Wow, Starless - you are on the ball! I just woke up and this is the first article I read while perusing the paper. I came to post here and BAM - you already did. That is only one reason why I *heart* you so much!!

It sounds like her parents have kind of moved on. I wonder what it would take to get her into some databases. Maybe an email to Meaghan @Charley project would start things up?


eta: Okay - emailed it to Meaghan to see if she wants to put her up.

I wouldn't call me on the ball. This is the first I've been on all week. Have had a very bad flu bug. Just getting to where I can even function at all.

I think that would be great if she puts her on charley project.

Suspect had prior, lived in CA did time.. 42 in 1978. Makes me think of Anna Waters and there was another girl from that area... There's a memorial headstone, but don't think she was recovered that we researched........

-----------------------------

Police were close to arresting the truck's owner, a Lebanon resident named Earl "Woody" Chambers. Chambers, 42, had served time in a California prison for rape and assault. In both cases, his victims were young women. He also had undergone court-mandated treatment in a state mental hospital.


Chambers owned a red pickup that had a trailer. He worked as a roofer on jobs in Corvallis and West Salem.
