In 1992, a 25-year-old mother of three stepped out of her home in Clarksville, Tennessee, to go to the grocery store. That was the last time she was ever seen, the Washington Post reports.
The intense search for Susan Lund continued for several months, but she was never found.
A month later, two young girls, 10 and 12, made a gruesome discovery in an Illinois field: A human head.
Medical examiners made the following conclusions: Long, reddish hair, pen-shaped mole in her left ear, a silver dental filling, and she may have worn braces at one point. They estimated the age between 30-50 years and likely died 2-3 days before the girls discovered the head.
Despite the numerous clues, Illinois police were unable to identify the victim.
Now, thirty years later, new forensic technology has allowed police to identify the head and have matched it conclusively to Susan Lund.
Investigators say they have yet to determine who killed her, but are now on a mission to find the truth about what happened to Lund, calling the case a “reopened homicide investigation.”
The woman’s children were somewhat relieved by the news, said Lund’s sister, who spoke to the Southern Illinoisan, grateful to find out their mother abandoned them.
Authorities made an initial identification through a large DNA database called GEDmatch. Then by obtaining a DNA sample from one of Lund’s family members, made the conclusive match.
