    There not releasing anything about this case. They truly are waiting for someone to call in that one tip that breaks the case wide open. After 25 years, a quarter of century later, they should go ahead and just open up the files and lets see whats inside. Unfortunately, we know that's not going to happen either....This case is so cold, you could get your tongue attached to the case file.

    The perp is probably dead. Due to the life they lived.

    But this has neighbor written all over it.

    There can be only so many people who knew she won at bingo. If "someone" was targeting bingo winners, then the police should've talked to people until they got that name.

    Not sure if you're very familiar with Lancaster, PA but it's a smaller city and I agree that this case has neighbor written all over it. The homes in the 500 block of Duke St. are all row homes, a large number are in close proximity to each other and she might have mentioned to one of her neighbors that she had won at bingo.

    I also agree that whoever did this is probably dead, mostly people steal to support a drug habit and habitual drug users certainly don't live long lives.

    Even if she did not say one word of her bingo winnings, another person there might have mentioned it. Were winners' names posted anywhere?

    Also, did she perhaps stop on her way home to buy something special? Could be anything. It doesn't have to even be expensive... just something she didn't always buy.

    eta
    for some reason a cake from the store bakery keeps coming to mind... if she hardly ever bought those, then getting one as a treat might have attracted attention? speculation big time.I don't know if she went to a store.
