For two years there were no leads in the murders. Then, the cops chose to launch more information in hopes the general public could assist determine extra suspects. They released poems and drawings found near the murder site and a “visitor book” found in a driftwood hut on the beach. They also revealed that they discovered “Camo” beer near the murder website, which was mainly dispersed in Wisconsin. They likewise provided a $50,000 reward for info causing the killers arrest.
On August 14, 2004, they were both killed by.45-caliber Marlin long rifle (an uncommon type of gun) as they slept on the beach. None of their belongings were missing out on and neither Lindsay nor Jason were sexually attacked. They were just killed in their sleeping bags and left. When a helicopter pilot identified them and alerted authorities, their bodies werent found till August 18.
Regrettably, Lindsay and Jason were the exception to the guideline.
In 2004, 22-year-old Lindsay Cutshall and her fiancé, 26-year-old Jason S. Allen were living the dream. The daring couple were both from the midwest and fulfilled at Appalachian Bible College in West Virginia. They became engaged 6 weeks after meeting and were going to get wed in the fall.
The list below year, in November 2005 I spent the night in a sleeping bag on a beach a few hours north of where Lindsay and Jason were killed. I had never ever heard of the murders. Like the couple, I d been taking a trip. A group of buddies were investing the night on a few campgrounds in Brookings, OR. Three people decided to bring our sleeping bags to the beach, a brief hike from the camping areas. We wanted to sleep under the stars and wake up to the noise of ocean waves.
That summer season, Lindsay and Jason had tasks as counselors at an outdoors summertime Bible camp in the Sierra Nevada foothills in California. Nearing completion of summertime, the couple chose on a weekend roadway journey. They went to San Francisco and checked out the Fishermans Wharf. They then increased the coast and dropped in the tiny town of Jenner in Sonoma County, CA. Its thought that the couple was unable to discover a space to invest the night in the traveler town of just over a hundred individuals, so they decided to sleep on the beach in a state park. Camping on that beach is technically prohibited, but its common in California for people to sleep on beaches and it is ruled out unsafe.
We were foolish and young. We didnt have a flashlight or cellular phones, we used the flash of a cam to discover our way back to our sleeping bags when it got dark. Lindsay and Jason werent doing anything unusual or harmful, they were regular 20-somethings doing regular 20-something things.
13 years after the murders on May 5, 2017, the Sonoma County Sheriff announced that they had made a “significant advancement” in Lindsay and Jasons murders. An early person of interest in the event who had never been ruled out as a suspect, was now being charged with the murders.

Of the Jenner, CA murders, Gallon confessed that he saw the couple sleeping while strolling on the beach. He eliminated Jason Allen. Lindsay Cutshall woke up and saw her fiancé dead next to her prior to Gallon killed her, too.
What interrupts me about Gallon, is that it still took 13 years to connect a well understood extreme animal abuser (Ill spare you the details) to the Jenner, CA murders. At one time, one of two females Gallon had kids with threatened to turn him in and gather the $50,000 reward the Sonoma County Sheriff was providing. Plainly many people in his life thought that Gallon had actually done something really incorrect.
” We are extremely delighted that our kidss murderer remains in custody where he belongs. We applaud the Lord for his capture and we trust in the due procedure of the law. We would like to thank the wholehearted concern of the individuals of Jenner and Sonoma County. We have actually valued your assistance for this case throughout our thirteen-year experience.”

When the bodies were found, Gallon says he burned his shoes to get rid of the proof. He then called his father and asked him to get rid of his.45-caliber Marlin long rifle. His dad obliged. Gallon says he was driven by “hearing voices” and alcohol addiction. Law enforcement working the case disagree, they state Gallon is a malignant narcissist who hunted victims like prey and felt no regret for his criminal activities. Gallons loved ones, blame a bad trip he had on LSD in 2000.
