    UT - Rosie Tapia, 6, murdered in Salt Lake City, 1995

    New information in the unsolved murder of a six year old girl is giving hope to police and her family.

    On August 13th, 1995, Rosie's mother went into her room and found the screen on the window ripped, and her daughter gone. Her body was later found in a canal, near her family's apartment. She had been sexually assaulted.

    Salt Lake police have worked countless leads since that day. Today, nine years later, they have one more.

    If your child disappears, pray for her safe return -- and then pray for a media blitz.

    It is a lesson few know better than Tamara and Richard Davis, whose daughter, Kiplyn, hasn't been seen for seven years. When the bubbly girl with the red bouncy hair disappeared from Spanish Fork High School, there were no reporters, no helicopters and no 6 o'clock updates. For that matter, there was barely an investigation -- at least initially.

    The article says DNA was not used 9 years ago

    When did they start using DNA analysis in murders?

    Around the time of OJ. This crime happened right around that time. I used to live there and am familiar with some details of the case. I believe the man is someone who has been suspected all along, but police had no conclusive evidence. Poor little Rosie. I hope justice will finally prevail for her.

    So was this sketch put out just recently? Does that mean that they never had one drawn up back when this first occurred? Please tell me they have not had this information for that long and not gotten it out there. I hope I'm reading this wrong.....

    Rosie’s mother, Lewine, said she does what she can to keep the case alive in the media and said she speaks with detectives on a regular basis—hoping to one day get justice for her daughter.

    “I want the public to know that I’m not giving up, I’m not giving up that hope that one day that person will come forward, or they will make the arrest of the person who took her,” she said. “…This way, when I leave, I can rejoice with Rosie that we found the person that took her. She can rest, and I can rest: so that’s my goal.”

    Lewine said she spoke with detectives Wednesday morning, and she said they told her they were doing a new round of interviews in connection with the case and had a few more still to do. She said they told her they would contact her if any new information comes to light.

    According to the article with the composite drawing, this man had medium length brown hair. That sketch clearly depicts a man with a very short hairstyle. That makes no sense!
