    Map of places she was known to frequent as well as general location
    of where she was living and her body found.

    The daughter of the man Asbury lived with said two men picked up Asbury at her home near 71st Avenue and Indian School Road between 2 and 2:30 p.m. At least one of the men had picked up Asbury in the past, the daughter said.

    Witnesses at Boomerangs said they last saw Asbury with two White men, getting into a 1960s-model red pickup truck with primer spots.

    This sounds like a lot of evidence! I'm surprised this case hasn't been solved yet!

    Me too. I am hoping there is some viable existing evidence which can be tested with today's technology.

    In another article re: unsolved AZ crimes I read this:

    There are more than 2,500 unsolved homicides and sex crimes in Phoenix dating back to the 1950s.

    Is this thread still open about Debra Faye Asbury? I believe she is my missing sister. (But I pray it not her) I live in Maine and cannot go locally looking for info. Would like more info on this. Been trying to contact cold case unit but playing telephone tag. If anyone has anymore info on this case please email me at <redacted> Please! She has been missing since early 80's. the pic they show of her is so much like younger pics I have of her!

    Yes, the thread is open BJSAB. We keep all missing persons threads open until they are solved then moved to the "solved/resolved" forum. I hope it's not your sister too.
    Has your missing sister been reported to NamUs?
    I don't have much information on Debra, I posted what I could find.

    Welcome to the forum, I am sorry it is under these circumstances of your sister missing.

    In case you aren't familiar with NamUs it is data base of missing and unidentified persons.
    Here is their website: https://www.namus.gov

    MOTIVE?! It dosen't say She was Sexually Assaulted. Eventhough Her Blouse was open and Bra pushed up with Breasts exposed. But the "Torturous" things done to Her. Fence Wire, Bite Marks, BOOT Print between Thighs, THEN stabbed with a "Screwdriver"!!! But NO DNA! Sounds like ALOT OF HATE! And with ATM Photo, they SHOULD of had a "Suspect". I think THAT was probably Shoddy Police Work. It the Article it sounds like She wouldn't accept a Ride from JUST ANYONE.
