    Karen Frances Fisher, 21 was last seen at Clam Beach on January 14, 1976 where she was trying to hitch a ride on Highway 101 to nearbyTrinidad, CA. Karen was wearing a green ski sweater, hiking boots, and may have been carrying a red vinyl raincoat & plastic purse. This case has received little attention; however a few articles exist.

    This is one of three women who were killed during a two year span 1975-1976 in that part of northern California. Some have speculated they could be related to the Santa Rosa Highway Murders. Worth taking another look with a fresh set of eyes. Did Zodiac perhaps move north? What about the other women who disappeared around Eureka, CA such as Claire Louise Christie, could some or all of these all be tied together?? Claire Christie has a thread on websleuths. It is time for these other women to be featured with threads of their own.

    These are great! The second link you shared regarding KF's murder mentioned the 20 rape-murders of hitchhikers on 101 between Sonoma & Mendocino Counties. I guess hitchhikers were disappearing around the country due to being easy to abduct, but clearly there was someone(s) trolling 101 in those days. I am really interested in the information in the second link about the pickup truck that was seen driving on Trinidad head on the morning of KF's murder. "Possibly 4 wheel drive with a metal ladder protruding from the bed, and racks over the cab to carry lumber.. it had something written on the side." According to police "four persons, including a woman, were in the vehicle". What that tells me is that several people know something. If that report is true.

    Nevermind about the pickup truck with the writing on the side, they were eliminated as a suspect. I feel strongly that it is a local to the area. That is if the person who took these women was the same as the person at the Garberville Fireman's Dance. Four women in nine months.. The Trinidad, Eureka and Blue Lake killings are all in close proximity, but Garberville is not. Smacks of a local, in my opinion.

    Hey there Mystic, I would love to read the clippings you mention about the other girls missing from Humboldt.

    I have a bunch of articles clipped on one of my newspaper accounts. You can see all those clippings here. https://www.newspapers.com/profile/myancestorseeker/ there are many. What other articles are you looking for. I have newspapers again but on another account. I can surely try to clip some you are looking for. You got some names?

    Thank you MysticJynx. One of the other disappearances that really bothers me is that of Vickie Lynn Schneider, and I read the article about her that was posted in the link you provided. I don't know if the bridge from Eureka to Samoa was built yet or if Vickie would have gone north on 101 to get to Samoa. I kind of sense that someone was watching her, maybe saw her hitch hiking and drove over to pick her up and take her out to the beach. Vickie was excited to go out to the beach for the day. Both Karen Fisher and Vickie both disappeared on their way to the beach. Was someone stalking the beaches?
