Murders of couples

The unsolved murder of a couple, Ann Barbara Durrant and Leif Bertil Carlsson, on Vancouver Island in 1972 has notable similarities to the unsolved murder of a couple, Lindsay Cutshall and Jason Allen, in Northern California in 2004 (there are also similarities to a murder in Arizona; for a comparison to the Zodiac, a subject which always comes up in unsolved murders of couples, see threads here and here and especially here).  There was a lot of evidence, some of it strange, found at the Northern California murder scene.  Given the reaction of his surviving family members, it appears likely that the main suspect in the first set of murders, Joseph Henry Burgess, is still alive.

Where would lovers of true crime be without California?
