Sometime later, the friend walked Georgia to a gas station near the intersection of Sebastopol Road and Dutton Avenue in Santa Rosa, where the friend said Georgia left with an unidentified man. It was the last time she was seen alive. More than a week later, on August...

BOB CRANE was found murdered in his Scottsdale apartment on June 29, 1978, his skull bashed in with a blunt object and an electrical cord around his neck. His death — and the sordid revelations that followed — stunned Hollywood, his fans and his family.

The one-time Los Angeles radio personality had only one hit television show, and...

Hello! This new site is fantastic. Thank you to the Admins for the new look. 🙏🏼❤ I wanted to re-create a thread here that was on the last crimewatchers.net site and is no longer 😢 in 2015, I was very interested in looking back into the West Mesa Bone Collector case. I have an admittedly OCD fascination with tracking serial killers who have yet to be apprehended and theorizing their movements/potential victims etc. With that being said, I decided to attempt a comparison between the West...

Just starting another thread since one hasn't been re-started since the crash of '20. The SFPD said, soon after the GSK was nabbed, that they'd use a similar technique with the Zodiac's DNA. Due to the amount of time that has passed, I'm assuming nothing came of it.
