No, he called her at home and work.

Later, after she was murdered, he would call her parents.


Ok thanks Betty

Does anyone know if she originally started receiving the calls while she was home? or did they start occurring while she was at work?

Were these obscene phone calls ? or threats ? I've seen them described differently.

I am not sure if they were obscene, but more threatening, like a maniacal jealous person.

Her stalker would have had to have been literally following her pace in the car to see she was going into the hospital with her work colleague. This means he was waiting outside wherever her work meeting was, followed her from there, waited all those hours for her to come out of the hospital to collect her car by herself (huge risk as they could have all walked to the car together), to then jump her. Dorothy, Pam and her male colleague, Conrad were probably in too much of a panicked state to notice someone was tailing Dorothy's car.

So, I wonder if there were any cars left in the car park overnight? Not that we will be able to ever know or tell given how long ago it was, but he couldn't have followed her on foot, which means he would have had to have come back to the hospital at some point to collect his car.

He also seemed to know about the spider bite. Pam claims Dorothy didn't leave her side all night except to use the bathroom before leaving, so how did he know? Doesn't mention if Pam or Conrad had called anyone to inform them.

Dorothy's car was found abandoned some ten miles away in a Santa Ana alleyway. Burning. So, how did they get from the alleyway to wherever they ended up? Did the killer live in Santa Ana? How did he manage to keep Dorothy quiet at that time? Doesn't seem as if police interviewed residents in the area about seeing the car or anyone suspicious.

I been trying to find out where in Santa Ana the car was dumped and if POI, Mike Butler, lived near by. I am sure investigators looked into it but did not have enough info to charge him.

This is why I believe it was someone who worked with her or did at one time. She also recognized the voice but couldn’t place it.

Or someone related to, living with a coworker.

Probably someone she knew or recognized and saw regularly. It made it easier for them to approach her in the parking lot, get close enough to abduct her.

Possibly an ex-coworker as she must have been on high alert given all the calls and would have recognised the person's voice. It doesn't say anywhere whether previous employees were interviewed, either.

Get GEDmatch or something involved. Christ, this case infuriates me to no end.
