Christmas Episode 3 - Maurin Murders

Christmas Episode 3 - Maurin Murders

By Shane L. Waters, Wendy Cee, Gemma Hoskins

Longview Washington, Friday 20 December 1985, The Daily News, lead with the headline ‘Congress bogs down in battle to cut federal deficit’.

The front page was filled with stories about property tax increases, economic growth, politics and at the very bottom, a story about the Winter Solstice.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that there were no crimes from reading this, but if you delved deeper through the pages of advertising and light hearted stories there were a few hidden in there.

Page 11, the Area News section contained headlines on the latest news about the local theatre redevelopment, and the local crab fishermans decreasing catches, then tucked right near the bottom of the page ‘Ethel couple disappears’.
