Twenty-four years ago — the morning of September 14, 1992 — the body of 27-year-old Susan Taraskiewicz was found in the trunk of her car, which had been left at an auto body shop on Route 1A in Revere. She had been murdered.
Susan, who lived in Saugus with her family, was a ramp supervisor for Northwest Airlines at Logan Airport. At the time of her death, other Northwest ramp employees were involved in a major credit card theft ring. Susan, who had endured vicious harassment from her co-workers, was not part of the ring.
Her murder was investigated by the Massachusetts State Police, Revere Police, and Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. Numerous leads and theories were pursued by detectives. Despite their intensive efforts, no one has been charged with Susan’s murder. Yet.
Today, nearly a quarter of a century after her homicide, Susan’s case remains extremely active. Investigators work the case every day, and know that there are people with knowledge of the murder who have not yet told what they know.
To support the intensive investigation, the State Police are producing a video with Susan’s mother, Marlene, about the case. As well, Clear Channel Outdoor has graciously donated electronic billboard space, starting today, to help solicit information about the case. That video and the billboard will be posted on our Facebook page and other media platforms in the coming days.
Justice for Susan is long overdue. Help us speak for her and bring some peace to her family. If you have any information about Susan or her murder, please do the right thing. Please call the Massachusetts State Police at 617-727-8817.
Your information can be the difference — between evil going unpunished, or justice, at last, being found.
