Does anyone else remember this sad case of the girl brutally murdered in what seems to be a random attack four days after her 16th birthday?

It's the 20th anniversary today.

They did do a crime watch type off reconstruction but it never yielded anything.


I cant believe the murderer didn't leave any off his DNA at the crime scene.

Were they doing much in the way of DNA testing back then?

The first time that DNA was used to trace a murder suspect and to obtain a conviction was in 1987/88.
