Larry Peyton and Beverly Allan

On the evening of November 27th 1960, police officers were on their usual patrol of the West Hills, near Portland, Oregon, when they came across a car stopped in a clearing. 500 yards from the nearest road, the car was not immediately visible to the officers. Nor was the lifeless body of Larry Peyton, a 19 year old Portland native, who was lying dead in his vehicle, after being stabbed multiple times. As well as evidence of a struggle, there was evidence of another person, a woman, whose purse and coat were still in the car, yet she was nowhere to be seen.
