PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Portsmouth police hope the 35th anniversary of the murder of a 23-year-old aspiring model and beauty school student will bring new information to light that will help solve two cold cases.
Detective Sgt. John Peracchi says he's optimistic that the person who fatally beat Laura Kempton inside her Portsmouth apartment on Sept. 28, 1981 will be apprehended.
Peracchi, lead investigator on the case from 2004 through 2010, says police are revisiting "everything."
Kempton's Portsmouth Beauty School classmate Tammi Little was also found beaten to death inside her apartment about one year later.
Retired detective Mike Leclaire says the two slayings have too many similarities to ignore. Little's killer was also never caught.
Modern techniques coupled with evidence collected years ago give Peracchi hope that the two cases will be solved.
