ISP needs help solving 1975 murder

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Cold case detectives with the Indiana State Police are searching for anyone with information that could help them solve a 1975 murder.



On August 7, 1975, the body of 17-year-old Laurel Jean Mitchell was found in the Elkhart River in Noble County.



She was last seen leaving work at Epworth Forest in North Webster at approximately 10:15 p.m. the evening before.



Police need help identifying a group of young people who performed as a singing group at the Cokesbury Inn inside Epworth Forest on the night of August 6, 1975.



The members were between the ages of 16-22 years old. They traveled in one vehicle and may have stopped at the North Webster fire station around 10:30 p.m. on August 6. They are believed to be from the Delphi, Indiana area.



There is a reward for information that leads to a resolution of the case. If you can provide information on the singing group, their members or about the case in general, contact Detective Smith at 260-403-2841 or at 260-432-8661.
