    CA - Cold Cases in the San Francisco Bay Area: A Summary

    Homicide cold cases grow chillier as clues disappear, police resources dwindle

    As 9-year-old Beth Ringheim struggled to make sense of the gruesome murder scene in her father’s Dublin home, she formed a terrifying question: Who would do such a thing?... Such cases continue to dog detectives in agencies around the Bay Area as resources dwindle or clues and memories fade away.

    A very interesting set of articles as well as a map.

    In case anyone didn't notice it point your mouse at one of the dots on the map and click on it. For example for Antioch on the upper right (upper right of all the dots shown) it will show:
    AGENCY: Antioch
    DATE: 6/27/1980
    VICTIM(S): Susan Bombardier
    AGE: 14
    LOCATION: San Joaquin RIver
    CAUSE: Stabbing
    DESCRIPTION: Victim disappeared while babysitting and was found in a river near Big Break Harbor. Her nude body was found floating in the San Joaquin River.
    ARTICLE LINKS: https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.document...bombardier.pdf

    IT WOULD BE VERY USEFUL IF SOMEONE WOULD GO THROUGH AND CHECK EACH OF THESE 60 OR SO CASES AND EITHER ADD OR UPDATE A WEBSLEUTH POST!!!

    Unhappy

    Disappointed that they didn't include Ilene Mischeloff's case.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Wow....I lived in Los Gatos in 1979....about a block away from where Clara Rose was murdered. Haven't thought about it in years. I just got done reading all the newspaper articles that were included on that link. Bringing back all kinds of memories. A girl I used to walk to school with had lived in the same condo, but had moved the year before.
