Will the unsolved case of the Keddie Cabin murders ever be closed? – Daily Movie

It is true that long-standing cold cases can regain heat even after several decades. The Keddie murders have been described as a suddenly heated cold affair. It has been forty years since the Kebbie Cabin murders happened in rural Plumas County. Surely no one expected this to be one of the most famous unsolved murder cases in history.

This case concerns a triple homicide and a missing child whose remains were later found. But the matter remains cold today. According to the Plumas County Sheriff, “This thing was planned to a certain extent.”

On one side of State Route 70, on Quincy Road, a rickety wooden building with boarded up windows. It was named “Keddie Resort”. People who drive there see it as a marker in the community. The Horror They Know took place at the Keddie Resort in Cabin 28 on April 11, 1981.

Fourteen-year-old Sheila Sharp was spending the night next door with a friend for a slumber party. She stopped by her home to change clothes for the church when she found three bodies inside, just covered in blood. She reunited with her mother, Glenna “Sue” Sharp, her brother, John Sharp, and her brother’s friend, Dana Wingate.

Interestingly, Sheila discovered that her other siblings, Ricki, Greg, and their friend Justin Smartt, were unharmed in a spare bedroom. A hammer and a knife are believed to be the murder weapons, having been found at the scene. Later, investigators discovered that someone was missing at the house. It was Sheila’s 12-year-old sister, Tina Sharp. She would have been kidnapped.

Frightened community

Tina was presumed missing. His remains were found three years later, 120 kilometers away, in Butte County. In the early 1980s, Quincy was no different from just about any small town. It was the kind of place where people felt comfortable, whether they were inside or outside. People weren’t closing their doors. Families felt safe. The kids playing outside probably didn’t hear “stay where I can see you”.

Suddenly everything changed. “People were closing their doors like never before,” the investigators explain.

It is common knowledge that our parents and grandparents did not grow up exercising against the dangers of a stranger at school and hearing “stay where I can see you!” At one time, parents didn’t always know where their children were until they came home for dinner. It’s practically unheard of these days. You will probably be arrested by the authorities for not knowing where your child is playing.

At some point, we become curious. The world today is better than it was in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Parents are certainly much more careful with their children today, but why? An unsolved murder will change everyone’s mind. Perhaps it was cases like the Keddie Cabin murders that changed the way people were raising their children.


“You kill three people in a cabin and leave the remains to be discovered. I think Tina was absolutely central to why this happened. I think there was something about Tina that couldn’t be left there to be discovered. It’s my strong feeling that there is something about Tina that didn’t allow her to stay there, ”said former County Sheriff Greg Hagwood.

It’s not uncommon for victims to know their killers, but was that the case with this particular unsolved murder? Investigators say they are getting closer to resolving the case. “We found evidence that was never presented by officers and the Department of Justice,” Detective Gamberg said, frustrated by the start of the investigation into the case.
