— Investigators have reopened a 15-year-old unsolved homicide case, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation announced Thursday.

Tiffany Johnston, 19, was abducted July 26, 1997, from Sunshine Car Wash, 7709 NW 23. The next day, her body was found on Gregory Road in Canadian County, just south of Interstate 40. She had been strangled, the medical examiner's office determined.

Despite numerous tips and leads, the case went cold in 2005.

Johnston's case has been assigned to a new agent and the OSBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her killer, according to an OSBI statement.

Tips and information should be directed to the agency's hotline at (800) 522-8017.
