Lamotte murder
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is asking for the publicís help in it's effort to piece together information regarding a homicide that took place more than 30 years ago. In April 1985, the body of a young female was found partially decomposed along Interstate 81 in Greene County near Exit 44. TBI Special Agents ruled the case was a homicide. Autopsy results revealed the victim died approximately three weeks before her body was discovered. A sample of the victimís remains was submitted and a DNA profile for the victim was developed. This week, the victim was identified as 17-year-old Elizabeth Lamotte, who was missing from New Hampshire. Lamotte was last seen in November 1984, but it wasnít until last year that detectives located members of her family and obtained DNA samples from them. Those samples ultimately resulted in Lamotte being identified. Now TBI Special Agents are asking for the publicís help in developing new leads in the case. Anyone with information regarding Lamotteís murder, specifically knowledge about individuals she may have been with her in the days before she died, is asked to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463).
