    Police seek tips about Oregon Coast cold cases
    "In the meantime, his stepdaughter Rachanda Pickle disappeared.

    New evidence suggested Ackroyd killed Melissa Sanders and Sheila Swanson, who went missing in 1992 during a camping trip north of Newport.

    Where is Pickle’s body? Did anybody see teenagers Sanders and Swanson on Highway 20 before they vanished in 1992?

    Investigators believe state highway mechanic Ackroyd is responsible for the disappearances of all three teenagers in addition to the murder of Turner. Ackroyd raped Marlene Gabrielsen in 1977, though he wasn’t charged in the attack.

    Decades have passed, but detectives hope that renewed attention to the cases might jog memories or provide new information that can shed light on what happened to the women.

    To the police and prosecutors who tracked him, Ackroyd is a confirmed serial killer."

    The Ghost of Highway 20 - a video production by journalists at The Oregonian about John Arthur Ackroyd and the people whose lives were affected by him. It's very moving. Rachandra's brother is amazingly strong and I was really touched by his participation. And Marlene Gabrielsen is just...wow. A survivor in all respects. She blew me away.

      • Age 13 years old
      • Height and Weight 4'7, 90 pounds

      ''In the autumn of 2013, Ackroyd reached a plea deal with prosecutors in Rachanda's death. He pleaded no contest in her death and agreed not to seek parole for Turner's murder and to decline release even if he became eligible.

      The plea deal was immediately sealed as per Ackroyd's request, and it didn't become public until March 2017. By then, Ackroyd was dead; he had died in prison in late 2016. He refused to disclose the location of Rachanda's body and his plea didn't require him to.''
