Go back and read the first 3 pages of this thread. There have been new developments but none have been confirmed by police. One person claims to have known the killer and wrote to one of the posters on this board and gave a name.

The father of the security guard in question died yesterday and in an article praising the man and his service to the community in an online newspaper, someone commented that they wondered if his son would come clean now

If he did do it I hope he comes clean and confesses.
Tracy's family deserves justice.

This case has that weird feeling of a cover up.

For what it's worth, the new UM (with Farina) had an "UPDATE" at the end of the segment which said that "Sean/Don" had be ruled out as a supect in Tracy's death. They did not elaborate on why, just simply said he is no longer considered a suspect in her murder.

From what I remember there was never any credible evidence available in which to link this individual to the murder of Tracy Lynn Kirkpatrick. I remembering discussing this case several times in the past and the general vibe I got from this individual was similar to a lot of the allegations that have been thrown in the direction of Tim Binder in that his actions or statements made him look more like a potential suspect than he actually was.

Echoing another forum member's sentiments, this does seem like one of those cases where a conclusion should've been reached rather easily but for some reason that hasn't been the case. It does make you question the investigation into this murder and why this has proven to be such a difficult solve.

Tracey was only 18 years old during the time she got killed, back then.

Reading earlier posts in this thread and another Tracy Kirkpatrick thread, I feel strongly that the security guard who found her body is the one responsible. There was a link to an article posted in one of the threads that said he walked by the store at 9:00 and then returned at 10:30 and noticed the lights were still on in the store which is when he went in and found Tracy's body. IIRC, another poster made a statement about how small the strip mall was and that it would be impossible for him to have not noticed the lights being on for a full hour and a half. And I also read that another poster said that from 9-10:30 the guards whereabouts were unknown, he had no alibi, and he also allegedly went to the house of his ex-wife to pick up a different suit to change into that night.

If anyone is interested, here's a recent article on the case. Apologies in advance if it was posted elsewhere. I put the link first, then the text

Who killed Tracey Kirkpatrick?
By Courtney Mabeus News-Post Staff | Posted: Saturday, March 15, 2014 2:00 am

Twenty-five years ago today, a security guard found the body of 17-year-old Tracey Kirkpatrick in a storage room at Aileen's Ladies Sportswear in the Westridge Shopping Center on the Golden Mile.

The Brunswick High School senior had been stabbed to death.
Her killer remains at large.

Tracey's murder is among the most well-known cold cases in Frederick, in part because of its brutality. She was stabbed multiple times in the chest and back sometime between 8 p.m., the time her manager stopped by, and 10:30 p.m., when an off-duty Frederick County sheriff's deputy moonlighting as a security guard found her.

The teenager never got the shot at life that she deserved. Tracey was a hard worker with aspirations, intent on going to a small college to study accounting and then law school.

No money was taken from the store. Tracey was not sexually assaulted.

Police do not know if the crime was committed by someone who knew her or perhaps a drifter passing through the city. No one was ever charged in the case, according to Lt. Clark Pennington, Frederick Police Department spokesman and commander of the criminal investigation unit.

Police know the killer used a knife, but the murder weapon was not found, Pennington said.

“We're talking about a brutally heinous crime,” he said. “It was such a shocking case. She was and is a true victim.”

Every anniversary of Tracey's death is an opportunity to bring attention to unsolved murder cases, hers and others. Frederick police are still searching for killers in about a dozen cold cases.

Police do not know who shot and killed Lamont Ellis, 36, as he walked to his car in Mullinix Alley on Sept. 30, 2012, after a night out with friends.

Police are also still investigating the stabbing of a man who was found injured in July on Willowdale Drive. The man later died at the hospital.

The Kirkpatrick family will mourn Tracey's death quietly this year, her older sister Deonda Fitzpatrick said in a brief phone conversation with The Frederick News-Post earlier this week.

The family will honor Tracey with a candlelight vigil tonight at 7:30 at a tree planted in her memory at Brunswick High School.

“It's still on our minds,” Deonda Kirkpatrick said. “We still think about it. It's still there.”

Pennington said Frederick police are still working the case and still get tips. In February 2012, he and other members of the department went to Philadelphia to present the case to the Vidocq Society, an organization of elite criminal investigation experts.

Because the case is still under investigation, Pennington would not reveal the results of the Vidocq meeting. He said the department continues to meet with the Kirkpatrick family.

As technology improves, police have the opportunity to apply new science to old evidence, Pennington said.

“We have evidence in all our cases,” he said.

Police are going back, interviewing former officers who worked at the department to see if new clues can be uncovered, Pennington said; earlier this year, a representative from the department interviewed a former captain involved in the case who now lives in Florida.

“If there is a name listed in the file, we are interviewing them,” he said.
Deonda Kirkpatrick recently wrote a letter to Tracey. In it, she described making a photo collage with her sister as a Christmas gift for their parents last year. She realized how much Tracey still lives on. Tracey's compassionate heart and feisty attitude are reflected in her nieces and nephews, Deonda Kirkpatrick wrote, adding that "you have made yourself a part of everything and everyone in this family."

"You help us cope day-to-day in seeing your amazing attributes in this and the next generation."

This is one of those cases that I'm shocked hasn't been solved. R-reading this thread and we have a poster who claims to know someone associated with the Police Department back then. This poster says this case was bungled from the beginning and could have been solved easily within 24 hours. I wonder how that guy knows that?

Which thread was it where a random poster came on here and claimed that they believed their father to be Tracy's killer? IIRC, this poster started direct messaging one of our forum regulars. Which forum regular was it? Does anyone remember this?

I use dto work with a guy that was a former Maryland State Policeman working out of Frederick County. I asked him about this case one day (At first, he said the name sounded familiar but didn't remember the case. As soon as I started giving him details, he remembered immediately). He said that the Frederick Police should have immediately called the MD State Police for assistance (due to the location of the crime, near a major highway). He said if that had happened, the case propbably could have been solved (through a cooperative effort) with 24 hours. However, the Frederick police have a reputation (according to him) for being above other law enforcement attitude-wise. They would refuse to admit they needed any assistance on any case. furthermore, my buddy stated many of the members of the Frederick police (at that time) were just lazy (he gave a story of a shooting call to which both state police and Frederick police responded. The guy was in his home, with his head half-blown off with a shotgun and the blood was already starting to gel. The Frederick officer asked the wife what happened. She simply responded "He shot himself about 10 minutes ago". He asked her no other questions (and was going to write it off as a suicide) and began to write down the info. It later turns out that the husband and wife had an argument. She shot him --with help from her sister--and then waited 30 mins. prior to calling any police, presumably to cover up the crime. The lady and sister were both later convicted but it shows how poorly the Frederick county officer handled the case.).

Sadly, it seems that the Tracy Kirkpatrick case should have been solved long ago.

If you are referring to my old post, the retired MD State Trooper said it could have been solved within 24 hours if Fredrick county had immediately contacted the MD State Police for assistance. He said the joint effort would have likely led to a quick solve and arrest.

This is one of those cases that has always stuck with me too.

Here's the Facebook page maintained (by the family?). It seems to be fairly active.
