Details: Eighteen-year-old Bonnie Craig was a vivacious and well-liked college freshman who arrived at a bus stop early in the morning of September 28, 1994, and then disappeared. Her body was found in a river later that day, and police believed that she had died in a hiking accident. Her mother, Karen Foster, however, found evidence that she might have been murdered. The case was turned into a murder investigation six months later when it was determined that she had been sexually assaulted. There seemed to be no reasons for her death, but many people believe it might have had something to do with Karen's undercover work with the local police. An informant told her that Bonnie may have been murdered by drug dealers with whom her undercover work was involved.One year later, a teacher became suspicious of one of his students and contacted her, suspecting that he may have been the killer. She claimed that he was late for school the day of Bonnie's death, and that he was wet too. However, DNA evidence ruled him out of her case, but Karen believed that there was another person involved. Police tried to search through the last morning that Bonnie was alive and found out that two unidentified men were seen with her shortly before she vanished. Despite this, they did not have any evidence to arrest anyone in connection with the case and her death remained unsolved.
Suspects: It was suspected that Karen's undercover work may have been the reason for her daughter's death. The drug dealer that it was involved with was a suspect. The student that the teacher had contacted her about Bonnie's death was also a suspect.
