MacKenzie State Park… Park of the Unsolved Murders

If anyone has been to Mackenzie State Park, they know how isolated it is.

There are no real bathroom facilities no lifeguards and no pay phones around.

Another murder happened there this week.

Hans Christian Randrup’s murder, is the third murder in or near the park that has not been solved as of yet that I have heard of.

Dr. Philip Wolsk, 28, was found bludgeoned to death in his tent at MacKenzie on April 24, 1980. He’d been camping there with his fiancee, who was badly injured in the attack. The killers were never identified.

Sequoya Vargas, a 16-year-old Puna girl, was thrown over a cliff near the park the night of Aug. 22, 1993, after being sexually assaulted by three men…Vargas’ body was never found…

This is a STATE Park and yet we have all these unsolved murders happening.  Not a good sign.

Speaking of signs, I haven’t driven past MacKenzie Park in awhile… has the State ever put up a new official state sign… or does this one that Hunter Bishop took a picture of still exist down there?  Talk about State facilities getting run down… they can’t even fix a sign!
