20-year-old Veronica Hepworth's partially-clothed body was discovered along a driveway in Loudoun County on the morning of Feb. 25, 1982. She was noticed by a passerby driving along Route 50 in the area of Route 15 near Gilberts Corner. 

Hepworth was last seen around 1:30 a.m. that same morning at the Fancy Dancer Bar on Route 1 in Fairfax County. It is unknown whether Hepworth left the bar alone. 

Based on tips and witness information, a red pickup truck was seen near the farm where her body was discovered. 

Police are now asking for the public's help in identifying a man who was Hepworth's last-known, serious boyfriend. The man is believed to be in his fifties today. 

Anyone with information should call the Virginia State Police at 703-376-1690, or the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office at 703-737-8487.
