Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Debra disappeared from the parking lot of Viewmont High School in her hometown of Bountiful, Utah during the evening of November 8, 1974. Authorities determined she was a victim of the serial killer Ted Bundy, who confessed to her murder before his 1989 execution.
Only Debra's patella was ever recovered, and initially it could not be identified because DNA testing was not available. It has since been identified, and Debra is no longer listed as a missing person.
Other girls and young women who are still listed as missing persons but believed to be Bundy's victims include Nancy Baird, Ann Marie Burr, Lynette Culver, Julie Cunningham, Susan Curtis, Georgeann Hawkins, Vicki Hollar, Rita Jolly, Donna Manson, Denise Oliverson, Nancy Wilcox, and others.
