    Case History
    This young woman was apparently a hitchhiker; investigation after her death revealed that she had been seen on the Florida coast during the days preceding her death.

    In her pockets, she carried $30.00 and three business cards -- from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Canutillo, Texas, and West Monroe, Louisiana. Investigators contacted the names on the cards. Two of them were no help. The third, a Louisiana police officer, thought he might have talked to the girl, a runaway, a couple days before she was killed. If it's the same girl, she had a friend or a sister in Las Vegas and a thick Cajun accent. She might have been hitchhiking to Las Vegas.

    The victim died from injuries as a result of being hit by a tractor-trailer truck on Interstate 95, near State Road 84 at approximately 14:20 on August 3, 1982.
