AZ - Catherine Sposito, 23, Prescott, 13 June 1987
At 7 a.m. on Saturday, June 13, 1987, Sposito, 23, a Prescott College student, rode her mountain bike to the Thumb Butte trailhead west of Prescott and began hiking up the path when she was ambushed by one or maybe two people who brutally murdered her, then disappeared into the woods, said Yavapai Silent Witness Program Coordinator Steve Skurja.
Other hikers heard Sposito's screams for help, but couldn't get to her in time. Investigators still don't know why the suspect or suspects targeted and killed Sposito - a daughter, sister, friend to many, artist, and a local waitress, Skurja said.
The night before Sposito was killed, she went to dinner at a Prescott restaurant and told friends she planned on hiking Thumb Butte the next day, Diskin said.
