TULSA, Okla. — The Brittany Phillips cold case murder reached its 14th anniversary on September 28. Phillips' mother, Dr. Maggie Zingman is working toward new initiatives in honor of her daughter's case.
Phillips, 18, died in September 2004 in an apparent rape and murder in her apartment in east Tulsa. She had been dead for three days before she was found. Phillips was buried on what would have been her 19th birthday, October 4, 2004.
Officials have used various DNA testing methods to help find a suspect in the case but have not found anyone as an exact match.
In January 2018, the company Parabon Snapshot used the DNA gathered at the crime scene to create a composite sketch of a potential suspect. Tulsa police began using a specific type of DNA comparison to help narrow their search in August 2018.
Zingman scheduled a press conference at 11 a.m. Thursday to go over her latest initiatives in support of her daughter and these kinds of cases:
