In the afternoon of September 7, 1986, 18-year-old Caroline Garcia left her home in Roseville, California. She took a bus to visit her estranged husband Trinidad “Trino” Garcia. Later, that night she met up with Trino at a park. While there, she mentioned to him that she planned on going to the house of a mutual friend, Chris Paoli.
When she got to Chris’s house, Caroline told Chris a strange story. Earlier a drunken man harassed her at the bus stop. Luckily for her, her friend David Allen Rundle intervened. He chased the drunk man away and offered Caroline a ride home from Chris’s house. She never made it home.
Approximately one month after Caroline failed to return home, 15-year-old Lanciann Sorensen disappeared. She and her friend Laura went to a friend’s house to drink some beer. Later, the two teens went to Laura’s sister’s house. Unfortunately, Lanciann decided to leave alone and walk in the dark. She told Laura she planned on hitchhiking home. Like Caroline, she never made it.
Caroline and Lanciann weren’t the only victims of David Rundle. Listen to this podcast episode to find out more about this serial killer.
