    Whatever happened to 18-year old Cynthia Joan Gastelle is one of those whodunit cases Coady is handling. She was reported missing to the Takoma Park police in Maryland by her family on April 3, 1980. On February 12, 1982, Prince William police found skeletal remains on Bull Run Mountain off of Mountain Road in the Haymarket area.

    Investigators didn’t know who she was, where she came from or how she got to where she was found. “They had a possibility of how she died but it wasn’t a concrete sort of thing at the time, where it was enough to know it was murder,” Coady says...

    There is no evidence of the perpetrator in that case, though they do have a picture of a former boyfriend who they consider a person of interest.

    Possibly related cases...

    This case involves what would appear to be an abduction, murder, and transportation of the victim across state lines - from Maryland to Virginia.

    I wonder if this case might be related to some other similar abuction/murders of young girls which occurred in and arround the Virginia, DC, Maryland area around that same time frame. Here are a few:
