    On August 31, 1983, the nude body of Susan Eads was found lying in a ditch at NASA Rd 1 and Elam St. in Seabrook, TX. Susan was born in Mississippi but had lived for six years in Seabrook where she was a disc jockey and a waitress at the local Holiday Inn at the time of her murder. She was last seen the night of August 31, 1983 in Jason's Brown Saloon in Webster where witnesses say she refused a dance and a drink from a dark haired Caucasian man. Witnesses also observed her being followed to her car by a man. Her body was found the following day. She had been sexually assaulted, beaten and strangled.

    In 1987, while investigating the disappearance of Shelley Sikes, the 19 year-old who disappeared on her way home from work one night in Texas City, police made connections between the suspects in Sikes' murder, John King and Gerald Zwarst of Bayview, and Susan Eads. (About six weeks after Susan's murder, Zwarst was arrested at Jason's Brown Saloon for public intoxication.) As of 2007, neither King nor Zwarst had been charged in connection with Eads' murder. They are both serving life sentences for the aggravated kidnapping of Shelley Sikes whose body has never been recovered. Eads' murder remains unsolved.

    Gribble claimed to be “a killer with a
    conscience,” although that was never
    explained. He said Libby Jones was one
    of three women he killed. He had also
    been indicted, but never tried for the murder
    of Donna Weis, 23, whose remains
    were found in Galveston County 18
    months after she disappeared in June
    1986. Police were never able to confirm
    his claim of a third killing. At his trial prosecutors
    presented three other women to
    the jury who testified that he raped them
    too.

    (added by Bessie)
    From the Houston Chronicle, May 7, 1992 by the victim's sister, Vickie Weis Bolen

    On June 13, 1986, a year before he killed Libby, Tim Gribble murdered Donna Weis and left her in a plastic bag in a shallow grave. My family waited for a year and a half with very slim hope that she was alive somewhere.

    Donna's remains were found in November 1987 after Gribble confessed to his wife. There wasn't enough evidence left after 17 months to charge him with Donna's murder. My family had to watch like bystanders at Libby's trial; knowing that the jury would not know that not only was Gribble a serial rapist, but that he was also a serial killer.
    Now that the trial is over, I wanted the jury to know about Donna so they wouldn't feel any doubts about the verdict they had given. They were justified in their decisions that Gribble would be a future threat to society and that he did kill Libby deliberately.

    Shouldn't this be moved to post 26 in the uid thread?
    These decades are for missing persons and then to compare with the uids yes?

    I have ask a moderator to attach my post 70 with post 6 in the UID thread.
    And then to delete this posting afterwards.

    This thread is to list general information for all of the cases from the '80s, MrTT, missing, found murdered/identified, and found murdered/unidentified.

    If you want to make a comparison between a MP and a UID, then you post it in the UID sub-forum (the thread will actually be in the main Unidentified forum).

    Teen Slain in '82 Identified as Missing Conn. Girl
    I don't know if it means anything, but July 1, 1982, is the same day Tamara Ellen McCurry went missing.

    I am so excited for Tim Miller! I hope he gets some resolution. He has certainly paid more forward and deserves it.

    Who were the other victims you found with bite Mark's? I have been searching for others as well. That is definitely the signature of a serial killer. Pantyhose was utilized with this UID as well as a few others, so I have been trying to come up with a list where there was strangulation, bite Mark's, and the use of pantyhose, as these were most likely killed by the same person.
