About this Case:

On December 27, 1975, Deborah Tomlinson was found in her apartment, 1029 Belford Avenue, lying partially clothed in a bathtub. She had been sexually assaulted, bound and strangled. A gash on her forehead suggests she may have fought with her attacker. Authorities have no evidence a weapon was used. A woman who managed the apartment complex found Tomlinson's body around 6:00 P.M after using a pass key to enter the locked unit. The manager had become worried after repeated phone calls were not answered and the bedroom window was left open and the toilet left running. Anyone with information regarding this case, is asked to please contact the Grand Junction Police Department.
