I've recently been in contact with Shawn Scott, Dorothy's son. He added some interesting things to my investigation of his mother's cold case. First off I was able to obtain a few pictures of Dorothy that he sent me. I wanted to see more than just the grainy newspaper pic we all have seen a thousand times.
Also, Swinger's Psych Shop was a store that was previously owned by Dorothy's Father Jacob Scott. John Kycola purchased that store having already owned Custom John's Shop in Anaheim.
Apparently there was a suspect that Shawn became aware of through several of Dorothy's friends who lived in Missouri. The suspects name was MIKE BUTLER. Apparently, Butler was an unstable individual who lived in the Santiago Mountains and was involved in cult activity. Which makes me think the dead dog that was discovered with her remains makes all the more sense now. Apparently he was obsessed with Dorothy. (Sound like our caller anyone?) His sister worked with Dorothy at Swinger's Psych Shop. (Funny, It makes total sense now as to how the stalker would know Dorothy's schedule so well.) Butler's sister has done pretty well for herself. She is somewhat of a local celebrity. She is a singer who still does concerts. I am NOT going to release her name at this time. Those who do research will figure it out. Shawn has tried on numerous occasions to speak with her and she avoids it from what I understand. Apparently LE was aware of Butler at the time. But never had enough evidence to consider him a suspect or person of interest. An interesting aspect of this is that when I was giving Shawn the breakdown of what I knew about his mother's case he was never told the names of Pam Head and Conrad Bostron. He knew of the story. But the names as far as he knows were never mentioned to him. I still stand by my suspicions regarding Head and Bostron's story. Something doesn't make sense. The part about them knowing Dorothy's parents phone number makes more sense now. Apparently after Dorothy's Father sold Swinger's to John Kocyla. John would still use Jacob as sort of a handy man to fix things around the shop. And his number was something well known to the employees of Swinger's. I do not remember reading that Jacob Scott owned Swinger's anywhere on the various online sites and newspaper articles I read about this case. But that part makes sense now. Another thing is that the employees of Swinger's were all like family to the Scotts. And Jacob Scott never suspected anyone at Swinger's to be involved. I tend to disagree here. The time frame in which it took Bostron and Head to call anyone regarding Dorothy "leaving" still does not make sense to me. Shawn and I also discussed his mother and if he remembers a lot about her. Unfortunately he does not. He was only 4. But from what he understands she was very loving and caring. He told me she made her own clothes out of old curtains to make sure she could buy him what he needed. And that after she was murdered. Dorothy's circle of friends offered to adopt Shawn. But his Grandfather Jacob Scott wouldn't have it. Apparently Jacob Scott had a major positive impact on Shawn. Apparently Jacob Scott passed away on Dorothy's Birthday in 1994. I suspect it was grief.
I'm went ahead and added some info to this original update. I've sat on this for a good amount of time. I am gonna go ahead and say that im not sure how good a suspect Butler is regarding Dorothy's murder. But I was able to find some info on him. (I was emailed some of the info by a reader of this blog.) As you can see. He has passed away.
