After a whirlwind romance and marriage, a man strangles his wife in a jealous rage.
In 1985, Sally Garrity of San Francisco, California, wanted to settle down, but had not yet found “the man of her dreams”. Then, in February of that year, at a neighborhood tavern, Sally thought she had met the perfect mate, a young man named Sal Guardado. Sheri Ysit was happy for her sister:
Sally was half Irish and half Shoshone Paiute Indian. She made and sold Native American handicrafts. Sal worked part-time in a local pizza parlor. Sally brought her sister Sheri and her Aunt Lydia, who had raised the two girls, there to meet Sal. Within a week of meeting, Sal proposed to Sally and took out a loan for a diamond ring. But things didn’t stay romantic for very long. Sal lost his job and his car, and the couple was forced to move in with Sally’s aunt, Lydia. It seemed that Sal was always in a foul mood. He did nothing but watch TV and go bowling with his friends. When they visited a Native American festival, Sheri got a first hand look at Sal’s dark side:
Then, on May 23, 1985, three months into the relationship, Sal was at home when Sally was dropped off by a friend. When he noticed that the friend was a man, he flew into a rage. Sally’s aunt Lydia returned home in the middle of the argument:
A short while later, Lydia returned:
Lydia eventually regained consciousness:
Sally had been strangled to death. During the investigation, Sally’s family discovered that Sal Guardado was a convicted felon with a long criminal record. He had spent five years in prison for arson and the attempted murder of a former girlfriend.
Authorities immediately began searching the San Francisco area, but Sal was gone. Inspector Jeff Brosch of the San Francisco Police Department investigated the case:
Three months after Sal Guardado disappeared, a witness reported seeing him back in San Francisco at a fast food restaurant. However, authorities believe he may have gone to Miami, Mexico, Hawaii or Puerto Rico.

There is no way that’s legitimately him. The police would have arrested him by now if he had a social media presence

Cops stopped looking bc she is native smart I am and he is Mexican.
If you know where he is, you need to report this right away. He’s getting away with more than one murder I can bet on it.
He is a POS he came to the “Great American Music Hall” on O’Farrel st back in the day-
Theres no doubt HELL is in his eternal future, he would be 69 years old if still around
today. Hopefully he aint. Predator, probably other victims. He didn’t pay the price in this lifetime
but I guarantee you he will in the next
I met Sally when she came to stay in Owyhee, NV with relatives. We became close friends and had a lot of good times together. Sally had the most infectious smile and a great sense of humor. She taught me how to do eye makeup, and was never without her lip gloss. She carried around a giant purse, perfect for smuggling a six pack of colt 45 into a.movie theatre. She always had my back. We both left owyhee, and I never heard from her again. It was a shock to see her story on tv. RIP my friend.
He’s still in San Francisco he came back possibly a plumber. He def isn’t dead. Also you can always assume he’s going to turn up.
I met her in San Fransico at the Hotel Yerba Buena bar back in 1979. We became friends and I saw her just about every night since I stayed at the hotel for 3 week for a training. she was with me the last night I was there. I never heard from her after I left. Years later, My mother and I were watching Unsolved Mysteries and the host started talking about Sally. I told my mother that I knew her while in San Francisco. RIP Sally.
My mom is Rachel. She was his first wife.
Build the wall
I heard he went bowling one day and never came back.
Have any of you, people in San Francisco, Miami, Mexico, Hawaii or Puerto Rico ever seen this man before? I don’t know how old he would be right now, but I think he would be in his middle age today. Yoy might have seen him with a tattoo of a heart and arrow with the name “Rachel” on his upper right arm. If you have seen him before, you need to contact the authorities right away.
This man would be like 64 years old today. If you’ve seen him before, call the police.
He died. Word in the family is that he fled the US after the crime to Guardalaja, Mexico (where his father’s family was). Not long after he was there, a big earthquake hit Mexico and his family never heard from him again. They say he died
“I heard he died in Mexico. No used searching. Nope.”
Posted by S Guardado. I’m onto you Sal!
It is terrible that crimes like this continue to happen and its perpetrators go unpunished.
I agree, just like the murders of Dick Hansen in 1991, David Eugene Hurley in 1992 and Richie Aderson in 1997. I am glad they recently caught the man who killed Roger Dean way back in 1986. They nabbed his killer, Michael Jefferson, in April of 2021 after all the advances in DNA. Even I can NEVER figure out how the HELL can these criminals get away with murder for over 30 years and it does not bother their conscience, assuming they are still alive today.
If this man would be 64 years old did u ever check Facebook because there is a man there that resembles his face. Now what are you going to do about it.
I saw him on Facebook are you guys that Dumb?f
