This was sent to Josh H. in an email near the end of filming Part II:
Investigators [name withheld] and I went to the Piedmont Police Department and met with Det. [name withheld] regarding a similar homicide that occurred in their city in 1978. The victim, Lynette M., is the sister of Gary M. who currently owns the Keddie Resort. There were several similarities in the way that the victim died and the way that Glen [sic], John and Dana died.
The Piedmont Police Department case file indicates that the victim lived in her parent's house with her parents and her brother Gary. The parents were out of town. Gary was the last person to see the victim alive and the person who discovered her body. It appears that Gary left her at home and had gone to have lunch with some other relatives. Gary had left the residence at around noon and when he returned at around 1700 hours he discovered the body. The crime scene photos indicate that the victim's nude body was lying at the foot of a staircase with her throat cut. She also had several stab wounds to the upper chest and some bruising about the neck. Her body was lying on a curtain that had been torn down from the window but she was not bound. I reviewed the ME report and found that the wound to her throat was much wider and deeper than the wound to Glena's [sic] throat. The location, however, was almost identical. The report also indicated that there was no evidence of sexual assault.
The scene at the M. residence had evidence of ransacking but nothing was missing. The investigators believed that a burglary was staged by the suspect(s) with no signs of forced entry. The victim had a large dog that was said to be protective and not stranger friendly. The dog had no injuries or any other indicators that it may have been involved in protecting her owner during the attack or protecting the residence during the ransacking. The weapon used to murder the victim was a butcher knife that had been taken from the kitchen but had been washed by the suspect(s) and left in the dish drainer by the kitchen sink.
I also learned that she was a graduate of Quincy High School. After the graduation her father moved her back to Piedmont to get her out of that environment. After moving back to Piedmont, the victim was reported to be a quiet modest girl that didn't go out much.
After reviewing the case in Piedmont we determined there could be a link between our case and theirs. The Piedmont investigators and I agree that we need to establish the common denominator between the two cases. Piedmont has requested a list of names from our case to see if anyone from our area has had any contact with their agency or any dealings with the victim's family.
Here are two articles I found of the murder.
