News: C&J launches website and coalition effort to solve 1995 murder of Rosie Tapia
// Nov 20, 2017
In a press conference outside the apartment building where she was abducted, Karra Porter and JD Lauritzen pleaded with the public to help obtain information relating to an unsolved murder from 1995.
Rosie Tapia was 6 years old when she disappeared from her bedroom at the Hartland Apartments at 1616 Snow Queen Place (about 1700 West and 1700 South) in Salt Lake City in the early morning hours of Aug. 13, 1995.
Rosie was taken from a bedroom of the family apartment, brutally sexually assaulted and dumped into a nearby canal, where her body was discovered hours later.
Her killer has never been arrested. Now, 22 years later, her family still seeks justice. They want an arrest and they want you not just to help but to solve this horrendous crime.
The family is asking for people to come forward with any information that might be useful in anyway.
They want to hear from everyone who might have information, but particularly if you:
Lived in the Hartland Apartments in 1995
Visited the apartments or were in the area in the months surronding the murder
Were friends with Rosie or family members
Had kids who played on the playground there or knew kids who did
Were familiar with anyone who lived in the apartments who might have seen someone on the playground or around the area
