In two articles printed in early May 1979 in the French tabloid newspaper, Allo Police it is suggested that Theresa Allore may have been strangled to death.
Out of all the theories that may explain her death, the hypothesis of a “maniaque sexuel” is the most plausible. The paper points to the fact that Theresa’s clothing has never been found.
The paper also mentions that just two days after her disappearance, some hunters found women’s clothing in a wood near the village of Austin, and that these clothes matched the description of those worn by Theresa Allore.
Because the newspaper included graphic photos of Theresa Allore’s body and the crime scene, Mr. Allore is never shown a copy of these articles.
