    I don't recall the cheerleader, does she have a thread here at WS? I'd be curious to look at it if there is.

    she did her name escapes me, the mom was Billie and the person of interest was her boyfriend first name Shawn, they found the body at a lake and only small parts of her little body the killer got off scott free and that appears to be the end of the story, sadly.

    " Ryan Riggs, 21, initially confessed to his church congregation Wednesday and later to investigators in the May 2016 murder of Chantay Blankinship, Brown County Sheriff Vance Hill told reporters Thursday.

    Hill said Riggs “never was on our radar at all” prior to the release of a recently acquired DNA profile and composite drawing from a process called phenotyping. Investigators released the profile Nov. 8 after sending evidence to a laboratory in Virginia to develop a forensic profile that includes eye, skin and hair color, as well as biogeographic ancestry details."

    Same link as above.
