VERMILLION, S.D. (KTIV) -

The case of Pam Jackson and Cheryl Miller has held the attention of people in the area for decades.

Paul Hasse ran a teen rec center back in 1971 where the girls and many of their classmates hung out.

He knew the Miller and Jackson families and wondered for years what happened to their daughters.

Immediately after their disappearance, investigators concentrated their search along the Missouri River.

Hasse believes the case could have been solved a long time ago, had authorities searched the last place the girls were seen.

"When those two girls disappeared that evening it was a big mystery for a number of years, and I believe the investigation was botched,” Paul Hasse, a Vermillion, SD resident said.

Hasse said Monday's news will help the entire community move on from the tragedy.
