BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — The family of a murder victim in Bucks County finally has some closure, 44 years after she was killed. The Bucks County district attorney returned a ring to the sister of Shaun Eileen Ritterson.
She was just 20 years old when she was killed and dumped on the side of a road back in 1977.
The ring had been sitting in an evidence locker until Ritterson’s sister asked about it recently.
The prime suspect in the murder has died, so investigators have never actually determined who killed Ritterson.
Officials say her sister plans to wear the returned ring on a necklace.
