call the number below. You may even do this anonymously. The family of the victims has been suffering for 20 years now.

    Welcome, sflores. Jeannie hasn't posted in awhile so I thought I'd answer, instead. I believe the information came from this site. Open the pdf and scroll down to page 6. Hope that helps you.
