when Leah was finally dead, biker and Norris through the girl's bodies over the embankment. Mhm, the final known victim of bit thicker. And Norris was 16 year old Lynette Ledford, abducted on her way home from a Halloween party on October 31st 1979. I introduced Lynette at the top of the episode and mentioned that, as one of did occur and Norris's victims, Lynette was unique in some ways. Mm hmm. Unlike with the other girls, the killers didn't follow their blueprint with Lynette Ledford. They didn't take her up into the mountains, and they didn't dispose of her body in the canyon. Instead, they drove to a somewhat secluded wooded area to rape, torture and murder Lynette before throwing her body into someone's front yard to gauge the reaction of the media. When Lynette Ledford's body was found, Hermosa Beach Detective Paul Bynum knew that he was dealing with an incredibly sick and twisted individual. But in 1978 with no witnesses, it wasn't easy to solve a seemingly random murder. There simply wasn't any evidence toe work with. Fortunately for Bynum, the stupidity and narcissism of Roy Norris would provide all the evidence police would need. Not long after the murder of Lynette Ledford, Roy Norris began hanging out with his friend Jimmy Dalton, who had been recently released from prison. On several occasions when the men were out drinking, Norris would brag to Jimmy about the rapes and murders he was committing. At first, Jimmy figured that Norris was just trying to impress him by acting hard and making himself seemed powerful and important. But after Lynette Ledford's body was found and the details of her injuries were reported in the media, Dalton realized that one of Norris's stories perfectly matched the crime. Ah, father to two young girls of his own. Jimmy Dalton called his lawyer, and together the two headed down to the police station, where Dalton told the police everything he knew. Dalton was sent over to Hermosa Beach to speak to Paul Bynum, the detective in charge of Lynette's case. Bynum was hesitant to trust the word of an ex con without any corroborating evidence, until Dalton mentioned the color of the van bit occur and Norris had been using to commit their crimes. When Bynum heard the bit thicker and Norris were driving a silver van, he instantly recalled a statement made by a rape victim on Lee a few weeks earlier, less than one month before the murder of Lynette Ledford bit thicker and Norris had tried to abduct another young girl, Shirley Sanders. Shirley was in town from Oregon, visiting her father in Manhattan Beach as she was walking home from the beach one evening bit thicker, and Norris had tried to pick her up. She declined their offer to give her a ride, so they blinded her with pepper spray and dragged her into the van. Both men raped surely repeatedly. But somehow, in a rare moment when the men must have let down, their guard surely miraculously escaped from the van. She filed a police report about her abduction and rape, noting that the men drove a silver van. When Jimmy Dalton told Paul Bynum that did occur, and Norris had been attacking women in a silver van, Bynum made the connection. Bynum sent an officer to Oregon to interview Surely again
