Unsolved 1981 killing continues to haunt investigators

BRYAN, Texas (AP) — The gruesome 1981 death of Virginia Freeman haunts the investigators involved with the still-unsolved case.

Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says they have plentiful DNA evidence from the death of the married mother of two, but there has never been a match found in the genetic database.

Travis Bryan III was the Brazos County district attorney when the real estate agent was killed. He told The (Bryan-College Station) Eagle (http://bit.ly/2pSEYW6) that despite the passage of 35 years, he’ll never forget the look of stark terror in Freeman’s eyes as she lay dead in the back yard of a home up for sale.

Freeman had been sexually assaulted, stabbed in the neck 11 times, had her neck broken by strangulation and was hit in the head with a 4½-pound concrete chunk.
