CaseEdit

Details: On October 10, 1983, 23 year old cocktail waitress Heidi Fye mysteriously vanished while walking from the home of her parents to a convenience store. On April 4, 1984, Heidi's remains were located in Calder Field near League City, Texas, by a woman walking her dog. The medical examiner determined that she had broken ribs and beaten with a club, and probably died from blunt force trauma to the head. On February 2, 1986, four boys riding bikes smelled a foul odor and located the skeletal remains of an unidentified female and called the police. She was dubbed "Jane Doe" and it was determined that she had died six weeks to six months before being found, and was shot in the back, possibly from a .22 caliber weapon. She was described as 25 years old, 5'5 to 5'8, 140 to 160 pounds, and had reddish brown hair and distinct gap in her teeth. She was located in Calder Field just 50 yards from where Heide Fye was found. Then, while police were searching for more clues in the case, they came upon another body just twenty yards away from the Jane Doe. The other body was identified as 16-year old Laura Miller, who had vanished on September 1, 1984, from the same convenience store where Heidi had vanished from. Five years after the second and third bodies were found, a fourth body was located. On September 8, 1991, the body of "Janet Doe", an unidentified woman, was discovered in Calder Field, just one hundred yards from where the other victims were located. The young woman had died one to four months before she was found, was about 31 years old, was 5' to 5'3", 100 to 130 pounds, had long brown hair, low quality dentures, and was beaten with a club and possibly strangled with a cord. Although many investigators believe that the cases are connected, there are some differences in the death. While Fye and Janet Doe were beaten to death, Miller and Jane Doe were shot to death. However, there are obviously more similarities than differences; Fye and Miller were last seen at the same store, all four bodies were found within less than one hundred yards of each other, and the bodies were arranged in the same way. Eventually, a fifth body was located at the site. However, the murders remain unsolved.
Suspects: Robert Abel, the owner of Calder Field, was considered a suspect, along with an employee of his, Mark Stallings. However, nobody has ever been charged.
Extra Notes: The case has appeared on the show Haunting Evidence.
Results: Unresolved. In March 2014, Clyde Edwin Hedrick, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the 1984 beating death of Ellen Rae Beason. Hedrick has since been linked to the murders of Fye, Miller and the three unidentified women. Prosecutors had planned to present evidence of Hedrick linking him to the murders of Fye and Miller, but the link was never made. Miller's father had long suspected Hedrick murdered his daughter.
