Theresa was last seen wearing…

These photos are NOT the actual clothes Theresa was wearing November 3, 1978–the night she was killed. Rather, they are a collection of similar clothes from the 1970s that approximate what she COULD have been wearing based on some of John Allore’s blog entries:
“There are several witness testimonies of her walking around the day she disappeared in blue cords, Chinese slippers, a beige sweater-coat, and a t-shirt (some say a David Bowie t-shirt, but I doubt this since I was just at my parents home and found both her David Bowie shirts in pristine condition in her drawer). She was found in her underwear. Her watch was on. The wallet, as you know, was found 10k away, her scarf was found in two pieces in the cornfield adjacent to where her body was. I believe she was wearing a gold chain around her neck and that was missing. So what has never been found? The clothing, the chain, and possibly her books, possible a book bag or purse she might have been carrying.” (John Allore entry: March 8, 2006)
I’m hoping that maybe these photos will spark someone’s memory. If you’ve seen these items in the Compton area around 1978-79, please e-mail or As always, your information will be treated with the utmost discretion.
