Christine Cole left her house in Pawtucket on an errand to pick up milk from the corner store. She never made it home.

Her body was found on February 28, 1988 at Conimicut Point in Warwick where it had apparently washed ashore. Christine was murdered, though I can't seem to find anything further on the cause of death.

The thing that really gets me about this one, aside from it being unsolved and happening within walking distance of my best friend's house, is that Christine had just celebrated her 10th birthday two days before vanishing. Utterly heartbreaking.
