    ORANGEVALE, Calif– To the shock of the community, beloved senior couple, John and Christoria Bilkei were found dead on July 26, 1980. 

    JOHN AND CHRISTORIA BILKEI MURDER- Sadly, these sweet Grandparents had been violently attacked and stabbed to death in their own home on Donnawood Way in Orangevale.

    It was obvious to investigators that a tremendous struggle had occurred but there was no clear murder suspect to name. In the 1980’s the use of DNA by law enforcement had not yet become available. An arrest was never made in the case.

    The Bilkei’s double homicide remains unsolved after 37 years.
