“`The son of Stephen King has turned detective in efforts to solve a cold-case murder. And it has a connection to the Steven Spielberg classic, Jaws. Joe Hill fleshed out this theory after watching the flick on the big screen in 2015.

“`The comic book and horror writer had only recently been reading about the Lady in the Dunes, an unknown woman found brutally murdered in the sandy dunes of Provincetown, Massachusetts in late July 1974, while Jaws was being filmed one hundred miles away in Martha’s Vineyard. The female extra in Jaws is almost a twin of the figure presented in a composite sketch of the victim.

“`Fifty-three minutes into the movie, a woman with a blue bandana over her auburn hair is seen briefly waiting to board a ferry in a non-frightening scene. The Lady in the Dunes was believed to be in her mid-20s to 30s when she was murdered in late June or early July. The naked woman’s hands were removed, preventing fingerprint identification.  Plus, her head, which suffered a fatal blow, was resting on jeans and a blue bandana. Hill has goosebumps when now watching the scene.

“`The theory is making the rounds on the internet. One added complication… the casting director for the film died in 2009. Local investigators are now pondering Hill’s speculative analysis.
