Construction workers digging near Eklutna Road outside Eklutna, Alaska, discovered the partial remains of a young woman in a shallow grave on July 21, 1980. Believed to have been a victim of serial killer Robert Hansen, her identity remains a mystery.
In the early 1980′s, Robert Hansen terrorized Alaska. He murdered between 17 and 21 women prostitutes he picked up specifically for the purpose of playing a twisted and deadly game. The Frozen Ground is a new film based on the hunt for Hansen, starring John Cusack as the killer, Nicholas Cage as the detective who took him down and Vanessa Hudgens as Cindy Paulson, a 17-year-old prostitute who narrowly escaped Hansen’s lethal grip.
Not all serial killers are willing to expose thier kills, but Robert Hansen, known for hunting down his victims in the wild like animals, told police where he had dumped several of his victims. On April 24, 1984, investigators discovered the remains of Sue Luna and Malai Larson, sealing their case against him.
