The phone rang at the residence of Dorothy's Parents. Dorothy's mother Vera answered.
“Are you related to Dorothy Scott?” [Disguised male voice]
“I’ve got her.” The caller then hung up.
Around a week later Jacob's patience understandably ran out. He contacted the Santa Ana Register and they ran a story regarding Dorothy's disappearance. The day of the story editor Pat Riley received a call.
“I killed her,” the male caller told Riley. “I killed Dorothy Scott. She was my love. I caught her cheating with another man. She denied having someone else. I killed her.” He also provided details to prove that it wasn't a prank call. That Dorothy wore a red scarf. And that Conrad had suffered from a spider bite. He stated that Dorothy phoned him from the UCI Medical Center. However Pam Head disputed that stating she and Dorothy were always together while Conrad was being checked. Except to use the bathroom before going out to the parking lot. (This was a time before the time of cell phones becoming commonplace.) Investigators confirmed the alibi of Dorothy's ex and father of her child Shawn. His alibi was considered airtight. The case seemed cold. But the calls kept coming....
THE CALLS CONTINUE:
Almost EVERY WEDNESDAY the calls came to Vera and Jacob's house. The calls would come in when Vera was home alone.
“Is Dorothy there?”
“I’ve got her.”
"I've killed her."
LE did wiretap their phones. They have recordings of his voice. Its described as gruff and plainly disguised. However the caller would never stay on the phone long enough for the calls to be traced. (Pussy) The calls finally stopped in April 1984 when he called and Jacob answered the phone. The caller hung up. (Like I said Pussy. POS prob wet himself.)
DISCOVERY OF DOROTHY'S BODY:
In August 1984 a construction worker discovered found some skeletal remains in some brush off of Santa Ana Canyon Rd in Anaheim. A turquoise ring and watch were also found which were used to identify her body. (The watch was stopped on 5/29/1980 12:30 am) A week later an autopsy would confirm the remains as well. Cause of death could not be determined. There was also remains of a dog on top of Dorothy's remains. Dorothy did not own a dog. (Beneath the remains of the dog underneath some soil were what was left of Dorothy's remains.) Not all of Dorothy's remains were discovered. It was only a partial recovery. A pelvis, an arm, two thighs, and a skull. After the announcement ran in the paper. Vera again received a call.
“Is Dorothy home?”
The calls stopped soon thereafter.....
Jacob passed away in 1994 and Vera in 2002. Dorothy's killer has never been brought to justice.
Baffling, According to LE (From what I've read) they did extensive investigative work on her friends, coworkers, and family members. She was a known homebody and dated very rarely. According to her parents she wasn't actively dating anyone. The guy had to have been watching or informed to Dorothy's whereabouts very quickly the day she was abducted. The meeting she was attending may have routine.(possibly) If the meeting was NOT routine. Then that's VERY interesting. But the incident regarding Conrad and her taking him to the hospital was not. He knew she was with Conrad and Pam. Even later that she was wearing a Red Scarf and that Conrad suffered from a spider bite. Granted he could have learned that after he kidnapped her. But he already knew she was at the hospital. He knew her routine and what she wore daily as well. According to reports she was either at home or work. That narrows it down right there. She worked in the back as a secretary. Didn't have much contact from what I understand with customers. Seems like a narrow suspect pool to me. I just have this feeling there is something else here that we have not been told. Something important. I'd like to know if the initial reports of a second car was either true or an error. It seems to have dropped after the one article. That is an important part. The killer would have had to have drove or been dropped off. If dropped off then there is more than one responsible. If not then he left his car in the hospital parking lot when he presumably drove off with her in the car. That means he would have had to have come back to get his car. So he either walked 10 miles or was given a lift, via an accomplice or a bus back to get his car. OR there were 2 (or more) involved in this. Meaning the abductors kidnapped Dorothy and drove her car. And the accomplice(s) drove their car off as well. Which would lend credence to the first report of another car. I am pretty sure there is MORE than one person involved. He also stated that Dorothy called him from the hospital. Which Pam said was not possible. I strongly suspect that the killer stated that to have LE believe Dorothy did in fact tell him. Instead of someone else. There is much more here than meets the eye. The length of time this case has gone unsolved leads me to believe it won't be. Granted crimes have gone on longer and been solved. There are just a few things that really bother me. Depending upon the lighting in the parking lot as well as the distance from where they spotted Dorothy's car. How did Pam and Conrad know it was Dorothy's car? How did they know Dorothy's Parents Phone Number? Im sure they would have had Dorothy's Phone Number. I mean I don't know what Pam's position was at the store. But I remember my mother having an address and phone listing in her purse when I was young. So Pam could have had one handy. But her parents phone number as well? Dorothy lived with her Aunt. I doubt her workplace would have had that number. Who knows. Maybe they did. Maybe it was an Emergency Contact Number. And maybe Pam and Conrad called the store to get the number and then called Dorothy's Parents. It's possible. But the only people that would have known that Dorothy was going to the hospital were the attendants of the meeting, Dorothy's Parents, and apparently her stalker. So we would have to believe the guy followed her EVERY DAY. As well as calling her. And NEVER was seen by an increasingly alarmed Dorothy. Alarmed to the point she was taking self defense classes and thinking of purchasing a gun. So the guy followed her to work. Sat outside and followed her home everyday. So this day he followed her to the meeting. Then followed her to the hospital. And sat outside and waited? What would've happened if all three went out to the parking lot? Something isn't adding up. Did Dorothy volunteer to take Conrad to the hospital or ASKED? Did Dorothy volunteer to pull her car around to the front of the hospital or ASKED? Why would Dorothy stop at her parents house on way to the hospital? I understand she wanted to let her parents know. But she could have called from the hospital as well. So that leads me to believe that Conrad's condition wasn't as bad as it was made out to be. Oh and the dog was likely unrelated. Too many questions. Not enough answers.
