AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) The Texas Department of Public Safety Thursday offered a reward of as much as $6,000 for information leading to an arrest in the 1983 murder of Susan Lee Eads, 19, whose body was found in in a vacant lot.

Eads was last seen on Aug. 30, 1983 leaving her job at Charlie’s Bar in Nassau Bay.

Her body was found the next day in the vacant lot in Seabrook.
