    Feb 5, 2015

    BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) Beaufort County sheriff's deputies are seeking the public's help in solving two cold cases from 40 years ago.

    The sheriff's office said this week that deputies are still investigating the death of 50-year-old Dorothy Kay Olbert of Hilton Head Island.

    She was found dead outside her vehicle 40 years ago Wednesday near the back gate of a gated community. She died from a blow to the head.

    Dorothy Kay Olbert

    On 02-04-1975, Dorothy Kay Olbert (50-years-old) was reported missing by her husband around midnight after she failed to return to their Hilton Head Island residence from a church meeting. At approximately 12:45 am on 02-05-1975, she was discovered deceased lying outside her vehicle near the back gate of Shipyard Plantation. Forensic autopsy revealed she died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.

    Numerous interviews were conducted, as well as forensic examination of evidence collected at the scene but no suspects have been identified.

    The motive for her murder was not apparent, as she had no known enemies. The limited technology available in 1975, failed to forensically link anyone to the crime.
