Who Killed 14-Year-Old Claire Hough, Whose Mutilated Body Was Found on Calif. Beach in 1984?

For more than 30 years, police sought the killer of 14-year-old Claire Hough, whose mutilated body was found by a homeless man in 1984 on a stretch of Torrey Pines State Beach near San Diego. She had been sexually assaulted.

The homeless man, Wallace Wheeler, had been sleeping at his sister’s house, which was just 100 feet away from the home of Claire’s grandparents.
