Frederick Police Department officials said they hope a television show segment tonight about the March 15, 1989, murder of a 17-year-old girl at a ladies sportswear store will generate new leads in the investigation.

The story about the stabbing death of Brunswick High School senior Tracey Kirkpatrick will air at 11 p.m. on NBC 4 Washington, according to a news release from the Frederick Police Department.

The story about Kirkpatrick is being told as part of a cold case series the TV station is airing to bring attention to unsolved crimes, according to the release.

Kirkpatrick was working at a ladies sportswear store in the Westridge Shopping Center. A security guard conducting checks of the shopping center noticed the lights of the business were on after closing, the release said. He entered the store and found Kirkpatrick stabbed in a back storage room, the release said.
