    On November 6 1988, Betty Rolf left around 6 a.m. to go to work at the Country Aire restaurant. She never made it there and a missing persons report was filed by her family the next day. Her body was later found wedged behind a concrete abutment, under the overpass. The official cause of death was listed as asphyxiation; she had been beaten and sexually assaulted. A DNA profile of the perpetrator was created and entered into the national database but investigators say that they have never gotten a hit. The DNA sample has eliminated just about everybody connected to Betty. This includes her husband, whom was a person of interest during the initial stages of the investigation.

    The restaurant was ten blocks from her home. She normally didn't walk to work but decided to do so that morning because of a snowstorm. The nature of the homicide was very personal and violent. Investigators believed that the person responsible would have attacked again. There's still a chance that a connection might be made but after 27 years, her family doesn't have high hopes that her murder will be solved.
