Do I remember right that Lorraine did some kind of housekeeping for a nursing home or hospital? As for if it was Lorraine or not, the important thing is that we may have been contacted by someone who has a link to Marvin Markle, one of the suspected killers, and Pack Pony and Gem stressed the reward. Justice took the pic down that has a kid in it, which is fair. It's good that the Markle tribe knows we have not forgotten De Anna Lynn Johnson.

Calling for Christine... our realtor friend who can run real estate sales through her computer program:

I find James W. Zimmermann (the ONE,) at this address in Stockton:

2002 Tennalinde Ln.
Stockton, Ca. 95201

Found this on ZabaSearch Maps.

Zimmermann's wife Judith is listed as a relative, as well as other names we have seen associated with him.

Would you please try to find information to see if he sold this house and the date? Thank you!

I really really think we need to focus on finding Joe Silva at this time and see what he's doing now, and if he's ready to do a little talking to us on here, or maybe even better, to the authorities for the reward money........

I agree that we should find Joe Silva and it's possible that he came back to Vacaville after being gone. He was said to be in Connecticut at one time. His mother is Mary Jane Silva, so if we find a Joe Silva, notice if he has a relative named Mary Jane. Joe Silva is such a common name. If he moved away and moved back, he might not even know about the reward and that we still care about solving this case.

Good idea to put all the puzzle pieces in place on Zimmermann. He's been a loose end for us because we have no residence location for him. Still, though, there's the Radio Shack in Santa Cruz that has "Jim Zimmerman" listed as the manager and I bet that's him. His wife, Judith, died in Stockton in 2007, so that address may have been their home when she died. Next, he went to Santa Cruz???

His wife was born and raised in Santa Cruz, if I'm not mistaken. I believe I read that.

Ah, smart idea, there. Yes, James Manzer. I think he was Mary Jane's brother. I do remember the scholarship post. All you have to do is google his name and Vacaville and I think it's a link you can click on. Sure, let's look for Mary Jane Manzer and see what we get.

I am finding several Mary Manzers but no tie-in with James. Hey, guys, remember that James Manzer died in an ATV accident up in Winters,I think, in 2006??

Did we get directed to an obituary on that death? I've been googling for an obit. and can't find one. I think his wife's name was Joan. I did locate a "in memorial" mention in a club newsletter with his name listed.

Thanks, Orygun, for your good memory. If we can track down Manzer's obituary, maybe it will mention family names and then we can look for Mary Jane. Mary Jane Silva was related to him, and her son, Joe, hosted the party where De Anna was killed. Manzer was Joe's uncle in some way. That is very confusing.

B**** what is a long time? A month is a long time? You need to quit hittin the meth with Marv ok, because we have all been on your FB page in the last month, when you changed your pic about four times. It's been you and Marv, it's been a dog aka Marv it's been numerous things, along with you changing your name, so STFU with your lies. I don't have to say anything to feel better about myself. Knowing that we are getting under your and the Ziggsters skin, as well as trying to find justice for De Anna and her family is more than enough to make me feel good :-) LMAO at you and Marv's lawn yard service being friends on FB till someone sent you a message, then all of a sudden, out of the blue, even though YOU DON'T TALK TO HIM AND HAVEN'T BEEN ON FB IN "A LONG TIME", HIS PAGE IS DELETED AND HE MOVES HIS ADVERTISING TO MYSPACE, A PLACE FOR WHORES! COINCIDENCE, I THINK NOT! Keep it up Lorraine. You see how well it ended for De Anna.

Ya, that's him. I cut his kid and the other kid out so Lorraine wouldn't pee herself again.
