On May 10, 1996, Crum, an ex-con with an extensive rap sheet, was charged with the murder of three adults and two children at a trailer park in Bandon, a town of 2,400 people along the Oregon coast.

His numerous previous offenses included assault, robbery, driving under the influence, carrying a concealed weapon and overall criminal mischief. Recently Girley--a curious name for a slasher --had served three years in prison for attacking someone with a screwdriver during a robbery.

The convicted robber was released the Monday before the killings after serving 21 days on a parole violation. Three days after his release he slit the throats of the Jacobs family in their trailer home. It seems that Girley knew the victims. Police say they have no motive for the slaying.
