Myrna Opsahl

Myrna Opsahl was a church worker and murder victim of the notorious Symbionese Liberation Army. She died April 21, 1975 during a Carmichael, California bank robbery. Newspaper heiress and kidnapping/brainwashing victim Patty Hearst was the driver of the getaway car during this robbery.

Her death led to a lengthy campaign for justice, which finally in 2002 led to the arrest of Emily Harris, William Harris, Kathleen Soliah, Michael Bortin, and James Kilgore for the murder. Emily Harris admitted to firing the fatal shotgun blast, but claimed it was an accident.
