From Unsolved Mysteries Wikia:
Real Name: Michael Johnston and Rochelle Robison
Nicknames: No known nicknames
Location: Tacoma, Washington
Date: June 27, 1994
Details: Michael Johnston and Rochelle Robinson were two friends who had a secret relationship. They shared an evening in June 1994 playing "Magic: The Gathering," a fantasy game, but six hours after it, they were found dead. Police believed that the motive was jealousy over a love affair. He was found dead near her car on a quiet road near a popular shooting range named the Tacoma Sportmans Club; he had been shot in the head and his throat cut. She was found on a remote road five miles away; she had been slashed across the throat and stabbed several times. She was wearing his t-shirt inside out.
Police believe they were discovered during a romantic tryst. He was briefly handcuffed and shot as the killer abducted her. A friend of hers came forward with the fact that she believed she was being stalked and that person might have killed them both. His wife hired a private investigator and passed a polygraph test to determine her culpability in the case. The investigator suggested that they may have been murdered due to his involvement in fantasy games, black magic, and the occult. The investigator soon turned to psychic Nancy Myer. She postulated that three people were involved in the murders and that they were connected to his fascination with the occult and fantasy games. She believes that the killer and the two accomplices had come upon the two lovers in the car and stabbed Rochelle. They then drove him to the Sportsman's Club where they proceeded to kill him. The police, however, believe the killer is among her friends and associates and has nothing to do with the occult. The double murder remains unsolved.
Suspects: Three composites were made of the killer and his two accomplices by Nancy Myer. He was in his 30s while his accomplices were much younger. It is unknown if they are the actual killers.
Extra Notes: This first aired on the March 15, 1996 episode.
