It’s been 42 years since Sherri Miller and Pam Jackson vanished on their way to a party.
Since that night, many have wondered what happened to the two Vermillion girls. But now, four decades later, the car the two girls were driving was found, bringing new hope to the case.
Former FBI agent Adrian Mohr did not work on this case specifically, but he has worked on a number of cold cases that have turned active after many years.
With the latest finding of the car and skeletal remains inside, Mohr says this will now lead to an active investigation. Mohr says law enforcement will continue to investigate the case like it’s new, following new leads and finding new evidence.
“They will look at all the evidence like it is new. They will do a full investigation and they will exhaust all leads,” Mohr said.
Now, as authorities open the case again, families could get some closure they have been waiting for. But Mohr says there is still a long road ahead.
“With this extreme weather in South Dakota, with the hot and the cold, and then the car being submerged in water, more evidence could have been washed away more than anything,” Mohr said.
This case is still ongoing and we are still waiting for results on whether those remains are of the two girls.
