Andrea “Fish” Altiery was twenty-four years old when she was last seen on December 2, 1981 while en route to a late night photo shoot with an unidentified male at Anchorage, Alaska’s Boniface Mall.
While no body has ever been located, the prevailing theory is that Andrea was murdered by serial killer Robert Hansen. Hansen, dubbed “The Butcher Baker” was sentenced in 1984 for taking the lives of seventeen women, the majority of whom were prostitutes or dancers. The exact number of women that he raped and/or murdered is unknown.
Andrea, who danced under the stage name “Enchantment,” would have been directly in Hansen’s line of fire at the height of his spree. Among the other trophies Hansen collected from his victims was Andrea’s custom-made fish necklace.
The last reported sighting of Kelly (Keli) Kay McGinnis was on June 28, 1983 around 7:30 p.m. in the vicinity of the Three Bears Motel in Des Moines, Washington. While Kelly’s remains have never been recovered, serial killer Gary Ridgway (of the Green River murders) claimed responsibility for viciously snuffing out her brief life.
There is a frustratingly limited amount of information about not only Linda Louise Jackson’s disappearance, but about her life in general. This is not necessarily unique, especially considering that when she was reportedly last seen in 1983 information wasn’t as easily shared as it is today.
One of the saddest details about Linda was that no one seemed to notice that she was missing until years later when the police wanted to question her as a possible witness in the investigation of Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer.
