Windsor Police are still looking for information to solve a murder that is more then 40 years old.

Police say that on May 14th, 1971 at 9pm, Lujbica Topic was playing with her eight year old brother in front of their residence at 1290 Drouillard when a white male approached Lujbica and her brother and asked Lujbica to accompany him down the block to assist him with a job. He told them that when the job was complete, he would pay each child $4.

The male then gave the boy ten cents to ride his bicycle around the block while waiting for his sister.

The boy watched the male suspect walk his sister south on Drouillard Road from Franklin Street. The brother ran into his residence and told his mother and aunt what had happened. The mother and aunt searched the area on Drouillard Road as far south as Seminole Street unsuccessfully, before returning home to call police. A large sale search was initiated.

On May 15th 1971, at 1am the body of Lujbica was discovered by police in the rear yard of 1690 Hickory Road.

If you have any information related to this unsolved crime, you are asked to call the Windsor Police Service at 519-255-6700, extension 4390 or contact Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477).
