Did Stephen King’s Son Just Solve a 44-Year-Old Murder Mystery?


It wasn’t your typical jump-scare, no image of a hungry Great White Shark attacking a beachgoer. Instead, it was a scene in which a crowd boards a ferry on the Fourth of July, a seemingly innocuous moment in Steven Spielberg’s iconic masterpiece. In the shot, a female extra wearing a blue bandana over her auburn hair caught Hill’s attention. She was “almost a twin of the figure” in a forensic recreation image he recently saw of the Lady of the Dunes, the still-unidentified murder victim discovered in Provincetown in 1974—the very same year Jaws was filmed on nearby Martha’s Vineyard.

  1. Super interesting and eerie. I was 17, when Jaws came out. I was one of the lucky ones to see it in a theater rather than just on the television screen. It was incredible then…and I watch it at least once a year now. I can’t wait to tell my husband about this possible murder mystery connected to it.

  2. We enjoyed talking this mystery over at dinner last night. Thanks for posting it.
