SMITHFIELD, N.C. — Johnston County investigators are re-opening a murder case that's been cold for more than three decades.

Bonnie Neighbors disappeared in December 1972. The young mother of two was later found shot to death at a labor camp near Benson.

Sheriff Steve Bizzell said a newly formed cold case squad will start their work by looking at the unsolved case.
