Just When You Thought It Was Safe

Stephen King doesn’t just write scary novels he has also produced children with a keen eye for a good mystery. Joe Hill (aka Stephen King’s son) believes he may have solved a 1974 murder mystery by watching the movie Jaws. Apparently a woman who appears as an extra in a crowd scene looks very similar to an unidentified murder victim known as ‘Lady of the Dunes’.

The body of a woman who has never been identified was found badly decomposing (missing her hands) in Massachusetts in 1974. She was also found near where the Steven Spielberg movie was shot a few months earlier. A computer-generated image of what the ‘Lady of the Dunes’ would have looked like is very similar to the woman in the crowd scene. What ya think?

  1. I don’t know. Has anyone tried to identify or contact the extra?
