The murder of 9-year-old Cynthia “Cindy” Allinger by Guy Matthew Rasmussen is featured in the latest episode of The Face Of Evil on Investigation Discovery.
At around 3:00 pm on July 4, 1996, Cindy told her mother, Rhonda Plank, she was going to visit a few of her friends at a house nearby, but she never made it. Plank reported Cindy missing around 11:00 pm and told 911 dispatch that Rasmussen might be involved as one of her neighbors told her that they saw Cindy holding hands with him.
Rasmussen was a convicted sex offender who used to live in their neighborhood until he moved to a trailer nearby. The children in the area called him Razz.
Two weeks later, the girl’s body was found inside a rolled-up carpet in a grassy area near her home in Lakewood, Washington, off 49th Avenue Southwest near 123rd Street Southwest.
Cindy’s remains were transported to the state medical examiner’s for an autopsy. The results concluded that she had been burned with cigarettes and suffered a blow to the face which resulted in a broken jaw. Cindy was then raped and strangled to death.
DNA evidence linked Rasmussen to Cindy’s murder. When investigators searched his trailer, they found clothing with Cindy’s DNA on it. He was then arrested and booked into the Pierce County jail, where he was given a lie detector test and failed.
Rasmussen was charged with aggravated murder, first-degree kidnapping, and child rape.
After a lengthy trial, a jury found Rasmussen guilty of murdering Cindy. They couldn’t come to a consensus on the death penalty; so, therefore, he was sentenced to life in prison.
The Face Of Evil — Root Of All Evil, airs at 10/9c of Investigation Discovery.
There are so many criminals with this last name Terry is one he’s a serial killer. Matthew is another one this guy’s middle name they’re probably all related what a horrible family.
Cannot believe he did these things to a little girl. Pretty disgusting hope he never gets out.
Should have given him the death penalty. But hopefully he was tossed into gen pop and is getting gang raped hourly. RIP Cindy.
Would love to have an update on the case or Devon & Damon Routier. Murdered by their evil mother, Darlie Lynn Routier.
B*tch, this story has nothing to do with those 2 dead boys, so f**k you, h*
B*tch she didn’t say they are related, she said she’d like an update on BOTH cases, so take you’re own advice and F**k You h**
How could they not vote for the death penalty for this evil, vile thing (won’t call him a human or a man)?
