DEATH: August 18, 1983
April, 17, was a victim of the “Green River Killer”.
Women, many of them just girls, really, started disappearing in 1982. Some of them had histories of prostitution, and many were last seen along Pacific Highway South near Sea-Tac airport. By 1984, the number of dead or missing women reached 49, becoming the nation’s largest unsolved serial-murder case. In 2003 the case was finally solved with the arrest of Gary Ridgway.
