The New York State Police Troop F Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Middletown continues to investigate the 2003 murder of Megan McDonald.
The 20-year-old's body was found on March 15, 2003, in a field off Bowser Road in the town of Wallkill in Orange County. The cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma, police say.
“It was a very vicious attack on this young girl, and she had a very promising future ahead of her,” Detectives’ Endowment Association in New York City President Paul DiGiacomo told WPIX. "And to take that away from Megan and her family, there has to be consequences.”
Her 1991 white Mercury Sable was found two days later in the Kensington Manor apartment complex parking lot, in the town of Wallkill.
