    CA - Daphne Collier, 16, Sacramento, 31 Aug 1977

    Daphne had hitchhiked from her foster home in Seaside, CA, to visit her mother in Cottage Grove, Oregon. She was last seen exiting a vehicle in downtown Sacramento on the evening of Wednesday, August 31, 1977. The following day her body was discovered on the side of Grant Line Road in Elk Grove, Sacramento. She had been strangled with a scarf and sexually assaulted. She was wearing only panties and a shirt.

    To correct an earlier post, Collier was not sexually assaulted. According to an article published in the 2 Sep 1977 edition of the Sacramento Bee, "an autopsy found no evidence of rape or sexual abuse, sheriff's deputies said."

    The article you posted states she was a member of Young Life. There were a lot of Jesus cults back in the 1970's. Do you know if anyone who attended Young Life were questioned by LE?

    From the articles published in the Sacramento Bee at the time (1977), sheriff's deputies determined that she had visited the Young Life camp in Woodleaf, about 40 miles north of Marysville, the first week of August with about 30 teens from her high school in Seaside. She received the jersey during that trip.
