ON SEPTEMBER 6, 1957 Dorothy Thomas was stabbed to death at the dry cleaners where she worked in Tallahassee, Florida--no one has been brought to justice for the crime. The pretty 27-year-old brunette was an employee of Nu Way Cleaners on Tennessee Street at the time. Cops believe that between 9 and 10 a.m. she was murdered. A deliveryman later discovered her body, a bloody mess stashed in a washroom. She was the only employee working at the time and cops say there was evidence a customer was in the business just before she was killed. She was ten dragged from the front area of the business to the bathroom where she was stabbed. Evidence discovered at the scene linked the heinous crime to a particular suspect. He is still alive and today lives free in another state.
