    CA - Mary London, 17, Sacramento, 15 Jan 1981

    I just got this on my Facebook feed and didn't see a thread/post for her here, so thought I'd start one (apologies if I missed finding an existing one).



    Excerpts from the Sacramento Police Department's post https://www.facebook.com/Sacramento-...02396/?fref=nf

    "Today, January 15, 2016, marks the 35-year anniversary of the unsolved murder of 17-year-old Mary London.

    On January 14, 1981, Mary London, (pictured) a developmentally disabled student who attended Sacramento High School was reported missing after she failed to show up for a scheduled ride after school. She was last seen near the school at approximately 3:30 p.m.

    The next morning, (January 15, 1981) Mary’s body was discovered near San Juan Road and Airport Road with multiple stab wounds. To this day, the motive for the murder is unknown.

    Detectives are asking for the community’s help in identifying a friend of the victim by the name “Darrell.” He is described as a male black adult, who would now be approximately 57-58 years old. Darrell is not a suspect; however detectives would like to speak with him."

    Anyone with info call: (916) 808-5471, Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357), or text to 274637 (CRIMES).

    Thanks for the story link Steph54! I was trying to find one to something better than Facebook even though it was an LE Facebook page. It was on my local news feed very briefly but I couldn't find the story again. Finally did and it's not much different, but here's one more news story on it that includes video:

    Cold Case: Justice for Mary London

    http://fox40.com/2016/02/22/cold-cas...r-mary-london/

    After more than 35 years, Sacramento Police are reworking an old lead that could help solve the cold case murder of 17-year-old Mary London, a developmentally disabled student from Sacramento High School.

    But cold case detectives with Sacramento Police are giving the public more to go on. They want to speak with a person of interest named only in the file as Darrell. Investigators were never able to officially identify or question him, but he is believed to be a friend of London’s. He is described as a black man who would now be 57 to 58 years old.
