She Was The Very First Victim Of A Serial Killer, But She Has Gone Unnamed For Over 39 Years

She was young; between 16 and 25 years old. She had long, light brown hair that had something of a reddish tone to it. It could have been strawberry blonde.

She was small in stature; around 4 foot 11 to 5 foot 3. She was white, but she may have also had a bit of Native American to her roots.

After an autopsy was performed, it was ruled that Annie was the victim of a homicide and her cause of death was a stab wound to her back.

She had her whole life ahead of her, but it was all cut short by a serial killer.

Just 4 years after Annie was discovered, serial killer Robert Hansen revealed that he was responsible for Annie’s murder and that he had taken her life in that fall of 1979 or the early winter.

In fact, Annie was Robert’s very first victim. He then went on to murder at least 17 to 21 more women in Alaska.

Before his death in 2014 while he was still incarcerated, Robert mentioned that he did not know Annie’s real name, but he thought she was either a prostitute or a topless dancer at a nearby bar.
