On Oct. 2, 1966, Nancy Leichner, 20, and Pamela Nater, 21, joined their boyfriends and the Aquaholics diving club for a scuba diving excursion at the park. The picnic was in the Alexander Springs Recreation Area of the Ocala National Forest in Lake County, Florida.Reports indicate that the two women embarked on the park's nature trails separately while their boyfriends were diving. The last time the men saw them, between 2 and 3 p.m., they were hanging around the picnic tables.A short time later, the men returned, but the girls were gone.About an hour later, someone called the police.A witness later saw two girls walking along the trail with an unidentified man following close behind. The women left behind their shoes, money and keys. Over the years, many possible suspects were identified and then dismissed. Investigators determined that the girls were most likely taken from Alexander Springs by force and killed.After reviewing old files, Gerald Schaefer, a convicted murderer and former law enforcement officer, became a possible suspect.
