    CA - Suzanne Bombardier, 14, Antioch, June 1980 -- body found in San Joaquin River

    I found some information on a Suzanne A. Bomardier. She was 14 at the time of her kidnapping. She was babysitting at her sisters apt.in Antioch Ca., the childrens ages were 5 and 6. She had made a phone call to a friend at 1:30am that Sunday 6-22-80. Everything seemed to be ok at that time,shortly after that call she disappeared ,her death is listed as 6-27-1980. She was an honor student at Antioch High School. Her body was found nude in the San Joaquin River on Friday the June 27th, so my guess is that she was killed sometime between the 6-22 the 27th ? Her overnight bag and shoes were still at the apt. No sign of a break in. If anyone has information on this cold case , please contact Antioch Pd. I have not found any new news about this case, but would like to learn more about it. It is very much like the Elaine Davis case in Walnut Creek, less than 20 miles from Antioch. Her body was found in Water near Santa Cruz Ca. also unsolved.

    This is my hometown, and was still quite small back then. Everyone knew each other. I'll have to pick the brains of family members to see what they remember.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    Former Antioch police officers want to work on the cold case of Suzanne Bombardier, who was 14 when she was murdered on June 22, 1980, after being kidnapped, raped and stabbed through the heart. Her body was later discovered after being dumped in the river.

    Greg Glod, a former Antioch Police Detective, who spent 26 years with the Secret Service and is now the Deputy Director for Threat Analysis of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., is spearheading the effort. Joining him are retired Antioch Police Sgt. Larry Hopwood and Detective Ron Rackley (more at link).

    "A search for justice, 35 years after Antioch teen’s slaying"

    http://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/art...ch-6342900.php


    But something went horribly wrong after Suzanne babysat her nieces at her sister’s Antioch town house on June 21, 1980 — the first day of summer.

    When her older sister Stephanie returned the next morning from a shift at a nearby restaurant, she didn’t see Suzanne but assumed she was sleeping upstairs. In fact, she had been kidnapped.

    Five days later, hope was lost when Suzanne’s nude body was pulled from the San Joaquin River about a quarter mile east of the Antioch Bridge. She had been sexually assaulted and stabbed in the heart.

    Now, 35 years after her slaying, with few solid leads in the case, Suzanne’s family and two retired Antioch police officers who worked the investigation — drawn together by a stranger — are searching for justice.
