    Canada - Dana Bradley, 14, St John's, NL, 14 Dec 1981

    http://www.torontosun.com/2016/05/26...-old-cold-case

    New DNA evidence has provided a "breakthrough" in the 34-year-old unsolved murder of a teenage girl in Newfoundland and Labrador, say police.

    The brutal killing of 14-year-old Dana Bradley in 1981 launched one of the largest and most costly murder investigations in the province's history...

    Bradley was last seen entering a car while hitchhiking, according to witnesses.

    She was reported missing on Dec. 14, 1981 and her body was found four days later at Maddox Cove, a wooded area just south of St. John's.

    Her skull had been fractured by blows from a blunt object and she had been sexually assaulted.

    Police have used new DNA evidence in the Dana Bradley murder investigation to clear suspects in the case, including a man who was publicly accused by someone claiming to have witnessed the murder...

    Police are still receiving tips from members of the public on the murder case. A number of them came in late Thursday morning, as news of the new evidence broke.

    Found this article from last spring. This case seems to be pretty notorious in Newfoundland.

    This is a rather lengthy article with a good timeline:
