A Sonoma County Sheriff’s helicopter drops off investigators at a remote beach north of Jenner, Calif., on Aug. 19, 2004, after the discovery of two bodies. Lindsay Cutshall, 23, of Ohio, and Jason Allen, 26, of Michigan, had each been shot once in the head with a .45-caliber Marlin rifle. The circumstances -- an unwed couple shot in their heads while sleeping on an isolated beach -- were similar to those of the Radar Beach slayings 32 years earlier. Both cases remain unsolved. (Christopher Chung / Santa Rosa Press Democrat)
