The Twisted Saga of Michelle Dee Gates Crimeatorium

    • True Crime

In 1980, Michele Dee Gates was 13 years old and living in Oregon when she was suspected of drowning a four year old girl named Ruth Anne O'Neil, known as Ruthie to her family and friends. Because Michele was Ruth Anne’s babysitter and she had taken her for ice cream that day, she was brought in for questioning alone on two separate occasions. Police confronted her on some inconsistent statements she had given, after which, she admitted to drowning little Ruth Anne. This is the twisted saga of Michele Dee Gates.
