 The victims lived with Judd in this cottage in Phoenix, Arizona.



Heirlooms, pictures, and letters belonging to the slain women and their murderer, Winnie Ruth Judd,
were found in the two trunks and suitcase. Judd had put the two bodies and their belongings into
these trunks, and attempted to ship them to California. Many of the articles were bloodstained.
