Valerie Lynn Vilson was from St. Louis, Missouri. There, she received
a B.A. in Acting from Webster College. Upon graduation, in 1991, she moved
to Oxford, Mississippi, to pursue graduate studies in acting. At the University
of Mississippi Ms. Vilson performed leading roles in "Blithe Spirit,"
and "Lips Together, Teeth Apart", both directed by Professor Cindy Gold,
as well as "The Water Engine," and "The Seagull." The head of the Theatre
Department, Jim Shollenberger, described her as, "One of our brightest
stars. She had talent, energy, and ambition"
Valerie Vilson expected to graduate this May, with an MFA. Upon graduation,
she was to take a long trip with her boyfriend, Greg Giblini. The victim's
relationship with Mr. Giblini showed no history of trouble. By all accounts,
they were very happy together. At the time of the murder officials were
unable to locate Mr. Giblini.
In the VCR there was a video tape marked New
Stage-Jackson. According to Lisa Wood, a friend of the victim, Ms.
Vilson intended to accept an internship at this mid-sized theatre located
in Jackson, Mississippi. Another tape marked Class Projects was on top
of the VCR. A check of the victim's transcripts show that she has taken
several film classes.
