Open Case

  Name: Teryl Steele Orcutt

Clay County, Fl | 1990-01-28

Cause of Death: Stabbed

Case Data

On Sunday, January 21, 1990 at 0730 hours, officers of the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Green Cove Springs, Florida discovered Teryl's red, 1989 Thunderbird parked along a rural county road in Middleburg, Florida. On Sunday, January 28, 1990, after an intense search, Teryl's body was found approximately four miles from where her car had been located. She had been stabbed to death and her body dumped near a river. It could not be determined if she had been sexually violated due to the condition of the body. The death is believed to have been a sexual homicide due to the fact that she was found to be clad only in panties (rolled down to the knees), socks and tennis shoes. This homicide has remained open and actively investigated since 1990. Hundreds of people have been interviewed, interrogated and polygraphed (taken lie-detector tests). Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact: Robbery/Homicide Unit for the Clay County Sheriff's Office at 904-264-6512. Clay County Sheriff's Office

Someone knows exactly what happened. What have you heard?

2016-02-28 09:04:00 - Savage: A clay county police officer killed her..... pulled her over on 218, then murdered her in the woods. CCSO already knows this. Any contact with officers will not help.

2016-05-01 22:08:41 - ShowMeGirl: Why do you think it was Clay County Police officer? I have been doing so much research on this case. I'm very intrigued by the case and talking to the family. I am majoring in psych and criminal justice. I could understand the theory of it being someone that was impersonating a police officer but not a real police officer. Stabbing Teryl doesn't add up with the other kinds of weapons a real police officer would have. I'm interested in your thoughts and how familiar you are with this case.
