Circumstances of Discovery

The decedent's body was discovered in some bushes near 22 Nassau Drive about 11:30 p.m. on July 22, 1979. She had been stabbed 30 times with a small pocket or pen knife. She had been sexually assaulted and had bruises all over her body. According to her autopsy report, no alcohol or drugs were found in her system. She was described as "well dressed". Business cards printed with "Interpersonal Connection" were found in the woman's wallet. The cards had blanks where a person could hand print their name and phone number. Robbery is not believed to be a motive as there was money found in her wallet.

Investigators were able to trace the decedent back to a hotel in New Orleans.

The day prior to her death, a witness saw her knocking on doors at a New Orleans hotel. One of the cards found on her had the name of a male guest at the hotel. The man was located, and he reported the woman had come to his door and propositioned him for money, however he refused. He further stated the woman had told him she was from out of town. Law enforcement cleared the man as a suspect in this case.

Upon further investigation, no information was found on "Interpersonal Connection" or the validity of the company.
