Robin Ann Graham

Young Woman Disappears from Stalled Car

From: Missing Angels:

Missing Over 44 Years

On November 14, 1970, 18 year-old Robin Ann Graham spent her Saturday night hanging out with friends. After she dropped her one of her girl friends off, she dropped her car off at Pier One Imports where she worked part time in Los Angeles, CA around 1:45 AM. She left the store driving her boyfriend's car. The car was known to have stalled out around 2:00 AM on the Hollywood Freeway going south near Santa Monica Boulevard and Vermont Ave. A California highway patrol man says he saw her standing next to her car carrying a leather purse, and pulled over to see if she needed help. She claimed that her parents were on the way after she called them and told them she had ran out of gas. Her sister answered that phone call and relayed the message to her parents who arrived home around 2:30 AM.

He later saw her with an unidentified white male in his twenties who had his light blue hard top 1957-1960 Chevrolet Corvette parked behind Robin's boyfriend's car. The unknown man was wearing bell bottom trousers and a white turtle neck top. He stood at about 5'8" in height. The highway patrolman watched the unidentified male get Robin's boyfriend's car started, then they rode off in his car together. The patrolman says it appears Robin got into the man's car willingly.

The next day, her parents searched for Robin and found her car, locked up and abandoned on the side of the freeway. Robin has never been seen or heard from

Robin was a student at Pierce College when she vanished. She also had brown hair and brown eyes, and is 5'6" and weighed 125 lbs. She was last wearing a blue corduroy jacket with gold buttons, blue jeans, red clog shoes, a red Jersey blouse along with last being seen carrying a leather purse.

Months later, a woman came forward and said her car had also stalled alongside the freeway, and a man driving a Corvette stopped and offered to help her, saying he was an off duty detective. She refused his offer, and he left. There's been no proof this is the same man last seen with Robin, but it is probable. The woman later identified this unknown man as Bruce Davis, who is one of the numerous people suspected of being the Zodiac Killer.

Davis was a serial killer who held California in terror in the late 1970s. He continues to be a suspect in numerous unsolved disappearances and murders in California, including that of a couple that was found in an alley in the Silver Lake district not too far from Los Angeles. Each had been stabbed over 40 times. Not to mention, the realm concerning Davis' connections with Charles Manson, which is a whole different rabbit hole to jump into.

Being there is speculation Robin fell victim to the Zodiac Killer or Bruce Davis (or both, if they are one in the same), there are other cases we must look at that could be connected to Robin's disappearance.

From Wikipedia:

Robin Graham was last seen by California Highway Patrol officers at approximately 2:00 a.m. on November 15, 1970, beside her car on the shoulder of the southbound Hollywood Freeway near the Santa Monica offramp; she was in the presence of a dark-haired white man estimated to be in his mid-twenties who drove a late 1950s model Chevrolet Corvette C1, pale blue or green with primer. Graham used a call box to ask that a CHP emergency operator let her parents know she had run out of gas. Graham's younger sister took the call and relayed the information to her parents upon their return home at approximately 2:30 a.m. They went immediately to the location where they found Robin's car, but she was not there. There was no note found on her locked car. The CHP officers had stopped several times earlier and spoke with Graham but did not stop again when they saw her talking with the young man; the patrolmen assumed he was family, the help for which she'd called. The CHP officers were acting in accordance with policy; as a result of this case CHP policy was changed to ensure the safety of stranded female motorists.

Graham had been out Saturday night with friends. After dropping off a girlfriend, Graham was dropped off at her car in the Pier 1 Imports parking lot, at approximately 1:45 a.m. The initial report had Graham leaving voluntarily in the Corvette, but the CHP officer who made that report was requestioned and said he saw her in the presence of the young man but did not see them leave.

The case was handled by detectives at the Rampart Division of the LAPD who thought Graham's disappearance was possibly linked to three other similar cases involving young women over the previous two years, including Rose Tashman, an Israeli-born student at San Fernando Valley State College who disappeared in 1969. She had a flat tire on the Hollywood Freeway, a few miles from the location of Graham's car. Months before Graham's disappearance, another young woman, Cindy Lee Mellin disappeared on January 20, 1970; her car was found with a flat tire, she has never been found. None of the other cases were solved and all the other victims were found dead in the Hollywood Hills. In 1975, a similar disappearance took place from the San Bernardino Freeway, in El Monte. The skeletal remains of Mona Jean Gallegos were found nearly six months later in a Riverside ravine. At the time of her disappearance Graham had long brown hair, brown eyes, fair skin and was 5'6 in height.


Although it was the possible tie between this murder and the Zodiac killings of the 1960s that first attracted me to this case, I tend to dismiss this tie after thinking it through. This case has none of the hallmarks attributed to the Zodiac. For one thing, her body was never found and the Zodiac was not one to hide his kills. In fact, not only did he leave them out in the open but he wrote letters to the media and the police, bragging about them. I cannot see what he would gain by killing this girl privately. It just doesn't fit his method of operation. And I have done some of the known murders of the Zodiac to try and see if I could find a thread. I wanted to figure out similarities in the killer to shed more light on who he was but I could not find enough similarities to bring them together, which was highly disappointing. In fact, the charts all look as if different killers were responsible. I have no way of knowing if that could be the case or not so I just let it go. I promise, however, that as I work on my system and refine it, I will return to the Zodiac cases and look again. I would like nothing better than to help shed light on that mystery. As far as this case goes, I am seeing similarities in several others I am currently working on, including the last case I posted, Cindy Lee Mellin. In fact, this case and the Mellin case sometimes get me confused because they are so similar.

But continuing on to the case at hand, I drew up charts for the various times reported and read them all. But for this post, I will start with the time last seen by a credible witness, which was 2 am and 2:30 am where the police officer saw her with her abductor. Let's see what these charts have to say:

This chart, run for 2 am, which is the time her car apparently broke down, is very revealing. I have always wondered about the car thing. If it ran out of gas, then the problem was money, not the car. So her boyfriend must have run out of gas or was low on gas and could not afford to reup so he left the car. Robin got in it and quickly found out it was out of gas but apparently she didn't have the money to fill it up which she could have done easily, even having the cop help her. But she had called her parents, assuming they had the time and money to get the gas and go get her but it appears they weren't even home. Or at least not for another half an hour. This is the 1970s and nobody had cell phones. So she would have to wait for her parents to return for her sister to relay the message. But my real question is this. If she didn't have a cell phone and was out on a highway without means to get to a payphone, which were, even back then, hard to find, how did she make that call? That's what I would like to know. I guess no one has answered that question. Oh, and the idea that she had walked to a payphone from a major highway, which would mean a gas station, I suppose, then why couldn't she have gotten some gas? And how did she pickup the car at 1:30 am and then be seen at 2 am on the highway and still have time to walk to a gas station and walk back? Hmmm.... I feel like Columbo right now. LOL.

Looking at the chart, I see that Pluto is right at the first house cusp at 2 am. The seventh house ruler, Neptune, is in the third house with Mercury, showing this other person to be with her car. Mercury also rules the first house cusp so Robin is there with this person with the car. So the cop was telling the truth. I had, for a moment, thought that maybe the cop had lied and that he was the actual killer but the charts proved that wrong. Anyways, you can see that the Moon is in the ninth house in Gemini. This puts her out on a highway. The Moon in Gemini is disposed of by Mercury which is, as already noted, in the third house. So she is on a highway, concerned about her car. And then Mercury and Neptune are both disposed of by Jupiter, which rules the fourth house cusp. This tells us that both of these people are discussing how to get her home, to HER home, as shown by the fourth house which is always the residence of the subject. So this explains why she got into his car willingly; he was promising to take her home. But there are already omens in this chart which will have to be watched. Pluto is right at the first house cusp and moving across it. Saturn has appeared in the eighth. Now, Saturn does not rule any angles at this time and therefor has no real value in the chart but the presence of Saturn in a moving chart is scary because at any time, Capricorn can move onto an angle. And then it would have real meaning. The other thing we have to watch is the Moon in Gemini, now in the ninth, but probably moving into the eighth house in a short while. This while Pluto crosses the first house cusp into the twelfth and Mars moves through the first towards the cusp. Notice that Uranus is traveling with Mars and that Uranus disposes of the node. There is no death pattern in this chart and she is not dead yet but these omens indicate she may be very shortly.

I do not know how much later the police officer drove by the second time and saw her still there, but the next chart shows what happens to her.

Pluto has crossed the first house cusp into the twelfth and notice that Aries is now on the seventh and Mars is in the first. Mars with Uranus rising to the first house cusp with Uranus disposing of the node. This may have been a surprise attack but he had planned it. He knew exactly what he was going to do and how he was going to attack her, surprising her and throwing her off balance. That was his game. The first house ruler is now Venus and notice how Mars and Uranus are disposed of by Venus, showing her to be his purpose at this point. The whole reason he is out there, on this highway, looking to do this sort of thing, is to have the opportunity to kidnap a vulnerable girl. And here she was. So as soon as she is in that car, on her supposed ride home, he attacked her. And notice Venus. It has been in the second house for awhile but now it rules the first so it shows us her location. To me, when people are in a car, the second house is the storage area or the trunk. I think he knocked her out (Pluto and Mars in the first) and then put her in the trunk. And notice that, just as I had feared, Saturn has moved into the eighth house and now it rules an angle, the fourth house. So everything is coming together. The death pattern is emerging. But it won't be complete until the Moon joins Saturn in the eighth. It will do this in a chart or two, but for the meantime, this girl was alive in the trunk for a period of time. But I believe she died in that trunk. He left her there, with a serious head injury, and she died.

So I am wondering what he wanted with her? I mean, only to kill her and put her in the trunk? To what end? It almost makes me afraid to look at the other charts. But onward we go none the less.

And here you see the death pattern complete. The Moon slips into the eighth along with Saturn. You can see Venus still in the second, surrounded by other planets. This shows her still in the trunk and it looks like there's a lot of junk in there with her. None of these other planets rule angles so we know these don't represent people but they represent objects. Just for the sake of understanding Astrology, I will make note of few things here. Saturn, the death marker, is opposed to Venus, the first house ruler and Jupiter, which just represents some object. I would guess that her death was facilitated by an object put in the trunk with her, such as a blanket to smother her face or something heavy set down on her chest, as examples. This is truly unimportant in the progress of this analysis, but it does help shed light on Astrology in general.. and I can rarely resist doing that.

So now I am curious but also fearful. She has died in the trunk, perhaps on purpose, perhaps on accident. Did he want to have her alive? Or was his purpose to just kill her? What will he do with her now? I have to move on to find out.

It isn't until I ran this chart that I saw her being taken out of the trunk. The death pattern is still in place so he didn't revive her or anything like that. She was still dead but you can see the first house ruler, Venus, has moved out of the second and into the first house. Venus is in Scorpio, which is disposed of by Mars and Mars rules the seventh house from the twelfth. He takes her body to a private place, some place hidden from view. It is a place where he hides himself at times. Scorpio can imply crawlspaces, underground plumbing reservoirs, standing water and retention ponds, landfills, sewage runoff areas, places with lots of insects, etc... so I'm thinking maybe some place pretty nasty. Looking at the chart otherwise I note that the node is now in the fifth, her body markers are in the eighth and his markers are in the twelfth so there is possibility that he was a necrophiliac or some other such pervert and wanted to spend time with a dead body. Pluto, Mars and Uranus remain in the twelfth which makes me think that there is something about death and dieing that intrigues him. Saturn describes fear so perhaps a fear of dieing drives his interest in death so he satisfies himself by killing others. And yet there appears to be a sexual component here, too, so I would assume he only entertains himself this way with women. The node is in the fifth and Uranus rules the fifth with Uranus conjoined his marker, would indicate a sexual interest. I don't see aggressive markers with the sexual markers so I do not think he actually had sex with her. Still, Pluto disposes of Venus and is also changing signs, so her transition from being alive to being dead has some meaning for him.

The Moon rules the tenth house (a marker for authority) and is closing in on a trine with Mars, which is a sign that he will never be caught. Whether they know it or not, the authority has done things that have kept him free. Moon in Gemini hints at disagreements and two trains of thought that conflict. The ninth house depicts the lawmakers and lawyers and it, too, is ruled by Gemini and the planet Mercury. Confusion was a problem for the police and the lawyers could never agree on how to handle this case. It looks like they were more concerned in connecting it with other cases than solving it on it's own. I think the Zodiac idea grabbed them and kept them on the wrong track. The Moon went through an opposition to Neptune, which created clouds of doubt and possibly misleading clues. What people thought they saw may not be what they actually saw at all. Somebody may have outright lied about times and places. Both Neptune and Pluto are in the process of changing signs, so there were greater forces at work at the time that either clouded the clues in this case or turned people's attentions elsewhere. It never got the treatment it should have; that is not a personal assessment or judgment by me but is in fact shown in the charts.

The only change in the chart for 4 am (15 minutes later) is that Saturn has moved into the seventh house, showing her body to be in his possession. And the chart for 5 am seems to show that he put her body in an area close to his home and probably some place where she would not be accidentally discovered. Saturn is in Taurus and Taurus rules gardens and trees close to the home or even right next to the house. It also rules and describes dark closets, trunks, low rooms with thresholds under dirt, in fact, any dark place low to the ground. Taurus has this in common with Capricorn and Virgo. Pluto is still in Virgo here so this supports the same scenario. Pluto is in the eleventh house which actually describes hallways in the home and areas inside and outside the home where people gather. Outside, this is usually the patio. So I am thinking the charts are saying that she is buried in muddy ground close to the home and possibly around the patio. If the patio has pavers or other concrete or brick flooring, then that would fit as well. Especially if the area gets wet, has standing water at times, attracts mosquitos and other bugs and the pavers are often under dirt. This would fit the markers this chart is describing. So it is doubtful that Robin's body would have been found by accident and unless the police had a reason to suspect this person, the home would never be searched. And I think this is another reason he has never been caught and Robin has never been found. And, in my personal opinion, I do not think this was Zodiac but there is a very good chance that this is the same man who took Cindy Lee Mellin. Those two cases should be investigated for links.

Scott Guy

New Zealand Farmer Shot Dead on Farm

From Wikipedia :
Scott Guy was shot to death at the gate of the family farm in Feilding, New Zealand in July 2010. Six months later, his brother-in-law, Ewen Macdonald, was charged with the murder. Macdonald was married to Scott Guy's sister Anna and Scott was best man at their wedding. Both men used to manage the Guy's family farm and surrounding properties on Aorangi Rd a few miles from Feilding.

Macdonald was defended by high profile defense lawyer, Greg King. After a trial that captured the attention of the New Zealand media and public, Macdonald was found not guilty. King attributed the public's interest in the case to "unadulterated racism" as the victim and the accused were "good looking white people". Two months later, King himself was found dead in a suspected suicide.

Scott Guy was shot dead at the end of his driveway after he stopped to open a farm gate early in the morning of 8 July 2010. He died from shotgun wounds to his neck, face and arm. His body was discovered by a truck driver, David Berry at about 7.00am. Mr Berry called the police at 7.08am and then called his landlord, Bruce Johnstone. When Johnstone arrived, he took a quick look at the body and phoned Macdonald at 7.16am; two police cars soon arrived and Macdonald arrived on his quadbike shortly after that.  Macdonald immediately rang Scott's father at 7.21am sounding distressed and incoherent.

The police alleged that Macdonald had held a grudge against Scott after the latter returned from outback Australia in 2008 and said he wanted to inherit the farm. There was an on-going rivalry between the two. Because of the tension Bryan Guy, Scott's father called a number of family meetings to clear the air. Scott was given responsibility to raise the calves and grow the crops for the cows. Macdonald was given responsibility for the dairy side of the business. The tension appeared to have subsided and Bryan Guy reported that in the previous 12 months "everyone seemed to be getting along really well." Two weeks before the murder, MacDonald and Scott traveled to Invercargill together for a dairying conference. Nikki Guy, Scott's other sister, said the pair had a "fantastic time". At the trial, the Crown alleged Scott still wanted to take control of the farm and went to one particular family meeting with an agenda outlining his demands. The prosecutor claimed "this might as well have been his death warrant".

One of the Guy's former farm workers, Callum Boe, subsequently told police that he and Macdonald used to go on hunting trips they referred to as "missions". He told police that on one mission in October 2008, they torched an old home on Scott's section. In January, 2009 about 18 months before the murder, they vandalized a home being built by Scott and his wife, Kylee, causing $14,000 worth of damage. At the time no one knew that Macdonald was responsible.

Readers Account:
Scott Guy was shot from close range at the gate of his rural property 8th July 2010. in Feilding, New Zealand, believed to be between 4.45am and 5 am. His body was found by a neighbor at 7.05 am beside his truck. It was ascertained he'd been on his computer at 4.41am and was on his way to start work on his farm, milking cows, just along the road from his house. He would have got out of his truck to open the gate. His DOB is 21st Dec. 1978.

His brother-in-law who lived on the same family property and worked on the farm, Ewen McDonald was charged with his murder but found Not Guilty at trial. Ewen's date of birth is 5th June 1980. He was seen in the milking shed starting work at approx 5.03 am. when he deactivated the alarm. There was a history of competitiveness and some bad vibes between them but also good friendship. Some jealousy existed over their roles in the family farm business - Ewen believing he did more work than Scott who was the owner's son and more casual.

After the trial it became known that he was responsible for prior acts of vandalism against Scott and his wife's property, poaching neighbors animals, shooting neighbors deer, bashing to death some young calves owned by a neighbor etc. Acts that showed callous destruction and deception.  One of the unanswered mysteries in the case relate to 3 pure bred puppies owned by Scott's wife that went missing from a litter of 7, at the same time. They were noticed as missing the next day- last siting of them was 7th July 2010, the day before the murder. Neighbors testified to hearing 3 shots around 5 am , which would have made it impossible for Ewen to have done it and got to the cow shed on his bike , turn off the alarm ,without looking suspicious ( hot, sweaty, puffed etc on a winter's morning - also he would have had to dispose of the weapon.- and pups ).

The trial brought up lots of inconclusive evidence, but public opinion was that he would have been guilty, based on his "undercover" violent escapades. Wikipedia on google will have timeline and details, plus photos. I've not been able to figure out what to look for to represent the puppies! It's believed they could have been taken earlier as a way to make it look like it was linked to Scott's murder. The farm worker who arrived to milk the cows also saw on the road, 2 cars, around the time, but no one came forward and it's not known if they were significant.

Also, the day before a dodgy stranger smelling of alcohol and cigarettes came to the house looking for Scott - he has not been identified or located either. Ewen, married to Scott's sister since they were very young, went to school with Scott, lived on family farm and treated as one of the family. Worked very hard, excellent farmer, hunter, into gardening, good at sport, running, karate, coached kids rugby team, community guy, asthmatic, quiet, bottled up emotions, didn't like small talk. Put everything into his farming.


This came to me from a reader and the account given was from this reader.  I edited out parts of her account that don't matter here.  I was intrigued, especially since there had been an arrest and a trial, with the suspect being found innocent.  Since then no other suspects have emerged.  So whodunnit?  I ran the charts and wait until you see what they say!

It is assumed that he was murdered between 4:30 and 5:00 am at the gate on the farm.  I always run charts for the previous hour or two to see what is in place before the victim is murdered.  There is usually something going on.  So the first chart I ran for this event was for 4 am.

The earlier chart usually helps with the seventh house reading.  The chart should show who the person is that is coming along, the person the victim is going to meet next.  Well, this chart clearly shows that this person is a destructive criminal.  Pluto rules the seventh and is sitting in the eighth, a clear marker for a dangerous person who lives a criminal life.  Mars also rules the seventh and you can see it in the fourth house, showing this dangerous person to already be on this man's property.  Mars is disposed of by Mercury in the second so this criminal is a thief.  Pluto in the eighth is disposed of by Saturn in the fourth so the purpose was to enter the property and cause the death of someone there.  Saturn rules the dead body and it is in the fourth, this while we know he was shot to death on his own farm.  Mars is also there, as already noted, showing that the bullet was fired on the home property.  Pluto is conjunct the node so it looks like this was planned out and not a random or accidental event.  This man was targeted and probably by this vicious criminal.

It's to be noted that this man ran a dairy farm. Virgo is on the fourth house cusp and Virgo is a marker for dairies.  In turn, the cusp is disposed of by Mercury in Cancer in the second house and Cancer is a marker for milk and lactating mothers.  Mercury is the merchant, the trader, the businessman.  The second house is how this  man made his living.  The charts fit.

Noting that the first house ruler is Venus and she is in the third house, you can see that he had just walked out of the gate off of his property and was near to the road.  The cusp to the fourth would be the gate to the property and Venus is into the third, not far, but far enough to show him off the property and close to the road.  Is it known that someone drove by and shot him?  Or did they walk up from behind?  The charts clearly show the killer to already be on the property.  At the same time, I see that Neptune rules the tenth house from the ninth, showing this person's home to be in the woods or on land without a structure.  Neptune means he is not easily seen, he is hidden away and the ninth house shows his home to be outdoors.  Was the "dodgy stranger" a homeless man?  If so, he may be the criminal they are looking for.

The thing about the 4:30 am chart is the death pattern.  It is almost completely emergent.  This tells me he died closer to 4:45 am than 5:00 am.  Although time is not the same on Earth as it is in space, it gives a general idea of the spatial time.  Here it appears closer to 4 than 5.  Anyways, you can see that the eighth house ruler is now Saturn and it is in the fourth house; the secondary chart ruler, the Moon, is in the twelfth house; the Moon is 3 degrees sinister to Caput Algol, a fixed star that describes murder.  The node is still in the eighth house, showing planning.  And Pluto has moved into the seventh house, a marker for violence.  In the seventh house, this may well describe the killer.  The interesting placement of Pluto in Capricorn would describe somebody who was older, thin, scraggly and dirty, living a simple life or a life of few means, in poverty.  But it would also describe somebody who lived outside of society, rebellious, upstart, somebody desiring change and willing to create chaos to achieve that desire.  Many people dismiss Pluto because it is no longer considered a planet but now a dwarf planet.  But I have found Pluto to be forceful and predictive in forensics.  Dwarf planet or not, it is definitely a predictor of violence, uprising and even destruction.  It is almost always a predictor of change.  It just makes me wonder how many other dwarf planets are out there and what effect they may have in these events.

Pluto appears to be a director in this case.  As a descriptor for our killer, it describes a rough person who has strong desires and will resort to violence and chaos to achieve his means.  The position of Pluto in the eighth house early on shows us that this person is also a criminal, someone unafraid to break rules and lives outside of society.  In all cases I have seen this position describes somebody who cannot be trusted; somebody dangerous.  I think this describes the unknown stranger who has been described as "dodgy".  None the less, the killer was someone who lived in the woods by simple, hardscrabble means and was likely homeless.  In the chart for 4:30 am, the seventh house ruler, now Jupiter, is in the tenth house.  This shows the killer in retreat, as the tenth house shows his "home" or the place he calls his own.  This "home" described by the tenth house ruler, Neptune, which is in the ninth.  So he has run to the woods to hide.  Neptune is all about secrets and mysteries and this "home" in the woods is his hideout.  He used it effectively on this occasion as no one saw him retreat nor did they look for him in the woods.  He got away.

Saturn in the fourth house shows us the body in the grave. We know he wasn't buried but the fourth house indicates the body is at the home.  And we know he was killed on his own property.  Saturn is disposed of by Mercury in the second so the killing was done for money.  Perhaps there was something this man wanted, as Mercury can describe a thief.  But it also describes the merchant, the businessman and has an affinity with dairy farms.  There is a documented feud within the family over the farm and the money it made, with some people feeling cheated.  Feeling cheated is a feeling connected to Neptune, where one feels someone is "sneaking around".  There is no doubt that this murder was the result of someone sneaking around but was it connected to family?  Was this planned murder committed by a dirty stranger but paid for by a family member?  With the tenth house and fourth house so prominent, there are strong markers toward family business and what can only be described as secrets or things hidden.  The tenth house ruler is disposed of by Uranus in Aries, also in the tenth house.  Uranus is closely aligned with Jupiter, which rules the seventh but is also in the tenth.  There is a possibility that this was a paid hit.  That this dirty criminal that showed up there and shot this man did so at someone's elses behalf.  Both Uranus and Jupiter are disposed of by Mars and at the time of death, Mars was the bullet.  Mars, in turn, is disposed of by Mercury, which describes thievery but also clearly describes the family dairy farm.  So was someone stealing from the farm?  Was that the reason this man was shot?  I cannot tell for sure but the indicators do exist.

The 5 am chart does not show much else but it does show me that the gun was disposed of near the scene.  Saturn at the fourth house cusp shows the body right at the gate.  Jupiter, the seventh house ruler, is in the tenth, still showing the killer to be in his "own place" or home.  Jupiter is disposed of by Mars, which is in the third.  The gun was tossed in the woods but not far from the road.  It would have been left nearby but not directly at the scene.  This man felt safe tossing it in the woods, even close to the roadway, because he knew that nobody would connect him to it and perhaps even that no one was aware that he lived in those woods.  His presence was as thin as smoke.  Neptune kept him well hidden.  Uranus in Aries describes an outlaw and also a place where outlaws hide out.  He was hiding somewhere nearby but in a place not easily seen.  Both Mars, the  marker for the gun, and Saturn, the marker for the body, are disposed of by Mercury, which is the marker for a thief.  I believe the chart shows that the gun was stolen and he disposed of it where it might be found to frame somebody else for this.  Mercury also rules the first, so this person he was trying to frame would have been connected somehow to the victim.  If there were any guns missing from the property, this could point to the actions of the killer.

Mars in Virgo describes a small  handgun.  Moon in Taurus disposed of by Venus in Leo in the third describes a neighborhood belief that this victim was wealthy and had more than most.  In fact, his own relatives believed he had more than they did.  In general, people may have thought of the family as show offs or people who were self indulgent and overly proud.  There could have been a lot of envy.  Female members of the family may have behaved like princesses. I won't write that in stone but Venus is in Leo.  But public perception of this family was as if they were royalty.  And there was infighting inside the family over money; possibly some people were stealing.  People may have been taking more than their share and feeling entitled to it.  With Cancer on the second house cusp, there is no doubt that this farm supported everybody in the family and everybody in the family felt it was theirs.  I think it's fascinating that the Moon rules the second house and it is in the sign Taurus, which rules bulls and cows.

Pluto in Capricorn disposed of by Saturn shows a singular purpose in the execution.  Jupiter in Aries disposed of by Mars shows the killer came armed.  This criminal came there to murder this man.  Gemini on the first house cusp at the time of death may mean that there was actually more than one target.  Mercury is in Cancer disposed of by the Moon in the twelfth and this makes it feel like a secret plot; a scheme.  Neptune ruling the tenth also hints at deception and secret scheming.  The person who did this is best described by Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Aries.  So this describes what we have already discussed: a seedy individual who lived a hardscrabble life and had no qualms about committing crimes and living outside of society.  This person, as so many other criminal minds, lived (lives) outside of the law.  So the murder of this man was no big deal to the killer.  My only question is why.  Money seems to be a big player in the chart, giving me pause, especially with the markers for secrets and scheming.  It is possible that this was a paid hit.  I cannot find any ties in the charts that bring this man together with the family.  I do not see any family members connected to the murder.  So I have no idea who would have hired this killer.  In fact, it generally looks like this man worked alone.  Saturn in Virgo disposed of by Mercury in Cancer points to robbery.  Is it possible that this man just thought the victim would have money in his pockets?  At this time in the morning, getting ready to milk the cows?  It's possible but it seems sort of stupid.  I mean, would somebody kill this man in order to steal whatever coins he might have in work jeans?  Or are the money indicators telling us that he was paid to do this in advance?  This is all just conjecture however because the charts do not show motive other than theft.  Only those who know the finest details of this case will know if anything was stolen or if anyone was stealing on a regular basis and was seeking a way to cover it up.  But the charts clearly show a thief.

And the only markers that describe this man, Jupiter in Aries conjoined Uranus, describe a criminal.  An outlaw who may have spent time in prison, may even be on probation because he is living in the woods in a hideout, as if he were being looked for.  So it is possible that this wanton criminal was already in trouble.  But whether he went to jail for another crime in the meantime is hard to decipher.  So without searching those woods myself, all I can do is suggest that somebody should.
