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.

This was a very well written investigation film that kept my attention throughout. As with any unsolved crime documentary you are left at the end wishing you had the answers, but I went into it know that it was unsolved so it was no surprise.

I'll be hated on by the righty tighties for this. In my view, this is a simple case of police ineptitude. Can't tell the difference between the lead in the paint and blood, geez! How about you do some further tests, might that work? And did anybody see gloves on anyone going through the garbage bags found at the river, I didn't.

Un-rehearsed, candid interviews make this especially poignant. The aerial landscapes help Easterners (like me) comprehend the vast countryside, both its beauty and its desolation. (I live nearby in Montana for part of the year and did not detect a false note.)
I wish we were told more about the Person of Interest, but maybe we were told all there is.

the movie is a definite non-story. people were found murdered, some missing. there is absolutely no real link (presented in the movie) indicating these cases were related though. the movie is mainly a long series of people from the same general geographic area, saying things like "i dunno, ya know, it was sad. i'm still sad, they should catch that guy. i dunno,,," there's no finished project here.

i watched it all, even when it was clear these cases weren't going to end up as anything, because i thought perhaps eventually we would see something psychologically interesting in the way these victims' families cope in these non-cases. but there wasn't even that as cohesion/insight.

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.
