    AZ - Pamela Pitts, 19, Prescott, 16 September 1988


    Pitts was 19 when she was found dead at Gordo's Pit, now called Alto Pit, in September 1988. She is presumed to have been at a party on Sept. 16 at the pit, a popular spot for underage drinking. Her burned remains were found there two weeks after her death...

    The law enforcement task force that investigated the crime found that "several people were present at the time of death and at the time the body was burned," a Yavapai County sheriff's lieutenant said in October 1988...

    One woman who was briefly considered a suspect at the time of Pitts' death, Shelly M. Norgard, was later put under scrutiny again after she was arrested a couple of years later for the murder of her boyfriend. Norgard, who was 22, was one of Pitts' two roommates in 1988...

    Police also investigated Melinda L. Perry, 19 at the time, who they said was in a violent physical fight with Pitts the night before she died, a fight in which witnesses said Pitts was beaten unconscious.
