    CA - Charlotte Schmidt, 46, Fullerton, 15 January 1962

    FULLERTON: Charlotte Schmidt, age 46, Jan. 15, 1962 Charlotte Schmidt was found bludgeoned to death in the dining room of the San Juan Drive home she shared with her husband, who found her when he returned home from work at about 5 p.m. The pathologist later determined she had been dead about 2 to 3 hours before she was discovered. There were no apparent signs of forced entry into the home, which was up for sale at the time. But the rear sliding-glass door in the living room was found slightly open. Also, there was no sign of burglary. The case was "initially worked thoroughly," a police spokesman said, adding that the investigation was followed up with another one about 2 years later. The investigators contacted many people and were told of someone, most likely a solicitor, who had been seen going from door to door in the neighborhood that day. Eventually, though, police were unable to focus on anyone in particular.

    Does anyone know if the other two homicides in the Capri Pants Killer series -- Doris Bowman and Jessa Kahan -- were ever solved? Maybe it's my imagination but Mrs. Schmidt's murder sounds as though it might share some similarities with Patricia Neufeld's homicide in Garden Grove 16 years later.
