On Tuesday, a Coca-Cola can led to the arrest of a man who police believe may have raped and murdered a teenager in 1989. Timothy Bass, 50, of Everson, Washington, appeared in court on Wednesday after being arrested for first-degree murder, kidnapping and rape charges. CBS News repored that his bail has been set at $1 million, and it is unclear if he has an attorney at this time.
Almost 30 years ago, Mandy Stavik, 18, went missing after taking a jog with her German shepherd the day after Thanksgiving. She was a freshman at Central Washington University and was home on break visiting family when she vanished. The dog returned home without Stavik, which alerted her family and prompted a search for the teen. Three days later, her body was found in a nearby river.
As if the case wasn’t tragic enough, police think Stavik may have still been alive
