This episode wouldn't be possible without all of the hard work and research by Rhiannon Garratt. Thank you Rhiannon for sharing your research and making it available to Why So Cold? and helping keep this case alive.

The partially-clothed body of 20-year-old Veronica Hepworth was discovered in the

early hours of February 25, 1982, along a driveway in Loudoun County—50 miles from

where she was last seen alive. Decades later, Veronica's case puzzles both law enforcement and the public with numerous questions which none have been answered.
