I read on here that the DMV has purged all of the old records. Whether or not they can retrieve them I hope they can. The Ford dealership in Ovid is still run by the same family as back then. The owner is LK's cousin. Even though he sells Fords, I think that he would be a good source to question about who had what cars back then. The pea green color of a Chevy definitely could stand out in someone's mind, you would think.

I agree that LE needs to post pictures of the pillow case & hat. Someone knows who was wearing that hat that night. Maybe the pillow case has a monogram, or a stamp like the jails, hospitals or nursing homes have on them or something that can identify where it might have come from.

Someone on here mentioned that there was a lot of traffic at that time of night with the shift changes going on at Willard Hospital & the Sheriff's dept. I believe those shift changes happened at 11:00pm. The heavy traffic for them would be between 10:30 & 11:30pm. Kristin was seen almost an hour later walking on the road. Any traffic at that time of night would have been people at the bars & parties going on that night. How many parties go on in the first few days of the week? That seems very odd to me. Did any of these people have jobs to go to the next day?

Has there been any information given anywhere as to how much blood was found at the scene? If there wasn't much found there, then she was more than likely kidnapped, murdered elsewhere, and brought back & placed in the cornfield. I am puzzled as to what type of person would know how to pose her body to make her appear to have been raped. Could it be a rapist? Could it be someone in LE who has worked rape cases? Could it be a woman who had been raped herself before?

I believe that whoever did this to Kristin never imagined how far science & technology would be advanced in the year 2014. The only thing they had back in 1985 was a lie detector. So I wonder how many of those interviewed were even give a lie detector test back then. How many of them were doing drugs or alcohol to keep them calm while they lied? Were they ever drug & alcohol tested before being given the lie detector test? Today if someone is given a lie detector test while on drugs or alcohol it's thrown out & done again when straight & sober. Maybe it's time to have some of those people retake a lie detector test. Anyway, like I said, whoever did this to Kristin, or even remotely involved in any way, never imagined that the science & the technology of 2014 would be what it is today. They never imagined that just a few skin cells of theirs left behind on Kristin's clothing, under her fingernails, in her hair or a single strand of their hair could prove that they were involved with her murder.

To Mrs. O'Connell, justice will soon be served.
God Bless You.
