For this episode I spoke to sisters Deni and Dusty, who are the nieces of Vickie Lynn Brekke who was murdered in 1978. She was only 15. Vickie died over four decades ago and her family still has no answers. On May 7, 1978, Vickie Brekke, 15, left her Las Vegas home to visit her best friend as she often did. However, Vickie never made it to the friend’s house. The next day (May 8th) Vickie’s body was found in the desert. Someone had strangled her.

In this interview, Deni and Dusty said their mother, who was Vickie’s sister spent much of her life trying to figure out who killed her sister. She has since passed without ever knowing who killed Vickie. The mystery of who killed Vickie Brekke has now been handed off to her two nieces Deni and Dusty who won’t rest until they find out who killed their Aunt Vickie. These sisters are determined to get answers. They believe their aunt was killed by someone she knew.
