    I found some information on a Suzanne A. Bomardier. She was 14 at the time of her kidnapping. She was babysitting at her sisters apt.in Antioch Ca., the childrens ages were 5 and 6. She had made a phone call to a friend at 1:30am that Sunday 6-22-80. Everything seemed to be ok at that time,shortly after that call she disappeared ,her death is listed as 6-27-1980. She was an honor student at Antioch High School. Her body was found nude in the San Joaquin River on Friday the June 27th, so my guess is that she was killed sometime between the 6-22 the 27th ? Her overnight bag and shoes were still at the apt. No sign of a break in. If anyone has information on this cold case , please contact Antioch Pd. I have not found any new news about this case, but would like to learn more about it. It is very much like the Elaine Davis case in Walnut Creek, less than 20 miles from Antioch. Her body was found in Water near Santa Cruz Ca. also unsolved.

    This is my hometown, and was still quite small back then. Everyone knew each other. I'll have to pick the brains of family members to see what they remember.

    Former Antioch police officers want to work on the cold case of Suzanne Bombardier, who was 14 when she was murdered on June 22, 1980, after being kidnapped, raped and stabbed through the heart. Her body was later discovered after being dumped in the river.

    Greg Glod, a former Antioch Police Detective, who spent 26 years with the Secret Service and is now the Deputy Director for Threat Analysis of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., is spearheading the effort. Joining him are retired Antioch Police Sgt. Larry Hopwood and Detective Ron Rackley (more at link).

    Thank goodness for the detective work that finally put Suzanne's killer behind bars. The articles that are being published since the verdict really fill in some answers as to how he was affiliated with Suzanne and what may have transpired on the night she disappeared. MB is a monster, he has quite a rap sheet too. Makes me wonder what else is he responsible for. He was active during the time of the Zodiac.

    Just found this thread & would like to know if anyone can get into this court site:
    www.cc-courts.org

    I have access denied. I see from a Feb., 2018 article that he was arraigned then. Since it's California I'm thinking he has not been tried yet. The only articles that come up is the one in Feb., & the rest are from Dec. 2017.

    TIA!

    This man has caused nothing but carnage all his life. I hope he gets the death penalty, and soon. Keep his dna on file, because he's probably been busy all these years.

    Yes, his name is Mitchell Lynn Bacom & he is 63, 37 at time of crime. I have in my notes that San Mateo County Sheriff's forensic lab ran the DNA profile. But have Contra Costa as the county where he is. He was arrested on 12/11/17 & arraigned on 2/8/18. That's all I have! :)
