I have lived in C.C. for over 40 years. I have watched lots of murders go unsolved. The people of delnorte and humbodlt need to realize we have and have had a serial killer or killers for years. At first I thought it was law enforcement.(the old team before the prison was built) If it was Miller who did the murder or who ever did...It wasnt there first. I say this because of the cover up of the evidence and the body. I have sat and watched many people voice there opinions. Im sorry for them and the hurting familys. If you would like to here the facts for the past 40 years of cover ups to murder I will spill my facts in the up and coming isues. I have been afraid for me and my kin but it has to be said. The people need to raise up and fight for good not the evil that is here!!! Pray for the souls of the good and let God deal with the bad. Believe in his justice! I know its hard to let go and let God. but its time

Um, guess you are left in the dark. You really need to start paying attention... because murders have happened a lot around here. When I was a kid, me and my brother found the remains of possibly two people out my Lake Earl near the boat launch. In 1990 or around that time, a woman named Kathleen and her child were murdered the bodies were uncovered on accident by someone behind Safeway in CC. The guy who was put away was "Al Airs". But the prob there was that he was with my mom during the time this murder supposedly took place, but my mom couldn't deal with law enforcement because she's terrified of public places or other situations. There was a murder and dismemberment of a little girl in the grassy fields behind Indra street towards Pacific Ave.. back in the 70's I think. The girl's last name is Gerling. The mentioned mysteries I personally know of ... have not yet been solved to my knowledge. And if they were.. those who did the murders are prob still alive and enjoying life right now. It may have been the dentists' son at the time who murdered the Gerling girl.

My brothers body was found in CC in 1965, still unsolved! I was very young at the time and didn't even find out that he had been murdered until I had been married with children. I don't even know where to begin to put some kind of closure for our family. My parents are both gone and have lost three more siblings since.

I don't live in Crescent City anymore. However, my father, Robert "Bob" Lee James did. From what little info the sheriff's office was willing to tell me he was last seen on Oct 3, 2011 by his boss Ray. Around Oct 16th, Ray went to check on him only to find the travel trailer he lived in empty. His wallet was found on the bed and there was no sign of a struggle. Supposedly, they did ground and air searches for two weeks before giving up. The officer I spoke with kept saying he didn't have anything as though I was only trying to get something out of it.My father lived off the beaten path and didn't drive. As much as it pains me to state, he is also a registered sex offender(if you have anything negative to say you know what you can do!). Yes, I have checked the registry and they have him in violation since July of 2011. He is still my father and I deserve closure. If anyone knows anything new about this case please comment. Any negative comments don't even bother posting.
