Leaving her best friend's home, the Queens, NY native had twenty-six blocks to cross before she'd arrive home. She never made it and less than ten hours later, her body was discovered in the playground of PS 203 - more than six miles off course from Leslie's walk.The initial investigation struggled with a lack of evidence, witnesses and suspects. Despite sincere efforts, the case grew cold. Thirty-two years later, a curious dream caused an NYPD Chief to take another look. Using new techniques and technology, they would finally identify a person of interest. However, nearly fifty years later, they still need your help to bring this monster to justice.Trace Evidence FacebookInstagramTwitterOfficial WebsiteOfficial MerchMusic Courtesy of: "Lost Time" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/#crime #truecrime #coldcase #queensny #newyork #newyorkcrime #unsolved #lesliezaret #truecrimepodcast #unsolvedmysteries #zaret
