Part of a decades-old cold case in Indiana has been solved. Investigators in Wayne County say remains found in 1982 are those of a missing Wisconsin woman. Connie Christensen was 20 years old when she disappeared. Her body was later found in a rural area about sixty miles east of Indianapolis, but authorities were never able to find out who she was or where she came from. Recently, a research team with the DNA Doe Project was finally able to determine her identity and give some closure to her family. Authorities say they will continue to search for her killer.
