To the daughter of the secretary Dorothy Cadwallader, I cant imagine the pain you have endured all these years and my prayers have always been with you. You were only 11 when she was taken from you and my heart goes out to you for the brief mention of your MOM in the article. I know it was just as tragic to you as to the Doctors family. God Bless you Melinda.... Your MOM would be so proud of you.....

I have to correct you and I on the spelling of Taura. Squires, as much as I agree with you on her writing, she did spell Taura correct. I talked to Lark this morning and she verified that for me.
And about you calling me an idiot...?

You know you need to go spend some alone time with your Rush Limbaugh doll. I don't know if you read but this guy was employed, Kemper was a local. Can't say I met Mullin [?] Have met David Carpenter, Terry Childs, and Royal Kenneth Hayes. Just to name a few. None of these people are one of Becky's transients. I think that if you were a little more educated you might have a conversation.
Personally I can't stand Limbaugh any more than I like the transients who litter our town like walking human excrement. Even worse than the transients are the liberals like you who feed them and therefore attract them to our town. There will be more murders committed by transients and if you are lucky, it won't be your family member who is next.

It's Tara, not Taura, and she left a young daughter after her death.
I just don't get the sloppiness of some Sentinel writers. Squires had the ability to review all of the original stories of the SC murders. The Ohta's were targeted, Kemper's mother and her friend were targeted, and at least five of Mullin's victims knew their killer and were targeted in his madness. Mullin did not select all his victims at ramdom.
Finally! Right. Her name was Tara & she was my friend in school. She went to NY after it happened (not before) and she wasn't in boarding school. I'm really positive it wasn't in 1970. Wasn't it before 1970??

Does nobody care that Frazier is dead?! That the poor man was depressed enough to take his own life?! People need to get off their moral high horse and pay their respects to this man. He had some ideas about things that are pretty interesting!

Once upon a time there were three billy goats, who were to go up to the hillside to make themselves fat, and the name of all three was "Gruff."

On the way up was a bridge over a cascading stream they had to cross; and under the bridge lived a great ugly troll , with eyes as big as saucers, and a nose as long as a poker.

So first of all came the youngest Billy Goat Gruff to cross the bridge.

"Trip, trap, trip, trap! " went the bridge.

"Who's that tripping over my bridge?" roared the troll .

"Oh, it is only I, the tiniest Billy Goat Gruff , and I'm going up to the hillside to make myself fat," said the billy goat, with such a small voice.

"Now, I'm coming to gobble you up," said the troll.

"Oh, no! pray don't take me. I'm too little, that I am," said the billy goat. "Wait a bit till the second Billy Goat Gruff comes. He's much bigger."

"Well, be off with you," said the troll.

A little while after came the second Billy Goat Gruff to cross the bridge.

Trip, trap, trip, trap, trip, trap, went the bridge.

"Who's that tripping over my bridge?" roared the troll.

"Oh, it's the second Billy Goat Gruff , and I'm going up to the hillside to make myself fat," said the billy goat, who hadn't such a small voice.

"Now I'm coming to gobble you up," said the troll.

"Oh, no! Don't take me. Wait a little till the big Billy Goat Gruff comes. He's much bigger."

"Very well! Be off with you," said the troll.

But just then up came the big Billy Goat Gruff .

Trip, trap, trip, trap, trip, trap! went the bridge, for the billy goat was so heavy that the bridge creaked and groaned under him.

"Who's that tramping over my bridge?" roared the troll.

"It's I! The big Billy Goat Gruff ," said the billy goat, who had an ugly hoarse voice of his own.

"Now I 'm coming to gobble you up," roared the troll.

Well, come along! I've got two spears,
And I'll poke your eyeballs out at your ears;
I've got besides two curling-stones,
And I'll crush you to bits, body and bones.

That was what the big billy goat said. And then he flew at the troll, and poked his eyes out with his horns, and crushed him to bits, body and bones, and tossed him out into the cascade, and after that he went up to the hillside. There the billy goats got so fat they were scarcely able to walk home again. And if the fat hasn't fallen off them, why, they're still fat; and so,

Snip, snap, snout.
This tale's told out.

The Truth? Indeed, here is THE truth; he was "depressed" that he was caught.
Do not fall victim to the logic of the mad.

Couldn't one of them attack him? If they all did this they may have been able to grab his gun and shoot him first. The boys must have been in tears seeing their father dead in the pool. Surely the killer was satan. God rest their souls. Poor Lark I read that she has 4 children of her own now.
How terrible to live a life without parents and her grandmother killing herself is heartless. I will never forget this killing and feel like I knew the doctor. I have always loved and respected doctors.

Oh thank you for responding! I'm fairly positive it was my freshman year at Soquel High. Tara & I were friends as well. It seemed a short time after school started that it happened. I was so shocked and then her relatives took her to New York. I didn't get to say good-bye to her. That would have been the fall of 1966. For years I wondered what happened to her. I remember sitting at the picnic tables with her at lunchtime. When I became a criminal prosecutor I stumbled across the court case one time. It brought back memories, but it really told me things I didn't know at the time.

Is it possible that there's a typo in the court case for change of venue?? It's happened before but it's unbelievable. It's impossible that it happened in the fall of 1970. I was graduated from high school then. It's not possible.

I was the person who ended up with your mother Dorothy's job at the Water street medical office. I went to work and her hame sign was still on her desk-was the same as my name. Today I was thinking about it, looked it up and found that it was exactly 40 years ago today that you lost your mother. I am so sorry, never having known either of you but have thought about it for so many years. I hope you have found peace in your life and know that many prayers have been sent to you & your family.

Frazier was damaged goods from the start. A friend lived with him in a foster home back in the 1960's. He broke into a gun cabinet, took a rifle, and killed the family dog. From there I think he went on to California Youth Authority and much worse deeds.

JF worked for my dad as a mechanic on Ocean Street and Dr. Ohta was our eye doctor, so I have very vivid memories of that time. I was six or seven years old. JF had a wife and two small kids whom we had over for dinner in our home during his employment. He was a drug user and later quit working for my dad since cars were "contributing to the death cycle of the universe."
JF was sighted hiding out near our home in the remote SC Mountains after the murders. I vividly remember the terror of the murders, his proximity to our home afterward, the SC sheriff's dpt making sure he wasn't hiding in our home after we'd been gone. I remember the concern every time he would come up for parole, that he would be released. We were concerned because of comments he'd made about my father and we knew he was unpredictable when he was using.
I'm glad it's over and I still hurt for the Ohta family.
