This case goes back to 1982.

Feb. 25 at Compton Terrace in Tempe. John Kinsora, 19, is there watching AC/DC in concert.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch said Kinsora went to a party at a house near 16th Street and Indian School after the concert.

"Then, because he'd had too much too drink, he decided to walk home. He was never seen or heard from again."

There was no crime scene and no body was ever found but homicide detectives believe he was murdered.

"John had a great relationship with his parents, he'd just put down a deposit on an apartment that he was moving into with a friend and he had a good job at Motorola. In fact, he had a paycheck waiting for him that he never picked up," said Burch.

Next we head to north Phoenix where a thief was quick to snag a credit card that a customer left on the counter at Dave & Busters. She then went on a shopping spree in the same area, Desert Ridge Marketplace.

"She spent almost $1,300 in a single hour," said Burch, "That's a lot of damage in a single hour."

She hit the Target first then filled-up her tank at the Super Pumper. Fortunately, surveillance videos were watching her as she filled her shopping cart.
