Please visit the memorial page for Teresa on Facebook maintained by a friend. It is filled with memories from old friends and pieces of newspaper clippings.
“Tess” was found on August 4, 1973, face down on her bed under a neatly arranged sheet. She had been strangled and stabbed in the chest and lower abdomen area. Her panty hose had been tied around her neck and her wrists bound with shoelaces. A paring knife taken from her own kitchen was found cupped in her hand.
Maryville police interviewed more than 200 people, took fingerprints from some 150 individuals and had six persons take lie detector tests.
Despite all that, the murder of Teresa Sue Hilt to this day remains unsolved, see the News And Tribune, 2/3/1974.
