FULLERTON, Calif. (KABC) -- The Orange County Sheriff's Department is looking for help solving a murder that happened more than 40 years ago.
Fifteen-year-old Kerry Patterson was last seen walking toward her home in Fullerton in June of 1980. Her remains were found in December of that year in a field near the 57 freeway in Brea.
Investigators got a break in this cold case last year, when someone came forward with information about a man believed to be in the area at the time Kelly disappeared.
They have a sketch and are now trying to identify and locate him: at this point they are only calling him a person of interest.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Bob Taft at (714)647-7045 or email@example.com. Anonymous tips can be submitted to OC Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227) or at occrimestoppers.org.
