From Unsolved Mysteries Wikia:
Real Name: Megan Curl
Nicknames: No Known Nicknames
Location: Lufkin, Texas
Date: March 26, 2000
Details: Twenty-six-year-old Megan Curl had a slight mental disability and was a big fan of the night clubs in Lufkin, Texas. It was this love that may have lead to her demise, as police suspect that a man she met at a club might have been responsible for her murder. On the night of her murder on March 25, 2000, she went to a local nightclub called the "Electric Cowboy" where she was a regular and had many friends. On this night, however, she was asked to leave and an unidentified man left and went with her a few blocks down to another club called the "Sports Shack", and another man, a friend of hers, drove her home from there. She arrived home around 1:30 am and a close friend/neighbor, "Tonia", waited up to hear the details of her night out. She claims that she and Megan were standing outside talking when a man suddenly appeared in a speeding car, coming to a dead stop. Megan said that she believed that it was a friend of hers from the club, so she went down to him. Tonia went into her apartment and when she came back out, it was still there and Megan was in the car with the man, she went back into the apartment again and when she came back out, the car was still there, but Megan and the man were not.
At around 2:20 am, she went to Megan’s apartment to check on her. When she answered the door, Tonia noticed that the man was with her, she said that it was her friend from the club and she said she was okay. Tonia looked down to him, and the man nodded his head slowly without them exchanging any words. She asked Megan if she was really okay and she said she was, so Tonia said goodnight and left. This was the last time Megan was seen alive. Soon after, her neighbors noticed flames in her apartment. The fire department was called and when the fire was extinguished, they made a shocking discovery; her body was charred beyond recognition, was tied to her bed, her throat had been slashed to the bone and a plastic bag had been placed over her head. She was later identified by dental records. Authorities are certain that her killer was the man that Tonia saw her with early, but he has never been located.
Suspects: The prime suspect in the case is a white male with blond hair, a light mustache, and gold-rimmed glasses, and would now be in his late 30s. Police also want to speak to a man wearing a cowboy hat who Megan met at the club. He was seen buying several drinks for her, but he is not considered a suspect, although they want to question him for any clues to her murder. He is a white or Hispanic male with dark complexion and dark hair. Megan's past lovers were questioned, however, they all had solid alibi's and none of them are considered a suspect.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the December 10, 2001 episode.
