Notorious crime with ties to Bend

A story in the Eugene Register-Guard, talks about how the daughter of child-killer Diane Downs, was adopted by a Bend couple and still lives here.

Downs was pregnant with Rebecca Christine Babcock during Downs' trial in 1984.

Babcock has lived a troubled life. She became a teen mother when she was 17. She's single and going to college here. She was on ABC's "20/20" last Friday and is featured in the current issue of Glamour magazine of all places. She's trying to peddle her story for a book because it looks as if there is a big following for that sort of thing.

In 1983, Downs was a single mother of three when she shot them on a rural road in Lane County. One died, while two survived with serious injuries.
