    MD - Stacy Hoffmaster, 15, Frederick, 1 October 1996


    The murder of Stacy Hoffmaster, 15, is one of the biggest unsolved cases by the Frederick Police Department. But with a new detective on the case, officials are hopeful they can finally catch Stacy's killer or killers.

    "Right now it's just going to be a matter of following up on the original investigation, to basically start over, start fresh," said Det. Kevin Forrest, the now lead investigator on the Hoffmaster murder case.

    Stacy went missing in October of 1996 - one month shy of celebrating her sweet sixteen. Police reports indicate her body was found nearly three months later in a wooded area near E. South Street, just two days before Christmas.

    The student's partially decomposed body was found by two men looking for cans the morning of Dec. 23 under a tarp in a wooded area behind the Southern States building.

    The man who found the body said the young woman was nude and bound at the legs with rope. The area where the body was found is frequented by homeless people, police said.

    FREDERICK, Md. -- Frederick police are announcing an arrest in the 1996 slaying of a 15-year-old girl.

    Frederick Police Department Lt. Clark Pennington said Monday that 52-year-old Lloyd Harris was arrested last week in Kansas City, Missouri, in the death of Stacy Lynn Hoffmaster.

    Pennington says a Frederick County grand jury indicted Harris Jan. 22 on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree rape and third-degree sex offense.
    Police believe Harris and Hoffmaster knew each other, the station reports. Harris reportedly lived in the woods near where the girl's body was found.

    One woman, who describes herself as Hoffmaster's childhood "best friend," writes in a message to PEOPLE that Hoffmaster's family is requesting privacy.

    "We are pleased to see an arrest as it was a long wait. It's just the beginning; it won't be enough till [Harris] is sent to prison for the rest of his life," she wrote. "He has spent the last 20 years living, we have spent them just trying to live without her. She was a beautiful soul."
