In November 1948, Boulder was shocked with the sensational murder of University of Colorado student Theresa Foster.

Two days after friends reported the freshman engineering student missing, rabbit hunters found her half-nude and beaten body in a frozen canal on Rocky Flats in Jefferson County, south of town.

Theresa Catherine Foster

Two nights earlier, Theresa Catherine Foster, an eighteen-year-old engineering student at the University of Colorado, had attended a rosary service on the Boulder campus. She'd left shortly after ten on foot, heading downtown on well-lit Broadway - her usual route to a faculty member's house on Spruce Street, where she did a few household chores in exchange for lodging.
She never got there. The professor's family discovered her absence the next morning and contacted the police.
Her parents said it wasn't like Theresa to disappear like that. A sturdy, dependable girl, the ninth of eleven children, she'd grown up on a farm outside Greeley, milking cows and hunting, and barking orders at hired hands. She was also an honor student, religious and a bit boy-shy, though she did have a high-school sweetheart named Bobby. She didn't swear or smoke, and she certainly wasn't the type to get into a car with a strange man - not willingly.
...
Theresa, it seemed, had put up a hell of a fight.
"I know she's dead," Mrs. Foster told reporters.
