    While at Westdale she spoke with friends and was last seen at a jewelry store around 9 pm. Little did her friends know this would be the last time they’d see Michelle alive.
    In 2006, a cold case investigator discovered unidentified blood, presumably belonging to the killer, while he was reviewing case files. A DNA profile was developed from evidence and was entered into CODIS, without any luck.
    It would be another decade plus before the Martinko family would have answers.

    Beth Bramlett, SOLVED!

    Beth Bramlett, SOLVED!

    On Saturday August 8, 1982 Beth Bramlett, a 17 year old white female, went to a party at Trading House Lake Reservoir with some of her friends. A fight broke out at the party and Beth decided to leave. That was the last time any of her friends saw Beth alive.
    At the crime scene, he said, Bramlett’s body was laid across the tracks, face down, and didn’t appear to have been brutalized, but when investigators turned her over, it appeared someone had chewed or gnawed, maybe even eaten a part of her body.
    OTHER NOTES:
    Tune in October 16, 2021 at 8 PM EST, for Snapped: Behind Bars, The Taylor Marks Story. I will be the talking head for the episode.
    On October 27th, 2021, there will be a memorial walk in honor of Amy. It will be held at the Bay Middle School at 5:00 PM. Visit walkforamy.org for more information.
