    NY - Sherri Orofino, 24, Bayside, Queens, 1 March 1987


    Police said that on March 1, 1987, Sherri Orofino was visiting a friend in Bayside, Queens, New York. She left Bayside after 3:00 a.m. for her residence in Millbrook, Dutchess County, driving a black 1987 Toyota MR-2.

    On March 3, 1987, the State Police were contacted by Sherri’s husband who stated that she hadn’t arrived home. During the course of the investigation, Troopers learned that Orofino’s abandoned vehicle was located... on Route 134 in the Town of Yorktown.

    At 60, Ronald Langer has put together an impressive second act — an attractive wife, three young sons and a state job.

    The job doesn't sit so well with some of those from his earlier life — when he was a disgraced Briarcliff Manor police sergeant sent to federal prison for violating the civil rights of women he illegally pulled over on the Taconic State Parkway.

    The constant in both acts? Langer remains the prime suspect in the 1987 death of Sherri Orofino, a Dutchess County woman whose decomposed body was found along the Croton Reservoir five months after she disappeared while driving home on the Taconic.

    Thnx OkieGranny,

    Ugh, can't believe this guy got a state job after his conviction. seriously. The injustice of it all.

    Very interesting case, you can see the original detective's frustration at not being able to resolve it.
