First Name






15 2/13/03-GERING, Neb. (AP) -- Police arrested a man Wednesday in the death of a 15-year-old girl who disappeared a day earlier from her newspaper route.

Jeffrey A. Hessler, 24, of Gering was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, kidnapping, first-degree sexual assault and use of a firearm to commit a felony, the Scotts Bluff County Attorney's Office said.

News of the arrest came shortly after authorities confirmed that a body found in an abandoned house at Lake Minatare is that of Heather Guerrero. She went missing early Tuesday while she delivered Scottsbluff Star-Herald newspapers in her southwest Gering neighborhood near the Scotts Bluff National Monument.

A Nebraska State Patrol investigator and Scottsbluff police detective made the arrest and recovered a gun at that time, but no other details on the arrest or the suspect were immediately released.

Guerrero's body was found about 10 a.m. CST Wednesday by her uncle and another family member, Deputy County Attorney Doug Warner said at a Wednesday afternoon news conference.

Warner said the girl's body was found in the basement of the house. He would not speculate on how she died. An autopsy was to be conducted Thursday.

Last August, another 15-year-old girl who delivered papers for the Star-Herald was sexually assaulted while at work in the pre-dawn hours, police said. In that case, which remains unsolved, the victim was grabbed from behind as she delivered newspapers in the early morning hours.

Guerrero had celebrated her 15th birthday Saturday.











June 21, 1999 -- A jury will begin considering whether a man should be executed for stabbing Crystal to death with a fork. 

The jury convicted Martiez Davis, 21, of first-degree murder, attempted forcible rape and one count of armed criminal action. He was acquitted of a second count of armed criminal action.

In a videotaped confession played to jurors, Davis said he and a friend named Jeffrey murdered Crystal.

Davis said it was Jeffrey who slashed the girl's throat with a knife, but police do not believe Jeffrey even exists. And a medical examiner who performed the autopsy testified the girl's throat was slashed with a fork, not a knife.

Jessica Buckler 8

Highland Heights, KY -- Jan. 8, 1994 -- Jessica Buckler disappeared from her apartment complex Jan. 7, 1993, and was found a short time later. She had been stabbed to death. 

Garry Gampfer Jr., 17, a mentally challenged neighbor was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison. This was Gampfer's second trial. His first ended with a hung jury.

Michele Bright 17 Michelle Bright was sexually assaulted and killed in the early hours of February 27, 1999.  Her semi-naked body was found beside the road less than a kilometre from her home.

Susan Clarke 16

Chicago, IL -- A man serving a life sentence for killing a woman has been charged in the abduction, rape, shooting and evisceration of Susan and bragging of his crimes to other inmates, authorities said.

Ralph Andrews is already incarcerated for the death of 44-year-old Virginia Griffin whose body had been cut open and mutilated like Susan's had been and whose blood police found on his clothing days after she was stabbed to death.

"During a recorded conversation, [Andrews] said he picked up Susan Clarke, tied her up, sexually assaulted her, shot her in the head, then stabbed her and dragged her out of his car," Ruth said.

Police are also treating Andrews as a suspect in the murder of Amy who was killed five years before Susan and the murder of Arvella who was killed a year after Susan. The eviscerated remains of both victims were found in the Skokie area. 

Judge Edward M. Fiala has ruled evidence from Andrews' 1993 murder trial can be used in the current trial. In an attempt to show a pattern of violence, Byrne and Rogers also presented evidence from a 1973 trial in which Andrews was acquitted of the abduction and attempted murder of two 15-year-old Evanston girls. However, Fiala ruled he will not allow prosecutors to present evidence from a 1977 slaying in which Andrews was a suspect but never charged.

My Ly Nghiem 4 The tragic case of four-year old My Ly Nghiem, who was raped and murdered in Binghamton, New York, on June 9, 1995.   My Ly's assailant had three prior convictions for molesting young children.   He was working in her building as a "caretaker." 
Marciana Ringo 15 On Saturday, December 21, 2002 John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted featured Maryland fugitive Jamal Abeokuto.  Accused of the horrific kidnapping and murder of 8-year-old Marciana Ringo, Abeokuto is   considered to be armed and dangerous and has possibly fled to the New York or Philadelphia area.  Mr. Walsh, who’s own son was abducted and murdered over 20 years ago, said to a Baltimore news reporter, that the girl’s killing was brutal and the suspect is typical of the low-life criminals he hates the most.


Finley 4 Dannarriah Finley was last seen in the bedroom of her home in Orange, Texas on the morning of July 4, 2002. She was reported missing later that afternoon. It is unknown whether she was abducted from her bedroom or from outside of the residence.

Finley's body was discovered on July 8, 2002, in an isolated area on Pleasure Island in Port Arthur, Texas, approximately 27 miles from her residence. The FBI is looking for more information...

Jennifer Chia


Authorities would like to speak with anyone who may have information concerning the murder or abduction victims, Charles and Jennifer Chia, at or near the Timber Hills apartment complex in Southwest Reno, Nevada on October 18, 1989.

At approximately 3:20pm on October 18, 1989, Charles and Jennifer Chia, juveniles, exited their school bus near their residence in the Timber Hills apartment complex in Southwest Reno, Nevada.
After exiting the bus they walked across the street with a friend and were last seen walking toward their apartment. Charles Chia, at the time 8 years old with black hair, was wearing a long-sleeve white shirt, a blue pullover, blue jeans and was carrying a dark blue and red
backpack. Jennifer Chia, at the time 6 years old with black hair, was wearing a white dress with black dots, white socks, light green shoes and was carrying both a blue tote bag and a "Miss Piggy" lunch pail.

On July 25, 1990 the skeletal remains of Charles and Jennifer Chia were discovered in a shallow grave next to Highway 70 in Plumas County, California, which is approximately 50 miles from Reno, Nevada.






Sofia Silva 16 Richard Marc Evonitz died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Thursday, June 27 after fleeing from police through three states. Married and steadily employed, Evonitz was the recipient of two Navy Good Conduct Medals during his eight years in the service, according The Washington Post.

According to Columbia's newspaper, The State, Evonitz lured the 15-year-old girl from her friend's lawn by posing as a magazine salesman. Once she was close enough, he pulled a gun and forced her into a large rubber storage box in his trunk, drove her to his apartment, carried the box with her in it into his bedroom where, according to The Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star, he tied her up in a bondage device attached to his bed and assaulted her. Other details have been reported, but in the interest of not rehashing more than necessary for the sake of the young victim, I think I'll stop there-except to say that when Evonitz passed out or over-confidentally drifted off to sleep, the young girl escaped.

In only one respect was this girl fortunate-she got away with her life. Four earlier victims did not, and authorities now have evidence linking Evonitz with the 1996 kidnapping and murder of Sofia Silva, 16, and the 1997 kidnapping and murders of sisters Kristin and Kati Lisk, 15 and 12.

These crimes all occurred in Spotsylvania County, VA, and DNA evidence, according to The Washington Post, has established that the same person killed all three girls. There is also evidence linking Evonitz with the 1996 abduction and murder of student Alicia Showalter Reynolds. The Post reports that notes at Evonitz' apartment outline directions to the Lisk neighborhood and to the site where Reynolds' body was found.

Stroup 15 Stroup's head and other remains were found by a rancher north of Moriarty on Nov. 2, 2002. A dental radiograph comparison confirmed the remains were Stroup's. A later search turned up more remains that had been scattered by coyotes. Initially, investigators said animals were solely responsible for dismemberment.

Stroup's neighbor Kevin Jensen, 42, is in custody at the Estancia prison. Bond has been set at $100,000. He faces felony charges of contributing to the delinquency of minors and child abuse. He has not been charged in Stroup's death, although prosecutors have identified him as a suspect.

The pending delinquency charges accuse Jensen of supplying alcohol to Stroup and another neighborhood boy and allowing them access to pornographic Web sites on his computer.

Additional charges cannot be filed, Wellborn said, until more evidence is available. He is waiting for a report from the state crime lab, which is backlogged with cases requesting DNA analysis.




Kacie Rene



Conway, Arkansas, Dec. 6,2002-- Police in Conway say they suspect that a California man who apparently abducted and killed a 13-year-old Faulkner County girl before killing himself this week likely had kidnapped other children as well.

Conway Police chief Randall Aragon says an investigation into the Wednesday night deaths of Kacie Rene Woody and 47-year-old David Fuller will likely shed light on other cases nationwide.

Conway Police Lieutenant Mark Elsinger echoed that sentiment, saying it is doubtful that the abduction was Fuller's first. Authorities believe Kacie met Fuller in an Internet chat room and that the man likely deceived the girl into believing he was much younger.

The girl was apparently abducted Tuesday night, when her older brother
called police after finding the girl gone. The children's father, a Greenbrier police officer, was at work. Their mother died in a traffic accident five years ago.

Police acting on a tip Wednesday evening tracked Fuller's rented van to a west Conway storage unit, where they found Kacie and Fuller dead in an apparent murder-suicide.


Robyn Gillette 4 ADELANTO - Two employees of a company that transports bodies for the county Coroner's Office were arrested Friday afternoon after a 4-year-old Adelanto girl's body was used for sex, authorities said.

All-County Transportation employees Donald Luis Cooper Jr., 32, and Chaunee Marie Helm, 30, both of Hesperia, were arrested on suspicion of mutilation of human remains, authorities said.

According to the family, the girl suffered a seizure Wednesday night and had stopped breathing. She was taken by paramedics to the hospital and died at 9:22 a.m., coroner's officials said. Her body was taken to the county morgue in San Bernardino for examination, they said.

The girl's body then was taken to the Inland Eye and Tissue Bank so her corneas could be harvested. At 7:50 p.m., a technician conducting the operation noticed the girl's body had been sexually assaulted and notified the Coroner's Office, sheriff's officials said.

Coroner's officials then contacted the Sheriff's Department. Investigators with the sheriff's homicide and crimes against children details interviewed the girl's family and determined the assault did not occur at her home, authorities said.

Jones said her five other children were put in the custody of county Child Protective Services for more than 12 hours Thursday during the investigation.

Investigators interviewed coroner's personnel and other county employees and determined none were suspects, Beavers said. They then focused on employees of All County Transportation, she said.  Cooper and Helm were arrested at 4:30 p.m Friday at the Budget Inn Motel in Victorville, deputies said.
Xiana Fairchild 8 May 3, 2001-Convicted of kidnapping and sexually assaulting another little Vallejo girl, Curtis Dean Anderson says he's going to teach other inmates how to commit similar crimes. In a television interview, Anderson also said he has all the information authorities need to solve the Xiana Fairchild case.

Anderson, after being convicted of the kidnapping/molestation of 8-year-old Midsi Sanchez, confessed to having kidnapped and murdered Xiana Fairchild and kidnapped 10 other girls.

Anderson was also mentioned as a possible suspect in Swartz-Garcia's case. Investigators searched Anderson's mother's residence in June 2001 for evidence linking him to other missing girls' cases, but nothing was located.

Marilee Burt 15 Marilee Burt was walking home from a friend's house when she was murdered on Feb. 27, 1970. The 15-year-old was found strangled under a bridge on Deer Creek Canyon Road, southwest of Littleton.

An autopsy report showed that she had been sexually assaulted and struck on the head by a blunt instrument. Marilee, a member of the prominent Burt automobile family, had attended a middle school basketball game with her best friend when she decided to walk home from her friend's house. The best clue investigators uncovered was 10 feet of rope that apparently was used to strangle her.

Authorities thought they had a break in the case in 1981, when they briefly detained a man with a history of sexual assaults on girls. Ronald Bloom gave police a sample of his hair on May 31, 1981, so police could compare it with hair found in the rope at the crime scene.

Bloom was never charged with the crime and police have not come close to an arrest since.
Steven Wicks 10 Steven Wicks and Ronald DeFond: A passer-by driving in rural Adams County found the bodies of Steven and Ronald, two young boys kidnapped and murdered as they walked to buy ice cream at a
grocery store in central Denver the afternoon of March 8, 1980.

Steven, 10, and Ronald, 7, left Ronald's home around 2:30 p.m. to walk about a block for ice cream at a grocery story on East Colfax Avenue and Williams Street. The bodies of the two boys were found about 90 minutes later, dumped along Tower Road south of East 56th Avenue.

Each had been shot once in the head. Both boys later died at Denver Health Medical Center, formerly Denver General Hospital.

Sheriff's investigators say their prime suspect in the case died several years ago. However, the case has not been officially closed.

Tracy Marie

Neef 7 How did 7-year-old Tracy Marie Neef vanish from her elementary school and end up dead a quarter-mile west of Barker Dam near Nederland? It's a homicide that has puzzled investigators since the morning of March 16, 1984.

That's when Tracy's mother dropped her first-grader off at Bertha Heid Elementary School in Thornton. But school officials reported that Tracy never attended school that day. Her body was found around 5 p.m. about 30 feet from a road off Boulder County 119.

Next to Tracy's body were her school supplies. Her mother didn't realize her daughter hadn't made it into the school building until she went to pick up Tracy from school.

Authorities ruled that the girl died between 10 a.m. and noon. The official cause of death was asphyxiation.


Gray 5 Jon Morris was given a life sentence for kidnapping, raping and killing 5-year-old Ashley Gray in August 1995. DNA evidence helped obtain the conviction.




Mayra Estella Lopez's body was found burning in a trash bin in Northglenn on Aug. 26, 1992. The 12-year-old girl had been raped and strangled.

Thirteen months later, an Adams County grand jury indicted 17-year-old James Richard Bastin on charges of murder, murder after deliberation and sexual assault on a child.

The arrest of the Horizon High School junior came one year after police had interviewed him, along with dozens of other teenagers from the area.

After a two-day trial and three days of deliberation, Bastin was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
