    CA - Lynn Connes, 20, Berkeley, 20, May 1976

    This case reminds of on that happened in California in 1984-a woman met a guy about an apartment he had to rent and was found dismembered. But no one has ever found Lynn.

    Lynn was last seen at her residence in the vicinity of the 2800 block of Regent St. in Berkeley, CA. She left her residence to meet a man at a restaurant in the vicinity of the 2600 block of Telegraph Ave. An unidentified waitress indicated that a woman matching Lynn's description came to the restaurant at 10:15am. Although the restaurant was closed, the waitress let her sit at a table to wait for someone. No one saw the woman leave the restaurant. Law enforcement found Lynn's locked bicycle near the restaurant.
    According to Charley Project, she was meeting a man called "Jeff" for a photography shoot.

    Some more background...

    A photo of Lynn Ruth Connes can be found at Find A Grave and shows she was originally from North Carolina.


    Thomasville City Cemetery
    Davidson County
    North Carolina, USA

    An article from the Kannapolis Daily Independent September 4, 1983 shows that her mother Celeste Connes was an organist at the Greet Street United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem, NC.

    Under the flowers section, a note was left: "I dont know who took you, but I am researching the possibility of Rodney Alcala. I hope your family gets closure someday."

    Wikipedia shows that serial killer, Rodney Alcala, was possibly still in prison at the time of Lynn's disappearance.
