Lucinda Lynn Schaefer was abducted from Torrance, California. This incident occurred on June 24, 1979. She was last seen walking back to her grandmother’s house. She was leaving a Christian youth meeting at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. The youth group meeting was held in Torrance.

Lucinda was missed and people searched for her. At the time, they only found one of her shoes alongside the road. She left $220 behind in her savings account and has never been heard from again.

Later in 1979, Lawrence Sigmund Bittaker and Roy Lewis Norris were arrested. And they eventually convicted of murdering Lucinda and several other young women, including Andrea Hall.

Norris and Bittaker had driven around California in their silver 1977 GMC cargo van. They nicknamed it “Murder Mac.” And they abducted, raped and killed a large number of women. They admitted to kidnapping and raping Lucinda and to dumping her body in a remote gorge. However, each man blamed the other one for strangling her. She was their first known victim.

Norris testified against Bittaker in exchange for a life sentence; Bittaker was sentenced to death. He is awaiting execution.

Lucinda and Hall’s remains have never been found.
