A Cold Case from 1985—Lisa Kroeyr

When I was working on my book about cold cases, it wasn’t unusual for people to ask me things like, “What does it matter after all these years?”

I’d try not to judge the person, but questions like that really made me wonder about their inability to empathize. I suppose we all should be stronger, but everyone recovers at different rates, and some things you never quite recover from.

Lisa Kroeyr was murdered in 1985 in Saginaw, Michigan, and 27 years later her caring and loyal relative still works tirelessly to find her killer.

Perhaps you know something that you were unable to share all those years ago, but maybe now you can. Imagine if it was your cousin, or sister, or daughter. Imagine how you’d feel about her killer going on to enjoy 27 free years of life after robbing your child of hers?

If you think you can help, please contact the Saginaw Crime Stoppers line at 1-800-422-Jail.

In fact, anyone reading this who knows something about any murder anywhere, make this the year you summon the courage to tell someone. Make this the year you bring even just a tiny bit of peace to the heart of someone who lost a person they cared about. You can be the good guys.

More information about Lisa’s case can be found here.

    The Word of God says, there is nothing hidden that shall not be uncovered. I hope and pray this Word manifests in this case and also the case of Beverly & Debra Cruse. Two sisters who were murdered in Los Angeles, 1980. Also, the unsolved case of Kari Lenander, 1980. It has been far too long.

    My dad was murdered on 8/22/1983 at his job on Delancey/Pitt st in the office at about 430pm–never solved but never goes away!
    His name was Albert Garland and this was in the poultry market where he worked 6 days a week.
    Any help/input appreciated.

    Lisa Cay Kroyer was the daughter of my first husband. Her father passed away several years ago. She was a very nice, caring person and she was very pretty. I have been praying for many years that her killer is found. He doesn’t deserve to be free when he took her life away.

    I’m so sorry, Mary. When did this happen, and where exactly?
