Murders of Neighbors, Francine Trimble and Kerry Graham
Residents of Forestville, Calif., Kerry Ann Graham, 15, and Francine Marie Trimble, 14, were next-door neighbors and inseparable as children.
In December 1978, the two girls left their homes to go to Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa, telling their families they were going to buy Christmas gifts. They were never seen alive again.
According to family members, Trimble's mother made a missing child report to
Sonoma County Sheriff's Office in mid-December 1978, though the exact date was not known. Graham was reportedly reported missing on Christmas Eve that year. The dates of disappearance would be a discrepancy that would haunt the investigation for years to come.
