People Magazine Investigates the cold case involving the murder of a woman and three teens in Keddie, Cal., back in 1981.
It was in the spring of 1981 when 14-year-old Sheila Sharp arrived at the family cabin to find a grisly and devastating scene.
Her 36-year-old mother Sue, her brother John (15) and his friend Dana (17) were all dead, having been bound and mutilated. They had been stabbed, beaten and strangled – her younger sister was missing but sadly some of her remains turned up years later.
Perhaps the strangest part is that Sue’s youngest sons Greg (5) and Rick(10) were nearby in one of the bedrooms the whole time, with their friend Justin.
They claimed to have slept through it all but under hypnosis Justin described a dream he had. It that contained some details from the murder in it and he later said he did witness part of the attack.
Little or no progress was made with the investigation with a long list of possbile suspects and some obtuse behaviour amongst some of the small town residents.
Now more than 30 years later, the case might be closer to being solved. Some newly discovered evidence together with more advanced scientific techniques might be just what is needed to crack this grim case.
