Shari Miller had always dreamed of being a model.
The bright 21-year-old graduated top of her class at Culver City High School in California.
On July 4, 1984, Shari was working a shift at the Meet Market bar in downtown Los Angeles. There she met a man named William “Bill” Bradford.
Shari told Bradford about her modelling dreams and he told her he was a professional photographer and offered to take her photos for free.
Bradford then lured the young woman to a remote desert area north of Los Angeles. Once they arrived at the deserted location, Bradford took some photos of Shari. Then he strangled her with her own boot lace.
After killing Shari, Bradford sliced off her tattoos and removed her blouse.
