The Murder of Cynthia Gastelle

Skeletal remains of a young woman were discovered off Mountain Road in Haymarket, Prince William County, Virginia, on February 12th, 1982. Due to the advanced level of decomposition, for over 30 years, investigators were unable to tell who this person was or where she came from. Meanwhile, the family members of Cynthia Joan Gastelle hoped that their missing loved one would return home one day—unaware that she had already been found decades earlier. Source material:
