Indiana Cold Case: Do you know who abducted, killed 11-year-old Cheryl Ann Bolin?
MORGAN COUNTY, Ind. (Aug. 20, 2015)— The Morgan County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in solving the cold case murder of an 11-year-old girl, who was abducted around noon on August 19, 1975 from a rural area of northwest Morgan County.
It’s been 40 years since 11-year-old Cheryl Ann Bolin disappeared while riding her bicycle home from a friend’s house, and police continue their search for answers surrounding her death.
Authorities say Bolin stayed the night at her friend’s house and was riding her bicycle home when she went missing. It is believed she was abducted just north of I-70, which was just recently completed at the time. Bolin’s bicycle was located 300 feet away from the county road in a ravine.
On March 2, 1976, Bolin’s body was found in a rural area of Vigo County. Authorities say she was found face down by the edge of a small pond. It was reported she was wearing different clothes than the clothing she was wearing after she left her friend’s house. Officers also found her belongings along a fence row near the area where her body was discovered.
Bolin’s family and Morgan County deputies are desperately seeking answers in the young girl’s death. If you have any information regarding this cold case, contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.
