    FL - Julie Magliulo, 3, Pompano Beach, 8 June 1987

    Three-year-old Julie Magliulo was last seen by her mother playing in her front yard in Pompano Beach - about 35 miles north of Miami - on June 8, 1987. Despite a massive manhunt, no trace of Julie was found. The next year, her skeletal remains were found in western Broward County. She had been asphyxiated.

    Local Cold Cases Similar to Caylee Anthony

    Striking similarities between two unsolved Broward murders and the Caylee Anthony case stir painful memories


    By Ari Odzer

    Thursday, Jul 14, 2011 | Updated 8:36 PM EDT

    Dougherty was 5-years old in 1994 and lived in North Lauderdale. Magliulo was 3-years-old in 1987 and lived in Pompano Beach.

    Both were adorable little girls who disappeared right under their parents' noses, and were later found dead in remote areas.
    Lamberti said just as in the Caylee Anthony case, investigators focused on Julie's parents and Amanda's parents as suspects, but were never able to bring charges against them.
    It's a shame how many parents can murder their own children and never be brought to justice for that murder. Even more of a shame when those children's bodies are never found.

    cause of death

    I'm surprised they found out the cause of death due to the postmortem interval. How did they know she had been asphyxiated? Did they find the ligature or murder weapon by the body, or did they just assume asphyxiation was the most likely cause of death because they didn't find any signs of physical violence?

    Most likely her hyoid bone in the neck was broken.

    "The hyoid is the U-shaped bone of the neck that is fractured in one-third of all homicides by strangulation. . On this basis, postmortem detection of hyoid fracture is relevant to the diagnosis of strangulation."

    Makes me wonder about some of the really old disappearances or murder of children back in the 50's, 60's and before. Back then it was less common for police and or the public to focus on the parents.

    Sadly, thanks to so many publicized and tragic cases now, many of us have come to suspect the parents first.

    Of course, often they are completely innocent. It's just sad how our "conditioning" has cahnged over the years.

    A suspect has been known for a number of years but not enough evidence has been found to link him to both of these cases. However he is currently in prison for child rape of similar nature.
    As someone who lives in the area, many people have felt over the years that the police only considered someone in the family as the killer to the determent of the case. Its just a shame that the justice may never come because of this. http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/200...etectives-girl
