Details: Twenty-seven year old Su Taraskiewicz was a Northwest Airlines ramp supervisor and only the second female ground service employee working for the airline. On September 12, 1992, Su left work to go get food for her co-workers and vanished. On September 14, her body was found stuffed in her trunk, was stabbed multiple times and beaten to death. At first, police assumed that Su was the victim of a random act of violence until in late 1993, Su's mother found her diary and was shocked at what was written in it. It told of the sexual harrasment and other incidents that had occured to her while working for Northwest Airlines and her mother was certain that it had something to do with her murder. In one incident, a co-worker named Bobby who destroyed her radio and threatened to kill Su's boyfriend when he confronted Bobby. She filed several complaints to the airline, but little was done about it. After she filed the report, the harrasment worsened, and in one incident, Su found a graffiti drawing of a coffin with Su's name on it in her own locker. Despite this, Su continued to work harder and was eventually promoted to ramp supervisor. The harrasment continued, and then came September 12, when Su mysteriously disappeared after leaving work. When Su was later found dead, police suspected that the death may have been connected to an investigation of Northwest Airlines that took place in the summer preceding her murder. Some of the baggage handlers working with Su were operating a stolen credit card ring. When shipments of new cards were transported by Northwest jets, they would steal them and use them or sell them. Ten of the workers were later arrested and convicted, some of which were named by Su in her journal. A $250,000 reward is being offered by Su's family for an arrest in the case, which remains open but unsolved.
Suspects: Su's co-worker named Bobby, and the co-workers that were involved in the credit card scam are suspects in her murder.
Extra Notes: This segment originally aired on the February 9, 1996 episode of Unsolved Mysteries .
Results: Unsolved. Staff at Northwest Airlines refused an interview on the show, leaving a lot of questions of what led directly to Su's death.
