ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa -- Officials hope a $10,000 reward will help them solve the 30-year-old murder of a woman whose body was found in northwest Iowa.

The Lyon County Sheriff's Office announced today that deputies are going door-to-door to speak with people living within a five-mile radius of where Wilma June Nissen's body was found on Oct. 4, 1978 in rural Rock Rapids.

The 23-year-old woman's bady decomposed body went unidentified until 2006, when her fingerprint was matched with records on file with the Los Angeles Police Department.

Nissen, who was born in California, was exhumed from a Rock Rapids cemetery in 2007 so analysts could examine her body for new clues about her death.
