Cabin 28: The Keddie Murders Part II (2010)

Josh Hancock

Runtime: 105 min

"On the morning of April 12th, 1981, fourteen year old Sheila Sharp stepped into Cabin 28, her home in the remote town of Keddie, California, to discover a horrific sight. Bound on the floor with wire and tape were her mother, Glenna "Sue" Sharp; her brother, fifteen year old John Sharp; and John's friend, seventeen year old Dana Wingate. The victims had been knifed, claw-hammered and strangled to death--a scene that one police officer described as a "homicidal frenzy of violence."

Inside Cabin 28, blood stained the floors and spattered and smeared the walls, and police officers even found stab marks in the walls. The victims, particularly Sue Sharp, had been viciously attacked, beaten, bludgeoned, stabbed, and asphixiated. To this day, despite countless tips and potential suspects, the murders remain unsolved. It is one of Northern California's most notorious cold cases and has been inactive for over two decades, leaving family members and an entire community bewildered and angry.

But the tide is turning for this famous unsolved crime. Due to the efforts of a team of filmmakers and a loyal online community, there is distinct cause for hope that the Keddie Murders will finally be solved. Two documentaries (listed below) delve deep inside this case like nothing before, pinpointing suspects and possibly even proving their involvement in the homicides."

"Cabin 28: The Keddie Murders Part II, released October 1, 2010, provides a fuller exploration of these unsolved murders than its predecessor. Interspersing new interviews with archival footage, police reports, and crime scene photos, this documentary leaves no stone unturned. You'll hear excerpts from interviews with all the key players, including the major suspects; listen as an investigating officer walks you through the crime scene; and marvel at a community determined to see justice served. The documentary's startling conclusion uncovers what law enforcement agencies and the families of Sue, Johnny, Dana and Tina have been waiting to hear for almost thirty years: a confession to these horrendous crimes."
