The New Melones Murders

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/the_new_melones_murders_20020329

The New Melones Lake, a reservoir near the city of Modesto, is in a quiet, rural area in central California. The reservoir resembles a river more than a lake as it winds its way among the hills of Calaveras and Tuolumne counties. The reservoir is a popular fishing area, but in the middle of March its catch of the day wasn't fish: It was four decomposed bodies of immigrants from the former Soviet Union who were kidnapped from the Los Angeles area.
