• Investigator talks to Channel 11 about 24-year-old murder mystery


    Investigators are continuing their push to solve a 24-year-old murder mystery in Beaver County.

    Today, longtime investigator Tom Carter sat down with Channel 11 to discuss the case of Sarah Boehm, a 14-year-old girl from Rochester who went missing in July 1994.

    A few months later, hunters found her body in a remote part of Ohio. It was badly decomposed and wasn’t identified until 2003.

    Carter, a retired FBI agent who now works as a detective with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office, said they’ve had several suspects over the years but there was never enough evidence to make an arrest.

    "It's an unsolved murder of a little girl that didn't deserve to die,” Carter said. “I believe that she deserves justice."

    That same year, the body of 17-year-old Kathryn Menendez was found about half a mile away from where Boehm was discovered. She was strangled to death.

    Investigators say it’s unclear if the two deaths are linked.
