I remember as a teenager when this monstrosity happened. I thought Janet Taylor looked so pretty in a print dress on the front page of the Pali Alto Times and just couldn’t understand this. My father looked at the paper and said “if they find the guy who did this they should march him straight into the gas chamber”. There was some speculation that Ted Bundy may have been involved but it turns out that the culprit was sitting locally—in almost plain view for decades. So sad. I’m glad justice wasn’t finally done but it feels so late.
