Killers Convicted but Real Name of Victim Still Unknown



It was May 30, 1974 when the Connecticut State Police went to a house on Shewville Road in the then quiet town of Ledyard. They had been given a tip about two murders and dug up a shallow grave in a wooded area behind the house. The decomposed bodies of a man and a woman were found. The man was successfully identified as convicted bank robber, Gustavous Lee Carmichael. Carmichael was a serial bank and had even escaped custody from jail. He and the woman (who was his girlfriend) used the aliases, Dirk and Lorraine Stahl before their murders on December 31, 1970.

Richard DeFreitas and Donald Brant were convicted of the murders. The reason why they killed the two was a result of concerns that the unidentified woman (Lorraine Stahl) would divulge details of the illegal activities of Carmichaelís.

The victim is described as being in her early twenties with red hair. She was about five foot one and between 110 and 115 pounds. Police believe that she may have been from either New York or possibly from Maine. She may have also driven a 1964 Green Oldsmobile with either Massachusetts or Maine plates. Pictured above is a ring found on the female victim. If you know who this unidentified female is, please contact the Connecticut Medical Examiner at 860-679-3980. As of June 2012, Defreitas is still alive and serving a life sentence in prison.
