The Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders (Part Four)

The Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders (Part Four)

By Unresolved Productions

"We had no crime scene, just a body. What are you going to do?"

In July of 1979 - more than four years after the hitchhiker murders from Sonoma County had come to an end - a couple of grisly discoveries were made in the surrounding area. One came from the outskirts of Santa Rosa, Rincon Valley, while the other was made approximately 80 miles northwest, just outside of Willits.

Both discoveries would raise more questions than answers, and end up expanding not only the the chronology of the case, but the overall scope.
