I thought they believed the husband was linked to the Christensen case but could never prove it?
Paul D Brown...WTH are you trying to say? Your post makes no sense at all.
I am a friend of Janice Christensen's husband's family, and he was never considered a suspect, nor should he have been. He had reported her missing, and when the police would not act on it right away, he went to all the places she usually would run at and searched for her himself. Their dog found the body, under some leaves. He was devastated by her death. It took him a long, long time to even partially recover. Although the family is sad the murder has never been formally solved, they do believe the guilty party was executed in Florida for a similar crime, but they cannot prove that.

I've been haunted by Barbs murder going unsolved all these years, my friend Tammy knew her well.I hung out with her one time during my senior year of High school and we all had fun. I remember barb telling me her grandmother predicted she wouldn't live to be old.Barb said she felt that her grandmother haunted their house,flickering the lights on and off.Later it was said by friends that Barbs late grandmother came to her mom in a dream the night she was killed,to say that everything was ok, and Barb was with her.I pray that someone will come forward.Everyone agrees that someone out there knows something.This is something I have strongly felt for a long time now.

Can you please tell me if Theodore had long brown hair?

My ex husband use to repeatedly confess to me, as well as others, especially when he was drunk, that he had murdered a man, at a bar. His confession was always the same, never varied, so I do truly believe that he did.

One day a cold case newscast came on the TV, back in the late 90s, with a mans picture, and my ex told me, completely sober, "that's the man I killed."

It is just one of the many reasons I fled my ex, and have been hiding from him for almost 2 decades. He was a terrifying man.

Reaching out...The Bike Trail...If I remember correctly, She was found near RT 303 on the bike trail.

As for Barbara Blatnik, I think she was another victim of Glenn Benner's, because of the way she was killed and the fact that she was at Blossom Music Center,where he killed another girl.
Hi I'm doing a story on Barbara Blatnik, I would love to hear why you think this individual Glenn Benner who be involved?
