Victims: Margaret & Keith Conable
Case: SAPD 80-151611
Location: 400 block of Cherry Ridge

On May 9, 1980, neighbors reported hearing gunshots in the 400 block of Cherry Ridge. Around that same time, a 1973 tan/gold Mercury Montego was seen driving down the street at high speed. The vehicle was known to belong to Margaret and Keith Conable, so neighbors thought one must be ill, and they were driving fast to reach medical care.

The next morning, a neighbor noticed the Conables' car was still gone and went over to check on the house. The house was open, and when the neighbor entered he found both Margaret and Keith bound and badly beaten to death. The Conables' vehicle had been stolen, and radios from inside the home were also taken. At the time of their death, Keith was 53 and Margaret was 50 years old.

Despite several leads over the years, the case remains unsolved with no clear motive on why someone would commit such a brutal crime. The Montego's license plate is TX ECF275, and both the vehicle and the radios remain missing.
