Cold Case Breakthrough: Unidentified Remains Identified After 40 Years

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has recently made a significant breakthrough in a cold case that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades, thanks to advanced forensic investigative genetic genealogy techniques.

The remains, discovered by children near a canal bank in the 1980s, had long been referred to as “The Nameless.” However, with the help of genetic genealogy, these unidentified remains have finally been identified as belonging to Terry Ketron, a resident of Kentucky.


Terry Ketron had traveled to South Florida in the 1980s, accompanied by a woman named Connie or Bonnie. The last communication from Ketron was a phone call where he mentioned having troubles with his girlfriend and her family.

For decades, investigators had been unable to make any headway in this cold case. However, recent advancements in genetic genealogy have finally provided a name to the once-unidentified remains, shedding light on this mysterious case.

Now, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the assistance of the public in gathering more information about the woman who was with Terry Ketron during his visit to South Florida. Any details or leads that could potentially help solve this case are highly sought after.

If you have any information related to this case, please do not hesitate to contact the sheriff’s office directly or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS. Your contribution could be crucial in bringing closure to this long-standing mystery.
