Missing Since: 1984
Details: Between 1982 and 1984, forty-eight young women, most of them prostitutes, were found murdered and dumped near the Green River near Seattle. All of them had been strangled and dumped in remote areas as the police followed numerous leads. One suspect was William J. Stevens, a petty thief, who had casually walked away from a minimum security facility in while doing time for burglary. Often found in possession of guns, police badges and porn, Stevens owned one house in Portland where he kept a secret room. His own half-brother, Robert Stevens, believed William was committing the murders while using his parents' vacation as an alibi. He was finally recaptured in 1989.
Extra Notes: This segment originally ran on the February 16, 1996 episode. It was also featured on the series Deranged.
Results: Solved. The Green River Killer was finally identified as Gary Leon Ridgeway, who eventually confessed to murdering over 48 women. William Stevens is no longer a suspect, but his brother still thinks he's connected to the case.
