    I can't find the source of this information but here's what this article about cold cases in the area says about her disappearance:

    I wonder if this guy - Samuel W. Legg / Dr. No could be linked to this. Most of his victims seem to have been found in Ohio but the women were from other states in some cases. He was a long haul trucker which could explain how Terri Kay with no ties to NY ended up in NY. I hope they continue to look into all interstate killings around the country from the 80s and 90s to see if they can rule this guy in or out.

    Arrest in Medina County rape could be key to solving a web of cold cases

    The investigation has been unable to identify any ties the victim may have had to the northeastern United States.

    The New York State Police Troop G Major Crimes Unit and the BCI Unit at SP Saratoga have made a concentrated effort to solve this homicide and continue to ask for the public’s assistance.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Troop G at (518) 783-3211. Calls may be kept confidential."
