The Yavapai County Silent Witness program is asking the public’s help in identifying a murderer.
Best friends, Diana Lynn Shawcroft and Jennifer Sue Lueth, were last seen on May 24, 1996, at a convenience store near 59th Avenue and Camelback Road, in Glendale, Arizona. The cashier at the store stated he witnessed the girls talking to a man in a late 70’s to early 80’s blue pickup truck outside the store.
Three months later, hunters located the remains of the two 19-year-old girls on a steep incline in an isolated area of the desert off Dugas Road approximately 20 miles east of interstate 17. After the discovery of their remains, two pictures of the victims in frames were placed at the site. In September of 2000, investigators discovered the photographs had been removed.
Investigators are asking the public for any information they might have on the girls’ disappearance and deaths. If you have information related to this case, call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip at www.yavapaisw.com. All tips are anonymous.
