    WASHINGTON — She was found murdered 34 years ago this week. Now Virginia State Police and Loudoun County detectives are revisiting the investigation into who killed Veronica Hepworth.

    A driver found the 20-year-old woman’s partially clothed body on a cold February day in 1982. She was laying in a driveway along U.S. 50 near Gilbert’s Corner in Loudoun County, police say.


    Anyone with information about Hepworth or the unidentified individual in the photograph is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Fairfax Field Office at 703-376-1690 or the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-737-8487.

    Always give generously of yourself to support your beliefs. And when you're knocked down, give more.

    Investigators interviewed the owner of the bar and the bands that were playing at the bar at the time of her disappearance, even going to North Carolina to try and find one of the bouncers at the bar. He was already dead, and that lead evaporated.

    Eventually they identified a boyfriend, but that turned out to be another dead end. They are pursuing another boyfriend that they believe she dated for about three weeks before they broke up. According to law enforcement officials close to the case, he may have been the last person to see her alive, but he is not a suspect at this time.
    Canham and his partner, Detective Schochet, both came from major metropolitan police departments to their jobs as cold case detectives—Schochet from Nassau County, New York, where he worked for 28 years, and Canham from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, where he came to work in the Loudoun County’s newly created cold case division four days after retiring from the D.C. department. Their instincts about people and their motives are well-honed. “You have to first go back to the plate and wait for the next pitch,” Schochet says. “That is part of our job, but we keep sloshing through it.”
