April 30-May 18, 1961: Three Garden Grove teenagers riding their bikes along Lampson Avenue near Knott Street, an area of tomato fields, find a woman's head wrapped in a plastic bag that had fallen out of a box marked "fragile."
In the next few days, other body parts were discovered across Southern California: A leg near Big Pines in Angeles National Forest and a torso in Box Canyon in Ventura County.
The victim was initially identified as Dorothy Hamilton, but she and her husband were found in Las Vegas. Then local newspapers published a sketch of the victim and her family identified her as Hildreth Shaw, 51.
Her husband, Darlington W. Shaw, a cabinetmaker, admitted killing her and dismembering the body in the bathtub of their Santa Monica apartment. He was sentenced to life in prison.
