  • Details of Disappearance
    Aughe was last seen on April 25, 1987. She was seen with Darren D. O'Neall leaving La Paloma Restaurant on April 25 during the early morning hours. A search of Aughe's apartment revealed signs of a struggle, pools of blood, and blood soaked bed sheets and linen.

    O'Neall was sentenced to 27 years and nine months in prison for the murder of a South King County woman. He was also sentenced for stealing Aughe's car.
