I'm not arguing and I didn't say the guy disappeared and couldn't be tracked down. The story was, the cleaning crew at the Sacajawea lodge, came across a bloodied room, the owner and the crew thought, a poacher had used to room to butcher a deer. They gutted the room . Kristen's body hadn't been found, and when police did go to the hotel sometime later it had even been repainted. You have the law enforcement connections, you tell me? The Sacajawea lodge wasn't a 5 star hotel, it was one of many dives..any teenager could rent for a party.

Yeah,ive ran into a couple of folks who wanted to argue with me that the site of Kristen David's death was definitly established but somehow the guy disappeared and couldnt be tracked down.
As I recall even in the 80's you had to show some I.D and often have the clerk write down your plate number to rent a room.
But apparently some still believe this.

Idaho Spud,

By now I'm sure you have learned the name of the suspect. I follow a group on Facebook called LC Valley Serial Killer and they post lots of interesting infomation about him and the trail of missing women that follow him. From California in the 70's, LC Valley in the 80's and most recently North Carolina. If you haven't seen it, you should check it out.
I'd join a search party. This guy needs put away.

I am a family member and Idaho Spud along with another researcher put together the Facebook page and the above link. We put these sites together to make the public aware of these cases, to perhaps get tips that would help and to keep these cases from going cold again. There is also a documentary on the five cases

Thank you for offering to help with the search we will be posting a date of the search soon.

Murder victim’s family wants Civic Theatre floor examined

By Stephanie Smith Watch the video LEWISTON - One woman's passion to solve local cold cases brought together victims’ families of the so-called Lewiston serial killer for the first time over the weekend.
Clarkston's Eddie Rand runs a website: http://missing87975.yuku.com , about unsolved Northwest cases. Much of the posts revolve around several murders in the L-C Valley between 1979 and 1982, victims of a suspected serial killer.
"The police believe there is one common suspect for all of these cases," said Rand.
And it's this connection that brought the families of Kristina Nelson, Steven Pearsall and Christine White together.
21-year-old Kristina Nelson and 18-year-old Brandy Miller disappeared along with Steven Pearsall from the Lewiston Civic Theatre in 1982. Rand said Nelson and Miller went together to the theater to pick up Nelson's laundry. Steven Pearsall also reportedly was at the theatre, where he worked, also doing laundry in the basement.
The three were never seen alive again.
Over a year later, the bodies of Nelson and Miller were found in Kendrick. But Pearsall's body was never found and his family doesn't think he ever left the theater.
"His son may be buried under the dirt floor in the basement of the Civic Theatre," said Rand. "It had been dug up and there was fresh dirt leading up the stairs”
The family said their requests to check out their suspicions have been denied.
"We tried to get a search team in here, but the Civic Theatre wouldn't give him permission to come in," said Rand. "They denied it, saying they didn't want the negative publicity."
Nelson's cousin, Gloria Bobertz, said she wants the cases reopened and new forensic testing done. Especially on the rope that Nelson and Miller were found bound by, because the family suspects it's the same rope that was found at the Civic Theatre.
"The police, they are saying that they have one shot and one shot only at this case and I think that after 27 years, take the shot," said Bobertz. "There is circumstantial evidence and it might save another family grief."
Rand said the person they suspect is the killer lives on the East Coast now and works as a mail carrier.
"I do not want to convict a person who's innocent but I don't want a guilty person running the streets, especially with the nature and heinousness of these crimes that were committed here."
Rhonda Albright is Steven Pearsall's sister. She said her family needs closure.
"To finally find his remains and give him a decent memorial, know where he is, for sure where he is and not have this constant wonder,‘where is he?,’" said Albright.
Rand said she talked to the Civic Theatre again Tuesday and hopes the request to allow a infrared search team into the basement will be granted by the LCT Board of Directors this fall.

I can only say that as a distant family member the case of Kristina Nelson and the other two victims has haunted me my whole life. As a young child I remember the local authorities placing the family members under the radar. We were followed around town as we looked for any evidence that might have helped them solve the case. I am dissapointed that this case still has not been solved.....my heart aches!
Do you know who that distant relative may be sir?

Crescent Crow -
I have been a resident of the LC valley since 1994. Until yesterday, all I knew of these murders was what I had read in the newspaper over the years. Yesterday I was researching the (unrelated and solved) murder twenty years ago of a young woman whose remains were found on property we owned elsewhere in the state, and I came across this thread. I am amazed at what you have accomplished. In reading the thread, I noticed a couple of things that I would like to mention to you in case you hadn't noticed them. Also, intrigued, today I drove to the domed houses and to the house in Asotin from which the young girl disappeared in 1979. I tried to imagine what the POI would have done once he had the opportunity to muder this young girl. I have some thoughts on that, as well, if you are interested.
I do not wish to share this on this thread, so if you could provide me with an e-mail or private place to chat, I'd be happy to share my thoughts, if you are interested. I will give you the information you need to identify me and verify that I am not a nut.
Please go to the authorities with the information.NOT Cresentcrow.

I DID NOT REALIZE all these years others were as outraged as I am...I am Brandi Millers mother, and Kristi's stepmother. Yes my heart goes out to all the other families too. I recieved emails on classmate.com this very evening, regarding this.
Is the suspect an Architec? if so I knew about him when this happened, but police cleared him.
When I tried to have more done on this case, my remaing family recieved verbal threats. Becareful
not to stir too hard or step on toes, and Mabell, I did try to get some sort of justice for my daughters, and was told to back off! "Unsolved Mysteries" was told to back off also. This seems to be a person with some pull some place.
Get Cresentcrow out of the way of the investigation.Gloria is hiding the truth.
