The Lewiston / Clarkston valley has a rich history. Residents boast that the valley is the gateway to Hells Canyon, that Lewiston was Idaho's first capital. However, the valley also has a much darker past, one that many know about, but few publicly acknowledge. From 1979 to 1982, five people disappeared. Only three of the bodies have ever been found. All share one suspect.

I believe that M. William Phelps, on one of last season's episodes of "Dark Minds," profiled this case. I watched that episode, just like I've watched probably every other episode, so I am familiar with this story. I also used to live in Washington state, a state that has had way more than its share of serial killers, so that adds to the intrigue for me.

There is a prime suspect that is named here, but if I were to create a theme -- certainly orthogonal to what's portrayed here -- it would be, "Don't jump to conclusions." Yes, there were many coincidences that seem to point at him, but what if he is not the killer? Surely his life has been mostly ruined, as he supposedly moved to the east coast around the 1999 timeframe, surely to get away from this. If I were in his shoes, either innocent or guilty, I would have moved, say, around 1982. If he is not the killer, and it is later proven to be the case, he probably could win some lawsuits would be my guess.

There are some issues with this case, issues that I believe an ex-detective even implies here. One of the first bodies found was dismembered, put in several plastic garbage bags, and dumped in the river. Later on, two other girls who were killed were just dumped off of a hillside, and left intact. It usually is the case that serial killers don't change MOs or dumpsites too often, although it is true that Gary Ridgeway later admitted changing dumpsites after he watched the news and saw that "his" bodies had been found. But even he didn't change the WAY that he dumped bodies for the most part, and the differences with these disposals are profoundly different.

So many documentaries are low-fi amateur works.
This is not.
Cinematography is beautiful.
The musical score is serene and also suspenseful and spooky.
It's also under an hour long.
It was well worth watching for me...and I can be easily bored.

I like reading and watching about true crime. This documentary was interesting and very disturbing. If you're into true crime then this is definitely a documentary you will want to see. I only hope that one day the perpetrator is identified positively and/or brought to justice.

Excellent review of the crimes that happened from 1979-1982. The work that was done on the case and the fact that is still open.

I find this movie fascinating. I personally know many of the people involved, especially the suspect. It makes me shudder to think that I could have easily been a victim. Most people who lived in the area at the time, still aren't aware of the possible connection between the victims, and the fact that the suspect was a local guy who pretended to help search for the victims. Creepy! No wonder I don't let my kids out of my sight.

When murder reoccurs and no one is arrested, victims' families suffer additional horror. Poor police communication among jurisdictions harbors the suspect.

Very interesting documentary that covers the investigation thoroughly. The addition of the interviews make it that much more real, especially since I'm familiar with several of the interviewees. Shame they weren't able to nail the suspect before he moved.

I felt weak when I finished watching this documentary. The producers told the story so well. It's very upsetting, but beautifully presented.
