Suspect in Stavik murder case watched cold case files, bragged he wouldn’t be caught

Timothy Forrest Bass, 50, of Everson was arrested Tuesday morning by the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office in connection with the 1989 abduction and murder of 18-year-old Amanda T. “Mandy” Stavik of Acme.

Stavik went missing Nov. 24, 1989, while jogging near her home on Strand Road in Clipper, a community clustered along Highway 9 between Acme and Van Zandt. Stavik was home for Thanksgiving break from her freshman year at Central Washington University. She was last seen at about 2:30 p.m. that day, with her dog, Kyra.

Stavik’s unclothed body was found three days later in the south fork of the Nooksack River, about 3 ½ miles south of the family’s home.

Sheriff Bill Elfo said new DNA evidence led detectives to the arrest. Bass was booked on suspicion of first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping and first-degree rape, Elfo said.

Region Cold Case Files: Who killed Linda Weldy? The LaPorte 10-year-old was kidnapped and killed after the school …

Region Cold Case Files: Who killed Daniel Shively? Dyer police say they’re looking for a Scion.

DYER — Serious crimes are few and far between in Dyer, a town of nearly 16,000 people that ranked in the state’s top 10 safest cities in 2016. 

But there’s one cold case Dyer police detectives can’t seem to shake.

Daniel Shively, 24, was struck and killed in the middle of the night June 3, 2012, and the driver didn’t bother to stick around to see if he lived. 

Shively had a family. He had kids. He was one of Dyer’s own. 

“As time goes on, we know it will be harder and harder to solve. But someone out there knows something,” Dyer Police Chief David Hein said. “This case stays in the back of our heads. Our detectives are constantly working.”

Though the case remains unsolved, it’s not necessarily for a lack of physical evidence.

Cold Case Files: The mysterious death of a Lackawanna woman ‘who wouldn’t hurt a fly’

Once or twice each month, the emotions that burn deep inside Brian Burke compel him to drive to Holy Cross Cemetery in Lackawanna, where he visits the grave of his younger sister, Sheila.

He can’t stop thinking about the shy, gentle woman who disappeared and died under mysterious circumstances during winter 1989.

“Sometimes I think about the life she might have if she was still around today – happy, maybe with a couple of kids,” said Burke, 57. “I think about what a beautiful, gentle, trusting person she was. One of those people who wouldn’t know how to hurt a fly. … I think about the old days, when we were a big, happy family.”

The death of Sheila A. Burke didn’t draw much public attention when she disappeared and died more than 28 years ago. There were a couple of short stories in The Buffalo News and at least one on TV
