    Troopers try to identify victim of serial killer


    ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers are making another try at identifying a murdered woman nicknamed ''Eklutna Annie,'' more than 20 years after her decomposed body was found buried along a power line outside Eklutna.

    The woman, believed to be a white brunette in her 20s, was found on July 21, 1980, by electric workers repairing the line. She had no identification and could not be matched to a missing persons report. Troopers believe she may have come to Alaska from Washington or California.

    Forensic experts said the woman appeared to have been dead about a year.

    In 1984, a local baker named Robert Hansen listed her among the 17 women he admitted killing in and around Anchorage. He said she was his first victim, but didn't know her name. She was a topless dancer or a prostitute, he told troopers in his confession. He picked her up in town, told her he lived in Muldoon and was taking her to his home.

    But when he continued past Muldoon Road out of town, the woman said no and tried to get out of his pickup, so he pulled a gun on her.

    ''I just pointed the gun and I tell her, I says, 'Now look, if you do exactly what I tell you and don't give me any problem whatsoever, there's going to be no -- you won't get hurt any way, shape or form,''' Hansen told troopers.

    But the truck got stuck in mud. The woman helped Hansen maneuver onto tractable ground, but when he told her to get out for a minute, she ran, he said. He caught her by the hair and claims she pulled a knife from her purse. He overpowered her, he said, and used the knife to stab her in the back.

    Hansen said the woman might have said she or her family lived in Kodiak.

    Troopers were not convinced the woman was Hansen's first victim, but her death occurred early enough in his murder career that he left her jewelry on her body when he buried her.

    Troopers are hoping someone will recognize her jewelry. None of it is valuable or particularly distinctive, but a silver cuff bracelet with polished stones may be handmade.

    Once Hansen became a more experienced killer, he began keeping his victims' jewelry. A bag of such jewelry was found in his home after investigators came to suspect him in the disappearances of dancers and prostitutes from pipeline-era Anchorage.

    Hansen, now in his 60s, is in Spring Creek prison in Seward, serving 461 years plus life.

    When found, Annie was wearing knee-high, reddish-brown, high-heeled boots, jeans, a sleeveless knit top and a brown leather jacket.

    Possible Match?

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Cupps was admitted to the juvenile shelter in Tecumseh, at the time it was called Girlstown. Everything found from police records, hospital records, social security, ends in 1975. Convicted of larceny in 1975, Teresa Cupps went into the Department of Corrections system, under a different name -- Kimbi Boyd. But she stopped reporting to her probation officer in 1977. That's the last found solid documentation put on paper. Cupps was into prostitution around 1975 and was a heroine user.

    There is a thread for this UID

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...na#post4304781

    I'll ask the mod to merge the threads.


    There's not too much out there in the MP sites.

    Karen Dean Evan

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/e/evan_karen.html
    She is from Alaska, and aside from her Native American ethnicity, she fits the physical description, but she probably had not been missing long enough to fit the estimated 1-year postmortem interval.

    Angela Meeker

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...er_angela.html
    also fits the physical description, and is from Washington (as speculated by LE). However, DNA is available both for Angela, and Eklutna Annie, so CODIS should have identified the match, if there was one.

    I wonder why they never at least looked dentals to see if they could match her up with Megan Emerick who went missing in 1973 from Seward, Alaska.

    I know that the circumstances would seem to suggest that this was not her but that was taken from information from a known serial killer.

    Megan Emerick shares several features that I believe may make her a good possibility.

    - She was relatively close to where the UID was found (in terms of the size of Alaska)
    - She is within the age range
    -She looks to have brown hair to the middle of her back
    -She is one inch over the height estimate
    -She very strongly resembles the UID

    I would say that Karen Dean Evan is the best possible match. From what I've read, it sounds like the last time she called anyone was in May of 1980. I think that the possibility that this date is incorrect by a few weeks or even months is pretty strong. I think the other info is too close to not submit this as a possible match. I wish her family had provided more info to LE.

    Claudette is right. The reconstruction is pretty primitive. It would wonderful to see an updated recon done on this case. Not sure how one goes about that, but if ever a recon needed a do-over, this is one! NIJ is paying the tab to do recons I heard? The center for exploited and missing children as well has access to a computer program? Florida seems to be doing a wonderful job with computer recons of their UID. Too bad these resources cannot be tapped...

    Here's a new NamUs casefile for a girl from Seattle who was thought to have gone up to Anchorage and was involved in "vice related crime".

    Theresa Kay Davis


    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14223/1

    Her listed height is a little tall for Eklutna Annie though.

    Also, her age at the time of disappearance is not listed, but she would probably be too old at the time of EA's death (about a year before the remains were found in 1980).

    I agree with you on the height - TKD is 5" over the extremely small UID's mid point.

    If TKD (I couldn't find a date of birth) is/would be 56 years old now, she would have been born in 1955/56. If Annie's date of death was one year before then she would have been approximately 23 years old at that point; which I would class as upper end of the age range, rather than an inconsistency, especially if the date of death was actually closer to two years (though that depends on the quality and reliability of the witness, the killer).

    The circumstances match the account nicely though, in terms of location, history, and overall look. TKD's hair is described as black though and while the hair in the photo doesn't look that dark at all (and I guess it could have been dyed, although the UID doesn't mention that) that is a discrepancy from "reddish brown."

    Carl,

    I think you should call in TKD to both Seattle and AK.

    Why is her age at LKA a mystery? Namus says it was 18.

    Theresa Kay Davis has DNA available but it doesn't say whether she is in Codis or not.
