By edhat staff
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is continuing the search for the suspect who murdered Kym Morgan in Santa Barbara in 1985.
On the 35th anniversary of Morgan's disappearance, the FBI Most Wanted Twitter page posted an alert seeking information with a $25,000 reward for this unsolved murder.
"Kym Morgan disappeared from Santa Barbara, CA, on April 28, 1985. Four days later, her partial remains were found along the side of East Camino Cielo Road in the Los Padres National Forest. The #FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for info about her murder," the post read.
Morgan was a photography student at the Brooks Institute with blonde hair and green eyes, standing 6-feet tall. She was just a month shy of her 25th birthday.
Morgan disappeared on April 28, 1985, after telling her roommate that she was going to meet a man who had called her about a newspaper ad Morgan had placed trying to find a new place to live. The ad stated that she would babysit, garden, or do chores in exchange for rent and board. Morgan told her roommate that she was going to meet the man and his children at the County Lumber store on the Mesa.
She was reported missing the next day, April 29, 1985, after she had not returned and her roommate and landlord found Morgan's vehicle, 1962 white Chevy Corvair, abandoned and unlocked in the lumber store parking lot.
Four days later, Morgan's partial remains were found strewn along the side of East Camino Cielo Road in the Los Padres National Forest above Santa Barbara. Her thighs had been placed alongside each other in a culvert. Her torso, right arm, and lower left leg are still missing.
