    OR - Rodney Grissom, 14, & Karen Lee, 15, Albany/Cornelius, May 1977

    These 2 children disappeared together within 2 days and were believed to be hitchhiking to California. They really remind me of the 2 people who were found deceased in Mendocino CA in 1979, but those young adults were proven to be related, and as far as we know these kids are just friends. What were kids so young doing hitchhiking anyway? Did their parents know about this, or did they plan on not coming back? I wonder if the Green River Killer was involved in this? If I recall correctly, he did operate out of OR at one point... He could've targeted Karen Lee and harmed Rodney Grissom because he was a witness.

    I believe DNA finally proved the 2 kids in Mendocino were not related. At first they were thought to be brother and sister and the last thing I recall seeing about them is that it was now thought they were a boyfriend and girlfriend who ran away together. I too think these would be a good match.

    First time here this post sounds like my husbands brother

    How do I find out if these two children were ever identified? Rodney is my father in laws son and I'd love to find out if this is Rodney they found. I'm not sure how to proceed from here

    The Mendocino County Jane Does have been identified as Kerry Graham and Francine Trimble of Forestville, California. Nuclear DNA tests proved that both bodies were female.

    Karen and Rodney were last seen in Cornelius and Albany, Oregon in May, 1977. Rodney left on May 24th, and Karen left on May 26. The pair reportedly planned to hitchhike to California. Neither of them have been heard from since. Later on, some items related to Karen and Rodney were found off a logging road in Washington County, Oregon. These items led investigators to believe foul play was involved in their disappearance.

    I'm very sorry but when it comes to Rod as in Rodney Grissom and Karen Lee, both of them are deceased.
    They were killed in the late seventies and died as hereos. Let their relatives know this, please.

    How do you know this to be true? All claims made on this site have to be supported by evidence.

    And, how exactly do you know this? What do you mean they "died as heroes"? Heroes in what context?
