    State and local authorities seek help in 31-year-old cold case

    Veronica Hepworth
    Hepworth's last known boyfriend

    The Virginia State Police and the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office are looking to the public to help solve a 31-year-old cold case.

    Police are hoping to not only identify Veronica Hepworth's killer, but also to identify a man who was associated with her at the time of her death.

    A Fairfax County resident, Hepworth, then 20, was found murdered Feb. 25, 1982. A driver on Route 50 discovered her partially clothed body on a driveway, about a quarter-mile east of Route 15 near Gilberts Corner.

    Hepworth was last seen alive at around 1:30 a.m. that same day at the Fancy Dancer Bar on Route 1 in Fairfax County, celebrating a friend's birthday. Investigators still don't know if Hepworth left the bar alone and hitchhiked home or if she left with another person.

    Tips and witness information indicate a red pickup truck, possibly a late 60s or early 70s model, was near the farm where her body was found.

    Police are also hoping someone can help identify the man who was Hepworth's last-known, serious boyfriend. A white man, he would probably be in his 50s today. Police say he is not necessarily a suspect, but could possibly provide additional information in the case.

    Anyone with information about Hepworth or the man in the photograph is asked to call the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Fairfax field office at 703-376-1690 or the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office at 703-737-8497. All calls will remain confidential.
