Her parents are 1933-2006 Norman Vincent Mullins of Columbus and Phyllis Eileen Marine of Union County, Ohio.
Christie Lynn Mullins was kidnapped and murdered on the 23 August 1975. The murder of Christie Lynn occurred in a dense woods behind the WOOLCO Department store in the Graceland shopping center, Columbus Ohio.
Her hands had been bound with telephone wire and her clothing was partially stripped. She was struck in the head multiple times by a two-by-four board.
There was a witness to the murder; however one questions why the witness did not attempt to stop the murder or call police. Her father told the Police our family thought he was the killer .... Forty years later in 2015 the Police announced he was the perpetrator. Problem is he is already dead. Justice will prevail on the other side.
event date: 23 Aug 1975
event place: Columbus (Pt), Franklin, Ohio, United States
Our family still grieves over the loss of Christy and knowing her killer was never brought to justice after so many years. We love you Christie
Her father went to his grave seeking justice for his beloved daughter and never found it.
In 5 days Christy Lynn would have been 15.
