Default Holly Krewson's remains found

LA MESA – A body found near Descanso in 1996 was listed as a Jane Doe by the county Medical Examiner's Office for 10 years until it was identified last month as that of Holly Krewson, who was reported missing by her family in 1995.

Holly Krewson's body was found 10 years ago, but wasn't identified until last month
Krewson, the daughter of a La Mesa print-shop owner, was 23 when she vanished. Unaware that her remains had been found, Krewson's family for years distributed tens of thousands of fliers on her birthday, listened to advice from psychics, made personal appeals on national television shows and followed leads on their own.

But a break in the case came didn't come until last month, when La Mesa police came up with information that would link Krewson to the Jane Doe. Dental records were used to confirm the identity.

Although the cause of Krewson's death remains unknown, the case now is considered an active homicide investigation. The unidentified remains were buried at county expense in 1996.

A family member confirmed the circumstances surrounding the discovery.

“They found Holly,” said Bruce Fenton, her uncle, who lives in Boston. “I can't say it's a shock. We pretty much thought she was dead all these years.”


Fenton, however, said there was frustration and “many questions remaining” over the fact that his niece's body was listed as a Jane Doe by the coroner's office all the years her family was looking for her.

“We want to know what happened and how she died,” Fenton said.

Other members of the Krewson family refused to comment at the request of La Mesa police.

Authorities are trying to find out how the body remained unidentified in a system designed to match missing people with found bodies, usually through dental charts and other reports filed with the state Department of Justice Missing Unidentified Persons Unit.

The Sheriff's Department investigated the discovery of the skeletal remains, found off state Route 79. The case now has been transferred to the La Mesa Police Department.

Sheriff's homicide Lt. Dennis Burgos confirmed the transfer of the Krewson case to La Mesa police and referred all calls to the department. La Mesa police would not comment, saying the investigation is ongoing and that any information released to the public now could jeopardize the probe.

The case gained notoriety, especially in the La Mesa business district, where the Krewson family owns a print shop on University Avenue and where Holly was well-known. The shop, Printing by Gwen, still has a missing-person flier of Holly from 1995 posted on an outside window.

Holly had aspirations to be an actress. She was a child beauty queen, a model and dancer who was born into an entertainment family. Her grandmother was a professional singer and pianist. Her stepfather played with the Lawrence Welk Orchestra. Holly was onstage at age 3.

When she was 11, Holly was molested by a family friend. Her parents later divorced, and Holly started going downhill, according to information provided to authorities from family members. She started using drugs, hanging around with a bad crowd and becoming what her brother called a “wild child.”

Holly rarely spent time at home, dropped out of high school and worked for a time at the Viejas Casino and various bars as a cocktail waitress.

She was 5 feet 3, weighed 110 pounds and had curly, shoulder-length blond hair and hazel eyes. She often wore shorts and halter tops and was fond of saying that if she married someone with the last name of Wood, she would be Holly Wood.

In 2002, she was the subject of a segment on the Montel Williams television show with a missing-people theme. On the program, a psychic said Holly could be found in Hollywood working as a dancer at an adult club.

The family went to Hollywood for a weekend and canvassed a number of nightclubs. Every time the family passed out a new batch of missing-person fliers, the calls of Holly sightings would come in.

Someone saw her in a wheelchair at the Embarcadero. Another caller said her body could be found buried in the backcountry.

That tip prompted the family to go to the supposed burial site and dig dozens of holes.

The file on the case at La Mesa Police Department headquarters grew to more than 3 inches thick. Veteran officers would comment that they had never had a case where the family was so involved.

During the years Holly was missing, La Mesa police and the Krewsons maintained a close relationship.

“When they would get leads, they'd call us and we'd check them out,” former La Mesa police Detective Mike McElroy said in an interview five years ago.

In a 2001 interview with The San Diego Union-Tribune, Holly's mother, Gwendolyn, had just returned from the annual trek she would make on Holly's birthday, Aug. 27 – packing her Ford Escort with thousands of fliers and driving north to Riverside and east to Yuma, Ariz., putting them on utility poles, apartment laundry-room walls, windshields of parked cars, anything not moving and some things that were.

“I will not stop trying to find my daughter until I'm dead,” she said then.

Gwendolyn Krewson died of an aneurysm in 2003.

This is really sad news.

I recall from the UM segment that Holly's mother was convinced that Holly called her after she disappeared, saying that she was in Ohio. In addition, a psychic believed Holly had been hospitalized somewhere, but confidentiality issues prevented Holly's mother from obtaining any medical records that could verify this claim.

The aforementioned circumstances gave me hope that Holly Kewson would eventually be found alive. But tragically, that was not to be.

Does anybody know which psychic on Montel Williams said that she was an exotic dancer in Hollywood? It didn't happen to by Sylvia Brown, did it?

Thanks for the update but such sad news. I wonder if her boyfriend is a suspect. From what they said about him on UM he should be.

Oh No Holly Krewson we will miss you

I was a next door neighbor of Hollys years ago when I was in High school. She was pretty cool to hang out with even though I was 3 years older than she was. She always seemed wise beyond her years and a strong willed soul. So it kind of amazes me how some low life transient could lure her into an abusive relationship. I don't know how they could rule out this Jack Sutton from being a suspect only because of some polygraph. If I were the Krewson family, I wouldn't rule out that loser. Also it might work to their advantage to go undercover and find out who this Humby is. Maybe ask around at lowlife bars or casinos.
Holly, you will and are missed by all who were blessed to have known you.
(your ex-neighbor)

Here we go with psychics again. The following is going to **** off some of you, so if you believe in psychics, you probably will not want to read the following diatribe.

There is a sucker born every minute. Those who believe in the snake oil salesman like Browne, Edward, and lightning strike boy need a lesson in critical thinking and the scientific method.

Professional psychics should be outlawed. Really, it should be illegal to charge money for this modern form of alchemy. John Edward is a scum bag. I will say it again, SCUM BAG. His smirk when he is duping people for their money just gets under my skin. He has made MILLIONS off the backs of an endless line of idiots. The guy drives a Rolls and lives in a 10 mil mansion thanks to idiots who believe in this crap. I also want to know when that flamer is going to come out of the closet?

My main complaint is against people like Edward who charge money for sessions with grieving families. People like him and lightning strike boy are the ultimate scum. I think all psychics are frauds, but people who charge for it REALLY **** me off.

Skeptic magazine, and others, have done excellent line by line reviews of some sessions of the famous psychics trying to do "cold reads." They give the psychics a thorough thrashing and expose all of their techniques. They also provide complete transcripts of readings that went bad. It is quite hilarious to read. They point out that only successful reads ever make it on the air. There are FAR more hilariuously wrong reads than "correct" ones. They also show how these psychics are incredibly quick at turning a bad guess into a "right" guess by using a technique of open ended questioning. These guys are good.

Use simple logic, folks. If someone is psychic, then why do they have to ASK the audience which spirit is coming through? Also, why can't they say "I am speaking to a spirit named Jim Jones from Colorado and he died in 1998." WHY do they have to say "it starts with a J, any J names in here?" Come on, folks. Don't be a lemming. It is a load of crap.

I have no regard for those who make money by cheating the emotionally unstable or the ignorant. Edward and his ilk are no different than mafia bosses, drug dealers or other criminal enterprises -- scum which should be eliminated from society by any legal means necessary. I would love to see Edward behind bars where the mendacious scum bag belongs. Let him tell big Bubba in the cell next to him how his aunt Hilda is doing.

CMONFORME-- I'm sure that others have posed this question to you, but has your husband spoken to you about Holly's disappearance? I'm not insinuating that I think he was involved, but I am curious to know if he had any idea as to who was behind Holly's disappearance. It certainly sounded like they had a turbulant relationship, but he could also know something that would lead to Holly's killer, if she was murdered.
