FOX 25’s Bob Ward revisited the unsolved murder of an 18-year-old Boston woman as a part of his New England’s Unsolved segment.
Faye Polner was home on break from her studies at Occidental College in California when she was found strangled to death inside her father’s car.
The car was found in the parking lot of the Joseph E. Lee School in Dorchester on the morning of April 28, 1979. Investigators say it doesn’t appear that Faye was familiar with the school and she had been dead for several hours before she was found.
One investigator tells Bob Ward that the strangling murder seems personal, saying it can’t get much more personal than strangling someone. They also can’t tell whether Faye or the killer drove the car to the school.
The night before Faye was found dead, an unidentified man canceled a date with her because it was raining and he drove a motorcycle. Police say they are in contact with the man, and that he is cooperating with their investigation.
Over 30 years later, Boston investigators are still working to find people who may have had contact with Faye on the night of her murder.
Police ask anyone with information, to contact: Boston Police Crimestoppers at 1-800-494.TIPS.
