In the early 1980s several girls went missing in the Salem, Oregon area. Some disappeared with hardly a trace while others turned up dead. An 18 year old recent high school graduate disappeared while delivering pizzas on the night of July 4th, 1982 leaving behind her car with the engine still running. The hunt for her abductor would lead those working on the case down many paths, but no one expected how it would be connected to multiple murders years later. In today’s episode we explore the cases of Sherry Eyerly, Rebecca Darling, and Katherine Redmond; three young women who were taken when their lives were just beginning.
