Murder Monday: Sherri Rasmussen

Sherri Rasmussen was found dead in February 1986 in an apartment she shared with her husband, John Ruetten, in California. Rasmussen had been beaten and shot three times in a struggle.The case had been cold for over 20 years until the cold case unit of the LAPD realized they were missing something obvious. Police had thought it was a burglary gone awry. That’s how it looked, at least, to the Los Angeles police detectives who arrived at a gated condo complex in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles but it was far from the truth.

 

Stephanie's interrogation video is long but FASCINATING because she's completely blindsided and it's incredible to watch her attempt to spin a story that the officers will believe.
