Kelly Kay McGinniss[1] is a suspected victim of Gary Ridgway who went missing in 1983.


McGinniss, a known prostitute, and transient had booked a motel room in Des Moines, Washington. She had previously claimed she was "dating" Ridgway when she disappeared and was last seen in his vehicle near a baseball field.

In 2003, Ridgway led authorities to remains he stated belonged to McGinniss. They were identified as a different victim; Ridgway admittedly confused the pair based on body-type.
