From Unsolved Mysteries Wiki:
Real Name: Tracy Kirkpatrick
Nicknames: No known nicknames
Location: Frederick, Maryland
Date: March 15, 1989
Details: In early 1989, Tracy Kirkpatrick had an afterschool job at a clothing store, but on March 15, the night she was supposed to lock up, someone entered and brutally stabbed her to death, leaving her body in the storeroom. A security guard located it soon after she was supposed to close the store. Her parents, Diane and Bill Kirkpatrick, arrived soon after to learn of her murder. Police found no motive for it and detectives were baffled, until a year later, a man named "Don" called the Maryland police and a murder confession hotline claiming to be her killer. A psychic later came forward claiming that a man named "Sean" was obsessed with her murder and was constantly trying to contact her. The psychic claims that she recognized the voice of "Don" as the man named "Sean". Police have been unable to find enough evidence to file charges against him and her murder remains unsolved.
Suspects: The man named "Don" and "Sean" is an obvious suspect in the case. When police attempted to talk to him, he pleaded the fifth amendment. hee security guard that found her body was also a suspect in the case.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the January 30, 1991 episode.
Results: Unsolved. Police have since identified the man known as "Don" and "Sean", and believe that he had nothing to do with the murder. However, they have since narrowed down their list of suspects to two people, and while they say they probably can't get a conviction at this point, they believe an indictment is possible. DNA testing of samples found at the scene began in March 2009, and the results could take months. However, the killer still has yet to be identified or apprehended.
Thoughts? This case has never aired on America's Most Wanted to the best of my knowledge but it is being placed in the Unsolved on TV section since, as noted above, it has aired on Unsolved Mysteries.
