CHRISTINE WALTERS MISSING: Words like bizarre and disturbing don’t begin to describe the vanishing of Christine Lindsey Walters, a sparkling 23 year-old student from the University of Wisconsin, who came to the West Coast, innocently, and bless her heart, was never seen again. The following story is related with the utmost sympathy for Christine’s surviving family, for whom this nightmare is still ongoing.
2008: Two or three days after after attending a “Tea Ceremony” with 20 other people and a shaman, Christine appeared at a stranger’s door, pleading for help, in California’s beautiful and dangerous, Humboldt County.
Christine Walters feet were cut and bleeding, her naked body was covered with scratches and abrasions from head to toe. She mumbled horrifying words about being chased in the night through the Humboldt forest, but could not explain the incident further. Paralyzed with fear, she refused to talk about what she witnessed or how she became naked. She was immediately transported to St Joseph’s Hospital in Eureka.
While in the hospital, Christine’s ongoing terror was apparent. She expressed that “they” would find her wherever she went. She tested negative for drug intoxication and was later allowed to leave the hospital. Arrangements were made with her family to come home as soon as possible.
That night, Christine stayed at The Red Lion Inn, Eureka, after being released from St. Joseph’s Hospital. She was last seen at a print and copy store the following day, acting visibly nervous while attempting to receive a fax from her parents, to replace her missing identification and enable her to buy a plane ticket home.
Sadly, on November 14, 2008, Christine vanished.
CALIFORNIA COLD CASE: It remains unclear if a rape test kit was performed on Christine while in admittance at St. Joseph’s Hospital. If so, the presence of semen or DNA might provide a valuable lead to investigators in the near future. Thankfully, in 2012, the voters of California passed Prop 69, which requires a DNA sample be taken from anyone convicted of a felony. If, in fact, a predator was involved in Christine’s disappearance, he may slip eventually. Let’s hope so.
Christine’s backpack was later recovered from a spiritual center near Arcata, 20 miles north of where she was found bleeding on Tompkins Hill Road. Her I.D. and wallet were still inside.
Christine Walters is a vibrant strawberry blonde female with blue eyes.

A word of deep sympathy for the Family and Friends of Christine Walters, Beloved Daughter and Citizen of Wisconsin. What a lovely young lady. I pray she will make her way back to you someday. True Love Never Dies.
*A WORD OF CAUTION to young people thinking of coming to California, especially the Emerald Triangle. Infamous 420 places such as “Murder Mountain” derive their names from actual homicides, both solved and unsolved that truly exist. Be aware, the “natural” or “sustainable-green” culture of Northern California is weaved together with the ever-present and deadly marijuana culture. While marijuana itself may be medically acceptable, the greed for profit and gun carrying paranoia create an unstable and highly dangerous current, even in the most quaint of towns. Furthermore, just because a place or people claim to be “natural”, doesn’t mean they are safe to be around. If you do come to California, exercise extreme caution.
