SPIDER GAINES PERHAPS THE BEST ATHLETE TO HAIL OUT OF RICHMOND CALIFORNIA WAS FACING A DOUBLE HOMICIDE IN SEATTLE -- Improved DNA technology has put an 18-year-old cold case double-murder back into "active status," and we have some incredibly unique undercover videotape to prove it. In January 1990, a neighbor found Seattle attorneys E...ric Hoyer and Steve Dorobis shot dead inside a house they shared in South Park. Investigative Reporter Chris Halsne discovered King County detectives are currently questioning a former University of Washington football star regarding the killings. Halsne said, "Our investigative unit has been retracing every aspect of this crime for nearly two years. One famous name keeps popping up: Robert "Spider" Gaines. He was a wildly popular receiver at the UW in the mid-1970s. Gaines denies there is any evidence that links him to this crime. We tracked down an old roommate of his who is telling a different story." Spider Gaines' speed and strong hands made him a star in purple and gold. Whether it be hauling in long touchdown passes from now Hall-of-Fame quarterback Warren Moon or grabbing big catches in the '78 Rose Bowl on national TV, Gaines was always the center of attention.
