Interstate Highway 35 covers some 740 miles from Salina, Kansas, in the north, to Laredo, Texas, on the Mexican border. More than half the highway's length -- in excess of 420 miles -- runs north-to-south across the Lone Star State, past Gainesville, Denton, splitting to accommodate the twin giants of Dallas-Ft. Worth, reuniting above Hillsboro for the long run south, through Waco, Temple, Austin, San Antonio. Between 1976 and 1981 the Texas stretch of I-35 was the hunting ground for a killer (or killers) who preyed on hitchhikers, and motorists in trouble, claiming at least 22 victims in five years time.

Case History
The victim was located near Interstate 35 in a culvert outside of Georgetown, Texas. The culvert is located 9.4 miles south of the Williamson / Bell County line. The victim was killed by strangulation hours before her body was discovered.
Two matchbooks were found at the scene; one was from a Motel 6, the other from a Holiday Inn in Henryetta, Oklahoma. The only other evidence was determined to be a makeshift sanitary napkin, which was labeled among the evidence as a bloody towel.
The serial killer Henry Lee Lucas confessed to the victim's murder in 1982, three years after her death. He informed authorities that he picked her up while she was hitchhiking in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma the day before her murder in 1979. He claimed that her name may have been "Judy" or "Joanie." Lucas was convicted of her murder in 1984 and sentenced to death; he recanted his confession shortly thereafter. Texas Governor George W. Bush commuted Lucas' death sentence to life in prison shortly before his execution due to the doubt which emerged in this case.
Aside from Lucas' possible involvement in this case, authorities are searching for an anonymous female caller who phoned them on three separate occasions with information regarding this case. The caller claimed that she saw the victim hitchhiking near Georgetown, Texas the day of her murder.

GEORGETOWN — More than 30 years of waiting for resolution in the case of a 19-year-old who was kidnapped and killed along with his date in 1978 ended quickly Tuesday in a Williamson County courtroom. Benny Tijerina, 53, stood quietly in front of District Judge Burt Carnes and pleaded guilty in the shooting death of Frank Kevin Key. Carnes sentenced Tijerina to 40 years in prison for the murder conviction. Tijerina will serve that sentence concurrently with a 40-year sentence he received last week in McLennan County after he pleaded guilty to murder in the shooting death of Rita Salazar, who was Key's date.

But a break would not come until 2009, after Fort Worth police Detective Jose Hernandez requested tests on several items from the 1978 cold case, hoping modern science might finally yield a suspect’s DNA profile...

The identity of the mystery man would be revealed three months later when police were notified that a database of convicted offenders’ DNA profiles had matched the DNA profile to that of an inmate.

Robin Carter, who lived two streets down from the McGees and had been briefly questioned by police two months after her slaying, was now the prime suspect in the case.

And yet... still no arrest.
