I think you might be thinking of Julie Cross who was a secret service agenct at a time when there were very few, if any, female agents circa late 70s and early 80s. She was murdered in 1980.

If that's the case, I don't think there was a plea to find her specific gun. However, I do remember her friend (also an agent) being interviewed and saying that she kept Julie's badge and would occasionally wear it to honor her memory.

I'm dying to know some of the other "stunts" he pulled.
Oh wow. Recent post too. I'm still amazed some of you could tell he was gay from his photo though (and I'm gay). The show still elided mention of his sexuality. Had Matthew Chase been dating Teresa Dahl, the show would have mentioned it, e.g. "He was living in L.A. with his girlfriend Teresa Dahl and her brother Steven."

There were some horribly nasty sexist comments on the video of that segment when it was available online. Still pisses me off just thinking about it.

Had Julie and her academy friend been male officers, I highly doubt anyone would've batted an eye at the other keeping his buddy's badge to honor the other's memory.

Julie was a Secret Service agent, btw. Her friend was a sergeant in the San Diego PD, where they originally met.

I never assumed Matthew Chase was gay. Then again, I may not have the best gaydar. I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, when George Michael came out as gay. I am on the straight end of the spectrum and when I was a kid I thought George Michael was the manliest man on the planet and pulled all the hot ladies. Then again I have been to gay clubs where most of the attendees look like pro wrestlers and could easily beat me beyond recognition.

I also have never heard the world "elided" until this thread. I figured the OP misspelled "alluded."

that's my contribution to this thread. I do know Danny Wheeler did not have an affair with Pat Snee because he's not into incest, though, no matter what UM might have alluded to.

I remember this. I was also pissed off at comments like "ew lesbian badge thing."

Julie's friend was one of my favorite interviewees. She spoke highly of Julie, their similar competitiveness, and wanting to remember her and keep her badge. You could tell they were good friends and colleagues. It makes me seriously angry that people would mock their friendship and a woman wanting to remember and honor her friend. If any callous comments should be made, it should be about the scum responsible for the murder, not the woman who died in the line of duty or her friend who also works a job putting her life on the line to keep the streets safe.

I have a lot of admiration for Matt - seems like he was really ahead of his time.

He has one of the best smiles ever in that pic.

For the record, I have nothing but contempt for the thug who shot Julie and hope the case gets solved and the book gets thrown at him and have admiration for Julie's determination and wanting to do right by the community. I have no way of knowing one way or the other what the bond between Julie and her colleague may have been. However; if it turned out that had more in common than just being fellow officers, it wouldn't have come as a total surprise to me. And I think there WOULD be folks out there who'd bat or roll an eye if both the above were men re the badge.

Ahead of his time were the exact words that popped in my head when I read that. Doing the math, he had to have graduated high school in 1984, maybe the year before.

I went to high school in the late 90's, in a blue state where anything gay related was getting to be much less taboo. Still, during that time period, nobody dared to come out in high school. Everyone always waited until college. That's what I did. Matt on the other hand was protesting not being able to bring his boyfriend to prom in the mid-80's in a small, very conservative Oregon town. That's a completely different universe.

It's nice to find out this info. Usually victims profiled on UM were described briefly at the beginning of segments by Stack or a family member or friend. We never got that with Matt. All we learned about him was that he moved to California after high school.

The author made an interesting point about Medford, Oregon I had noticed and all the early cases related to there. I had never heard of the city before UM, but it's currently the 4th largest city in OR.

For years we wondered about Chase and we get the answer. So odd how things work.

Who could forget Melvin Eugene Hansen, Richard Boggs, Ellis Henry Greene, and of course party boy John Hawkins?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Boggs

http://lawandordnance.com/An-Outrage...rder-Plot.html

Here's John Hawkins today.

Oddly enough, John Hawkins refers to his potential soulmate as "female." Hmmm.

Matthew Chase, I definitely felt was gay. It looks like our suspicions were confirmed. I really felt sorry for his BFF when she was interviewed. You could tell how much she cared about him.

I do feel bad for the Dahls and Matthew's family. Teresa in particular seemed pretty confident Matt was still alive even though it was pretty obvious what happened and everyone else knew it. She must have been devastated to learn about the murder.

It sounded as if she was going through the "denial" part of the grieving process. I am sure she still thinks about him daily. I wonder what ever became of Teresa.

I just hope Steve Dahl (if they were lovers) was able to move on from such a traumatic loss.
