    What a horrible crime! I just had to mention how haunting it was to read about it with Moonlight Sonata playing in the background...

    There is this long blog article (obviously fictionalized in parts) about Thelma - it ends with: "Leland Morris was executed in the gas chamber at the Oregon State Prison in Salem on January 9, 1953."

    Terrible crime.That poor girl.
    I was looking at the rest of the 'Haunted Portland' site.
    Writer Mikal Gilmore brother of executed killer Gary Gilmore has written of a couple of different houses he and his family lived in,in Portland during his childhood that his family believed to be haunted.Weird.

    Yes, that was an interesting Blog post, awful crime though. Speculation was that she was held anywhere from 2 days to a week and raped repeatedly.
