Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office The last time Karen Stitt was seen alive was Sept. 2, 1982. She'd spent the evening in Sunnyvale, California, with her boyfriend—at a mini golf course and playing video games at a 7-Eleven. Stitt hung out until near midnight, when it was time for her to catch a late-night bus back to her home in Palo Alto, about 10 miles away. But after her boyfriend dropped her off near the bus stop—as he was in a rush to get home before curfew—Stitt was abducted, raped, and stabbed at least 60 times.
