    CA - Five Walker children, Clayton, 8 September 1968

    Just after midnight on Sept. 8, 1968, six siblings were tucked into bed at the family's Panadero Court home when someone threw an explosive device through the home's front window. Flammable liquid that had been poured onto the room carpet moments earlier immediately ignited and the large ranch-style home went up in flames.

    Five of the six children died inside the four-bedroom home and nearly 46 years later loved ones wonder if they'll ever have closure, certainty or solace. Carol and Richard Walker, were attending a fundraiser at John Muir Hospital Walker that night. They returned home in time to witness the final minutes of the holocaust and learn that five of their children were dead: Linda, 20, Cynthia, 13, Carlton, 9, Theodore, 3 and Mary Ann, 6 months.

    The killer has never been identified.
