EAST MILLINOCKET — The mother of a Maine girl killed in 1980 wants the FBI to take over the investigation.

Pamela McLain made the comments on Sunday, the 30th anniversary of the killing of her 16-year-old daughter Joyce, who was apparently abducted while jogging in East Millinocket.

McLain says she’s disappointed there hasn’t been a break in the case in the last two years, since the girl’s body was exhumed and investigators retrieved what they said were usable DNA samples.

Over the years the unsolved killing has been the focus of intense publicity, including a national television show and magazine article.

McLain tells the Bangor Daily News police have about a dozen suspects or people of interest in the case.
