MURDER INC. EXCLUSIVE: Was Judy Nesbitt Murdered by the Original Night Stalker in 1980?
On November 26 1980, Judy Nesbitt was murdered on her boat at Marina Dunes in Newport Beach. She’d received a call at her home in Irvine that morning from someone who claimed he was interested in buying her boat. Judy was seen meeting the prospective buyer at the marina shortly before her murder. She was found bludgeoned and shot in the head aboard her boat, the Felicidad IV. Judy Nesbitt’s home in Irvine is only a mile and a half from the murder locations of both Manuela Witthuhn and Janelle Cruz. Five years after Judy’s murder, her husband’s home in Tustin was broken into by a burglar who stole a handgun and a television. As usual, no one has ever linked Judy’s murder to the Original Night Stalker, even though Manuela Witthuhn was murdered nearby in her Irvine home only two months later. Joseph DeAngelo later named his own boat Scary
