Michelle Angela Garvey was a teenage girl who had run away from home in 1982 and her body was then found a month later in Texas. She was identified after a contributor on Websleuths submitted a tip of a possible match to the Harris County coroner's office.
Garvey is believed to escape from her residence in Connecticut through an open window and likely hitchhiked. It is unknown how she arrived in Texas.
Her body was discovered a month after she vanished. She was strangled and sexually assaulted. No bra or shoes were recovered from the scene.
It has been theorized she is a victim of the Texas Killing Fields murders.
