SEATTLE — King County sheriff’s detectives are looking for any ties between a convicted killer and a Seattle-area teen who disappeared in 1985.
They say 19-year-old Virginia “Anne” Rambus lived near Jesse Pratt in May 1985, when she vanished on her way to a party. Pratt was well known to teens living in the Skyway area south of Seattle.
Seattlepi.com reported that a year after Rambus disappeared, Pratt killed Seattle resident Carrie Love while in Oregon. Now 67, Pratt is serving life in prison without parole.
Cold case detectives are re-examining evidence in the Rambus case.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West notes that witnesses told detectives Rambus knew Pratt. Pratt has not been described as a suspect in the teen’s disappearance.
