    Neat! I hope they get the information they are looking for. But I wonder how they found out someone was talking about her in the first place...

    I wonder what the conversation was really about? Let's face it, it only takes one nosey person (like all of us who read and post religiously hear at WS) to strike up a conversation about her. A group of people who all remember her getting a discussion going is not suspicious to me at all.

    Now, on the other hand, if the conversation had a sinister twist to - "She got what she deserved" type stuff - different scenario.

    I hate to say this, but I would look hard at the "popular, jock crowd" from her school.

    Hope they can resolve it!!

    A 40-year-old cold case murder of a Flushing teen in Bayside is being fired up anew by the NYPD.

    Police are asking the public’s help in solving the murder of Leslie Zaret, 17, whose body was found on the PS 203 playground on Springfield Boulevard in Bayside on Aug. 17, 1974. Her body had been stripped and the cause of death was strangulation. Leslie’s clothing, a blue blouse with a flower print, jeans and beige platform shoes, were in a pile nearby...

    Evidence showed that Zaret was not raped or had sex, but that she had been abused with a hairbrush. Police have partial DNA from the brush.

    wow--my old neighborhood!!!!!! I know where all these locations are-----they should focus on the bar---likely that is where she met the killer/s--------was it a cop hangout, firemen hangout, Local 3 electricians hangout, Queens college/St Johns Univ. or Queensboro hangout-----old mans drinking bar or even a highschool hangout-drinking age was 18 back then.

    another few thoughts as well-------what about the law schools close by---York and St Johns Law---possible
    and JIB Lanes on Parsons Blvd was very active and still is--maybe a bowling league -----and Fort Tryon I think is in Bayside as well---maybe some soldiers were out for a beer
    The outfit Leslie had on sounds very pretty----something to wear on a date--it may have been her real intention to meet her boyfriend-----where was he that night?????????

    Thinking outside the box.

    Were they able to decide the sex of the killer from the partial DNA?
    If they have not, there is a possibility the killer was a woman/women.

    Some issue over jealousy perhaps. On her way home from the bar, they mentioned she may had gotten into a car, could had been a car of women. The hairbrush, was it hers or not?...........Stripping her for humiliation and using the hairbrush for humiliation. Classmates, friends of classmates etc perhaps. The hairbrush was found where left, and the legiture used to strangle her was probably left at the scene also. The hairbrush left inside her when found was also for humiliation when she was found from reading.

    If the partial DNA proves to be male. Than all of the above can be deleted.

    It certainly seems it was someone she knew, as they say she wouldn't have gotten into a car late at night with a stranger. She was only a few blocks from her home. She wasn't old enough to drink. I wonder what they used as a lure to get her in the car?

    I'm pretty sure the drinking age was still 18 at that time.
