    I turned over a copy of my dossier to Sheriff Allman. Let's hope for results.

    Craig and Christin married 26 Sep 1980 in Sonoma County, CA. I found two records and both spell Christine's name without an e on the end.
    She has two different surnames indicating she was probably previously married:
