Lambton County OPP have updated the investigation into a death, 44 years ago.

Police now believe 14 year old Karen Ann Caughlin may not have been murdered in March of 1974, but rather she died after being hit by a car.  Her injuries have been determined to be consistent with that type of incident. Police say she had been moved from where she was hit to where her body was ultimately discovered. At a news conference this week, investigators said they have been looking at historical weather data that may provide clues to the conditions at the time of the collision. Police say they are still looking for any new information from the public.
