    NC - Darlene Tilly, 13, Durham, 14 October 1980

    I have heard about this young girl much of my life. I never realized that her case has never been solved. WRAL just did an update story on her.

    Facts I have found:
    -She lived in East Durham (Gorman community)
    -Her body was found near the railroad tracks off Old Oxford Highway
    -All articles I have read have alluded to the suspect being someone well respected in the community
    -WRAL has her last name spelled "Tilly" her mother's obituary has "Tilley"
    -She went to Liberty Christian School for elementary (according to friends on one of her memorial FB pages)
    -She may have attended Bible Baptist Church (Stated in Durham Herald Sept. 23, 1980)
    -She was an 8th grader at Chewning Middle School when she was abducted (per Durham Herald Sept. 23, 1980)


    Here is WRAL's current article- http://www.wral.com/nc-wanted-author...pect/15142263/

    I will see what other facts I can find to add here. I think I know from hearing about it where she went to school, but I wanted to confirm before I listed it as fact.

    I have her missing dates wrong. She went missing September, not November.
