Did you know Julia Critchfield? In 1978, the 36-year-old woman was found dead in a north Harrison County dirt pit.

Investigators say they're no closer to solving the cold case than those who worked on it more than 38 years ago...

What they do know is someone used their hands to strangle Critchfield. Her body was thrown off a cliff at an old dirt pit off U.S. 49 and Mississippi 67, a few miles south of Stone County. Evidence indicates she was sexually assaulted and killed somewhere else...

Critchfield had gone to Chris's Lounge on Courthouse Road in Gulfport on a Saturday night. She was last seen there about 10 or 10:15 p.m. Whatever happened in the next couple of hours led to her death.
