Norris Evans was 27 years old when her lifeless body was found inside her residence in Monroe County, New York, nearly five decades ago, and authorities have yet to apprehend the person responsible for her death.
On May 22, 1975, Evans’ husband went to work at the Rochester Products Division of General Motors while she remained at home on Kron St. in Rochester, caring for their four children.
They were 2, 4, 6, and 3 months old.
When his shift ended the following morning, May 23, 1975, just shortly after midnight, he returned to his home and discovered it had been ransacked.
He also found his wife dead on the living room floor, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.
Evans was naked except for a blouse, and a diaper had been wrapped around her ankles. Experts believe she died at least four hours before her husband found her body.
An autopsy revealed that she had been stabbed several times in the chest and neck with a butcher knife, which authorities found adjacent to her body.
They also located a cast-iron frying pan nearby.
Officials stated that the children were inside the home during the crime.
Considering the killer took an undetermined amount of money from the home, investigators believe robbery may have been the motive behind the killing, as well as sexual assault.
Law enforcement officers have not made any arrests in Evans’ case.
