Some of these victims were abducted and disposed of in San Francisco; one woman was found in Golden Gate Park, which is blocks away from where I live. I can't imagine why a murderer that was likely living in the North Bay would choose to dispose of a body in a very densely populated city like SF, where he ran a high risk of someone witnessing him dump the body. I'm almost certain that the SF murders were committed by someone else.
    There was some FBI report that speculated that the Santa Rosa cases, the SF cases and some others in Northern California were linked and gave them the name "The California Occult Murders". I am very skeptical.

    Four murders in San Francisco during the period May 29, 1973 and July 15, 1973 (Rosa Vasquez, Yvonne Quilandtang, Nancy Gidley and Angela Thomas) were very similar and probably connected. All of the victims disappeared from the City and their bodies were found nude in isolated locations. There is no reason to believe any were hitchhiking.

    These murders were somewhat overshadowed by the Zebra killings which began later in the year. It is possible that they are connected but most likely they were the act of one sexual predator. There has been little publicity or follow of these murders but, since the bodies were found within a few days, DNA might be available.

    Schoolmates, neighbors never told Forestville girls vanished 36 years ago

    http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/51...enu&artslide=0

    Goetz, who was a schoolmate of Graham’s and hung out with both girls, remains troubled that no one at the time asked her whether she’d seen them and no one in authority told her or other students they were even missing.

    “What breaks my heart is no one ever asked,” said Goetz, 53, whose maiden name was O’Halloran and who now lives in Santa Rosa. She said she may have had information that could have helped find the girls.

    Other former schoolmates who knew the girls more casually first found out they’d gone missing this month when the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office revealed Feb. 2 their remains had finally been identified, found in the woods near a pullout along Highway 20 west of Willits. They were stunned they had not heard of the case sooner.

    “How did we not know about this disappearance of two girls from very small schools and a very small town?” asked Kathy Culley, a Santa Rosa resident and classmate of Graham’s at El Molino.
    But Margaret Graham thinks sheriff’s investigators believed at the time the girls left voluntarily.

    “If a child didn’t come back, they assumed they ran away,” she said. “You have to remember how long ago that was. Kids were doing their own thing.”

    Graham, 77, doesn’t think that was the case because her daughter was recovering from having her appendix removed and was still taking antibiotics. Trimble’s aunt earlier this month recalled in an interview her sister telling her at the time that Graham’s antibiotics were left on a dresser at her home, something she considered suspicious.
    Goetz said she last saw the girls at El Molino High School one day that December. They had joined her and some other students that morning to smoke cigarettes in the parking lot near the tennis courts. Graham was a student at the high school while Trimble was in eighth grade at Forestville School. Neither attended school that day, Goetz said.

    “They came to school. They didn’t go to class,” she said. “That was the last time we saw them.”

    The girls said they were going to hitchhike to a party in Santa Rosa, Goetz said. She said she didn’t know who they were meeting up with.

    Roselvr submitted this match in 2014.

    So even if they didn't look into this based in Roslvr's submission, they should have. She was on record saying that the date discrepancy should be questioned before it actually was questioned, and I see nothing on any other forum to suggest that anyone questioned it before she did. Several did afterward, but none before.

    So IMO, Roselvr deserves the Match!, and I am flagging the thread as such.

    Congrats, Roselvr.
    YESSSSSSS! So proud of you sista!!

    According to one article, Francine's family said they were doing their make up; left to run to the mall, but were coming back.

    ??? I know this is a post from an old thread which has migrated to a cold case thread, but is anyone (such as the mod) going to update and correct this for the sake of accuracy?

    I'm sure they will if someone notifies them. To do so, click on the triangle in the bottom left of the post in question.
