Psycho For Love: William Douglas killed Robin Nadine Benedict and disposed of her body in a landfill (which has never been found)

This is a case that has stuck with me since I read the book, “Missing Beauty”, by Theresa Carpenter. I do not care what Robin had done for a living for a while. She was still a human being with a family and friends. She did NOT deserve what happened to her. She deserved justice, but did not get that. William Douglas made a deal, was sentenced to 20 years for manslaughter. He did not fulfill (in my opinion) his terms of the plea deal. He did not lead them to her body. I believe he lied about where she was. She deserved better than this.

  1. What happened to William Douglas?


  2. Funny ,he was a teacher near where I live.No justice there…Robin was so young.


  3. I went to High School with Robin, she was a great person and very talented. We all make choices and sometimes there not the correct ones. We try to learn by our mistakes and do better, I believe she was doing better in the early part of 1983. I also believe and pray the monster that murdered her will face judgement day by Gods hand. Rest in peace Robin, you will never be forgotten.
