NOW: Ozaukee County sheriff to share ’significant findings’ in 1984 cold case murder

OZAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Ozaukee County sheriff will be giving an update on the murder of 18-year-old Traci Hammerberg, a nearly 35-year cold case.

The sheriff will be holding and live streaming a press conference to share “significant findings” in this case on Tuesday.

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul is also expected to speak during the press conference.

Hammerberg was found dead in the Town of Grafton in the early morning hours of December 15th 1984.

Her partially clothed body was found in a driveway off of Maple Drive.

Investigators say she was sexually assaulted and murdered.

Hammerberg was from Saukville and attended Port Washington High School.

She had been at a party the night before she was found dead, and investigators have been looking for her killer ever since.

Hammerberg’s friends are holding onto hope that an arrest will finally be made.

“They’ve been living free all this time,” Teri Simms, friend of Hammerberg, said. “That’s not OK. I’m hoping they have a break because this has been way too long.”

The press conference is scheduled to start at 2 p.m.
