NJ - David Emerich, 32, & Bonnie Pellicer, 24, Camden, 2 Feb 1980

I apologize if this is posted elsewhere, but when I searched I was unable to find any mention of this.
On February 9, 1980, Bernice Raymond went to a house used by David Emerich, a 32 year old sex film producer and convicted cocaine dealer. Ms. Raymond's 24 year old sister, Bonnie Pellicer, lived with Emerich. Bonnie, from a prominent St. Augustine, FL family, was a law student.

In the kitchen, Ms. Raymond found blood-stained meat cleavers and knives along with pools of dried blood. A bullet from an automatic pistol was lodged in a cupboard. Near the basement furnace she found a pool of blood and a cutting board containing what was later determined to be human flesh.

Later articles mention a bloody chainsaw.

There a several newspaper articles regarding this case.




Neither are listed in NamUs, Charley Project or Doe Network.

The "sex film producer" description of David Emerich isn't exactly accurate. He produced movies with sexual themes, and his most recent one prior to his disappearance was R-rated. Maybe he also produced porn.

I wonder how a young law student from a prominent family got hooked up with a convicted cocaine dealer?

From the description of the crime scene I'd say this one is definitely drug-related.

I knew David and Bonnie at the time.

They both visited my home several months prior to their disappearance although I did not hear about it until some time later that year.

I know how David and Bonnie met.

David did mention going to CA but never said anything about making a film.
