Publicker Jane Doe case: Bensalem police detective determined to give Lisa Todd justice

Lisa Todd's friends described her as a nice girl with a bit of a stubborn streak. She was not one to always follow the rules, especially when they got in the way of having fun with her friends.

That may have been why she went to the abandoned Publicker Distillery in Bucks County, near the border with Philadelphia, one day in 1985. It had become a spot for teens to hang out and party.

We don't know why Todd went into the woods that day, because she never came out. Her body was found in a concrete shaft there three years later, and it took over 30 more years, and some dedicated investigators, to discover Todd's identity and give her family some closure.

But it's not the end. Her death has been called suspicious and a criminal investigation remains active. With the victim identified, are the police any closer to finding a suspect?

Subscribers can read more and listen to Lisa Todd's story in the second episode of "Return to View," a true crime podcast hosted by Cole Johnson.

Bensalem Det. Chris McMullin has spent most of his career trying to find out who Publicker Jane Doe was. Now he wants to know how she died.
