Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
In December of 1971, Grissim left the foster home she and her younger sister lived at for Fort Vancouver High School and never came back. Jamie attended classes but never made it home. Jamie Grissim disappeared walking home from school December 7, 1971, a Tuesday, at around 1:30 to 2 p.m.
Six months after she disappeared, Jamie's identification was found by a neighbor picking up trash on Dole Valley Road in a
very remote part of northeast Clark County.
The bodies of two other women were later found nearby.
Detectives suspected Jamie was a victim of homicide, but they’ve never found her body.
It’s suspected that Jamie Grissim is the first victim of Warren Leslie Forrest, who is suspected of killing eight women in Clark County between March 1972 and October 1974. In the 1970s Forrest was convicted of murdering 19-year-old Krista Blake in the woods of Tukes Mountain just east of Battle Ground. He is serving a life sentence at the Washington Department of Corrections’ Monroe Complex.
