    Authorities are offering a reward for information in the 1982 unsolved murder of a 40-year-old woman and physician's assistant found murdered in New York City -- the possible work of a serial killer.

    Patricia Shea was found strangled in Prospect Park, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, in July 1982, amid a string of similar cases that baffled the New York City Police Department at the time.

    Shea, 40, was last seen on July 25 of that year in the parking lot of her apartment complex on Beach 107th Street and Shore Front Parkway in Rockaway Park.

    She told friends at around 11 p.m. that she was going to check on an elderly patient who lived in an apartment building next to hers, according to reports at the time.

    Her body was found the next day in Prospect Park and police said she was strangled with nylon rope, according to a 1982 story in the New York Times.

    A man's shirt was found next to the body, which police said was being investigated as possible evidence. Police also said she was likely killed somewhere else and dumped in the Brooklyn park, according to the Times.
