WI - Marilyn McIntyre, 18, brutally murdered, Columbus, 11 March 1980
In the last 24-hours, we revealed never-before released details about the death of Marilyn McIntrye.
Wednesday, investigators spent the day pouring over 27-years worth of evidence in Columbia County.
Tuesday night detectives were standing by live to take your calls as we asked for information about the murder of Marilyn McIntrye.
Wednesday, the Columbia County Sheriff's Department, Columbus Police Department and the state Department of Criminal Investigation met to discuss fresh leads in the case.
In March of 1980, 18-year-old Marilyn McIntyre was brutally murdered in her Columbus home. Her husband came home from work to find his wife beaten, strangled and stabbed. The only witness: her 3 month old son Christopher who is now 27-years old.
One year after her death, the McIntyre's home mysteriously burned down. Investigators believe evidence gathered at the time of her death could provide them with a DNA sample of the killer.

Catching Up: Old Columbus murder still under investigation
The murder of Columbus teenager Marilyn McIntyre in 1980 remains unsolved despite renewed police efforts in the past several months.
Columbia County Detective Lt. Wayne Smith, who reopened the cold case last year and had the young woman's body exhumed for testing in March, says the science of DNA testing has opened up new ways to test the evidence that was collected in 1980.

DNA evidence cracked a Columbia County "cold case," as an arrest was made in a homicide case nearly three decades old.
Marilyn McIntyre was a wife and mother of a 3-month-old son back in 1980 when investigators said her husband came home to find her dead on the living room floor -- beaten, stabbed and strangled.
Her son, Christopher McIntyre -- now 29 years old -- said the family always suspected close family friend Curtis Forbes...
...Fast forward 28 years. After requests from the family, investigators reopened the case and exhumed Marilyn's body. They said DNA evidence helped identify Forbes as a suspect. He had since moved back to Columbia County -- remarrying and raising two children -- and was arrested during a traffic stop this week."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James

From February 2011:
Curtis E. Forbes, 53, of Randolph, was sentenced in Columbia County Circuit Court on Wednesday to life in prison after being found guilty of first-degree murder at a trial in November...
Because Forbes is convicted for a crime committed in 1980, he will be eligible for parole June 23, 2020, according to Assistant Attorney General David Wambach.
