rnFORT WAYNE, IN, COLD CASE → April Tinsley was your typical eight year oldrnbut that all changed on good Friday, April 1st, 1988, also known as ”April fools day”.rnApril was on her way home from a friend’s house in Fort Wayne, Indiana when she wasrnkidnapped, raped and murdered by an unknown killer,  Three days later, her body was found onrnthe side of the road, approximately 20 miles away, in an area of farmland.

rn

Fort Wayne police department and other law enforcement agenciesrnworked around the clock looking for April’s killer, media ended up drawing in many tips andrnleads which all lead to dead ends. April’s case has even made it to ‘America’srnMost Wanted’ to no avail. However, John Walsh, host of the show, visited Fort Wayne onrnAugust 20th, 2012 to film the second episode of April’s murder hoping for answers orrninformation.

rn

Very little information or details are known about the killer. He isrnmale, Caucasian or Hispanic and was last seen in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Below is a composite sketchrnof what April’s killer might look.

Two years after the murder of April Tinsley, a note appeared on arnbarn door near where her body was found. The note, seen below, read rn“I kill 8 yea old April Marie Tinsley. I will kill again”  Near thernmessage, rn“ha ha” was faintly scrawled. Fourteen more years had passed when four morernnotes in a similar handwriting began appearing at several Fort Wayne residences. Three were left onrnlittle girls’ bikes; the fourth was in a mailbox. Whom ever wrote the notes claimedrnresponsibility for the murder of April Tinsley and threatened to kill again.  They werernwritten on yellow lined paper and placed in baggies that included used condoms and/or Polaroidrnphotos. The notes stopped in 2004 and the killer hasn’t been heard from since. This couldrnindicate a couple of things, he passed away or is currently in jail for a separate crime.
