Karen Lynn Douglas, madre casada de un bebé recién nacido, fue encontrada muerta a puñaladas en su casa de Houston el. 6, 1981, the Texas Department of Public Safety dijo en un comunicado de prensa el martes.
Douglas was last seen alive two hours before her death, según los investigadores.
Her body was found when her mother arrived at the home on Croteau Drive to pick Douglas up for a doctor’s appointment. Investigators at the time determined Douglas had been involved in a struggle before she was murdered.
Douglas’ infant child was found at the home unharmed. Her husband had been at work at the time of the attack.
Investigators have said that a slew of other unsolved home invasions in the area near Douglas’ home took place in the months before and after her death.
In those cases, an individual with a knife also attacked women who were home alone. The only suspect description given for these crimes was “a young, slender white male,” el departamento dijo.
sin embargo, it remains unclear whether Douglas’ death is connected with those incidents.
An increased reward of $ 6,000 is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest in the case. The increased reward is only available until the next bi-monthly featured cold case, el departamento dijo.
