Oswego (WSYR-TV) – 30 years ago this week, Nancy Jo Scamurra disappeared from Amherst, NY – and two weeks later, her remains were discovered by the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office.

Nancy Jo Scamurra was 14 years old when she disappeared on July 1, 1984.

The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol Division found a torso in Lake Ontario two weeks later on July 14.

The torso belonged to a teenage girl who had been decapitated and dismembered, according to the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office.

Several years ago, DNA evidence confirmed that the remains were Scamurra’s.

The Sheriff’s Office says they are still looking for leads in Scamurra’s case. They are using its anniversary as a way of keeping the case alive.

Scamurra was last seen walking alone in the area of Scamridge Curve and Evanshire Lane in Amherst.

She may have been walking with the family’s German Shepard dog, which returned home.

Anyone with any information involving this investigation is asked to contact the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office at (315) 349-3411 or at 1 (888) 349-3411 or to e-mail sheriff@oswegocounty.com.
