New lead in cold case?

From NBC:

New evidence has been discovered in the cold case investigation of the murder of a young Queens teenage girl in Feburary 1988, NYPD officials tell News 4's I-Team.

NYPD officials say the evidence into 14-year-old Christine Diefenbach's killing in Richmond Hill is being examined, but would not identify exactly what it is.

Despite the recent discoveries in the case, detectives are still hoping someone steps forward and calls the NYPD Crime Stoppers tip line with information that could lead to the arrest of a suspect.

The murder happened on a Sunday morning. Christine left her home on 125th Street around 7:30 a.m. She was walking to a newsstand to buy the Sunday paper and a gallon of milk.

According to the police report, NYPD pronounced her dead at 12:45 pm.

New evidence?? It's more likely that the do-nothing 102 Pct is finally getting around to investigating the case.

Tragic....in the late 80's the area adjacent the tracks was derelict and full of abandoned cars where dealers and addicts roamed. Taking that shortcut was the last mistake that girl ever made, sadly.

Crack heads, convicted felons hanging out on the train tracks, abandoned train cars that they were probably living in. Cherokee sounds like a street name for a black man.
