RPD Hopes For Break In 20-Year-Old Murder Case

The Redding Police Department may be relieved with the arrest of a suspect in a 25 year old murder, but the shadows of other cold case homicides remain. Two days ago was the 20 year anniversary of the mysterious murder of another Redding woman. On November 17th of 2000, the department was confounded by the death of 35-year old Myrna Lynn Spuehler. She was killed inside her home on Cheryl Drive off Bechelli Lane in Redding during what appeared to have been a robbery. Investigators conducted many interviews but had no productive leads. Anyone with possible information about the murder of Myrna Lynn Spuehler is asked to call the Redding Police Department at 225-4200 or email them at coldcases@reddingpoloice.org.
