WEATHERFORD (CBSDFW.COM) – As part of an awareness campaign, the Texas Department of Public Safety is shining a spotlight on a different cold case each month. The latest unsolved case that is getting new attention is a Weatherford murder investigation from nearly 30 years ago.
It was July 1987 when Wendy Kae Robinson was found dead. The 19-year-old woman had graduated from Weatherford High School and was a freshman at Weatherford College. She had last been seen near the east end of Lake Weatherford — at an area known by locals as The Wall.
Robinson’s body was located four days later, several miles away. Her killer was never found.
The Texas Rangers are hoping that new attention on this cold case — and similar unsolved cases across the state — could bring in new leads that will help out authorities. Those who may have information about Robinson’s death have numerous ways that they can contact officials.
There is a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest of Robinson’s killer. To be eligible, tipsters must call Parker County Crime Stoppers at 817-599-5555 or submit their tip online. Those who provide information are able to remain anonymous.
