Cold Case: Chloroform Murders

It was a mystery that seemed to fit a movie plot. Diana Smith and Scott Jones were found murdered in Scott’s St. Paul apartment in March 1981. Her dad had reported her missing when she failed to meet him for church services and called police. Police thought the crime scene seemed staged because of the way the bodies of the victims were positioned.
