Nancy Bennallack was a 27 year old court reporter in Sacramento County. Nancy lived alone in an upstairs apartment at Arden Way and Bell Avenue. Nancy was last seen alive by her fianc� on 10-25-1970 at approximately 11:30p.m. When Nancy did not show up for work the following morning, Nancy's co-worker telephoned her son to check on Nancy. The friend's son went to the apartment manager for assistance and he used a pass key to unlock the front door. Nancy was found murdered in her apartment.

***Nancy Bennallack's murdered solved after 50 years

More than five decades after Nancy Bennallack was stabbed to death in her Sacramento County apartment bedroom, her cold case has been solved with the same technology used to solve the Golden State Killer's case, authorities said.

"Time is the justice that examines all offenders. Nancy was never forgotten," Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said while referring to the 51 years the case spanned.
The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office announced on Wednesday that Richard John Davis killed the then-28-year-old Bennallack in 1970. Davis had lived in the same apartment complex as Bennallack when he murdered her, authorities said. He died in 1997 from what investigators believe was related to alcoholism.
"Due to the fact that Richard Davis is deceased, sadly, there won't be any form of legal justice, but Linda and Tom, I hope this brings you, Nancy, and your family some peace," said retired homicide detective Micki Links, who started working on Bennallack's case in 2005
