    Last seen alive after argument with boyfriend after leaving Dave's Bar early morning of Tuesday, August 12, 1986.

    Found strangled Bay Port Industrial Park, Green Bay, WI August 12, 1986, that afternoon, shortly after her family reported her missing.

    Address of Dave's Bar unknown.

    Sounds like the same scenario of Bonnie Marie Repinski, age 34, disappeared 15 Aug 1975 from Menasha, Winnebago County, WI, Bonnie also was never found. She also left their vehicle after an early morning argument with her husband, David Repinski, who runs Dave’s Who's Inn, now located at 835 Indiana Ave., Sheboygan, WI.

    Laine R. Shields aka Lloyd R. Repinski was a suspect in that disappearance.

    The Bayport Industrial Park, formerly Atkinson's Marsh is located near Peat’s Lake and Duck Creek and is Google mapped below. The above link is not the correct location, that one's in Texas.

    At 16:29 in the press conference livestream it is mentioned that Griffin had "just" been released from prison for sexual assault and moved to Green Bay a month before the murder. So it seems he does have a criminal history. It was also mentioned they never had any CODIS hits on the DNA from the murder, so I guess Griffin's DNA was never collected because he didn't have any convictions after the time DNA collection was required.

    A man has been bound over for trial on charges related to a 1986 murder in Green Bay.

    [...]

    At the hearing, a Green Bay Police detective who took over the case testified. Det. David Graf stated that investigators took beer cans from a dumpster outside Griffin’s apartment in Racine County and used it to obtain his DNA. They also found a cigarette butt that Griffin was seen tossing away, according to Graf’s testimony.

    The defense asked the judge to dismiss the case, claiming there was no evidence to show Griffin murdered Holstead. They claim Griffin had sex with Lisa Holstead, but someone else killed her.

    The prosecution stated there are reasonable inferences that the person who sexually assaulted Lisa Holstead also killed her.

    The judge sided with the prosecution and agreed there was probable cause to bind Griffin over for trial. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for Feb. 8.

    Local man’s work with FBI helps crack Green Bay cold case, colleagues say

    For now, the FBI won't speak publicly about forensic genetic genealogy but according to Green Bay detective, David Graf the same technique Steve Kramer's colleagues credit him with inventing is what lead to an arrest in the Green Bay cold case of Lisa Holstead; the 22-year-old single mother who was murdered in 1986.

    "It started with the media of the Golden State Killer case and I knew in the case we had a (DNA) profile that wasn’t identified. I didn’t know if this type of investigation was appropriate so I reached out to some people and I found out that it was the type of case that could be useful to them," says Graf about applying forensic genetic genealogy to Lisa Holstead's case.
