Siskiyou County Authorities Seek Leads On Several Cold Cases

Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey says he knows there are people in the county with information about a 15-year-old missing person’s case that’s never been solved. It’s hoped that a new $2500 Secret Witness reward might help jar that information loose. Angela Fullmer, a 34-year-old mother who lived in the southern part of the county, vanished on December 15th of 2002. She had apparently been seen with an ex-boyfriend near Lake Siskiyou, and was reported missing about 12 hours later. She’s presumed dead. Sheriff Lopey says some promising leads have been developed by the major crimes unit and it’s hoped the case can be resolved. The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office is also still pursuing at least 3 other cold case murders or disappearances of women. The 1997 disappearance of then-15-year-old Hannah Zaccaglini has been very frustrating. Detectives say Hannah was murdered, even though no trace of her has ever been found. She left a friend’s house in McCloud on June 4th, 1997 and was walking to her home just one block away, but never arrived. Witnesses pointed to Ed Henline Senior, who was arrested in 2012 and charged with murder. His son, Ed Henline Junior, was arrested for conspiracy. Both were eventually released for lack of evidence. Ed Henline Senior was also a person of interest in the 1997 disappearance of another McCloud resident, 27-year-old Karin Knechtel Mero. Another unsolved murder is that of Patricia Joseph, whose body was found in the Klamath River in July of 2005. She died of blunt force trauma and asphyxia. Siskiyou County detectives continue to seek tips from the public in all four of the cases, and none of them will be closed until they’re resolved. Detectives can be reached at 841-2900.
