On August 31, 1981, forty-five year old Frances Sawyer left her home to go to work at a local realtor.  Frances's husband Ray reported he spoke to her while she was at work that day and she mentioned stopping to shop on her way home.  Frances left her work site at approximately 5:00 PM that day telling co-workers she was going straight home because she was tired.  Glendale Patrol Officers responded to a call of a body lying on the side of the roadway at 51 Ave and Phelps Rd at approximately 9:30 PM.  The body of Frances Sawyer was found lying on the side of the road in the area, the obvious victim of a homicide.  Frances's car was later recovered approximately two miles away at 38 Ave and Bell Rd in the City of Phoenix. Frances's personal belongings were found untouched inside of the vehicle.
