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."The cure for anything is salt water- sweat, tears, or the sea." -Isak Dinensen
