Cortney Clayton went for an evening walk on the evening of Sept. 2, 1988 to get a soda from a nearby convenience store in her tiny hometown of Stamford, Texas. The pretty little girl never came home and on Sunday, March 26, 1989 the 7-year-old's remains were discovered in a field 50 miles away.
Her family said that she was a smart, adventurous and happy child. With just 4,000 people, many townspeople have always felt the killer was from Stamford.
''I have always felt that somebody here in town knows something,''  Candy Clayton, Cortney's mother, said in 2007. ''Even if they don't know they know it. 'One good thing about living in Stamford is that people here haven't forgotten about Cortney." By the time Cortney's body was found by a hunter, there was little evidence at the scene.
