IDAHO COPS SEEK KILLER IN 1978 SCHOOLGIRL MURDERS
The girls' bodies were found in a gorge in 1981 with
.22 caliber bullet casings. Two years later another skull was found not far from where the girls were discovered. Was this a serial killer's dumping ground? It's believed the murders are related. The sheriff believes the killer was known to the girls, that they willingly left the picnic, and that they were shot to death. Investigators have a large amount of the victims' hair, and Semrad is searching for a forensic laboratory that can sort through the fibers to see if any of them belong to potential suspects. That evidence could be used to show contact with the victims, he said.
