Kimberlie Krimm disappeared on June 30. She returned several days later as an image in the daily newspapers and on the nightly newscasts, all reporting the death of the pretty, feisty 14-year-old.

Kimberlie's decomposed body was found July 6 on an overgrown hillside in Versailles Cemetery, about a block from her McKeesport home.

It was a sad, shocking story. Yet, within a few days, the tale of her killing was elbowed aside by other events, other news, and Kimberlie vanished again -- except in dozens of storefront windows in downtown McKeesport, where small posters bearing her picture ask for help in solving the case; except on the cemetery hillside, where Kimberlie's body lay unnoticed for six days and where flowers, candles, cards and teddy bears now are placed in tribute; and except in the red house on the steep side of Evans Street, where Kimberlie's mother, Jeanie Krimm, keeps numerous pictures of her daughter.

The biggest image is an artist's sketch, a gift from a friend, presented last week to Kimberlie's parents, Jeanie and George Krimm, and her two older sisters. It leans against a door in the living room.

At first, all the images of Kimberlie in McKeesport made it almost unbearable for Jeanie Krimm to go shopping, but she said police told her it would be better to keep Kimberlie's image in the public eye. Jeanie Krimm now agrees.

"I want him to see what a beautiful child he destroyed," Jeanie Krimm says of her daughter's killer. "I want to lay a guilt trip on this guy. I want him to eat, sleep and breathe Kimberlie Krimm."

There still are no suspects in the case.

I hope and pray who ever is responsible for the murder of your daughter is found and brought to justice soon....I can only imagine the heartache and emptiness you feel everyday without answers. Kimmie needs to rest in peace. She can't do that until this murder is solved....God Bless you Jeanie and your family for the day to day agony you all endure.

"Science caught up" in 1979 Monaca homicide
Updated: January 30, 2012 - 4:40 pm
BEAVER -- Saying "science caught up with us," police linked three pieces of evidence collected at a 1979 murder scene in Monaca to a DNA sample taken from a Bridgewater man in December 2011.
Alleged murderer "upset ... angry" before pulling trigger
Posted: January 30, 2012
BEAVER -- A single comment, shared across a kitchen table, provided the only hint into Robert Maier's mindset in the moment he allegedly shot and killed Matt Rose at a Rochester residence in November, according to testimony provided Monday in Maier's preliminary hearing at the Beaver County Courthouse.

Residents may just be struggling to reconcile the allegations of the murder with a man they thought they knew, said Bruce Ledewitz, a law professor at Dusquesne University in Pittsburgh.

"People who were murderers don't always act like murders" as time goes on, Ledewitz said. "It's like the cases in which a radical blows up a building in the '60s, and then goes underground and becomes a regular citizen." He added that many details about the case against Hopkins are still not public.

Stephanie Lazarus Verdict: Jury Finds Ex-LAPD Detective Guilty In Murder Case

LOS ANGELES A quarter century after a woman's murder, jurors took little more than a day to decide Thursday the killer was a former Los Angeles police detective who was finally unmasked by her DNA and history of obsessive love for her victim's husband.

Stephanie Lazarus was impassive as she heard the first-degree murder verdict. Her long-ago lover, John Ruetten, watched grimly in the courtroom with the family of his slain wife.

Lazarus, 51, was linked to the case by a cold case team examining DNA swabs taken from a bite mark on the arm of victim Sherri Rasmussen.

Police Chief Charlie Beck, who had worked closely with Lazarus in the LAPD, apologized to the Rasmussen family for the long delay in closing the case.
"I am truly sorry for the loss of your wife, of your daughter. I am also sorry it took us so long to solve this case and bring a measure of justice to this tragedy," he said in a written statement.
"This case was a tragedy on every level," he added. "The LAPD family felt a sense of betrayal to have an officer commit such a terrible crime."
Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley was in court for the verdict and said later the case demonstrated the importance of DNA as an investigative tool.

"Had it not been for DNA the case might never have been solved," he said.
The police officer's union issued a statement saying it hoped the case would not tarnish the reputation of thousands of dedicated police officers.
The conviction came after a three-week trial that included testimony from a forensic expert who said the DNA found in the bite mark was a match to Lazarus.
Her defense attorney countered that the DNA was packaged improperly and deteriorated while stored in a coroner's freezer for two decades. He also suggested there might have been evidence tampering.

Prosecutors Shannon Presby and Paul Nunez suggested during the trial that Lazarus, a trained police officer, knew to avoid leaving other evidence such as fingerprints and may have worn gloves.
The idea that saliva from a bite mark could be her undoing was inconceivable in 1986 when DNA had not yet entered the justice system as a forensic tool.
Among those present at the verdict was Superior Court Judge Lance Ito, who presided over the first famous DNA case in the building the O.J. Simpson trial in 1995. Ito, whose court is down the hall from that of Superior Court Judge Robert Perry, had occasionally stopped in to listen to DNA testimony during the Lazarus trial.

The family of Rasmussen cried softly after the verdict was delivered in the courtroom ringed by 10 sheriff's deputies.

Does anyone know if law enforcement agencies other than MPD might be involved in this case?

I have heard for some time that the bad person is known, but law enforcement can not come up with indisputable evidence.

Is this just another rumor?
