Even the location of the crime scene can provide helpful information to authorities.

Authorities say she died from multiple gun shot wounds -- and Davis says they are also looking into a possible struggle at the crime scene.
And now that investigators have found her body-- the hope is that this latest development may trigger someone's memory.

For now, the board's decision will only affect this year's incoming freshmen.
