QUINCY, Calif. (AP) - Plumas County investigators say new technology and old evidence has helped them reopen a 1981 quadruple murder case.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/277hPjl ) that Sheriff Greg Hagwood says he has identified six people of interest in the 35-year-old murder of 36-year-old Glenna “Sue” Sharp, 15-year-old John Sharp, 12-year old Tina Sharp and 17-year-old Dana Wingate.

Wingate, Glenna and John Sharp were found in the room of a Keddie cabin in April 1981. They had been bound with electrical tape, stabbed and beaten. Tina Sharp’s skeletal remains were found in Plumas National Forest three years later. Three young boys had been in a back room of the cabin but slept through the killings.

Two suspects were questioned in 1981 but they were released and have since died. Hagwood says he believes there are living suspects who know about the murders.
