Crime Trackers: Grandmother beaten and strangled 22 years ago remains a mystery

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON- A grandmother living in Three Points was brutally murdered 22 years ago.  The Pima County Sheriff's Cold Case detectives say she was beaten and strangled. 

Now, they’re hoping the public comes forward with information to help solve this case.  Detective Jason Davila is working on the case.  

“An individual that would be willing to attack a helpless elderly woman needs to be stopped and taken off the street,” said Det. Davila.

Mary Kring was 75 years old.  Her body was found on January 17, 1994 by her grandson.  

“The crime was violent, and mainly personal,” added Det. Davila. 

According to investigators, family members had seen her two days prior. A grandson who lived out of state spoke to Kring the day before and alerted a cousin to check on her when she didn't answer the phone the following day.

The investigation showed there was no forced entry into the home and there were no signs the house had been ransacked. 

“Mrs. Kring was either familiar or knew the person she allowed in her residence," said Det. Davila. "The person who ultimately attacked and killed her.”

Investigators collected a large amount of evidence from the scene and hope it can help create new leads. 

“From 1994 to 2016, there's been many advances with DNA and we're hoping to re-investigate and reanalyze these pieces of evidence,” Det. Davila said.

Detectives need your help to solve this case.  If you have information call 911 or if you want to remain anonymous, call 88-CRIME.
