Hi K. You may not remember me- but B.S. and I (C.H.) were friends of lori's when the tragedy occurred. Being her older sister, I'm sure we remember you more than you remember us :-)
Thanks for the response;
Here I had thought that the DNA evidence was compromised due to degeneration and was totally unaware that it cleared the initial suspects. I had always assumed they did it as everything seemed to fit and point to them (the comb with hair that looked like hers, hammer/I thought it was a tire iron with DNA, prior aquaintance/meeting with them at the party, rumors afterwards, etc) If they truely are innocent what a shame that they endured such accusations. For what it's worth: I remember Lori as a vibrant, bold soul who had a great sense of humor and took a 'dare' if presented with one. I was pretty wild as a teenager and did my share of partying but, looking back on it - we were all normal kids. Lori was beautiful, both physically, and as a friend. I survived my youth; practiced nursing for 20 years, raising 2 wonderful children and having been married to the same man for 26 years.
I can only imagine what Lori could have and would have achieved were she 'allowed'. She was robbed of so very much...as were you and your mom and brothers. All my best regards. I will always keep her in my prayers. The coward(s) will burn in hell if not convicted while on earth. The one thing I find solace in is that whoever did this has to be a miserable deviant who surely is unable to receive or be loved/cherished. Having to keep such a secret must have made their life one of guilt ridden, joyless loneliness- at least I hope so. C.
We can only hope they do have a miserable life. I am happy you have a wonderful life and have myself often wondered what she would have achieved and become with her life. Thank you for your prayers, it does mean a lot to our family that everyone still thinks of her and prayers for her.

I do remember you and B.S. I am happy you have a wonderful life. Thanks for the kind words about Lori and it really means alot to us that prayers are being said for her by everybody. I too often wonder what she would of become.

I do hope whomever did this is filled with a guilt ridden life.

Thank you for thinking of her.

I grew up in S Elgin and have very found memories of Lori, we were close family friends. I can not pass by Randal/Hops without thinking of Lori.

Good memories;

Why hasn't anyone tried to get this opened and at least followed up so that we all would get closure. With all the cold case files on tv why cant we petition them to bring this case back to the police attention. I know the family tried to get the police to re-opened this case. Back then we all knew each other and S.E., was such a small town that everyone knew everyone. We only had what 2 officers that worked for the department at that time. turner and abbott which iam sure that they wanted to get this killer put to justice for taking her life the way he did. Lori was a great person and deserves to rest in peace knowing that the killer or killers are behind bars or at the very least spent most of thier life in jail. we can only hope that they probably got into more trouble after no one came forward to finger them.

Lets all petition or try to get them to re-open this case as a cold case. Her family and the community need to get to the bottom of this. someone had to know something. may they burn in hell for the crimes that they committed on lori and probably other girls. they need to pay for the crime of taking an innocent girls life. Come on residents and friends and family of lori bolger. Time for us to put the pressure on the department to re-open this file. please, its been far to long. and thanks to her friend k for bringing that picture of lori and her to out attention again. this saddens me that nothing has been done for so long. this is the least we can do for lori and her family and friends. lets all put the pressure on the mayor to get something started. he remembers her cuz he went to school with all of us. RE-OPEN THE DEATH OF LORI BOLGER.......

She must be calling out. The man who killed her lived in the same building as I did in Elgin. He apparently picked her up after summer school. He was seen by my future wife and other(s) in the building hosing out the interior of his car. it is my understanding that he was later sent to prison on an unrelated charge-his wife having thrown him out shortly after the murder. she reportedly divorced him. I got this from an Elgin cop,a good friend, since deceased. He told me this guy(name withheld) was definitely on their radar, but they could not prove it. I was out of state when this happened, found out when I got back, and was sick with grief over it. I knew the whole family, my dad and hers worked together, and one of my best friends dated her sister. this sad excuse for a human being that did this will have to answer to a higher authority in this life or the next. if still alive, the guy would be in his middle sixties today. I think he was sent away for murder, but not sure about this. I'll never forget his name till the day I die myself. I cannot for the life of me figure out what brought her memory up after all these years, but I think it was a show I just watched on AMC. I don't believe that Larry ever got over losing his little sister. I pray that her surviving sibling has.

his name is bill reinbold. A little digging has his name out there anyway. He's in prison, due out 2019 I think. The detective I was friends with were liaising with SEPD, said he was the guy, but states attorney wouldn't charge him-not enough proof. Guy was a real piece of work. No one in the building had anything to do with him. His wife told my wife some very strange stories. Found a dumpster full of real weird stuff when they suddenly moved out. It always galled me that he used our garden hose to hose out the inside of his car. As an aside, the comment by the pingree grove firefighter seems inappropriate by more than a few lengths.

Thanks for the info. I agree that the comment by Kelly seems very inappropriate! This Bill seems like a real piece of work. Name sounds really familiar - did he live in South Elgin? Address?

At the time of the murder he lived in the bsmt.apt. at 1285 Abbott Dr in Elgin. Him and his wife Dez (her actual name, prob. short for Deseree or som
ething) just moved out suddenly.

Aye, and may he rot in prison. Maybe modern DNA testing can tie him to the crime, if enough interest can be generated. There seems to be more interest in cold cases these days.
