36-year-old Candance Boley was discovered murdered in her home in Killeen, Texas, on July 11th, 2011. She hadn't been seen since July 9th. Over 10 people's DNA were found inside the home, but the case remains unsolved 10 years later. Her mother Terrie has made it her mission to change that. 

Leading Up to the Murder:
36-year-old Candance Boley was a legal specialist while serving her four years in the Marine Corps. Candance traveled and worked as a paralegal after his honorable discharge. She was working for a title company when the housing market crashed in 2006. By 2007, she went back to the military. This time with the Army and she ended up in Fort Hood.  

While at Fort Hood, Candance became involved in the drug world. She habitually used crack cocaine. The Army sent her to rehab but Candance still struggled with her addiction. By the end of 2010, she was discharged from the Army. 

Candance spent time with her family on the east coast, but decided to return to Killeen, Texas. There she was staying at a man's house. 

On July 9th, 2011, Candance was seen on the Texaco station's surveillance camera with a solider. It was the last day her family spoke to her as well. 

The Murder:
Candance was discovered by a friend on the evening of July 11th, 2011. She was wearing a green short sleeve shirt, black bra, blue jeans and a black belt--the same clothes she had on in the surveillance footage. Her hair was pulled back with a brown headband. According to the autopsy report she was discovered face down on her bedroom floor. 

Her body was in the early stages of decomposition. There were multiple blunt force trauma injuries to the skull, neck, trunk and extremities--including contusions to her brain, broken fingers, and lacerations to her head and body. The medical examiner Janis Townsend-Parchman noted signs of strangulation--specifically an abraded furrow across the front of her neck and fractured thyroid cartilage. 

What is not mentioned once in the autopsy is a gunshot or bullet found--even though that was what the Killeen Police Department reported. The conclusion of the medical examiner was that the manner of death was homicide and the cause of death was blunt force head injuries associated with strangulation. We also know a sexual assault test was conducted. But we don’t have those results.

Terrie was given a partial list of items that were collected from Candance’s home when police processed the scene. On it area a Samsung phone, a notebook that was on the table, a black purse containing a wallet and papers, three brass tubes, two hard drives, a wooden plaque, a razor knife and the hot water faucet handle. 

Also discovered at the scene was a broken and bloody necklace.  And there was also a cigarette butt collected from the front knee of Candance’s jeans. 13 different DNA profiles were present at the scene--one belonged to a serial predator William Razor.

36-year-old Candance Boley was last confirmed to have been seen alive on July 9th, 2011. A friend discovered her body on the evening of July 11th inside her bedroom on the Parmer Avenue home. She had been beaten and strangled. Her cause of death was blunt force trauma.
