Police Twitter account gives voice to girl murdered 45 years ago

California police used Twitter over the weekend to tell the story of a girl who was murdered 45 years ago, in hopes of gaining new information that might help them solve the case.

“Hi. I’m Linda O’Keefe (or Linda ANN O’Keefe, if I’m in trouble with my mom). Forty-five years ago today, I disappeared from Newport Beach. I was murdered and my body was found in the Back Bay. My killer was never found. Today, I’m going to tell you my story.” #LindasStorypic.twitter.com/G25n2IppZb

“But now, 45 yrs later, I have a voice again. And I have something important to say. There is a new lead in my case: a face. A face that comes from DNA that the killer left behind. It’s technology that didn’t exist back in 1973, but it might change everything today.” #LindasStorypic.twitter.com/GsZClKFwPj

“Usually, I ride my bike to school. The ride home is easy, because it’s almost all downhill. But today, I got a ride to school, so no bike. I’m going to call my mom and see if she’ll pick me up, so I don’t have to walk home.” #LindasStorypic.twitter.com/xAouON1DrC
