first things first.
You have already started a file on your mom J4Sharon. So it will need to include:
1. Her vitals from documents.
(A) Birth Certificate won't hurt
(B) Social Security number
(C) Death Certificate (out of these three you really need a copy of this) And any autopsy reports if they can be located.
2. Any articles published in local newspapers at the time the discovery of her murder and any published thereafter (if any) following up on the crime.
3. Your Birth Certificate (nice to have within her dossier that you are creating as well as a marriage certificate for her if you have the time, these can wait).
You will need to keep a log. You can keep it on a thumbdrive (in case of a computer failure you won't lose the info) or you can keep it written in a notepad.
Make sure every time you contact someone to ask about your Mom (whether it be reporter, Law enforcement, private citizen...etc) you notate the following.
1. The date and time you spoke to that person.
2. Very important---that persons name (and if LE their rank and such)
3. The questions you asked and the responses they gave you.
4. Within this file make sure you save a copy or print out and keep all emails you send and all emails you receive as responses to those emails.
This will be your dossier on your Mom. As you find new bits of info you will be able to access it and also show it to any investigator that would offer to look into her murder.
I'm concerned that detective's notes and other police information may or may not still be available at this time. The reason being is just plain human error or computer error or if filed on paper flood damage, fire damage...etc. to those papers in her case file.
It is not at all unusual to find this has happened in crimes that are decades old. It just happens.
You will need to create this file and then move forward from there. Hope that helps.

This is probably going to take a while but you're in this for the long haul. You've waited over 30 years for answers, eventually you will find them. It will just take time. Go step by step. Gathering as much info as you can find about her, yourself and any spouses or significant others she may have had prior to her murder.
This is actually 2-fold Justice4Sharon. One is to compile information and create a working file for your Mother's murder.
The other, I think you will find, is that you are going to find your Mom in those documents. You will have something of her to have and to hold.
We will be here to give you emotional support and to provide advice or let you know where we think you might be able to find the advice you need.
Again, welcome to the websleuth family.

There are sites online where you can post as much as you know about yourself and your family and people can leave messages or something like that. Maybe somebody is looking for you as well, never know. I don't know much about those sites but I am sure someone here does. I know we have a nice lady that specializes in the genealogy stuff and she is great at it. I'll have to see if I can find her for you tomorrow.

Good morning Justice4Sharon! You are getting some GREAT advice!
Do you already have Sharon's SSN? If not, I found it in the Social Security Death Index and can PM it to you. Let me know.

I found this but know nothing about it.
I am not sure how this works if the birth parent is deceased.
I don't know if other relatives of the birth mother can register there or if it is only the mothers and their children.
