    State Police hope for break in old homicide

    In the late '80s, the remains of at least six young women had been dumped beside back roads along Interstate 91 in a stretch that straddled Vermont and New Hampshire. A killer had slit throats and stabbed victims repeatedly in the lower abdomen.

    The cases came to be known as the Connecticut River Valley slayings.

    A cold case heats up

    Twenty-one years later, the investigation remains open. Detective Lt. William Jenkins, at the state police barracks in Rockingham, has been in charge of the investigation since last winter. He inherited stacks and stacks of police documents and evidence.
    "We definitely remain hopeful that someday we can solve it," Jenkins said.

    Lynda Moore was found dead by her husband at their home on Route 121 after he arrived home from work. Word of her death spread quickly in the town and a day later people worriedly locked their doors, kept a closer eye on their children and followed the news reports closely.

    Staff Report

    Vermont State Police Detective Sgt William Jenkins released a statement Friday to draw attention to the anniversary and make a public appeal for help.

    "Despite the time that has passed, it is likely that someone in the public has information that would lead us to Lynda Moore's killer," Jenkins wrote in the release. "That person may think the information is insignificant, or they may have been afraid to come forward for any number of reasons. We urge anyone with information to come forward and talk to us."

    In "Shadow of Death," the author identifies a local boy, a marine home on leave and later discharged for emotional disturbances, who fell under suspicion for this murder. Since he uses a pseudonym, it's kind of difficult to track what happened to him after the case went cold but he definitely sounded like a promising lead. Does anyone know more about this?

    In addition to the disturbed young marine, there was another POI in the Lynda Moore murder, a local man who claimed to have psychic abilities and "saw" the crime happen. There was a similar figure who popped up in the Heidi Martin case. Does anyone know if these two men are the same person?
