Mohave Silent Witness has announced that they will be offering a reward of up to $2,500 in exchange for any information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for a 1989 cold case homicide. The homicide is being investigated by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit.

On November 24, 1989, Detectives were called to a desert area approximately 1.5 miles south of I-40 at milepost 66.5 for human remains located. The reporting party advised she had located the body and several items of evidentiary value. Detectives responded to the scene and collected all possible evidence items. Detectives also noted that due to decomposition of the remains, the homicide had potentially occurred a few months prior to discovery. An autopsy was performed by the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office, however a cause of death was never determined and the victim was unable to be identified. The victim was described as a white female, approximately 5’ 5” tall, 115 lbs, and between the ages of 25-30.

Several attempts to identify the victim have been made over the years, to include investigative interviews and DNA matching. Items located at the scene were sent off for testing and did not provide any usable information. We are asking that the community come forward with any possible information into the identity of the victim or the homicide. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigation Unit at 928-753-0753 ext. 4408.
