(LAMBTON, ON) - Karen Ann CAUGHLIN was last seen alive on the night of Friday, March 15, 1974. Undaunted, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) continue to actively seek a resolution for precisely 45 years.
Karen CAUGHLIN was a popular teenager in her hometown of Sarnia. After attending social events with friends on a Friday night, the 14-year-old's lifeless body was discovered the next morning -- some 22-kilometres away from the last place she was seen alive. Karen was left near the side of the then-6th Sideroad or Freer Road, now known as Plowing Match Road, between Churchill Line and Lasalle Line in Lambton County.
In 2017, police revealed science-based information that Karen's injuries were consistent with that of being hit by a motor vehicle. Karen was then moved from the location where she sustained the fatal injuries to where her body was ultimately discovered.
