Grand jury to investigate 1984 death of Colorado girl
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A district attorney’s office in Colorado announced Tuesday that a grand jury will investigate the death of the 12-year-old girl whose disappearance attracted the attention of the White House and shocked a rural Colorado community.
Jonelle Matthews was last seen alive around 8:30 p.m. Dec. 20, 1984, at her home in Greeley. The Greeley Tribune reported that her body was found in July 2019 by construction workers. Police labeled her death a homicide, but no one has been arrested.
The 19th Judicial District Grand Jury will now investigate the case with help from the Weld County district attorney’s office and the Greeley Police Department.
