BERKELEY, Mo. (AP) — Thirty years after the remains of a girl were found in an abandoned St. Louis home, authorities hope new technology will help solve the case.

The headless remains of the girl were dug up Monday from a cemetery in the St. Louis County town of Berkeley, found in a white body bag.

The mystery began Feb. 28, 1983, when the girl’s body was found. A medical examiner concluded the remains were those of a black girl who was about 4-foot-10 and weighed about 60 pounds.
