The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help to identify a 1979 murder victim.
The girl’s body was discovered in a field in Caledonia exactly 33 years ago tomorrow. She had been shot and left to die just off the highway in a cold, desolate cornfield. Over the past three decades, thousands upon thousands of leads have been developed, according to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office. But the girl’s body, nor her killer have ever been identified.
Sheriff John York and his agency say they have not given up the hope of someday identifying the young girl, whom medical examiners believed to have been between 13 and 19 years old. She had dark hair with blonde highlights and brown eyes. She was clad in a red windbreaker jacket, tan corduroy pants and a red plaid shirt. She was slight of build, approximately 5’3”, 120 Lbs., and appeared to have a fairly good tan, leading investigators to believe she may be from another region of the country.
Cold cases can be solved, the Sheriff says, but they continue to need the public’s help. If you have any information, contact the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office at 243-7100.
