Episode 26: The Solved Cold Case of Krystal Beslanowitch

It's Crime Time

On December 14, 1995, 17-year-old Krystal Beslanowitch set off on foot to go to  a convenience store in Salt Lake City, Utah at 8:45 PM, but never returned to the motel her and her boyfriend, Chris were living in. Chris walked to the convenience store to search for Krystal, but the employees say they never saw her there.  Two days later, the nude, battered body of a teenage female was found on the bank of the Provo River. She had been beaten to death with granite rocks. Her boyfriend phoned the police after seeing drawings of the Jane Doe's tattoos on the news to tell them he believes the body was that of his girlfriend, Tracy Beslanowitch. It was later determined that Krystal had been using the identity of her step-sister, Tracy, and that the Jane Doe was in fact Krystal.  18 years later, the murder was solved using new technology known as the M-Vac when police were able to take DNA from the rocks at the crime scene used to kill Krystal.  Sources: Savage, Laiken.

Test Tube Testimony

Krystal Beslanowitch was like many teenagers- eager to get out on her own, have new experiences, and move away from her hometown. In 1995, she picked up and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah with her boyfriend. Krystal and her boyfriend had only been living in Utah for about 5 months when she went out to run an errand and never returned home. The next day, her body was found along the Provo River. It appeared she had been beaten to death with rocks found along the river's edge. Her case went unsolved for years, until a unique new tool to pick up trace amounts of DNA from the murder weapons shed light on the killer's identity.For a list of sources, listen to the notes at the end of the episode and visit our Instagram page @testtubetestimony.
