Roxanne Ellis and Michelle Abdill, partners in a Medford, Oregon real estate agency, were murdered by Robert Acremant, supposedly because they refused to give him money during a hold up. Later Acremant admitted, however, that he killed the couple because he hated gays and bisexuals. According to Acremant, he had previously investigated the women's backgrounds. Through the county's public records showing their joint ownership of their business and home, he had concluded that they were lesbians and that "there was no man around." On December 4, 1995, Acremant made an appointment with Ellis to see a property at 11am, and held her hostage there. Around 5pm, some six hours later, he had Ellis call Abdill to come to the property to help "jump start her stalled car." The two women's bound and gagged bodies were found three days later with gun shot wounds to their heads.
