Bordered by the ocean on one side and the desert on the other, Oregon is known for its natural beauty. But between the ocean and the desert lie many true crime stories, some of which remain unsolved. Among the stories in this book are a murderer who cut up his victims, spreading their body parts across Portland; the murder of one of our nation’s most decorated war heroes; a con artist whose crimes spanned five decades; Oregon’s most prolific serial killer; bank robbers who crossed two continents trying to outrun the law; a man who told detectives the fact that both of his wives disappeared and were never found was merely a coincidence; and how the use of DNA solved a forty-year-old cold case.
