This is sad on so many levels. I vaguely remember my parents talking about this once when I was little. So sad.

I remember when this happened. It happened when they were breaking ground for Hardee's on Pantops Mountain. Also remember there being talk about the possibility of her being buried there before they poured cement for the foundation of Hardee's. Does anybody know/remember if they ever searched there? I know they didn't have ground penetrating sonar back then.

How amazing that we send people to jail for drug possession or theft for longer periods of time than for murdering an innocent.

I was then and am still in the Fire Service in this county. I along with many others did a "line search" starting on Wolf Trap Road and going straight over the mountain until we got to Cismont. There were 2 massive searches like that in that area. The only thing we found were Copperhead snakes the size of baseball bats! Back then, Detective Jimmy Higgins of the Albemarle County Sheriff's Office was leading the investigation. We NEVER came close to finding Katie but all means of endeaver were employed, including a woman who was apritiual "see all", she claimed to have great feelings that Katie was near water. It has always been suggested that as a construction worker, working then on the Pantops Hardees, that he buried her in the foundation and the cement pad was poured the following day. The X-Ray machines at North Anna could provide some very interesting information. The fact is that he did commit the murder and nothing will ever sway me from that idea. There is more to say but this space is limited. He did kill her regardless as to what he says now or wouldn't say to his then lawyers.

If you do a serious study on serial killers you will see that a high percentage of them are involved in substance abuse, theft and arson before, during and after they cross the line of murder. If Ted Bundy had been jailed early in his career for his small crimes over 40, perhaps over 100, women would not have lost their lives. The examples of these individuals are too numerous to mention here but the symptoms of these people are amazingly constant.

Very few druggies serve long term sentences unless they are involved in large scale trafficking. As Longo tried to explain to our clueless city council arrests in 2011 for Charlottesville totaled over 5,000 and about 113 were for marijuana---most of these literally amounted to users doing their thing publicly so as to make a political statement. With very rare exception they were fined and that was that.

The premise of the oppressed druggie is incredibly overstated.

I still believe she is under hardees at pantops and think of her whenever I see it. Too bad law enforcement failed to follow through on that one. With todays technologies its never to late. and to SVILL no if you read the hook he lives out of state now. Got off real easy!

I also recall being told by my parents the stories of her being buried under the Hardees. So many people on here and ones I've talked to have heard this. It would be nice if this could be looked into.

It was never dug up, however I think it should be they are never really busy and with the technology that we have now it shouldn't be that hard. I have thought that she was there all along. I think they should look into it at least to give some kind of closer to at least know where you daughter is and give her proper burial.

I've also heard many stories that Elvis is alive. Should we expect the police to look for him too?

Funny when law enforcement doesn't find anything "they fail". The area was checked according to the news. Armchair detectives unite! I think CSI show might be leading the public to believe all police can do what they do. I wonder if CSI really can do all the stuff they have in the show.

Speaking of grammar: HS educations. Reporters is plural; reporters have high school educations.

In a perfect world we would drive up to the SOB's house and grab him. Then we would start chopping off his fingers until he told us what he did with the body.
