new evidence has come to light in this case. A forensic botanist in Texas determined that three microscopic pollen grains from an Australian pine that were recovered this summer inside the girl's red jacket and her pants pocket could have come only from Florida, Arizona or most likely Southern California, provided she didn't leave the country.
"The chances of one of those pollen grains reaching that area of New York on air currents might be, I don't know, a billion to one," said professor Vaughn Bryant, director of the Palynology Laboratory at Texas A&M University. "But three of them, unh-unh, I'm sorry, it's not possible."
Based on an assortment of about 40 other pollen types that were also found, the girl seems to have resided in or at least traveled through coastal regions in Southern California such as San Diego, Bryant said, adding that "with more effort, it's possible we could narrow this down further." The girl, believed to be about 15 years old, was shot in the forehead beside a country road in Caledonia the night of Nov. 8, 1979, then was dragged into the field and shot again in the back, police said. The next morning, a farmer spotted her brightly colored jacket and walked over, thinking a hunter was trespassing.
