On Nov 16, 1979, the body of 31-year old Irene Pearson was found in a vacant home in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She had been hit multiple times in the head with a blunt object and had been repeatedly stabbed as well. It is believed that because Irene was a real estate agent, she had been showing the home to a potential client when she was murdered.
A witness described a man seen with Irene before her body was discovered as being between 22-30 years of age, with brown hair and possibly a mustache. An inexpensive silver cross was found near Irene's body which may have belonged to the killer. One last clue is that one of the last people seen at the home drove a red or blue newer-model Plymouth Volare or Dodge Aspen.
Based on investigating agencies, it is advised to contact either the WPS Historical Homicide Unit at 204-986-3819 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).

Thoughts? If the man last seen with Irene was her killer, then he would be between 59-69 years of age by now. That means there's a good chance that he's still alive. Whether he lives in Winnipeg still or has since moved to a different part of Canada is another question. Hopefully advances in DNA technology and/or a tip from the public can finally bring him to trial for Irene's murder.

this sounds like a case only DNA can solve, but hopefully one day it does. (Not that it means you don't give up and still continue to work it and defy the odds even without DNA so hopefully Irene's case continues to not be forgotten.)
