Was it a mob hit? A robbery? The mystery, 50 years old today, is far from forgotten


On July 21, 1952, a trail crew discovered the bodies of two General Motors executives murdered in the woods of Crater Lake National Park.The men had been shot in the head execution style. Their mouths were gagged with their own neckties. Their shoes had been removed from their feet, and one pair had been stolen.

This is an intresting cold case. Always feel so sad for the families and friends that things like this remain unsolved, as it must be awful for them  sad.gif

From the article:

Both men’s dentures were in their front shirt pockets. The socks on their shoeless feet were clean. Their cash and watches were missing.


In addition to a single bullet wound each, they had bruised groin areas, and Jones’ skull was fractured.


I wonder what a killer would be thinking to remove dentures? And the bruised areas, a bit odd, wonder what that was about?  huh.gif

A shame there was not more detail about the 'confession' from Moore, to ascertain if it was feasible or just an attention-seeker in the wife.

Interesting, as it could of course have been linked to the workplace/union too. Lots of loose ends there, a fascinating thread- thanks MI  thumbsup.gif

This is the part that got me

"Last spring, Cheryl Ousey, 47, was taking a class at Rogue Community College when she heard about the Crater Lake murders. She spent three months obsessively investigating the crime for a research paper. Her extensive report is now part of the files at the Southern Oregon Historical Society.


"Culhane was a big mucky-muck with the company, and there were problems with the union then," Ousey said. "It was a hit."


She gave a presentation on the murders Thursday at the Klamath County Museum. About 40 seniors showed up. The last to walk in was a "suspicious-looking" man in a long-sleeved shirt, she said. Ousey’s friend noticed the man because of the way he studied the names in the guest book so intensely.


He was missing a finger. "

The bruises in the groin, that to me says who ever killed them was really peeved at them, was trying to show them that he was more macho than them. Same with the missing dentures, the stolen shoes, it seems to me it was like a final "up yours" to the victims.

Here's an old article from the time of the murders that I missed the night I posted this. Obviously nothing came of it or the 2002 story wouldnt have been published
