The victims were Glenna Sharp, known as Sue (aged 36), her daughter Tina (aged 12), her son John (aged 15), and his friend Dana Wingate (aged 17).Tina, the final victim, was missing when the crime was first discovered. Part of her skull was recovered in 1984 in Feather Falls, in Butte County. Sue’s oldest daughter, Sheila, had stayed with next-door neighbors in cabin 27 that night and discovered the murders the morning of April 12.Sue’s two youngest sons and their friend, who were having a sleep-over at cabin 28 that night, were found, uninjured, in the boys’ bedroom that morning.
No arrests have been made in connection with the Keddie murders. The cabin in which the murders took place was demolished in 2004.
Locals say they’ve heard moans and the sound of slamming doors from the abandoned building and seen shadowy figures. Mollath’s stepdaughter recounts once seeing the word “no” scrawled on the house’s door, with a pitchfork propped beside it—the next day, both the writing and the tool were gone.
