    I started this thread because I am particularly interested in old cases involving teens and early 20's victims.

    Ms Suzanne: I doubt that this is your sister, but you might want to make sure she can be officially ruled out anyway. The timeline is about right, and she fits the parameters.

    The playboy bunny logo caught my attention, and reminded me of Debra Cressotti. (though I also doubt that this is Debra, as she was a bit older than the age parameters, and there is no reason to place her in Detroit following her Date LKA)

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3100dfma.html

    From what I understand, her husband was involved in strip clubs. A newspaper article about her breeding of Shar Pei dogs included a bit about a Weimeraner named Blaze who is shown with a vest with a Playboy bunny logo embroidered on it.

    In 1985, Walmart used to sell panties with the playboy bunny logo on them. I was in college and I remember buying them (do not ask me why I remember this but I can see them in my head).

    Alot of my friends also had these since they were pretty inexpensive and Walmart was about the only place in town to buy underwear.

    So I figure that it was less about any association with the Playboy franchise and more about cheap Walmart underwear...

    Wow Carl didn't even notice this case yet plus lost my internet for a minute. Id like to say you are dealing with a crippled police department in my town (BANKRUPT) and so DNA is not likely unless done by Michigan State Police Crime Lab. At this time the Chambers Brothers had that side of town on lockdown in the crack epidemic. My best guess is maybe drugs, Prostitution, possibly. The area where she was found is still bad and was not much better if not worse in 1985 or before. I hate to go that route and hope I am wrong, but I've lived here my whole life and a lot of nice girls are not found like this. Unless put there by real bad people, but mostly they put themselves there.

    This creeps me out. Maybe ten years ago, I was pulling out some hideous wood paneling behind a built-in bookshelf.

    Behind the panelling, wedged between the 2x4s, I found some crumpled-up Playboys, and got REALLY freaked out, thinking I'd stumbled across a serial killer's stash or something. (I mean, WHY bother to hide something like this??) Got my mom and sister to come watch as I unwrapped them.

    Turns out they were Playboy CATALOGS, from the same time period as this thread's murders (mid to late 1980s).

    Ripped out pictures from yet more Playboy catalogs were placed in between the whole catalogs' pages. And that's not all! Whoever had stashed these behind the panelling had LOVINGLY, CAREFULLY added phalluses to maybe two dozen models (OVER their clothes!), using white-out and ball-point pen.

    It was the freakiest thing I have ever found in all my home-repairs. I hope it was just the work of a frustrated teenager, one who got better and did NOT go on to murder and/or rape anyone.

    Ugh. Creepy creepy creepy. I can NEVER look at Playboy merchandise the same way again. Before it was just TACKY to me; but NOW it brings back that sick feeling I felt when I pulled those catalogs out of the dust.
