    After 32 years, the murder of three young men remains unsolved, but not forgotten.

    On February 4th, 1979, Tracy Anderson, Billy Baumgartner and Michael Olson were working at the then, Payless Super Drug Store in San Mateo, when they  were executed during an after-hours robbery.

    Over the years the San Mateo PD has spent thousands of hours reviewing evidence and keeping the families of the victims in the loop as the investigation continued.

    Now, on the anniversary of the murders, SMPD say they have gained new leads. The department however, is not at liberty to disclose what this new evidence is, however they want the families and community to know they won't rest until the perpetrator(s) are brought to justice.

    There remains a $75,000 reward (which includes a $50,000 reward issued by the Governor’s Office) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this heinous crime.
