Cold Case Review

Posted on 26th September 2013 at 15:57

Cold case investigators are checking into three Lewis County homicides from the 80’s and 90’s, checking to see if those cases may be connected to the Green River Killer, Gary Ridgway. The bodies were found near I-5 in August of 1984, May of 1985 and August of 1991. All three women were from the Pierce-King County area, and were either prostitutes or transients. This follow-up was reported over the weekend in the Centralia Chronicle. The body of Monica Anderson, 32, of Tacoma was found in the Chehalis River on August 12, 1984; a transient named Susan Krueger, age 41 or 42, was found near Toledo in May of 1985, and Mignon Hensley, 21, was found near Highway 12 in August of 1991. All three fit the profile of Green River Killer victims; Ridgway is currently serving multiple life terms in prison after admitting to killing 49 women over a multi-decade spree. He avoided the death penalty by agreeing to show authorities where he had dumped bodies, but he could once again face a death sentence if he’s convicted of a murder outside of King County. It’s speculated that Ridgway doesn’t remember all of the women he’s killed, or where he dumped all of the bodies.
