Siskiyou Sheriff’s Office Seeks Leads In Several Cold Cases

The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office has a haunting collection of cold missing persons cases that are revisited from time to time because it’s believed that somebody in the county has key information that hasn’t been shared. A $2500 Secret Witness reward may be doubled for a tip about a woman who disappeared 16 years ago. Angela Gullmer, a 34-year-old mother who lived in the southern part of the county, vanished on December 15th of 2002. She had been seen with an ex-boyfriend near Lake Siskiyou, and was reported missing about 12 hours later. She’s presumed dead. The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office is also still pursuing at least 3 other cold case murders or disappearances of women. The disappearance of 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.
