“Final chapter” of 1980 homicide victim’s story to be told on TV

“On the Case” with Paula Zahn will air at 10 p.m., and Scott’s sister, Beverly Canfield, said she would be watching at home in Lebanon, Conn., with her husband and friends.

The family wants people to know who Louisa Scott was and to warn would-be victims of serial rapist Edward F. Boyle Jr., who fatally strangled the 20-year-old on May 31, 1980, in Coventry.

Boyle, now 56, is incarcerated at the Brooklyn Correctional Center. Scott’s family is hoping he remains incarcerated at least until his parole expires in November 2024.

The 1976 murder of 18-year-old Cynthia May Hernandez, a Glendora woman who was found decades later buried in the San Bernardino Mountains, and the case against her killer will be featured Sunday evening on the Investigation Discovery channel.

Hernandez left her home on Aug. 26, 1976, to catch a movie alone at the Fox Twin Theaters in Covina, according to a news release from the San Bernardino County District Attorney. But Hernandez, a recent Charter Oak High School graduate, never returned home.

The next morning, the young woman’s family found her 1963 Chervolet station wagon in the theater’s parking lot. Fearing for her safety, they filed a missing person’s report with Glendora Police Department.
