Investigators Looking to Solve Cold Case

Investigators exhumed the remains of a Columbia County woman murdered 28 years ago.

Investigators reopened the case of 18-year-old Marilyn McIntyre last year.

McIntyre was beaten, strangled, and stabbed in her Columbus home in March of 1980.

Tuesday, the Columbia County Sheriff's Department exhumed her remains from a cemetery in Dodge County.

Deputies say they agreed to reopen the cold case at the request of family members and the Columbus Police Department.

A sheriff's lieutenant says the department got a tip during the summer of 2007 about a murder that led it to reopen the case.
