A 50-year-old cold case investigation may cause some delays in your morning commute if you travel through Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara Police Department is bringing in cadaver dogs to search the area for evidence.
Police say 7-year-old Ramona Price was last seen back in 1961 in the area of Modoc Road in Santa Barbara. About four years ago, investigators received information that led them to believe Price's body may be buried beneath the Winchester Overcrossing.
The ramp will be closed Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. because new construction is giving investigators a chance to search the area with cadaver dogs.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the girl may have encountered a man named Mack Ray Edwards who worked on the bridge when it was built. Edwards confessed to killing six other children and later hanged himself in his prison cell. Investigators believe he may have killed 15-20 children.
Police said Price was a student at Adams School and disappeared from the area of Modoc Road in Santa Barbara. The case remained unsolved, and her whereabouts or the location of her body was never determined.
