    I have faith and optimism that her killer will be found and, if still alive, be held accountable and rot in prison. If he's already dead...well, we all know where he is.

    Was the cousin in the southwest? Or was it obtained from there by the cousin?
    That could explain some of the pollen results.

    Her cousin wasn't. I don't know where it was obtained by her cousin.

    I just recently learned she'd been identified! I saw her case years ago, and for some reason it stuck with me. I hope her killer is found. I'm so glad she has a name back and we got to see her as she was in life.

    Cold cases in Dayton, Ohio | Miami Valley Murder Mysteries on WHIO

    Investigators in Miami County are looking for clues in a case that's haunted them for years: the murder of "The Buckskin Girl." This young woman was given that name 37 years ago when her body was found in a ditch near Troy by a local farmer. She was wearing jeans, a sweater and a brown buckskin jacket with fringe. In April, the "DNA Doe Project" identified her as Marcia Sossoman King, 21, from North Little Rock, Arkansas. Now, investigators said they will zero in on who killed the young woman and why?

    "The person that did this should be nervous," said Chief Deputy Steve Lord of the Miami County Sheriff's Office.

    There is a lot of information in the segment on Marcia that we haven't seen before. Interviews with family members who share a bit of her personal life. Awesome to see this. Thank you to WHIO for this program.

    Short answer: DNA matching. The case is kind of complicated and there is very little information. This link might help you understand the case.

    Murder of Marcia King - Wikipedia

    Also I would suggest you to read all of the posts in this thread starting from post #2971 on page 149, including all of the linked articles that have been posted. I hope that will help your understanding of the case.
