    "...The last time Cindy was seen was in the early hours of March 24, 1977. The 19-year-old was out with friends at a bar in Virginia, Minnesota. Around 12:30 a.m., a witness reportedly saw her looking for a ride home and mentioning that she may head out to hitchhike.

    Several hours later, her badly beaten body was discovered under a pile of brush off a logging road about eight miles north of Aurora, a nearly half hour drive away from the bar where she was last seen. According to St. Louis County officials, she had suffered multiple traumatic injuries to her head.

    Whoever killed Cindy is thought to have had knowledge of the area because of where her body was found, officials said..."

    Can anyone tell me if Joseph Ture had an alibi for the night Cindy Joy Elias was murdered? It fits his timeline in Minnesota for his murder spree

    40 Years Later, One of Minnesota’s Oldest Cold Cases Remains Unsolved

    "It's one of Minnesota's oldest cold cases; the murder of teen Cindy Joy Elias.

    And as of last week, her killer has been walking free for 40 years.

    "I would just like to know why she was killed," Judy Edwards, Cindy's sister, recently told local television station WDIO. "What made somebody think they could actually do something like that?"

    The last time Cindy was seen was in the early hours of March 24, 1977. The 19-year-old was out with friends at a bar in Virginia, Minnesota. Around 12:30 a.m., a witness reportedly saw her looking for a ride home and mentioning that she may head out to hitchhike.
