The Zip Tie Murder
When Stanislaus County Sheriff’s deputies respond to a motorcycle accident on a rural stretch of J-59 in La Grange, California, they are shocked to discover they have a murder on their hands. Robert Kope is found a quarter of a mile from his bike, strangled to death with plastic zip ties. Detectives face more questions than answers, especially after learning of a similar death linked to Robert several years earlier. With no witnesses and very little evidence to go on, the investigation goes cold. Was Robert a target, or was his murder a crime of opportunity?
If you have any information about the murder of Robert Kope, contact Detective Jesse Tovar at the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department at 209-525-7080, email email@example.com, or submit to our website.SUBMIT A TIP
