    23 year old Heidi Villarreal Fye was a cocktail waitress, last seen on October 10th 1983.

    Her remains were found in the League City, TX Killing Fields on Calder Rd. after a dog carried her skull to a nearby house on April 4, 1984. She had vanished six months earlier after walking from the home of her parents to use the phone at a nearby convenience store. The medical examiner noted Fye had broken ribs and had been beaten with a club. She may have died from blunt force trauma to her head. Fye and Miller disappeared from the same convenience store at Hobbs & W Main in League City, Texas. Also the very same duplication of arrangement of the cadavers, laying on their backs nude with their arms crossed over their chest.

    Bridgette Gearen, 28 - Murdered in Crystal Beach, TX 07/15/2007

    Gearen was invited to spend the weekend with four couples and their children at a rented beach house near the intersection of Redfish Road and Crystal Beach Road. The group decided to go out for a late night ride on the beach around midnight. Gearen left her daughter behind when she walked out of the house a few minutes before her friends.

    By the time her friends followed her outside, within minutes, she was gone.

    The friends called law enforcement a few hours later, but the body had already been discovered by the campers about an hour before, about 100 yards from the beach house where she was staying.

    Gearen’s death was ruled a homicide caused by manual strangulation and blunt force trauma. She was also the victim of sexual assault.
