Sometimes we just need a reminder that humanity is still capable of good. Five months after the victim of one the nation's most notorious cold cases was identified, a new headstone was unveiled and a memorial service was held at Oakwood Cemetery in Huntsville, Texas on Wednesday.
Another service was held in Corpus Christi:
The person(s) responsible for this crime are still unknown. The FBI apparently now has jurisdiction over the case since Sherri was from out-of-state and legally a minor. There was some official talk of a Person of Interest a few months ago, but nothing has come out since. We know that the day she ran away she went to Green Bay, Wisconsin; afterwards to Denver, Colorado; and then (probably) to Aransas Pass, Texas. At this point, there is not enough information publicly available even to make an educated guess as to who killed her or even why she happened to come to Huntsville. I'm sure that we'll know more in the upcoming months as the FBI interviews people and traces her whereabouts.
As a side note for those interested, much of the earlier research we'd done trying to locate the (then known as) WCJD has been passed on to the authorities because it seems to fit another case of a missing girl who was widely believed to have been WCJD:
Any updates that come from that case, we'll keep readers posted too. And thank you again to everyone who helped bring some resolution to this.
