Appalachian Trail: Murder on the Mountain
Julianne Williams and Lonnie Winans were murdered in 1986 by a co-worker of Julianne, who thought that Lonnie stood in the way of loving him. He thought that if he got rid of Lonnie, Julianne would turn to him in her grief. He followed them. Lonnie had gone into the tent. Julianne went down to the creek to wash up. He opened the tent and killed Lonnie. When Julianne returned, he professed his love; she ran. He caught up with her near the creek and killed her. His name is either Dan or Dave. He is about 5'10" or 5'11". He was in the military for a short time, but was discharged for mental instability. He has dark hair and brown eyes. At the time, it was just over his ears; however, since then he has started to shave his head. There is a mole where his neck meets his shoulder. Several years ago, he developed an issue with his left knee. He has scars on his right wrist, next to his right ear, and on his left foot; he was involved with a bicycle accident as a child. He is obsessive-compulsive when it comes to relationships. He fixates on someone to the point of creating a relationship in his mind. At the time of the murders, he had three PPO against him in other jurisdictions. He works with computer programming. He has changed jobs several times and is now self employed. The first changes were voluntary transfers within the same company. During this time, he left the company for a short time because they refused to transfer him a third time, but asked to be rehired a year later. Currently, he is married with one child. The name Tina comes to mind and does the state New Jersey. He is very controlling of his family, keeping them isolated. Julianne and Lonnie were not the first, nor were they the last. There was one before and one since. As long as he is fully in control, he doesn’t kill; it is only when he is rejected that he turns deadly.
