New clues sought in 1982 deaths of casino workers - 2016-07-07
The El Dorado County District Attorney's Office is seeking new information in the 1982 deaths of two South Lake Tahoe casino employees whose bodies were found in the south fork of the American River several months after they disappeared from their home.
Julie Schossow and Marilyn Putt were close friends and both worked as blackjack dealers at the Harrah's Casino in South Lake Tahoe, where they were closely associated with other casino employees, according to a District Attorney's Office news release. They were together when they disappeared from their home around midnight Jan. 12 or the early hours of Jan. 13, 1982. Investigators believe both were kidnapped and held captive for approximately three months somewhere between the South Lake Tahoe and Placerville areas.
