MO - Carolyn Williams, stabbed in her home, Columbia, 1989
Missouri Cops Ask College Students to Help Solve Murder Mystery
Friday, July 03, 2009
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Columbia police are hopeful that DNA evidence and help from some college students may lead to a break in a 20-year-old murder mystery.
Carolyn Williams was stabbed to death in her Columbia home on Jan. 2, 1989. Police believe the murder was drug-related.
Tips have come in — the latest in 2005 — but none has panned out, Detective John Short said.
The case is getting new attention after students in Columbia College's Cold Case Homicide class chose to focus on it during the last semester. The elective class for students pursuing forensic science and criminal justice careers is taught by retired Columbia police Detective Mike Himmel.

Win-Win situation. Students get a chance to put their skills to work in a live environment and LE gets 6 new sets of eyes to review evidence! I hope this happens at every college with this type of curriculum, think of all the cold cases which could potentially be resolved. Analytical, please keep us updated
Hope the perp's DNA is in the database!!!!
