About this Case:

On March 9, 1970, the body of a female was found dumped off the side of Highway 128, 20 feet north of the Jefferson/Boulder County line, in Boulder County. The body was identified as Betty Lee Jones; she had been shot multiple times. Jones was last seen the day before in the early afternoon arguing with her husband of 9 days in front of their residence at 1216 York Street, Denver. He started to drive away from the area and saw her get into a blue 1961 or 1962 Chevrolet Malibu. When he drove around the block, she and the car were gone. Four suspects were identified and eliminated through DNA testing.
