    Case History
    The victim was found by a passing motorist at 10:20 on September 12, 1976, off the roadway in the 5600 block of Dogwood Road, in the Woodlawn section of Baltimore. This is just a short distance from Lorraine Park Cemetery.
    She had been murdered and raped.
    She had been wrapped in a sheet. Her hands were tied behind her back in perfect knots with some type of medical bandage.

    When police removed the sheet, the woman's head was covered with three different cloths. The first one was a yellow bag for a 25-pound sack of lawn seed. Printed on the bag was, "Farm Bureau Association Grass Seed, Lexington, Mass." The second cloth was a dark blue and white paisley bandana, and finally there was an orange and white bandana that had holes cut for the eyes and nose. All three clothes were tied behind the victim's neck in a square knot.
    The bag was manufactured at the Bemis Bag Company located in Buffalo, N.Y., and they were only sold in five Massachusetts locations: 158 Lexington Street in Waltham; Stafford Street in Rochdale; 307 Western Avenue in Lowell; 3 Hollis Street in South Weymouth; and East Deer Field Front Yards in Greenfield.

    It is believed she had been killed sometime within the previous 24 hours at another location, and her body was dumped where it was found.

    Detectives launched an extensive investigation at the time to find the killer.

    The young woman's fingerprints have been checked against the records of every state in the union, with no matches. No matches have been found for her dental records.

    Investigators have followed up on similar cases in other states as far away as Illinois and California. But they have found nothing.

    Still no answers but they did an anniversary article this past August.


    Six months before she disappeared, Labbe took off to live with a singer in a rock band in Pennsylvannia. About a month later, Labbe called Mixon and wanted to come home. He said she sometimes traveled with a "rough crowd."
    The Charley Project lists her as a shy teenager, which she may have been but I don't think a shy person would do the above.

    Note: The disappearance is listed as August 8th.
