Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers and investigators of the homicide cold case squad are seeking information on two unsolved murders from 1992. In both cases the victims were young black women; they were strangled seven to 12 days apart and found in the same vicinity.

The first victim, 23-year-old Michele Hill Moore, was found May 19 on an overgrown hillside on Renfrew Street in Larimer. She was last seen alive on Friday night, May 15.

The second victim was 15-year-old Demetria Holland. She was found May 27 behind an industrial building in the 7500 block of Thomas Boulevard in North Point Breeze. She was last seen alive the preceding night.

There were some similarities between the victims and their cause of death, leading investigators to believe the murders may have been related.

Investigators are asking anyone with any information to call Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers at 412-255-TIPS or the homicide office at 412-323-7161.

Persons calling won't have to identify themselves and anyone providing investigators with information leading to an arrest would be eligible to receive a Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000.
