Richard Bible

On June 5, 1988, Rich Wilson, his wife and 9-year-old daughter, Jennifer, arrived in Flagstaff, Arizona, for a short vacation. The following morning, the family planned on doing some horse riding at a ranch close to where they were staying. The ranch was just over a mile away, via a Forest Service road, and so Jennifer’s parents agreed to let her cycle the distance on her bicycle. They waved as they passed her on the road. It would be the last time they ever saw her alive.     

When Jennifer did not arrive at the ranch, her parents went looking for her and found her bicycle abandoned by the side of the road. Jennifer’s mother then called the police and a search was immediately launched, a helicopter called in, roadblocks set up. Since this was a suspected kidnapping, the FBI was also alerted.

That same day, a man named Richard Bible arrived at his brother’s home, not far from the abduction site. Bible was a habitual criminal who had just recently been paroled from a sentence for abduction and sexual assault. He was driving a dark-colored GMC Jimmy SUV, which he claimed he’d borrowed from a friend but which his brother suspected might be stolen. As soon as Bible left, his brother called the police, told them of his suspicions and described the SUV.

The report was particularly interesting to officers investigating Jennifer’s disappearance. Jennifer’s mother had reported seeing a dark-colored Ford Blazer in the area at the time of her daughter’s disappearance. To the untrained eye, a GMC Jimmy could easily be mistaken for a Blazer. Moreover, a check into Bible’s background showed that he had a long history of sexual offences.

At 6:20 that evening, a patrol officer spotted a GMC matching the description of the suspect vehicle. When the officer turned on his roof lights, the GMC immediately sped off.  A high-speed chase then ensued with the driver eventually abandoning the vehicle and fleeing into the woods on foot. Richard Bible had to be flushed out of hiding by a police dog.  

Once in custody, Bible almost immediately confessed to stealing the GMC. However, he categorically denied having anything to do with Jennifer’s disappearance. He was then checked into the county lockup while his clothes and the GMC were taken into evidence. Processing the vehicle, officers found a strange assortment of items including numerous rubber bands, a case of Suntory vodka miniatures with two bottles missing, and a “Dutch Masters” cigar wrapper.

In the meanwhile, the search for Jennifer Wilson had intensified, with a unit from Marine Corps Air Station Yuma brought in to assist the police. Despite their efforts, Jennifer would remain missing until June 25, when hikers walking a trail on Sheep Hill made a tragic discovery. Jennifer Wilson’s decomposing corpse was found partly concealed under leaves and branches. She was naked from the waist down and her hands were tied behind her back with a shoelace. An autopsy would reveal that she’d been killed by three vicious blows to the head, delivered with such force that they had caused multiple skull fractures and a broken jaw. Although decomposition was too advanced for there to be any trace of semen, the condition of the corpse strongly suggested that Jennifer had been raped.

The crime scene also yielded a number of valuable clues, clues that all but named the killer. There were several elastic bands, two empty Suntory vodka miniature bottles, and an unsmoked Dutch Masters cigar. Detectives had noticed exactly those items in the vehicle Richard Bible had been driving. Additionally, there was plenty of fiber and hair evidence. Spots of blood had also been found on Bible’s shirt, pants, and boots. Sent for DNA testing, the blood produced a match to Jennifer Wilson.  

Bible, of course, wasn’t difficult to find. He was still in jail awaiting trial for the theft of the GMC. Now he found himself charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, and molestation of a child under the age of fifteen. He would subsequently be convicted on all charges in April 1990 and sentenced to death. After languishing on death row for 23 years, Richard Bible was eventually executed by lethal injection on June 30, 2011.
