GOLD BEACH, Ore. -- The sheriff's department has been looking for clues into a homicide investigation for almost 40 years.

They've even gone out of their way to help witnesses remember what happened better that day by using hypnosis.

Evelyn Moody was stabbed in the chest and had her throat slit with a carpet knife after she pulled into her garage coming home from work.

Police initially suspected her husband, but ruled him out because he was in a wheelchair.

Another suspect came up, but investigators couldn't find enough evidence to hold him for long.

Randy Ullom was cooking burgers on the patio across the street when Moody pulled in. Police questioned him on the spot, but he hadn't seen anything.

However, police came back around months later with a hypnotist asking Ullom to go under for a deeper look at the investigation.  

"As I answered her questions and so on, I said nah, I’m not hypnotized, and she said yes you are. I said well prove it to me then… so she said try to lift your left leg... it was like it was nailed down,” says Ullom.

Ullom didn't end up seeing anything in his hypnotized state, but says it brought out a degree of clarity as if he was standing there that day.

The Curry County Sheriff’s Office says they haven't been able to make progress on this case for years, but they hope anyone watching who might have seen something will speak up.
