    Found murdered, stabbed multiple times.

    While looking in to something else I was finding a lot of information about Crystal Lynn Baker.
    She was found in the same vicinity as another unsolved Durham murder that has a thread here (http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?18907-NC-Michelle-Royall-32-Durham-27-Jan-2005). Her name is Michelle Spencer. They were found the same time of year, in the same area.

    Crystal was stabbed multiple times.

    Here is a link to Crystal's Durham PD Cold Case: https://durhamnc.gov/354/Unsolved-Homicide---Crystal-Baker

    Her photo from her "hometown" Sailisbury, Maryland, news is very different from her posed Durham PD photo.

    I am starting this thread to dump all the info I find on Crystal in one place.

    I can't help but wonder whether there's an actual connection in these two cases. On the surface the only similarity seems to be where they were killed. The race of the victims and method of death are completely different. The method of death is what really gets me since a murderer doesn't usually change their weapon, especially to go from shooting (more impersonal) to a knife (really personal - and she was stabbed mutual times which usually indicates anger).
