Eastern Idaho law enforcement officials have reopened a cold case—the case is so cold, it has been on ice since 1979, when a headless torso was discovered near the Civil Defense Caves in rural Clark County (population less than 1,000). Two years after the torso was discovered, arms and legs were also discovered but a head has never been found.

KIDK-TV reports that the Clark County Sheriff's Office will now turn to a team from Idaho State University and new technology to help identify the victim. Deputy John Clements said the technology will allow investigators to "locate really good potential places to search."

"This is not a celebratory occasion," ISU graduate student Daria Van Dolsen told KIDK-TV. "This is a horrible thing that happened to somebody." 

Law enforcement is hoping that renewed interest in the case might encourage the public to provide even the "smallest piece of information." The Clark County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to call 208-374-5403
with any tips.
