On March 31, 1980, around 7 pm, Don Martinson arrived home from jury duty and called out to his wife Debbie, but he didn’t hear a reply. Don continued to walk through the house and made his way to their 15-month-old son’s room. He was alone, crying in his crib.
Don picked up his son and walked into the adjoining primary bedroom. There, he discovered Debbie’s body near the foot of their bed. She had been strangled with a macrame cord that was still around her neck. Near Debbie’s body was a message written in pale rose lipstick on a floor-to-ceiling mirror that read, “Now we are even Don”.
It was quickly dubbed the Lipstick Murder. It remains unsolved to this day.
Anyone with information about Debbie’s case is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (877) 373-TIPS (8477)
