Next month will be the 41st anniversary of the murder of 13-year-old Jacalyn Harp, who was strangled with her own leather flag carrier after she left practice for the Midland Park, NJ Imperial Knights All-Girls Drum & Bugle Corps.

Nobody has been charged in the case, although one guy's name has surfaced often as a possible suspect. He is a suspect in many other unsolved murders of that era.

Here is a small piece about it on a crime sleuths website:

I've been following this case for decades, since I first read about it in Drum Corps News.
Hard to believe that nothing has helped to solve this crime.
