Randy Kraft and his unidentified victims have been mentioned in some threads of this forum. I have been reading and searching information about him for a while, and thought it would be useful to get it all under one thread title. I have only speculated on bits and pieces so far, and would be happy to have other opinions and get the discussion going. The crime library article about Kraft is here http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/serial_killers/predators/kraft/1.html and an article about Kraft's scorecard, which I will refer to, is here http://articles.latimes.com/1988-10-02/local/me-4891_1_kraft-case-randy. To start with the unidentified victims already connected to Randy Kraft, there were five of them at the time of the 1988 article, but Airplane Hill John Doe of the scorecard was identified as Kevin Clark Bailey in 1995 (http://articles.latimes.com/1995-03-04/local/me-38689_1_clark-bailey), which leaves us with four UIDs: 1. Wilmington John Doe, found in February 6, 1973. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1155umca.html 2. Hawth off head John Doe, found in April 22, 1973. Crime library article mentions this UID, but I haven't been able to find his information elsewhere - not in Doenetwoek nor in NamUs. It's possible that he has been indentified, but I haven't found any confirmation of that either. 3. 76 John Doe, found in August 29, 1979. https://identifyus.org/cases/4400 4. Portland Eck(?, Elk according to Doenetwork) John Doe, found in July 18, 1980 in Oregon. http://doenetwork.org/cases/1281umor.html Of missing persons who might have ended up as victims of Kraft, Johnnie Joe Herrera is a possibility which has been discussed in the 1970's missing section in Herrera's own thread. I was thinking that Roger C. Levell might have been one of Kraft's victims, more specifically the "Angel" on the scorecard, because according to Doenetwork, he had a tattoo Angel on right arm. However, Charley Project states that he went missing in 1978 instead of Doenetwork's 1971, and even that the tattoo on the right arm was a picture of an angel. Changed information doesn't perhaps completely disprove my "theory", but it does make it more uncertain - and at the moment I'm not even sure which site has the correct information. Here are the links: Doenetwork: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111211 Charley Project: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/l/levell_roger.html I haven't gotten very far with connecting Kraft to other unidentified victims, but one hot case at Doenetwork seemed promising. The victim was found in February 14, 1973 My attention was caught by the fact that he apparently had been wearing only socks and boots, and that the shoelaces of the boots were missing. Randy Kraft collected souvenirs from his victims - belts, shoelaces, clothing etc. The Doe Network: Hot Case 1230 No Image Available Unidentified Male The victim was discovered on February 14, 1973 in Yolo County, California Estimated Date of Death: June 1972 Decomposed, partial skeletal remains Vital Statistics Estimated age: 40-70 years old Approximate Height and Weight: 5'10" Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown hair.

Case Number: 3214-22-1973 Source Information: Yolo County Coroner Office http://www.doenetwork.org/hot/hotcase1230.html So, that's all I've come up with so far. I apologize for subjecting you all to such a mammoth of a post with links and all :truce:! I hope you forgive me anyway - I preferred squeezing all my notes in one post instead of double or triple posting, since there are many aspects in this case and yet they are closely connected. I personally believe that the unsolved notations on Kraft's scorecard mean there are lots of unfortunate young men still out there somewhere, without anyone knowing about them or having enough information to connect the dots - and it's really sad!
