Police Seek Clues In Only Unsolved Murder of 2008

Monica Adams Monica Adams

Eight homicide investigations led Lubbock authorities to seven suspects this year.  Police say the death of 29-year-old Monica Adams is the only unsolved murder of 2008.  They hope someone will come forward with new information that could lead them the still unknown killer.

Investigators say they have some physical evidence they're looking into, and detectives are following some leads, still they hope someone out there can provide new details that will help solve this case.  "Anything you have, we urge you to contact Crime Line," Lubbock Police Sergeant Clay Winters said. 

An oil worker discovered Adams' body in a field near N. MLK Blvd. and Bradley St. on the morning of August 20th.  Authorities determined the 29-year-old died from multiple blows to the back of her head.  

The isolated location and late discovery create a challenge for investigators.  "There's not a whole lot of opportunity for witnesses in that location. The body was there for a day or two before it was found, that presents a problem in itself," Winters said. 

Adams was known to stay at the Sunset Motel on the Clovis Highway.  Hotel owner John Joshi told NewsChannel 11 back in August that Adams stayed there on and off for a couple of weeks, before her body was found.  "She was very nice. She was very friendly," Joshi said. 

Police narrowed down the timeline for when Adams went missing.  They say she disappeared between 6 p.m. on August 15th to 1 a.m. on August 16th.  More than four months later, Adams' death remains a mystery, but investigators say one call could bring her killer to justice. "If they noticed any kind of vehicle she might have gotten into, anybody she might have spoken to, a description, we would like to get some new information and maybe find a new direction to go," Winters said. 

Authorities urge anyone who has even a minor detail about Monica Adams' life or death that they think could help investigators to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.  You can remain anonymous.
