Joseph Michael Nissensohn – Repeat Sex Offender charged with 1989 Murder

A murder convict awaiting a hearing in Tacoma on a move to commit him indefinitely as a sexual predator has been charged with murder in California. Investigators in other jurisdictions also are looking at killings that may involve 57-year-old Joseph Michael Nissensohn. He was convicted of second-degree murder in a stabbing in 1991 in Tillicum and recently completed his sentence, but he remains in custody pending a custody hearing later Thursday. On January 29th, the district attorney’s office in El Dorado County, California, filed a murder charge against Nissensohn. He’s charged with killing 15-year-old Kathy Graves, who vanished from her home in South Lake Tahoe in 1989. Nissensohn also is under investigation for the killing of 2 girls, ages 13 and 14, whose remains were found near Seaside, California, in 1981. In court filings his ex-wife is quoted as saying he also was involved in two killings in Oklahoma and one in Nevada.
