New Jersey State Police Assists With Identifying Victim In 43-Year-Old Cold Case In California

BURLINGTON COUNTY, N.J. (CBS) — Law enforcement in Burlington County recently assisted with a cold case in California. The remains of a young girl were found at a pumping station in San Francisco in 1976.

For 43 years, her remains went unidentified.

In June, a woman from Southampton who believed the remains may be of her niece provided New Jersey State Police with a DNA sample.

The California Department of Justice announced that the remains were identified as 14-year-old Judy Gifford.
