More true crime! Yay!


He's sleeping with the fishes. She was washed ashore to the make the trail hard to follow.


P.S. No one will ever know the truth.

The details of the murder are vague, but I have little doubt that Chuck Rutherford murdered Lana and is still alive, and that he's being harbored somewhere by his parents. Supporting evidence for Chuck being alive and being harbored by his parents:

1. Chuck's parents WANTED the search for Chuck called off because they know where he is, and they know he's guilty! I mean, come on--he was their SON! Were he my son, I would exhaust every avenue of search! Here's the evidence for their wanting the search called off:

a. As reported in this blog, the Rutherford family turned down an offer to look for their son by helicopter, even though it would not be that expensive.
b. It was reported that an investigator offered his services for free, to look for Chuck. The Rutherfords turned him down.
c. The Rutherfords quickly pushed the courts to have Chuck declared
legally dead. (If he's declared dead, the search would be called off or at least minimized. PLUS, if he's declared dead, they would most likely inherit Chuck's estate, which would give them the funds needed to support Chuck in hiding.)
d. The press reported that C’s family seemed “relieved” when the judge pronounced C dead. Wouldn’t they be crying? Again--it was their SON! They were most likely relieved to know that the searches would be called off, or at least reduced in scope.
e. The Rutherfords refused to allow the Stempiens into the house that Chuck and Lana had shared. What did they have to hide?
f. Mr. Rutherford refused to work with Mr. Stempien to find Chuck. Why wouldn't they want to work together with the Stempiens to find their son? (Unless, as I've claimed, they know where Chuck is and they know he's guilty.)
