Nearly 10 years later, investigators are searching for new clues in the death of a woman whose remains were found in a Bartholomew County field.
On the night of June 17, 2002, Nancy Lyons' red 1993 Nissan was found abandoned with a flat tire but still running near County Road 700 West at County Road 500 North in Rush County.
The 46-year-old Carthage woman's purse and ID were in the car, but she was nowhere to be found, police said.
Nearly four months later, skeletal remains identified as Lyons' were discovered in a field along County Road 1000 East, between County Roads 200 South and 300 South, in Bartholomew County.
Police said Lyons shopped at the Rushville Walmart shortly before her disappearance.
"As the 10-year anniversary of this heinous crime approaches, the Indiana State Police is asking for your help," the agency said in a news release.
Anyone who may have seen Lyons that night or has information about the case is asked to call the Pendleton District investigative commander at 800-527-4752, or 765-778-2121. Tips can be made anonymously.
