    So many crimes can be hidden in the dark. It boggles the mind that the boyfriend "didn't" walk her home in the middle of the night.

    So you have a 16 year-old walking the five blocks home at almost 3 am in the morning alone. Except she wasn't alone. After being at a party with 60 other teenagers, someone was lurking. The arguing the neighbour heard at 3 am had to be Rhona and her killer. My guess? It was someone who wanted to be with her, or who wanted to mean way more to her than he did. It was 3 am, drinking may or may not have been involved. He gets into a rage when she turns away his advances and he rapes and strangles her. Since nothing more was heard from the neighbour, the killer would have had to incapacitate her (which didn't kill her) or strangle her as he raped her? No mention if she had a head wound?

    Almost 42 years and no DNA match. This killer lead a very quiet life and somehow stayed off the radar, or they haven't been able to track down a sample to check against the remaining suspects. No doubt someone knows he did it or may have even suspected he did it. Someone ALWAYS knows ....
