The Murder of Janet Stallcup
Janet Stallcup was just 19 years old when her life was cut short by a man whose short criminal history points to at least one more victim and possibly many more had he not died in 1977. Stallcup was a hard worker who cared about her family and others. She wanted to be a nurse and work with children.
