Overview of Diane Shields
On May 19, 1967, Diane Shields left work around 5:00 pm in her blue and white Chevy Impala. She never made it home.
Diane worked as a secretary at Citizens and Southern Bank in East Point, GA. East Point Police spotted her car at 2:30am near the drive-in window of a laundry on Sylvan road. Blood was dripping from the rear end. Finding the keys in the ignition, they opened the trunk to discover Diane’s body crammed upside down between a spare tire and a cardboard box. Among other things, the box contained a copy of “Betty Crocker’s New Dinner for Two”; she was engaged and planned to marry in July. Diane was fully clothed and had not been sexually assaulted nor had she been robbed; she was still wearing a diamond engagement ring. A scarf and a piece of paper had been stuffed down her throat, as if to silence her.
