Phillip Fraser

When I use to watch Unsolved Mysteries as a kid this story really got to me. They have never solved it and the only updated from the original story is that they found his body and burnt out car. The question is “WHO killed Phillip Fraser”.
  On June 14th, 1988 25 year old Phillip Innes Fraser(Born Jan 3, 1965) was heading from his home in Anchorage, Alaska down to college in Seattle, Washington. Which to begin with is a long drive.
  When he went throw the border from Alaska to the Yukon he had to drop off hand guns. Due to the fact they are illegal in Canada. Sort of irrelevant to the case but maybe if he had them on his person he would still be alive today.
   600 miles from the border at a cafe a hitchhiker was dropped off. When this man was in the cafe there the owners though something was fucked up with him right from the get go. Even as far as saying they thought that he escaped from a mental institution.

Shortly after the nut bag arrived Phillip Fraser came up and got some gas. The nut bag went out and asked Phillip for a ride. Phillip said no. I have been up there numerous times. And if someone is too fucked up to give a ride to and help out. They have something wrong with them.
  When Phillip took off the nut bag chased the car. Phillip finally decided to give him a ride. Which turned out to be the last time he was seen alive.
   200 miles south of the cafe and 8 hours later a man flagged down a ride. The Olsen’s from Kitwanga, BC. The Olsen’s were told by the man that he was having car trouble.They also felt that he was acting very nervous. But at the time they chalked that up to him maybe being scared as he was alone out in the middle of no where. The Olsen’s went as far as to let the man stay at their house in the basement. With all their guns to boot.  The man told the Olsen’s that his name was Phillip Fraser and he was heading down to Washington to study medicine.
  The man tried to sell the car to the Olsen’s for a plane ticket. When the Olsen’s said they couldn’t do it for a few days. But he couldn’t wait that long. The man also pulled out 2 wallets which made the Olsen’s a tad suspicious of him. The man then took off.
  12 hours later Phillip’s burnt out car was found in Prince George, BC at a car wash. 6 weeks later they found Phillip’s body in a gravel turn around. He had been shot to death.

This case has never been solved and the hitchhiker is the primary suspect. Problem is no one knows who he is. In 1988 they figure the man was about 25 years old. He was described as having rotten teeth, a beer belly, and strong body odor. The Olsen’s said that he seemed to be familiar with the Toronto and Seattle areas.
   Sadly not solved and the odds of it getting slimmer by the day. Phillip’s father died in 2014 Serial killer Michael McGray may be responsible as he killed numerous Canadian hitchhikers and resembles the suspect sketch.

Sharon Kinne

She was one of the most remarkable criminals in U.S. history. A housewife, she turned cold-blooded killer. In 1969 she escaped from a Mexican prison and disappeared without a trace.

Sharon Elizabeth Hall (Born- November 30th, 1939) is an alleged American multiple murderer. She has the longest current outstanding arrest warrant in Kansas City, Missouri and one of the longest outstanding felony warrants in American history.

Sharon Elizabeth Hall was born on November 30th, 1939 in Independence, Missouri. The daughter of an alcoholic single mother. When she was 16 she met 22 year old James Kinne at a church function and began casually dating in the summer of 1956. But James broke it off when he returned to Brigham Young University in the Fall. Kinne who did not want to be alone and wanting a partner who could get her out of Independence, Missouri wrote to James claiming she was pregnant by him. James dropped out of school and returned to Independence to marry Sharon in October of 1956. They claimed on the marriage certificate that Sharon was 19 and a widow, whose husband died in a car crash. Kinne converted to Mormonism and the pair got married at the Salt Lake Temple in Utah.

After the wedding the couple settled in Provo, Utah. James returned to studies at BYU and worked as an electrical engineer and Sharon babysat. Sharon claimed to have miscarried the first child (the false pregnancy one to lure James back) but was pregnant again and in the fall of 1957 gave birth to a daughter they named Danna. Sharon was a lavish spender and the two had a second child Troy and by this time Sharon was having an extra marital affair with a high school friend and now ice cream vendor John Boldizs.

By the start of 1960 James was strongly thinking about divorce. Not only because of Sharon’s spending habits, but he really suspected she was having an affair. Boldizs later claimed to police that Sharon offered him $1,000 to kill James of find someone that could. James told his parents he wanted a divorce and Sharon would give him one if he gave her the house, the kids, and $1,000. James parents devout Mormons were strongly against the idea of divorce.

On March 19th, 1960 20 year old Sharon phoned the police. Sharon’s 25 year old husband James Kinne was found dead shot in the head. With the couples small 2 year old playing right near his dead body with a gun in her hand. Sharon told police that she heard a gun shot at around 5:30pm where he was sleeping. Sharon along with neighbors claimed that James would let the 2 year old play with his guns often. So she must of accidently shot her dad. At first police could not disproved her story. So with the death of James being closed and called an accidental homicide. James was buried and Sharon collected the $29,000 in life insurance. She did not appear to be grieving in any way shape or form with her manor around others. With some of the money she went and bought a fancy blue thunderbird sports car off a car salesman and future lover Walter T Jones. “She wanted the salesman to leave his wife and his children and take care of her. She wanted him. In her mind, whatever Sharon wanted, Sharon got.” says an author of a book about her.

But a few months later on May 27th the body of 23 year old Patricia Jones (a local file clerk) was found in the woods by Kinne and her new boyfriend John Boldzis, while they were parked in a place called lovers lane. It turns out that Patricia was the wife of another one of Kinne’s boyfriends Walter T. Jones a car salesman who wooed Kinne. Walter had tried to break off the affair with Kinne right before his wife went missing. Kinne admitted she was the last person to talk to Patricia before she went missing. She was then charged with Patricia’s murder and then with further investigation that of her husband James.

Kinne went to trial for Patricia Jones murder in June of 1961. She was acquitted. In January of 1962 she went on trial for James Kinne’s murder. After going on trial 3 times for James murder (the last one ending in a hung jury) she was released on bond. She fled to Mexico in October of 1964 before a fourth trial could be scheduled. She went down there with her new lover Francis Peglise. The two checked into a the Hotel Gin. While there Kinne said she felt un safe in a foreign country and bought a gun there, along with ones they brought from the states. Then when she got to Mexico she killed a man named Francisco Ordonez. Sharon killed him in a hotel room where she went to look at pictures he had. She then claimed he made sexual advances at her. She claimed that it was in self defence. Shot in the back in self defence. Investigation into that shooting showed that the same gun that killed Patricia Jones killed Ordonez. She was convicted in Mexico of shooting Ordonez in October 1965. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Kinne escaped from the Ixtapalapan Prison during a black out in December of 1969. Dispite extensive manhunts she has not been seen to this day.

Age Progression Of Sharon Kinne

It is rumored she may have snuck into Guatemala, was killed right after prison, or is still alive somewhere at 81 years old. Maybe even up in Alaska where she has relatives.

The case was aired on Unsolved Mysteries in 1998

Sharon Kinne Arrested At Her Home

1990 California Jane Doe

On April 1, 1990, a young woman was struck by a Mazda MX-6 and a Lincoln Continental and killed in Huntington Beach, California. She carried no identification. In her possessions were a hotel key and a ring made of human hair. Several people stated they saw her the day before she died. She told them that her name was Andrea and that she had come from the East Coast (Virginia or New York) to California in search for her biological parents. She said that she was the biological daughter of a well-known couple, but never said who they were. She also claimed that she was twenty-five or twenty six, but she appeared as young as sixteen. The day before she died, a man who felt sorry decided to give her money to buy new clothes and shoes. She was killed wearing the same pink shoes she had bought hours before.
Jane Doe is still nameless and any help to identifying her is welcome.
 The case was aired on the television series Unsolved Mysteries in 1995.

In May 2017, “Andrea” Doe was identified as Andrea Lee Kuiper, who was twenty-six when she died. She was identified after her fingerprints were uploaded to AFIS, the national fingerprint database. Andrea was originally from Fairfax, Virginia, and had gone to California in 1989. According to her family, she suffered from manic depressive disorder and had experimented with drugs. Her parents had last had heard from her a few months before her death, when she told them she was safe. They had never filed a missing persons report, believing that she would one day come home. Now, the family is grateful to have closure. “We are thankful to know what happened to our daughter after all these years,” her father, Richard Kuiper, said, according to the sheriff’s department.

1987 Dana Point Jane Doe

On the morning of September 20, 1987, the body of a young woman was found below the cliffs in Dana Point, California. She had apparently fallen from the cliff the previous night.  A coroner, investigated the case and could not determine if the woman died accidentally, committed suicide, or was murdered.
A phone number on a map in the woman’s purse led to a local cab company. The night before Jane Doe’s body was found, it was determined that she had called a cab from Hampton Inn hotel in nearby Mission Viejo. When the cab arrived she stated that she wanted to go to Laguna Beach, which cost $20. As she only had $18 at the time, the driver agreed to take her as far as the money would allow. The taxi driver said she barely spoke and also mentioned that there was nothing unusual about her. Hours before her body was found she was let out at Scenic Drive and Cove Road in Dana Point, which was as far as her money could take her.

A few hours later, she was discovered dead at the bottom of the cliffs, by a walker, having apparently scaled a fence and jumped to her death. Stacked neatly in front of the fence were the belongings she had with her prior to her death. There were a pack of cigarettes, a soda can, a California road map that indicated she may have been a hitchhiker and a piece of paper with a phone number to a nearby hotel. Investigators also found a purse that had a woman’s name on it embossed in gold. It was eventually traced to a San Diego woman who had hers stolen approximately ten years prior. She was not familiar with the unidentified victim. She was 5’8” tall and weighed 127 pounds. She had light brown hair, brown eyes, and was wearing what appeared to be second-hand clothing, including a pair of men’s underwear. The woman was believed to have been between 18-24 years old. She also had several distinctive dental fillings. She probably wore braces when she was younger.

The case was officially ruled a suicide several years later. In 2015, high school friends of Holly Glynn began searching for her. They were unable to locate her through social media, so they contacted her family and discovered that she had not been heard from since September of 1987. Her friends soon learned of Dana Point Jane Doe and found that she looked very similar to Holly and matched her description. Holly’s family submitted DNA samples to be compared with the Jane Doe. In May 2015, it was announced that Holly has been identified as Dana Point Jane Doe. Holly was 21 when she died. Holly Jo Glynn was born September 11th, 1966.

Holly’s family had tried to involuntarily institutionalize her 8 months before she killed herself, but Holly wasn’t having any of that. She was described as quiet but also liked to party, do drugs, and flirt.

Although it was determined that Jane Doe was Holly Jo Glynn in 2015 there were people thinking that was her as far back as 2011.More than 20 years prior to her identification, Holly Jo Glynn’s remains had been cremated in a ceremony costing $425, paid for by Orange County on her behalf. Her ashes had then been placed in a cardboard box and buried at sea

William Bradford Bishop

In Bethesda, Maryland on March 10th, 1976 a neighbours of the Bishops notified police that they haven’t heard or seen the Bishop family in about 3 weeks. The neighbour who had a key to their home met with the officer. The officer went to enter the home and noticed blood drops on the front door. When the officer entered the home he seen blood all over the floor and walls of the home. The children’s rooms were covered with blood from ceiling to floor. It didn’t take police too long to figure out where the Bishop family was.

On March 2nd, 1976 a Forrest ranger just south of Columbia, North Carolina spotted a fire. After the fire was put out he found 5 bodies in there. Later they were determined to be the Bishops. Bishops wife Annette 37, his sons William Jr 14, Brenton 10, Geoffrey 5, and his mother Lobelia 68. Along with the bodies the ranger found a gas can, pitchfork, and a shovel. The shovel was later proven to be purchased by Bishop at a hardware store called Poch’s where he also purchased the pitchfork.

Police believe that the fact that Bishop didn’t get a promotion at work was a major factor into the murders. Also some people have said that he felt tied down with family life and wanted to life free many also said he preferred solitude.. Police believe he fled with the family dog after ditching the station wagon.

  On April 10th, 2014 Bishop became the 502nd fugitive to be placed on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list which is a little surprising it took that long as William Fisher was on there before him.

About William Bradford Bishop: Bishop was born August 1st, 1936 in Pasadena, California. He had a BS in history and American studies from Yale and a MA in International studies and Italian from Middlebury College. He also studied African Studies at UCLA. He spent four years in the army and is fluent in 5 languages English, French, Italian, Serbo-Croat, and Spanish.

  He then worked for the US State department and worked for the US foreign service department spending alot of time overseas.

  Bishop also suffered from depression and insomnia and took the drug Serax.

Lobelia Bishop

The Murders: Bishop told a secretary at work that he wasn’t feeling well and left work early. It is then believed that he drove to the bank and withdrew several hundred dollars. He then went to a Sears and bought a hammer and a gas can. He then went to a hardware store and bought a shovel and a pitchfork before returning home at about 7;30 pm.

  Police believe he killed his wife first and then his mother.He then went and killed his sons while they were asleep. Everyone was believed to have been killed with a blunt instrument probably the hammer. 

  Bishop then loaded the bodies into the family station wagon and drove 6 hours away near Columbia, North Carolina. When there he dug a shallow hole threw the bodies in there poured gasoline on them and then set them on fire.

  On March 18th the station wagon was found abandoned in Elkmont, Tennessee. Inside the car was dog biscuits, a bloody blanket, a shotgun, an axe, and a spare tire well in the trunk full of blood. A witness said the vehicle had been there since at least March 7th.

Whereabouts: If Bishop is even still alive he is almost certainly in Europe. Authorities strongly believe that he could be in Italy. He would be 77 years old today.

Sightings:

  • In 1979 an old co worker of Bishop’s claimed he spotted Bishop in a bathroom in Sorento, Italy
  • In 1978 a Swedish woman who knew Bishop from working with him in Ethiopia claimed that she spotted him twice in Stockholm.
  • In 1994 neighbours of Bishops claimed that they spotted him on a train platform in Basel, Switzerland.

Other Notables:

  • On the day of the murders Bishop was spotted buying tennis shoes at a store in Jacksonville, North Carolina with his dog and a dark skin woman. But there is no solid proof of this.
  • In 2011, WUSA aired a story there were reports he died in Hong Kong and then in France, but police used fingerprints to confirm those reports were false.
  • On October 9, 2014, the body of an unidentified man who resembled Bishop and was killed in a hit-and-run walking along an Alabama highway in 1981 was exhumed by the FBI in Scotsboro to have its DNA, teeth and fingerprints compared to Bishop’s. The DNA test indicated it was not Bishop’s body
  • Investigators discovered Bishops diary where he wrote about wanting to become free and self-sufficient.
