Janie Landers and Gerald Dunlap

SALEM, Oregon — Oregon State Police say a cold case dating back to the 1970s has been solved. It was in 1979 when investigators say Janie Landers was stabbed to death and her body dumped near Silver Falls State Park.

For years it went unsolved, until now.

Detectives said it was a small amount of blood found on Landers’ shirt that linked her death to a man already serving time in an Oregon prison.

“You are happy that you got this news,” Landers’ sister Joyce Hooper said. “You are sad because it doesn’t, it’s not going to bring her back.”

OSP Detective Steve Hinkle was assigned the case in 2015. He said the agency looked over the case and digitized every aspect of it. They also

Region Cold Case Files: Who killed Paul Chamness? The 44-year-old truck driver was murdered in broad daylight in …

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.

Killer who claims he murdered 11 girls may have lied: documentary

Eleven girls died.

Some alone, others in pairs.

Decades have passed without answers – their murders are in cold case files in police departments in Galveston, Brazoria and Harris counties in Texas.

Enter Edward Harold Bell, a convicted killer serving a 70-year prison term for a murder of a Marine who tried to stop him when he exposed himself to a group of young girls. Bell, who is up for parole this fall, claims to have killed the girls – who were killed in the 1970’s in different areas of Texas — referring to them in an interview with the Houston Chronicle in 2011 as the “11 that went to heaven.”

Now, an AE series will re-examine the case. The series will include interviews with Chronicle reporter Lisa Olsen, who broke the story, as well as the police detective, Fred Paige, now retired, who worked on the case.

In a description of the series,

JFK’s Mistress Who Was Murdered: Some Say Mary Pinchot Meyer …

 

She met John F. Kennedy at a prep school dance and in the early 1960s, began an affair with the president that lasted until the time of his assassination. One year later, on Oct. 12, 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer was shot dead while taking an afternoon walk on a Georgetown towpath in Washington, D.C., at age 43.

Nearly fifty three years later, her murder remains unsolved. Was it a random act of violence or did someone want her dead?

“She was shot in the head,” says author Nina Burleigh, who wrote about artist and socialite Pinchot Meyer in the 1999 biography A Very Private Woman. “Passersby heard screams and a witness looked over the wall and saw a man standing near her body. The police came and shortly arrested a black male [Ray Crump Jr.] soaking wet who said
