Justice for Lindsey Baum: Saturday event marks 20th birthday of murdered Washington girl
On what would have been Lindsey Baum's 20th birthday, family, friends and volunteers continue to hope for a break in her case.

It’s not the way anyone hoped to celebrate what would have been Lindsey Baum’s 20th birthday. But volunteers will spend Saturday morning, Baum’s birthday, walking in the parade of the McCleary Bear Festival.

In June 2009, Baum disappeared while walking home from a friend’s house in McCleary.

Last fall hunters found her remains west of Ellensburg. Police have not made an arrest in the case.

“She needs to be able to rest in peace,” said Michelle Ames.

Ames is one of several volunteers walking Saturday's parade.

Volunteers are also hosting a booth for Baum at the McCleary Bear Festival, selling tee-shirts and taking donations for keychains and bracelets to raise money for Baum’s upcoming memorial service

The goal is to raise $3,000 to place a bench next to a tree planted in Baum’s memory.

It will be in the shape of a butterfly, something Lindsey loved.

Mother, community remember Lindsey Baum on what would’ve been the murdered girl’s 20th Birthday
Posted 5:18 PM, July 7, 2018, by Nadia Romero, Updated at 04:05AM, July 9, 2018

MCCLEARY, Wash. -- Lindsey Baum was 10-year-old when she was abducted from McCleary in 2009.  On Saturday, her mother and volunteers marked what would have been her 20th birthday to make sure no one will ever forget her name.

The annual McCleary Bear Festival is a bittersweet celebration in memory of Lindsey Baum.

In fall 2017, hunters found human remains in the Manastash Recreation Area.

In May, the FBI confirmed it was Lindsey Baum’s remains that hunters found.

“Lindsey’s been found, but my battle is not over. Whoever murdered her is still on the streets and probably still walks the streets of McCleary,” said Lindsey Baum’s mother Melissa Baum.

Celebration of life to be held for Lindsey Baum, missing girl whose remains were found last year
By Danielle Derrickson
August 16, 2018 12:02 PM 
Updated 3 hours 8 minutes ago 

More than nine years after she disappeared, the life of Lindsey Baum will be honored at a service this weekend in Olympia.

Lindsey went missing near her home in McCleary on June 26, 2009. Her remains were found by hunters last fall in Kittitas County, although the remains were not identified as Baum until May.

On Saturday, Evergreen Christian Community in Olympia will hold a celebration of life for her from 1-4 p.m. It will begin with a service, followed by a dove and butterfly release and reception. All are welcome to attend.
 
Evergreen Christian Community is located at 1000 Black Lake Boulevard in west Olympia. The service also will be live streamed with a link on the Justice for Lindsey Baum Facebook page.

‘We love you, Lindsey’: Family, friends remember McCleary girl who disappeared in 2009
August 18, 2018 04:45 PM 
Updated August 18, 2018 05:50 PM

Tables in the church foyer were lined with photos of Lindsey Baum, from when she was a baby up to age 10. There she was in a cowboy hat, in her soccer team uniform, on the playground, with a toy guitar.

Also on display were some of her stuffed animals, her journals, a Valentine’s Day card she made her mom, a copy of “Breaking Dawn” with the cover missing.

Among the mementos of a young girl’s life was a grim reminder: a copy of the People magazine issue from fall 2009 with Lindsey, who’d gone missing, on the cover.
 
Lindsey’s mom, Melissa Pierpoint-Baum, said she is comforted knowing Lindsey is in heaven with Pierpoint-Baum’s mother, who died the year before Lindsey was born.

“I only take comfort in knowing that she’s with my mother, who she never had the chance to meet,” she said. “They shared a love of chocolate, so I just keep telling myself they’re having parties every night eating triple-chocolate fudge sundaes.”

Search for answers continues in Lindsey Baum case 
By Samira George staff writer 
Jan 8, 2019
 
The hunter who had found a piece of Lindsey’s skull had been hunting that area for over 30-plus years, and had even passed the skull fragment a few years before, but had failed to further examine it.

Rose Winquist, a Seattle-based private investigator working for the Baum family, thinks it’s a solvable case.

“There’s a connection we just need to find it,” Winquist said.

Winquist believes that people who are familiar with the surrounding area are going to be essential in making new strides in the case.

Since Manastash is a popular recreation area Winquist hopes this spring and summer will lead to possible new evidence that will strengthen Lindsey’s case. Winquist encourages people to keep an eye out for anything that might look suspicious.

Winquist warns it’s important that if anything is found to not touch or disturb it and contact law enforcement right away.

“If we can find the rest of her remains that could be a huge break,” Winquist said. “With those remains there could be a trace of DNA that was left either on Lindsey’s clothing, soles of her shoes, or even a button can have finger prints on it.”

Lindsey had on a bathing suit underneath her clothing the day she was kidnapped and although it has been nine years since her disappearance certain articles of clothing could have survived. Even more so if she was wrapped in a blanket.

Winquist doesn’t believe whoever decided to leave Lindsey’s body in the Manastash area wasn’t by happenstance, but rather her killer knew the area.

Melissa Baum is asking for surrounding communities to help in efforts of locating the rest of her daughter’s remains and is offering a $35,000 reward. She also hopes Kittitas County Search and Rescue might also lend a hand in search efforts this summer.

10 years later, detectives still search for answers in Lindsey Baum case
by Keith Eldridge | KOMO News|
Tuesday, June 25th 2019

MCCLEARY, Wash. -- This is a grim anniversary week for the town of McCleary, where 10 years ago Lindsey Baum vanished on the way home from a friend's house.

A new remembrance garden including a butterfly bench and plaque will be dedicated at a candlelight vigil at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Could DNA help as it has in other cold cases such as Jennifer Bastian and Michella Welch in Tacoma?

We always hope that that's the case, but at this point that's not shaping up to be, but that's something we're continuing to look at," said Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott. He said since it is an open murder investigation he can't reveal what if any DNA was collected.

The hope continues to be that someone comes forward with new information.

"That's pretty much the only hope we have is hopefully by keeping her name out there that someone will come forward with some kind of information," said family friend Michelle Ames. "Because you never know how small the detail that's needed."

Lindsey's mother Melissa will be there to talk with the crowd.

The sheriff and detectives will be there to answer any questions and talk with people.

"We're always hoping that we're going to get that one piece of information that is going to break it all down," Scott said.
 
The sheriff did say that the cold case units with the state Attorney General's office, FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children are being asked to review their case. And a new database of all of the records and files are being put into digital form to make it easier and quicker to search.

Family fights to keep 10-year-old girl’s unsolved murder banners up

By: Shelby Miller, KIRO 7 News
Updated: August 25, 2020 - 4:36 PM

McCleary, Wash. — Bold red letters and the smiling face of a 10-year-old girl catch people's attention every time they pass by.

The banners are constant reminders that Lindsey Baum’s murder case still hasn’t been solved.

“I don’t understand why everybody is not outraged that there is still a child murderer on the loose,” said Melissa Baum, Lindsey’s mother.

Melissa has been searching for the person who abducted her little girl more than 11 years ago, but that’s not her only battle. These days, she’s fighting with the City of McCleary to keep the signs up.

“I don’t know how much louder I have to scream that I’m not going anywhere and neither are my banners,” said Melissa.

Melissa said city workers took down the banner at the police department and at the park near Lindsey’s memorial garden; for now, that one is back up.

In a statement to KIRO 7, Mayor Brenda Orffer said:

“Council members have been asked by some if the banner could be removed from the park as it is where children go to play. When it was placed there without approval, we did not immediately remove it because we do want to see justice for Lindsey. When concerns were shared and the request to remove it was made, we attempted to find out who had placed the banner at the park so we could make a plan together. When we could not determine who or what organization had placed it there, council members asked that it be removed in response to concerns that had been shared with them.”

“They can complain all they want, where’s my justice, where’s the outrage for my murdered 10-year-old,” said Melissa.

“We apologize if anyone is offended by the signs, but we’re offended by the fact that there’s still a killer walking the streets that is responsible for murdering Lindsey Baum,” said Angela, a Justice for Lindsey volunteer.

The city may be taking down banners, but others are hanging them up. Volunteers are printing 20 yard banners and 50 campaign signs to put around town.

“If the city doesn’t want to keep them up, then the people of McCleary are going to ensure they stay up until we find Lindsey’s killer,” said Angela.

Melissa said Lindsey deserves to have the banners up.

“My daughter existed, she was real, she played on that playground, she walked those streets, she had a right to be safe. She was stolen, she was murdered and she was dumped like trash. And I’m not going to let them forget that. I’m not going to let anyone forget that until her monsters are behind bars or dead,” said Melissa.

Arrest made in 2003 kidnapping, rape in McCleary could be tied to 2009 murder of 10-year-old Lindsey Baum
By Q13 News Staff
Published 9 hours ago Updated 5 hours ago
Grays Harbor County Q13 FOX

ENUMCLAW, Wash. - A man arrested this week for a cold case kidnapping and rape in Grays Harbor County, Washington, could be tied to the 2009 disappearance and murder of 10-year-old Lindsey Baum in the same town.

According to the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office, deputies arrested Paul Bieker of Enumclaw Tuesday in connection to a 2003 kidnapping and rape that started on Church Road in McCleary.

Investigators say a 17-year-old girl was kidnapped in March 2003 when she returned home in her vehicle. Bieker reportedly tied her up and loaded her into her own vehicle, then took her to an undisclosed location and sexually assaulted her. He then drove her somewhere near McCleary and left her in her car, police say. She was able to free herself and get home.

DNA was collected at the hospital, but investigators were not able to find a match in the nationwide criminal database. Seven years later, the Grays Harbor Prosecuting Attorney’s Office obtained an arrest warrant for an unknown person, based on the DNA profile developed.

In December of 2020, Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office Chief Darrin Wallace submitted the DNA evidence to a laboratory for genealogy testing, detectives say.

The testing revealed a short list of possible suspects that were believed to be related to the source of the suspect DNA.

Investigators believe Bieker lived in McCleary in 2003 at a home not far from the victim’s residence.

They also were able to identify more circumstantial evidence that linked him to the crime, and investigators were able to match Bieker's DNA from a discarded item to the DNA collected in 2003.

Bieker appeared in court Wednesday. A judge set his bail at $250,000.

Detectives are examining whether Bieker is the same person who kidnapped and killed 10-year-old Lindsey Baum, who went missing in McCleary in 2009.

The only major break in her disappearance came in 2017, when a fragment of her skull was found by hunters in a remote area of Kittitas County.

"There are some eerie similarities between the two cases," Grays County Undersheriff Brad Johansson says. "How many kidnappers do you have in the same small town? However, they could end up being completely unrelated."

Anyone with information can call the Lindsey Baum tip line 360-964-1799 or email baumtips@co.grays-harbor.wa.us.

Historic David F. Byles House

On June 26th, 2009, 10 year-old Lindsey Baum was walking home in McCleary and vanished.  In 2018, her remains were discovered near Ellensburg.  Her murder remains unsolved. Her birthday is on July 7th.  She would have been 23 this year.  In a show of support for Lindsey’s family and to bring awareness to Lindsey’s unsolved murder, the house will be illuminated in red, Lindsey’s favorite color, from June 26th to July 7th.  This will continue annually until Lindsey’s murder is solved and justice is served.  There’s still a reward available.  For more information, go to Justice For Lindsey Baum.
